The Ubisoft CEO praised the NX in a sit-down with IGN. Yves Guillemot stated that,

“It’s a machine that will be easy to use for all gamers. They have built in something that will give us chance to really have a different experience from what exists today. That’s what I like – that they come with something new that is adapted to what we actually want now.”

He says that it will stand out from the consoles of Microsoft and Sony, which is a staple of Nintendo’s. One of the great thing about the company is they continue to innovate and go their own way, and that is what makes Nintendo Nintendo. We don’t need another Xbox or another PlayStation, we need something special once again from Nintendo. And with the NX, it sounds like we’ll get it.  That, and Zelda at launch of course.

When Guillemot was asked whether the NX was a step back towards the inclusiveness of the Wii, he answered it very intelligently.

“It’s difficult to answer that [before NX is revealed]. What we see is that Nintendo has learned from the Wii U. All publishers learn from what they do, and then come with something new and more attractive, which I think is the case here.”

Nintendo has always had a good relationship with Ubisoft, so it’s no surprise their CEO is singing them praises. Let’s just hope that these praises are well-deserved, which I’m sure they are. Nintendo has learned from the failings of the Wii U, although it was a great machine, and are not going for another Wii. The NX will carve out its own legacy.
