Question Block

As the NX's presence becomes more prevalent in the minds of many, it's understandable that some fans are both curious and concerned about Nintendo's next move. Shigeru Miyamoto has suggested that the Wii U's downfall was down to the console being outshone by the growing tablet industry, and that is a lesson to be learned from, though some would suggest the lack of third party titles has also played a role in decreasing the Wii U's success.

Luckily for Nintendo fans, the business magazine Fortune states that the NX was pitched to third parties during E3, and gauged many of the "insider" reactions as "positive". Fortune also spoke to Shigeru Miyamoto and Nintendo's Software Planning and Development's general manager, Shinya Takahashi; Miyamoto stated he is a step back from the NX in order to concentrate on gaming projects.

I've pulled myself back out of some of the hardware section and I'm really focused on some of the software that I'm involved in — for example, the new Star Fox game. Of course I am observing and looking at the hardware, but I am not actively participating and making decisions.

Nintendo is keen on taking on feedback for the new system, too, as Takahashi-san explained.

For us, the next step is to think about what is going to be that element that is really going to catch the attention of a large number of players again and get them excited.

We're constantly thinking about this idea from the perspective of the players and the needs of the players in terms of what can we can do with our ability and our technology to capture that excitement and passion.

Nintendo has stated it will be revealing more information on its new console, codenamed NX, during 2016.
