We heard last week that Nintendo had discussed the NX with various third party developer at E3 and had received positive feedback regarding the system. Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has basically reconfirmed this and that they they have received “joint initiatives” from third party developers during E3. Hopefully the NX platform is interesting, or powerful enough, to continue to gain interest from the many third party developers out there.
“On the other hand, Nintendo is collaborating with various software publishers. At E3, which was held in the U.S. and is the largest trade show in the video game industry, we received many proposals for joint initiatives. In addition, Japanese software publishers have close relationships with our licensing department on a regular basis. As for collaborations with software publishers or their games, please consider that there are various ongoing projects below the surface.”
