Pokémon President talks using Nintendo Switch's features with new Pokémon game
Use ALL THE FEATURES!
The President of the Pokemon Company, Tsunekazu Ishihara, has openly spoken out against the Nintendo Switch and actively noted that it has potential, but it shouldn't be overestimated. Now Ishihara is commenting on how the new Pokemon game will be taking advantage of the Nintendo Switch.
It looks like the team is a bit overwhelmed with all the new features and possibilities that the Nintendo Switch brings to the table, but the development team is looking to utilize as much of the Switch's features as possible.
"With the Switch, we see it as a chance to create Pokémon that goes deeper and with a higher level of expression. As a result, that makes it an extremely important platform.
"Right now we’re using 7 to 8 inch screens, but on a high-definition TV you can express a whole different world with graphics and sound.
"Until now, games were made as one for one person, but now you can go home and play with everyone — so how do we tackle these themes, and how do we make sure it’s not complicated?”
I can’t say that we’ll release accessories, but I’d like to think of that possibility.
"Unlike smartphones, the Switch is not a game device that assumes that there’s constant network connectivity. So from our perspective, it’s really not that different from DS or 3DS in terms of connectivity."
This will be the first time a traditional Pokemon game to hit TV screens, so hopefully they use the Nintendo Switch's features!
