Nintendo Won’t Develop NX Consoles On Cost Of 3DS and Wii U Owners, Says Company President
Nintendo’s increased focus on NX consoles doesn’t imply the company’s plans to abandon 3DS and Wii U owners either, the company has explained. It will release all the new game titles and software updates for both Wii U consoles and 3DS.
“Immediately cutting off software for previous hardware upon the release of a new machine is inefficient. We will continue making 3DS and Wii U software while preparing for the NX,” said Satoru Iwata, president of Nintendo, while speaking to investors. “We are prioritizing satisfying customers who purchased the Wii U.”
Nintendo has reportedly no plans to share details about its NX project until 2016.The company was supposed to reveal some of its plans about NX hardware during E3, but it didn’t say a word on the matter.
The company president has recently shared reason behind keeping such a secret. “We can’t talk about the NX,” Iwata said. “If we do, competitors may take our ideas and customers won’t be surprised.”
According to online news sources, Japanese gaming company is working on a “new concept” to develop NX consoles. However these consoles, which are likely to bring more advanced capabilities than the existing models, are less likely to become an outright replacement for the Wii U.
