After the reveal of the Nintendo Switch, more and more companies and developers are weighing in on the newest Nintendo concept.
Ubisoft, TellTale Games, even Bethesda have weighed in. Now, one of the companies that lent technology to create the console has spoke out. Nvidia talked with VentureBeat about the concept of the Nintendo Switch, and why they think it’s special: “In the case of Switch, it was such a ground-breaking design,” Nvidia CEO Jen-Hsun Huang said. “Performance matters because games are built on great performance, but form factor and energy efficiency matter incredibly because they want to build something that’s portable and transformable. The type of gameplay they want to enable is like nothing the world has so far.” “It’s a scenario where two great engineering teams, working with their creative teams, needed to hunker down,” he said. “Several hundred engineering years went into building this new console. It’s the type of project that really inspires us, gets us excited. It’s a classic win-win.” This seems to echo the thoughts of the many Nintendo fanboys and fangirls, who think the Switch is indeed something special, and are eagerly waiting more details about it. Nintendo will reveal more on January 12 during a very special livestream event.
