Nintendo Interested in Virtual Reality Dylan Duarte February 2, 2016 News Do you remember the Nintendo Virtual Boy? Of course you do. Do you remember it fondly? Probably not. Well Nintendo is thinking about trying again, for better or for worse. VR tech has come a long way since that little tabletop, red-and-black gaming device, so hopefully it’s for the better. There are no concrete plans or anything like that, but Nintendo is supposedly looking back into VR after company president Tatsumi Kimishima called it “interesting technology” during a recent earnings call. There was no way of knowing what this will lead to, if anything at all. With the Wii U underperforming, it makes sense that Nintendo is looking at other avenues to explore, and they’ve never been afraid to innovate. Though, one could argue that virtual reality is no longer innovative what with so many companies dipping their toes in. That being said, if Nintendo does go the VR route, I wouldn’t be surprised if they utilized the technology in a much different way than everyone else. Share This With The World!
