During Nintendo’s financial results briefing last week, a question was posed to the company in which they were asked what they thought about the metaverse and NFTs. Nintendo acknowledges that the concept of the metaverse has piqued their interest, but it seems that they will be staying away from it for now.
“As a company that provides entertainment, our main emphasis is on ways to deliver fresh surprises and fun to our consumers. We might consider something if we can find a way to convey a ‘Nintendo approach’ to the metaverse that many people can readily understand, but we do not think that is the situation at the present time.”
The company also rather pointedly did not bother to answer the question about the NFTs, suggesting that they have no interest in it at all. This might be good news for gamers who might be sick of developers and publishers who are rushing to adopt the tech and integrate it into their games.
