According to Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima, Switch and 3DS can co-exist. The two devices have a lot of differences in terms of form factor, weight, price, and games. Tatsumi Kimishima believes that 3DS can be appealing to parents in the sense of a first gaming system for their children because of the aforementioned factors.

He said that being a portable system there is a different demand and market for Nintendo 3DS and as for the next handheld, Nintendo is still looking into it.

Nintendo’s next console is just a month away from its launch and Nintendo has a lot of plans for it and supporting VR is one of them. According to Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima, the company is currently looking into the VR support for Nintendo Switch.

He added that “if we are able to resolve the issues with playing [VR] comfortably for long hours, we will support it in one form or another”.

Nintendo Switch will launch on March 3, 2017, and will be priced at $299.99 in the US and Legend Of Zelda Breath Of The Wild will be one of te many launch titles for the console.
