NX is "neither a successor to the Wii U nor to the 3DS."
"We swear, it's not a replacement! Honest! Please buy our previous-gen... I mean, a Wii U!"
"It's a new way of playing games, which I think will have a larger impact than the Wii U,"
I certainly hope so for Nintendo's sake.
Also in the interview, Kimishima talked about why the NX is launching next spring instead of coming out in time for the busy holiday shopping season this year. He reiterated that it is important to have a strong launch lineup of games, and it can take time to build that out.
Thank Rei. It seems they've actually learned something.
