Nintendo of America’s Charlie Scibetta, has detailed why NOA doesn’t like to release games in the summer time.
“We do the bulk of our business in the holiday season, probably about 60% in October, November, and December. You want to launch games when people are in the mood to buy.”
Gotta love that 90’s mentality that people are only in the mood/can afford to buy games during the holiday seasons.
The Legend of Zelda Triforce Heroes’ producer Hiromasa Shikata, has revealed Nintendo is not planning to support amiibo with this title:
“I think it’s really something as simple as this game isn’t a natural fit for it. I think [that’s] because we’re focused on giving players the ability to choose different outfits to impact their experience within the game. We didn’t think amiibo added anything other than what games with it are already doing. There’s no reason to shoehorn it in.”
