This is according to the company’s communications manager Fabian Mario Döehla who said that during an interview with Rocket Beans TV. He was quoted as saying, “It will be fantastic. As developer [CD Projekt] you get access to the hardware and everybody [at CD Projekt] is looking forward. We know things.”
Of course “fantastic” is subjective but considering that the Wii U did not achieve the level of success Nintendo was hoping for, it’s nice to see developers giving the NX their seal of approval even before it has launched. The host of the interview then pointed out that the NX will probably not be as powerful as the upcoming Project Scorpio Xbox from Microsoft.
Döehla then said what Nintendo had pretty much said earlier on, which is that the NX will be focusing more on the games and gameplay, rather than the hardware specs. “I think this will never again be the main emphasis in the future [for Nintendo]. Can [the NX] be better than the new Xbox? Take a realistic point of view: is Nintendo able to build a console that has got more power than Xbox?” In any case more details about the NX are expected to be shared later this fall, so check back with us then for the details.
