During a recent shareholders meeting, Nintendo CEO Shuntaro Furukawa shared his thoughts on the NES/SNES Classic series of mini consoles. While there hasn’t been a new mini console in quite some time, Nintendo is still considering distributing classic games through more mini consoles. Here’s what he had to say, courtesy of VGC:
“We always want our products to be played by people of all ages, from children to adults. In fact, after being in the video game business for many years, we believe that there is now a very wide range of generations who have adopted Nintendo consoles.
We will continue to examine the possibility of offering classic content, such as with the NES and Super NES Classic Mini series, as well as our online services, as a way of communicating the appeal of our products to different generations.”
Fans are clamoring for a Game Boy Classic and N64 Classic so maybe one day, a new mini console could arrive. In the meantime, stay tuned at Final Weapon for the latest Japanese gaming news and updates!
