In a new statement from Nintendo, the company shared its vision for the near future and what it wants to achieve from the NX console and more.
The official Nintendo website posted a long message from its current President Tatsumi Kimishima. He briefly touched upon the company’s intentions for the NX and the direction for Nintendo as a whole.
They posted this about the NX console: “For our dedicated video game platform business, Nintendo is currently developing a gaming platform codenamed “NX” with a brand-new concept and our unique software-led hardware-software integrated business will continue to constitute the core business for Nintendo. For the purpose of maximizing the population that interact with Nintendo IP, we will also enter into the smart device gaming business and aim to generate revenue and profit from it as well as to create synergy with the dedicated video game platform business.”
The part about the NX console being a “brand-new concept” sounds very interesting. This is one of the reasons the original Wii was so popular as nobody else did motion gaming in your own home before. The Wii U failed to come up with a unique concept.
We should know more about the Nintendo NX very soon. The company plans to announce official details on it in 2016. It’s only a few more days until 2015 is over.
