Nintendo, you guys seem to be missing the point…
The recurring theme in a lot of the conversations that we at GamingBolt have had with game creators and developers about Nintendo’s upcoming console, the enigmatic Nintendo NX, has been that they don’t know a damn thing about it, any more than we do. Nintendo may ostensibly be hoping for the NX to be the console that makes them competitive in the console space again, but they’re definitely not sharing exactly what the NX is with developers, any more than they are with us.
For instance, we talked to Kai Tuovinen from Frozenbyte, the developers of Trine 3, about the Nintendo NX, and what their stance on the machine was. What they told us wasn’t too different from what we have heard from other developers about the new console- they don’t exactly know much about it.
“We’re always looking at new platforms and the NX has been quite the mystery. We look forward to more information about it,” Tuovinen said.
Nintendo, look, I don’t know if you really hope to have much third party support on the NX- but if you do, you’re really not going about it the right way.
