Although committed to continuing research in the field of virtual reality entertainment, Nintendo has made it clear that one of their primary hesitations with incorporating VR in Nintendo NX is the safety of children. Specifically, they aim to eliminate dangers related to VR sickness. As Shigeru Miyamoto explained to shareholders, “We are also looking into how to make sure that a parent doesn’t need to worry when their child puts a VR device in their living room.” Meanwhile, the company plans to develop core technologies for their Nintendo NX and other dedicated hardware. While they are not ruling out virtual reality in the future, for now they believe that more research and development into eliminating virtual reality sickness is the best path for Nintendo to follow.
