Last week, Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata sat down with a Japanese newspaper to discuss the next Zelda, the DS successor and other things on the horizon for Nintendo. The CEO commented on how the next DS will have “highly detailed graphics, and it will be necessary to have a sensor with the ability to read the movements of people playing.”
Now Nintendo is attempting to retract what Iwata said. Today, a spokesperson for the company issued a statement to Kotaku. “Mr. Iwata did not make any comments regarding the functions of Nintendo’s future hardware systems,” said Charlie Scibetta, Nintendo of America’s senior director of corporate communications. “The answer to the reporter’s question was misinterpreted.”
According to Nintendo, the Japanese newspaper took something that Iwata didn’t actually say and ran with it.
