NIS America sent an email out yesterday to media to apologise for the CEO’s recent comments in MCV magazine regarding Sony. We published the original article here.
NIS America President Takuro Yamashita would like to issue a statement regarding his comments made in the April 2018 MCV article titled, “Switching Gear,” which can be found here.
“I must extend my most heartfelt apology to SNK and Sony Interactive Entertainment. The truth is that the Nintendo Switch exclusive plan was originally decided by NIS America, and only later among discussions with influential SNK people did we decide the best option moving forward would be to have as much exposure as possible. This is why that in the end, we are bringing the PS4 version of SNK HEROINES to the market, and even supported this version at the NISA Press Event and in the press meetings in February and March.
In discussing matters with MCV, I thought that some insider information would make them interested in the overall conversation, and such lip service did not stand on the side of truth.
Once again, I apologize to SNK and Sony if it made them seem negative towards the PS4 platform in any way, and stress that the original goal of a “Nintendo Switch exclusive” version of SNK HEROINES came from NISA.”
CEO and President of NIS America, Inc.
