Can Nintendo Bounce Back?

Don't write off Nintendo's (NASDAQOTH: NTDOY  )  chances for a strong holiday season just yet. Yes, even with a year's head start, the company's next-generation Wii U has been badly trailing sales of current-gen consoles from Microsoft (NASDAQ: MSFT  )  and Sony (NYSE: SNE  ) . But that could be set to change soon.

In the video below, Fool contributor Demitrios Kalogeropoulos argues that new sales figures point to a potential recovery for the beleaguered video game maker, as Nintendo readies a strong slate of first-party games for release in the months ahead.

    Hey Fabin81, I feel your pain. I held Nintendo for about 2 years and took a loss on it myself. If you believe the Wii U will catch up this holiday, though, I think that's a great reason to hold on to shares. There's a lot of negativity priced in right now so a decent recovery isn't out of the question.
