Nintendo is always happy to test new hardware and technology, and the team’s latest interest is Augmented Reality, reports Nikkei (via TweakTown). It is the tech that helped the team bring Pokemon Go to life and make millions. The company will probably use this technology for its future games.
In an interview with Japanese magazine Nikkei, Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa said that Nintendo is always looking for the next big thing, and it’s really curious about AR.
“We are not turning our backs on new technologies. We are constantly researching and developing. Our hardware development teams evaluate all kinds of new technologies available thus far and consult with our software developers,” Furukawa stated. “As for AR, it is definitely one of the many aspects we are interested in. We are currently researching what interesting ways we can utilize it.”
It will still probably be a secondary function, something for fun and not a thing to define the whole system. What do you think about the story?
