During today’s Nintendo Management Briefing Session, president Shuntaro Furukawa reiterated that Switch is currently in the middle of its life-cycle. Extending that life-cycle is an important goal for the company, which may now be possible thanks to focusing on a single hardware platform. Aside from putting all of its efforts into Switch without another system to think about, Nintendo can come up with unique proposals as well.
Furukawa also commented on R&D investment. In the past, Nintendo used to look at conventional technology that enabled a lower price and appeal to users. However, it is now exploring cutting-edge technology. Nintendo needs to balance factors such as how intuitive it is for users, battery life, and what is the most comfortable for users.
