We know very little about Nintendo’s next product which is simply code named, NX. Time recently had the chance to speak to Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima about the device which Kimishima describes as different and a brand new experience. He said that the platform won’t simply be a follow up to both the Wii and Wii U. Sounds interesting!
The NX is “a next step in our dedicated device strategy, the core and primary focus of our business.”
“As far as NX goes, I’ve said it’s different and obviously a new experience,” he tells me. “If you look back to the beginning of our conversation today, we talked about the transition from Wii hardware to the Wii U hardware and how difficult it is to explain to the consumer base what is different and new about the new hardware. It’s difficult to convince them to switch from their current platform to the next platform.”
“That being said, I can assure you we’re not building the next version of Wii or Wii U. It’s something unique and different. It’s something where we have to move away from those platforms in order to make it something that will appeal to our consumer base.”
