Nintendo’s NX platform is building a steady line-up of supporters before its release and Take Two Interactive – responsible for Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead Redemption, XCOM and much more – is one of them.

CEO Strauss Zelnick told Games Industry International that, “We’re believers. We never want to count Nintendo out. They do it over and over and over again. So we feel pretty enthusiastic really.”

As for the somewhat disappointing success of the Wii U compared to the Wii, Zelnick noted, “It’s not a slump, it’s intentional. They come to market, they do really well, and then they sort of exit the market for a period of time.

“They’ve been doing it for like 150 years…They’re really thoughtful, they come to market with something they really think is going to work, more often than not it really works, it blows up, and then eventually they let it decline and they move on to the next thing. They don’t mind having time in between.”

Thus far, Nintendo hasn’t revealed too much information about what the NX actually is. We do know that The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild will be one of its launch titles in March 2017 so stay tuned for more in the coming months.
