Rumours come and rumours go about Nintendo’s VR ambitions. Speaking with Diamond, Nintendo President, Tatsumi Kimishima, voiced his opinion on VR.
Kimishima said that he is interested in VR’s technology but has yet to find anything interesting to be done with it, and that Nintendo will only use it when they have found something interesting to do with it.
“I understand that VR is interesting as a technology and I am very interested in it … I will use it if I can make interesting things with it … we have not done anything interesting yet.”
VR by itself is inherently interesting due to its novelty. However, Kimishima does have a point in that once the novelty wears off, what is going to keep the VR interest pumping?
