Nintendo NX Will Help Industry To Grow, Take A Lot Of Casual Players Back, Says Ubisoft CEO
The next Nintendo console, currently going by the codename of Nintendo NX, has yet to be revealed to the public, but several development teams and publishers obviously know about some of its features. Earlier today, Ubisoft CEO shared his feelings on the next Nintendo console and how it can impact the industry in the near future.
During Ubisoft’s financial conference call for the first quarter of fiscal year 2016/2017, Ubisoft CEO Yves Guillemot talked about the Nintendo NX, stating that what they have seen so far of the console is really great. Guillemot also notes how having this machine coming is going to help the industry growing as well as take a lot of casual players back in the industry. This final statement is definitely interesting, as it seems to suggest that the console will have some sort of feature that will attract casual players, like the Wii console did a few years back.
Very few titles have been confirmed so far for the Nintendo NX, such as the new entry of the Just Dance series and The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. What is definitely not coming, at least close to the console’s launch, is Final Fantasy XV. Last week, the game’s director Hajime Tabata revealed that a Nintendo NX release of the console is not under consideration for now, hinting that things may change in the future. Like Yves Guillemot, Hajime Tabata also expressed his feelings on the Nintendo NX, stating that he has high expectations for both the console and Breath of the Wild.
The Nintendo NX has yet to be revealed in full, but it should be released during March 2017 in all regions. We will let you know more about the console as soon as possible, so stay tuned for all the latest news.
