While the Nintendo Switch has lit the world on fire, it didn’t achieve that through ultimate 4K power. The relatively weak power of their little hybrid system is something that’s been quintessential Nintendo for a long time at this point, but if the winds blow in a certain way, Nintendo wouldn’t be shy about putting money into emerging technologies.
Dualshockers summarized a recent investor Q&A session, where outgoing president Tatsumi Kimishima reiterated that while Nintendo is focused on their content and their hardware for the time being, and most of their investments lay in their own content, Nintendo isn’t closing the door. Should the right technology, which is compatible with the goals of Nintendo and good for customers, appear, Nintendo could possibly invest in it.
While the Nintendo Switch has been screaming along towards its insane sales goals with about 17.79 Million Units sold, Nintendo will need to keep that momentum going to hit what they want to. With a double whammy of Super Smash Bros later this year and Pokemon possibly coming too, they just might do it.
