Image & Form loves Switch, always looking at bringing more games to the platform

Coming from a Miketendo64 interview with Image & Form...

“We are always looking at the possibilities to bring more games to Nintendo Switch. We love the Switch, it’s a great success and a great gaming platform. However, we’re constantly balancing our resources, there’s really no extra fat on the Image & Form body. That means we’re always dealing with capacity issues.”

I mean, I'm a HUGE fan of Image & Form. Anything/everything the company wants to bring to Switch, I'll be there day one. Whether it's ports of other SteamWorld games or something new altogether, I'm down!

Nintendo is constantly looking to disrupt and innovate, says Virtual Boy failure may have paved the way for 3DS

Coming from a Mashable interview with Reggie Fils-Aime...

"We're constantly looking to disrupt the industry. We're constantly asking ourselves what can we do that's differentiated, that the consumer wants but doesn't know they want. One thing that I love about our company is we always put innovation first. We are always looking to take that risk."

Reggie also talked a bit about how sometimes that risk doesn't pay off initially, but can be viewed as a catalyst down the road.

"More often than not they work, sometimes they don't. Without that (the Virtual Boy), we wouldn't have learned about that particular space, about what you can do with VR and then AR, and who knows? AR may not have ever been incorporated into the Nintendo 3DS if we hadn't had that failed experiment 20 years prior."

Nice to see Nintendo recognizing the Virtual Boy more and more. Now wouldn't it be nice if Nintendo would put some of those VB games on the 3DS VC? WOULDN'T IT, NINTENDO?!?!?!
