In a new interview with The Verge, the president of Nintendo of America, Doug Bowser, commented on how the company has dealt with the scourge of Joy-With Drift, the future of the Nintendo 3DS, and more.
Here is what is said on the problem of Joy-With the Drift of the Switch: “our goal is always to create quality products, and products that provide the players an exceptional experience,” says Bowser. “We are constantly looking for ways to improve our products as we go forward, we want the consumers to have a great experience. And if in any case you are not having that experience, we encourage them to contact our customer support and we will do our best to help them. This was the way in which we managed our customers over the last few months, since problems have arisen such as this and we believe consumers are returning to the great experiences of the game.”
To the question if we’ll see another console retro NES and SNES Classic, Yoshi says that is not their current goal. The chairman said that the attention of Nintendo will be given to Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite. In addition, states that players in search of gaming experiences for console retro can be found on the service Nintendo Switch Online.
On the future of the 3DS: “we continue to consider the family, the 3DS, both hardware and games, as well as a strong access point for some consumers,” said Bowser. “And we are seeing it. Until the consumer demand is present, we will continue to provide hardware and software on this front”. The question of whether the 3DS is a platform that is dead, Bowser said: “I think that time will tell. We will continue to support the family 3DS during the holidays, and up to 2020.”
