Pokémon CEO Says They’ll Make NX Games, Console/Handheld Hybrid Comments



Talk on Nintendo’s next-generation system has been heating up lately, and the latest comes from The Pokémon Company CEO Tsunekazu Ishihara, speaking with The Wall Street Journal.


There’s been a lot of speculation about Nintendo’s next-generation platform, codenamed NX, possibly being a home console and handheld hybrid system for some time now, and Ishihara-san’s comment with The Wall Street Journal shares a little more on what we can expect from the device:


Pokémon Co.’s chief executive said Tuesday his company plans to create games for Nintendo Co.’s next-generation system, which people familiar with the plans say is likely to meld features of traditional consoles and hand-held devices.


“The NX is trying to change the concept of what it means to be a home console device or a hand-held device,” said Mr. Ishihara. “We will make games for the NX.”
