Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa says their next console will use the same Nintendo Account (UPDATE)
Shuntaro Furukawa wants a smooth transition
Nintendo has just published a transcript of the Q&A portion of their latest shareholders meeting, and an interesting tidbit about Nintendo’s next-gen console was shared. As noticed by Twitter user Genki, it looks like Nintendo still plans on using the same Nintendo Account system on their next platform.
Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa thinks that keeping their current account system will allow for a smooth transition to next-gen, whenever that transition may be. We don’t know when we’ll see the next Nintendo platform, but we do know it’s on Nintendo’s mind.
UPDATE: You can now see the official question and answer in English, as Nintendo has released their translation of the Shareholders Q&A.
