Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has told investors that third party publishers seem significantly keener on bringing software to the Nintendo 3DS compared to the original Nintendo DS when it launched.
“I often travel abroad, so I have many opportunities to ask people in our subsidiaries about what our overseas software publishers think about Nintendo 3DS, and I know they have much stronger interest in it than when Nintendo DS was about to be launched.”
“To say the least, our overseas publishers are not taking a passive approach to Nintendo 3DS at all. In fact, it is safe for you to think that they have been fairly proactive in thinking about this new hardware from the start.”
