Nintendo’s Shinya Takahashi and Shigeru Miyamoto recently sat down with Fortune. During the interview Miyamoto stated that he was not involved with the designing of the Nintendo NX at all. Stating…
“I’ve pulled myself back out of some of the hardware section and I’m really focused on some of the software that I’m involved in—for example, the new Star Fox game. Of course I am observing and looking at the hardware, but I am not actively participating and making decisions.”
Shinya Takahashi, who is now the General Manager of the SPD Department, has stated that the Nintendo NX will catch the attention of players once again saying..
“For us, the next step is to think about what is going to be that element that is really going to catch the attention of a large number of players again and get them excited,” Takahashi said. “We’re constantly thinking about this idea from the perspective of the players and the needs of the players in terms of what can we can do with our ability and our technology to capture that excitement and passion.”
Of course this new console that Nintendo is working on will probably not be out for at least another year, but that won’t stop us with our estimations.
