Nintendo’s upcoming console, the Nintendo Switch, will mark the return of NVIDIA to the gaming consoles space, and it seems like the company has very high expectations. During its recent earnings call, the company’s CEO Jen-Hsun Huang talked about the console as well as the relationship between NVIDIA and Nintendo, which seems like will last for quite some time.

According to Jen-Hsun Huang, as transcripted by Seeking Alpha, the relationship with Nintendo is going to last for a very long time, likely at least two decades, as the Japanese company tends to stick with an architecture for quite some time. NVIDIA has been working with Nintendo for over two years already, and the console will apparently amaze everyone, noting how it plays like nothing else on the market.

And so that’s a real advantage and we’re really proud of them. I guess you could also say that Nintendo contributed a fair amount to that growth. And over the next – as you know, the Nintendo architecture and the company tends to stick with an architecture for a very long time. And so we’ve worked with them now for almost two years. Several hundred engineering years have gone into the development of this incredible game console. I really believe when everybody sees it and enjoy it, they’re going be amazed by it. It’s really like nothing they’ve ever played with before. And of course, the brand, their franchise and their game content is incredible. And so I think this is a relationship that will likely last two decades and I’m super excited about it.

Jen-Hsun Huang’s enthusiasm for the Nintendo Switch is not surprising at all, but it’s definitely exciting to hear how the next Nintendo console may be going even beyond what we have seen in the reveal trailer released last month. The console will receive additional details in around two months, so it won’t take long to learn what else the Nintendo Switch can offer that it will revolutionize traditional console gaming.
