In a recent interview with Time, Miyamato discussed a wide range of topics covering everything from the Switch to Virtual Reality.
One question Miyamoto was asked was if there was anything in particular that he would like to accomplish, in or out of gaming, over the next ten years. He responded that now Nintendo have gotten themselves into the mobile industry, and have also brought in a new concept with the Switch, it opens up new doors to all kinds of possibilities. He added that he still thinks there is a lot to explore, and he wants to lay down the standards for those possibilities over the next ten years.
As a company, we’ve carefully gotten ourselves involved in the mobile industry, and that’s something that I was personally involved in. Then with the Nintendo Switch, the idea of having a console that’s also a portable device, I think that opens up new doors to all kinds of possibilities. In the industry of fun, I think there’s still a lot we can still explore. I think what I want to accomplish is kind of laying down the standards for what those possibilities are going to be over the next 10 years.
Now that Nintendo is bringing the Switch to the table, allowing gamers to play on their home television, or take the Switch’s handheld tablet on the go, it will be interesting to see what innovative ideas the company follows up with in the future.
