Nintendo-Präsident Tatsumi Kimishima hat Bloomberg ein Interview zur Switch gegeben. Hier ein TL;DR.
Thanks to our software, the 3DS hardware is still growing. [...] certainly rather than being cannibalized by the Switch, we think the 3DS can continue in its own form.
We want people to touch the device in January and experience the software for themselves.
We have no intention of just going after a certain age group. Depending on the kind of software that comes out, families and kids will be able to play too. [...] So we have no intention to lean just towards core gamers.
I can't say that we have no interest in VR because VR offers new ways of playing, but that depends on what kind of software can be played. [...] And our games are ones that are usually played for a long time.
Zu Super Mario Run (und Free to Play):
So our expectations are big. [...] more than 20 million people have already registered to receive notifications when the game is available. [...] you can download it and play a certain part of it, and then pay a fixed price and then play it over and over as many times as you want without having to pay anything extra. And that should give peace of mind that kids can play it.
Zu Nintendos Mobile-Strategie:
[...] by releasing our software on the smartphone, it positively impacts our existing hardware and software business. And that's precisely the synergy effect we were expecting.
Zu Nintendis finanzieller Zukunft (und ich wertschätze seine direkte Art hier sehr):
Our revenue has fallen for eight straight years. What we aim for is to increase the number of people who play games. We want to deliver all kinds of new surprises to our customers, and it is through their support that our revenue increases. [...] Next year is when we see the result.
