Yet another interview with Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime was posted today. This time, Waypoint published its own conversation with the executive.

We’ve shared some of the comments from Reggie below. Waypoint has the full interview here.

USgamer was able to send out some questions to Ever Oasis director Koichi Ishii. Among the topics talked about include choosing 3DS over Switch, inspirations taken from working on the Mana series, and the game’s lack of multiplayer.

GameSpot has joined other outlets with its own interview with Monolith Soft co-founder and president Tetsuya Takahashi. The discussion features talk about Xenoblade Chronicles 2, including the game’s theme and how it’s a culmination of all Takahashi has done and wanted to do in the past with previous titles. Some general industry topics are tackled here as well, including interest in working on smaller projects in the future if there’s an opportunity.

Continue on below for some notable excerpts from the interview. Head on over to GameSpot for the full discussion.

Konami has ruled out Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 for Switch. However, the company seems open to bringing the series over in the future.

Global product and brand manager Adam Bhatti told Eurogamer:

“One thing that I will say about the Switch is, we’re getting asked that quite a lot. The fact is, we’ve announced all the platforms that PES 2018 is coming to. But as I’ve been saying to a lot of people, we have a great relationship with Nintendo – we’ve obviously brought out Bomberman which has done fantastic for the Switch. So as a company it’s a platform that we’re looking at, for sure. So for PES it’s just – we never want to say no, we never want to close the door. Let’s see how it goes. Personally speaking, I love the machine. We think it’s definitely performed amazingly well. And we really hope that it continues to do very well.”

Pro Evolution Soccer 2018’s assistant producer Kei Masuda also said: “We always like to hear what the fans think as well, depending on the amount of reactions we get then we definitely would like to look into it.”

If you’re looking for a soccer fix on Switch this year, EA has you covered. FIFA 18 will be releasing on September 29.

Nintendo Life published a new interview with Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino. Hino had much to say about Layton’s Mystery Journey, including how he wants to make “Mystery Journey” a new series, supporting Switch in the future, and a possible new movie.

We’ve rounded up some of the more interesting comments from Hino below. You can read the full interview here.

Final Fantasy XIV possibly coming to Switch is something that producer Naoki Yoshida has commented on fairly regularly. We’ve heard him weigh in on things as early as August 2015, back when Nintendo’s console was known as NX.

Kotaku once again asked Yoshida about Final Fantasy XIV on Switch in a recent interview. He unsurprisingly said that he’s still very much open the idea. However, he also stressed the importance of having cross-play.

Yoshida’s latest comments are as follows:

A new interview with Nintendo senior director of corporate communications Charlie Scibetta is up from Ars Technica. The two chatted about the Switch stock situation, the NES Classic Edition, and fan games.

Nintendo UK has a new interview up with Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle developer Davide Soliani. Soliani spoke about what it was like originally pitching the idea to Nintendo, the emotional reveal at E3 last week, and more. Read on below for his various comments.

The fact that Rocket League is in the works for Switch is big news. But last week, it was also announced that cross-play will be supported. When Rocket League launches on Switch, players will be able to battle against those on other systems like Xbox One and PC.

Nintendo of America corporate communications director Charlie Scibetta spoke about the decision to introduce cross-play on Switch as part of an interview with GamesBeat. It’s all a part of “trying to be more flexible as a company,” he explained.

Here’s the relevant portion of the interview:

The Verge published some choice quotes from some of the developers at Nintendo, including Shinya Takahashi, general manager of Nintendo’s software division, Nintendo EPD. Takahashi started off by commenting on when it makes sense to introduce a new IP.

He said:

“It’s not just about new characters. It’s also about thinking about how people will accept new systems and gameplay. Sometimes new intellectual property is the best way to introduce that.”

“Whenever we see a new, really fun prototype, there’s always going to be a moment where we think: ‘How do we give the most people the opportunity to play this? Is it something that needs to be in a Mario game, or is this something that feels like it should go in a new direction?’ And that’s a debate that happens every single time.”
