Shigeru Miyamoto, a key executive in Nintendo, is “not actively participating” in the development of the new upcoming Nintendo NX console. Miyamoto is instead focusing his sights on software development. “I’ve pulled myself back out of some of the hardware section and I’m really focused on some of the software that I’m involved in—for example, the new Starfox game,” Miyamoto explained in an interview with Fortune.

“Of course I am observing and looking at the hardware, but I am not actively participating and making decisions.” Miyamoto is known to be pivotal in the creation of Nintendo’s previous consoles like the Wii, Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

Nintendo’s general manager Shinya Takahasi stated that, “For us, the next step is to think about what is going to be that element that is really going to catch the attention of a large number of players again and get them excited, We’re constantly thinking about this idea from the perspective of the players and the needs of the players in terms of what can we can do with our ability and our technology to capture that excitement and passion.”
