Scott Moffitt, the Executive VP of Sales at Nintendo of America, has told The Examiner that the company always listens to the fanbase. Whether that is through social media, forums, blogs or petitions, they are apparently paying attention. Moffitt says that they were extremely curious to see what people thought of their brand new IP, Splatoon. Here’s what he had to say.
“I would never say we’re blind to the outside world, but we listen to our game fans a lot,” We’re always curious to [see] their reaction to new games like Splatoon,”
“We don’t use them as our sole inspiration but we certainly like to hear what they are saying, enjoying and appreciating about a game, in addition to what they would like in future iterations of that game. We take a broad look and always pay attention to what is going on beyond our walls with trends, but it starts with listening really carefully to our gamers.”
