Fez creator Phil Fish seemed to throw a whole lot of negativity towards Nintendo on Twitter yesterday. Fish wrote that the company’s adoption of a dual screen design is a “gimmick”, as is the implementation of 3D. His tweets were highlighted by his desire to see Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on the PlayStation Vita since it supports two joysticks.

Fish’s initial comments resulted in a significant amount of backlash, but since then, his comments have been clarified.

The 3DS itself isn’t a gimmick, according to Fish. Rather, he feels that “some aspects of their designs are inelegant.” Fish is a big fan of Nintendo, though, and he personally does “like the DS and 3DS just fine in many, many ways.”
