Last month, Reggie Fils-Aime stated for Forbes that Nintendo Switch Online would allow members to play all the Nintendo’s classic content. However, he changed his initial statement by saying that Nintendo will focus on holidays, leaving behind classic content.
“In terms of the legacy content, we’ve said that our focus right now is for NES content. And that’s what we’ll continue to push on,” said Fils-Aime in November.
“Right now, as we go into our second holiday, my focus is making sure the current grey and neon Switch continue to have momentum in the marketplace. You saw systems, whether it’s our own or competitive home console systems, utilize that tactic a bit later in the life cycle. So right now, the current execution of Nintendo Switch with the Joy-Con and all of the capabilities, that’s our focus right now,” said Reggie Fils-Aime in a recent interview with Forbes.
Nintendo Switch Won’t Get A Revision Anytime Soon
“We’re feeling confident in our momentum and it’s not just a stellar launch of Pokémon, it’s not just what appears to be a stellar launch for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. That Black Friday through Cyber Monday time frame was critically important to us, the remaining shopping days now through Christmas are critically important to us,” stated Fils-Aime.
“More days right after Christmas as consumers receive gift cards or take unwanted gifts and monetize into things like Nintendo Switch are important to us. So, this is going to be an ongoing effort to make sure that we drive our business forward through the balance of this holiday season but also the first calendar quarter as well,” added Reggie Fils-Aime.
In short, according to Fils-Aime statements, Nintendo Switch won’t get a revision anytime soon, as Nintendo is focusing on the current-gen console and classic content, as well.
