A Japanese interview with Nintendo’s Shinya Takahashi was recently translated by Nintendo Everything. It turns out that the interview contained some new information on future plans that the company is planning for the Nintendo Switch. According to Takahashi, Nintendo is “preparing new IP one after another”. These games will take advantage of the Joy-Con. Takahashi also revealed that “out-of-the-box titles” are something that the company is pursuing, although he said that he couldn’t discuss any further details. An example of these kind of titles was mentioned, and it was Brain Age, an IP that was nothing like we had seen from Nintendo before when it debuted. There won’t be another Brain Age game for now, but revolutionary games seem to be something Nintendo wishes to do for the console going forward. The importance of indie games was also stressed, suggesting that indie games will continue to be something Nintendo will support.

    • Arms take advantage of the joy-cons, but they included the option to use normal controls. Nintendo learned their lesson from Zero’s reception and it looked like they are trying to distance the Switch from the Wii brand to some extent.

  1. this is etremely promising yet fills me with anxiety, Please either design these games with the regular player in mind, or just develop some practical IPs. I like the joycons but focus on the games themselves, the last thing I want is a another game $50-$60 like 1 2 switch. it may have not been a bad game, but they need to move on from this whole party game craze where they expect everyone to have and expendable about of friends available at any moment where no one is too busy. this is the perfect time for nintendo to get their shit together and make a game worth putting hours into and to stop making cheap novelty games that you can only play with other people. I bought the switch for me, not to share it 24/7, Im not saying make another zelda or mario odyssey-esque game but it would be great to have something that felt more like a game and not a series of minigames.

    if they insist on involving the joycons, they really need to just focus on HD rumble or a MODEST use of gyro or compatible sideways control for multiplayer. also, I really hope the Pro controller is involved in many of the future games, i didnt pay $70 just to use this on a couple games.

    Honestly, I have some apprehension for this. The last big “out of the box” Nintendo game we got was Star Fox Zero. I refuse to give that shit a second thought.
