Nintendo NX: Bethesda Talking to Nintendo About The Upcoming System

The Elder Scrolls on a Nintendo?

With the upcoming Nintendo NX system, it sounds like Nintendo are determined to not repeat the mistakes that they made with the Wii U. One of thee mistakes appears to be third party support, of which, after a brief bright flame initially, the Wii U had none.

As of right now, Nintendo appears to be openly courting support for what it claims will be a revolutionary new system. One of the many third parties that Nintendo appear to be talking to are Bethesda, the custodians of the Elder Scrolls and Fallout franchises.

“We talk to Nintendo all the time – we’re pretty well briefed in on what they are doing,” Bethesda’s Pete Hines said. “It’s definitely something we will look at; and our philosophy is that we will put our games out on any format that supports the games as we envisage and make them. If the NX fits that from a technical standpoint, and fits the game that a developer in our stable is making, I don’t see why we would not put it out on NX. But it’s too early to say, ‘we’ll definitely be putting games out or not.’ Like with mobile, we want to have the right fit for the right formats.”

It sounds like Bethesda are not fully sold on what Nintendo are peddling- which makes sense if what Nintendo are selling is indeed as radical as rumors seem to be indicating. Let’s hope the NX is every bit as much of a success as Nintendo want it to be, and that Nintendo can manage to get back into the console market with a competitive system.
