The internal conversations we have is that on one hand, the development teams would love to showcase their content to a wider base, and certainly in short order the install base on Nintendo Switch will be larger than the install base we ended with Wii U.

Nintendo of America president and COO Reggie Fils-Aime broke that silence somewhat in an interview with IGN in which he spoke about the present and future of Virtual Console. He called it "form faction innovation" and predicted it would continue to drive growth for the 3DS platform. What we're trying to do is deliver positive steps on all of these areas but in a way that is prioritized and makes sense for us.

What we are doing, as quickly as we can, is scaling up the production to make more available into the marketplace, to get to the point where every consumer who wants a Nintendo Switch can find a Nintendo Switch.

However many are now speculating the game to be instead in the vein of Pokemon XD, which was a standalone console RPG, different from the handheld titles of the time.

After several years, Nintendo is reviving one of its classic franchises by bringing "Metroid Prime 4" to the Nintendo Switch.

Nintendo recognizes that demand varies by game, and wants to make sure that when it comes to the most requested titles, fans are assured that their excitement isn't unheard. "Those are all of the things that we need to think about from a business standpoint".

"It's everything from not only how is it going to work but it's also how we do this in a way that doesn't lend itself to piracy or systems or our core software infrastructure that can be modded or hacked", Fils-Aime told Mashable.

To fully understand Nintendo's approach to gaming, it's important to go back to the 2006 release of the Wii, and what that console's design said about the company. "Obviously we have online modes as well so I think it's a game that a lot of people are going to be able to enjoy".

The announcement of Metroid: Samus Returns, is proof that a game doesn't have to melt your eyeballs in terms of its graphical prowess to get gamers screaming with excitement.
