Take Two Games excited with upcoming Nintendo NX

The console’s existence was confirmed in early 2015, but Nintendo still has yet to reveal concrete details about the Nintendo NX. Even so, that hasn’t stopped industry insiders from discussing the console, with Ubisoft calling it “really great,” and Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick recently stating that his company is “enthusiastic” about the possibilities of Nintendo NX.

The console’s existence was confirmed in early 2015, but Nintendo still has yet to reveal concrete details about the Nintendo NX. Even so, that hasn’t stopped industry insiders from discussing the console, with Ubisoft calling it “really great,” and Take-Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick recently stating that his company is “enthusiastic” about the possibilities of Nintendo NX.

Zelnick said that Take-Two, the parent company of Grand Theft Auto developer Rockstar Games, never wants to count Nintendo out. “We’re believers, they do it over and over again. So we feel pretty enthusiastic really.” However, with Take-Two rarely supporting Nintendo consoles with its games, it’s hard to tell if Zelnick’s enthusiasm is genuine.

In Zelnick’s defense, Nintendo did not give third parties much reason to support its latest home console, the Wii U. Wii U has sold poorly so far, and the Big N is already looking to move on to its next hardware venture in the form of the NX. Perhaps if NX has a strong sales presence out of the gate, Take-Two will be convinced to bring some of its popular franchises like BioShock or Grand Theft Auto to the device.
