Miyamoto acknowledges its easier than ever to offer backwards compatibility

From VGC: “Nintendo director Shigeru Miyamoto has acknowledged its easier than ever to offer backwards compatibility, but offered a non-committal response when asked about plans for the next Nintendo console.

As part of a Q&A session following the publication of its latest financial results, Nintendos execs were asked what discussions are being held internally about offering backwards compatibility on new hardware.

While Miyamoto did not specifically state which direction future Nintendo consoles would take, he did state that he believes backwards compatibility is easier to implement in the modern era than it was in the past.”
