28.6.2021 | Nintendo President gave remarks about Nintendo Switch Pro
Nintendo’s America president Doug Bowser has responded to reports of Nintendo Switch with an upgraded hardware by sharing the company’s thoughts about taking that step.
During an interview with The Washington Post, Bowser was asked about this new Nintendo Switch which is said to have a larger screen and the ability to output 4K ultra-high definition graphics when docked.
“We are always looking at technology and how technology can enhance gameplay experiences. It’s not technology for technology’s sake,” Bowser tells The Washington Post. “It’s how specifically can technology enhance a gameplay experience. And then where do you apply that technology? Do you want to apply it on current existing hardware or platforms, or do you want to wait for the next platform? And then what’s the right gameplay experience with that? There’s a host of factors that goes into it, and it’s something we’re always looking at.”
Bowser also highlighted how Nintendo is focusing on much more than just the Switch, as seen with its partnership with Universal Studios to build theme parks around the world, its expansion into the mobile games market, and its choice to "selectively" license its IP to other brands like LEGO.
