Nintendo is exploring ways to use AR

January 11, 2020 / JAMIE FELTHAM

We might see new Nintendo AR experiences in the near future, perhaps either on the company’s Switch handheld (maybe something like its VR Labo kit) or on mobile. Speaking in a recent interview with Nikkei (as reported by TweakTown), Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa said that AR is “one of the many aspects we are interested in.” “Our hardware development teams evaluate all kinds of new technologies available thus far and consult with our software developers. If they determine that a technology can be used with a game, then they will utilize it. We will not be changing this fundamental approach moving forward,” Furukawa said. He later added: “As for AR, it is definitely one of the many aspects we are interested in. We are currently researching what interesting ways we can utilize it.”
