Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima has weighed in on the Nintendo Switch.
Speaking to IGN, the veteran designer said he specifically likes the console’s hybrid nature. The system combines at-home and on-the-go elements, which is not unlike the “Transfarring” idea that Kojima cooked up for moving data between PlayStation Vita and PlayStation 3.
“I believe [Switch] is an extension of that idea,” he said. “The fact you can play something at home and take it outside, this is the gamer’s dream. The Switch is an evolution of that.”
Kojima added: “I feel like cloud technology is what everything will eventually move to. It’s further behind right now than I think where people thought it would be at this point, but I think it will go there, and when the infrastructure is ready, you’ll be able to play everything, on every device, anywhere. The Switch is the predecessor to this step.”
