With Nintendo E3’s showing hugely based on multiplayer games, some Nintendo fans may be worried that Nintendo is hopping on to the “Multiplayer is the way to go” bandwagon.
However, speaking to IGN, Nintendo of America President clarifies that although the Switch is made with multiplayer in mind, there will always have wonderful single-player games out for the players.
“A core proposition with Nintendo Switch is the ability to be playing a game and having an experience, seeing someone looking over at what you’re doing, and the ability to just pop out a controller, hand it to someone, and to jump into a multiplayer experience really is a key part of the proposition,” Fils-Aime said. “[Multiplayer experiences are] not exclusive, so we will still have these wonderful single-player experiences like Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.”
“The ability to have a multiplayer experience was a key part of the thinking for the Nintendo Switch.”
With largely single player games such as Pokemon, and Metroid 4 on the way, gamers who game alone can rest a little easier on Nintendo platforms.
