Nintendo Talked About The Core Concepts Of The Switch

The Verge recently spoke with Nintendo’s Shinya Takahashi and Yoshiaki Koizumi about the Nintendo Switch. The pair didn’t say much, but they did offer a few remarks about the console’s core concepts.

Yoshiaki Koizumi spoke first, saying that “when we were working on the early development of the Nintendo Switch, one concept that was very important to us was how do we get people together to have a good time. Whether you’re playing poker or blackjack, you’re going to be making eye contact with other players. We like to think of this as being integral — core to Nintendo’s DNA. The same DNA is even flowing through the Switch.”

Shinya Takahashi was the second to speak up, explaining that “certainly Nintendo has our long-time fans who are looking forward to new installments in our IP like Zelda, Mario,. and of course we’ll continue to make new games for those fans. Nintendo is an entertainment company first and foremost.

The ability to pick it up and hand it to someone else was a very important part of the hardware. We began to look at how can we leverage these technologies to create new experiences that will appeal to that wider range of ages and a wider range of interests than even the Wii audience had. One of the things we’ve continued to consider for a long time is how we can give an audience that played Wii another opportunity to come into contact with Nintendo software. Adding this level of freedom to a game console means more people will see it in use. They’ll have more opportunities to have contact with games in general.”
