The eSports is increasingly widespread and known throughout the world, so much so that it has become a phenomenon followed by sponsors who automatically bring Much money. All this does not seem interested Nintendo, like the president himself Shuntaro Furukawa wanted to clarify in a recent interview:
Cash-backed eSports attract a lot of audiences, which shows why video games are so fascinating. We are not against it, but since anyone can play our games, with or without experience, of any age or gender, we want to offer something different.
Our strength that differentiates us from others is the global vision, not the rewards of money.
Nintendo therefore has one totally different vision compared to other companies, which push a lot on esports also and above all through sponsors and, consequently, cash prizes. Do you agree with the vision of Furukawa?
