Nintendo’s hybrid console is still a worldwide success. Its life cycle seems to be able to last for a while, but that doesn’t stop the manufacturer from thinking about the future. In a series of questions and answers, the Japanese giant talks about his prospects for his future gaming system.
During a series of questions answers for investors, Shuntaro Furukawa answered certain questions concerning the manufacturer’s prospects for his game system. The president of Nintendo initially set out to evoke the advantages of their current console, which should still have happy years ahead of her. The giant hopes first “maximize its benefits“while extending its life cycle.
Our current generation gaming system, the Nintendo Switch, has entered its fourth post-launch year, but its growth is still on the rise. We believe there are two reasons for this. The first is the existence of two hardware configurations with different characteristics, the Nintendo Switch and the Nintendo Switch Lite. The second reason is that Nintendo’s development resources are focused on developing content for one platform, the Nintendo Switch. We want to extend the life of the Nintendo Switch while maximizing these benefits.
Regarding the future after the Switch, Ko Shiota, the head of Nintendo’s hardware department, still provides some additional details. The manufacturer seems to want to exploit all the advantages of the hybrid machine, particularly in terms of portability, to design, in the future, a more powerful model.
In addition to performance aspects (more advanced technical specifications), Nintendo’s video game platforms are developed with an emphasis on creating a comfortable environment for consumers who want to play fun video games. Since consumers can play Nintendo Switch on a TV or directly from their console, the ability to play in multiple life situations has increased significantly compared to previous consoles.
Thanks to the Nintendo Switch, we have made many discoveries about the place that a video game platform occupies in the daily life of a consumer. On social networks, we see scenes of children and their families gathered around a game console, which renews the value that our video game platform holds. We will use these experiences when we carefully consider the form our future consoles will take.
