Currently Chief Creative Officer at SEGA, Toshihiro Nagoshi is the videogaming author who has shaped the Yakuza series, as well as Super Monkey Ball.
To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the birth of the Japanese gaming giant, the veteran of industry was the protagonist of an interview organized by SEGA Europe. During the event, which you can view directly in the opening of this news, Nagoshi shared a rather peculiar judgment on the latest home flagship hardware of Nintendo. In discussing the decision to propose Super Monkey Ball as the first SEGA title for a console of the Kyoto House, Nagoshi said that it was considered suitable for the target of the gaming giant.
“Today – the author continued – I believe that the Nintendo platform is a console played by an audience with a wide age range, but in fact, I think it is a hardware for children and adolescents.” A rather clear opinion on what is the nature of Nintendo Switch, whose audience is composed of fans belonging to every age group and that offers in its catalogue extremely diversified experiences. Productions not suitable for a young audience have recently reached the console, with Nintendo Switch versions of Control and Hitman 3, while Bayonetta 3 remains among the most anticipated titles on hardware.
