EA is renowned for its lack of support for the Wii U but will things be any different with the forthcoming Nintendo NX platform? Game Informer caught up with EA’s Patrick Soderlund to ask him. Soderlund says that support isn’t out of the question as long as the company sees an “addressable market” for it.
“Nintendo is such an instrumental part of our whole industry,” he shared. “They deserve to be successful, and they deserve to be a major player in the business, given their pedigree. It’s not only the machines that they’ve built, but also the IPs they’ve brought to market. There are very few companies like Nintendo. Whenever they bring something to market that we see an addressable market for, we’ll be there. Given that they haven’t announced [a new console] officially or shown it, I can’t comment specifically.”
