Phil Spencer is the head of the Xbox division and scouting out the competition is part of his job description. He gave his opinion on the Nintendo Switch on Twitter.
A fan was the one that asked him of his opinion about the games on the Nintendo Switch and the console itself. It appears the man is a fan of the famous franchises from Nintendo.
He said: “Mario looked new/fresh. Zelda should be great. Hybrid console, will be fun to see what new game ideas come from that.”
Even though the launch titles for the Switch look sparse at the moment, there are well over 80 games currently in development for the system. This includes a healthy mix of first party and third party developers.
Spencer is right in telling us that the Hybrid nature of the console should give us some unique game ideas. It’s the first time a major console is both a home and portable device. This should benefit a franchise like Pokemon.
