News publication Bloomberg recently had the opportunity to sit down and discuss the Nintendo Switch with Nintendo president, Tatsumi Kimishima. One of the questions directed at the president of the company was whether or not the Nintendo Switch will have virtual reality capabilities and whether or not it is something they’re planning to introduce in the future. Kimishima says that it could be possible in the future but doesn’t sound sold on the overall concept at present. Here’s what he had to say.
Will Switch have VR capabilities? Are you developing VR that will connect to Switch?
If you asked as if this might be possible in the future, certainly we can’t say no. In terms of how it can be used for gaming, it’s something we must consider. It depends on the system specifications. I can’t say that we have no interest in VR because VR offers new ways of playing, but that depends on what kind of software can be played. But what kind of software works, that’s only something you only know once you actually experience it. And our games are ones that are usually played for a long time.
