Just yesterday, Yves Guillemot – CEO of Ubisoft – talked about what he thinks of the NX and seemingly had nothing but high praise for the upcoming device. The good news comes as a hopeful indicator of what's to come, as Nintendo's next console has lots riding on it. At this point in time, it's safe to say that the Wii U was far less than successful, despite the presence of many quality titles in its library. Guillemot had something to say on this, too, adding that Nintendo has learned from its past mistakes.
IGN got a chance to talk with him after yesterday's presentation and asked him whether or not he sees NX as a step back towards the Wii's all-inclusive approach. Here's what he had to say:
It's difficult to answer that [before NX is revealed]. What we see is that Nintendo has learned from the Wii U. All publishers learn from what they do, and then come with something new and more attractive, which I think is the case here.
Those are certainly encouraging words, and one can only hope that they actually turn out to be true. Considering that the NX is only half a year away from being on shelves, perhaps Nintendo will opt to finally reveal the thing sometime in the near future. Really, Nintendo, any day now.
