Non-Fungible Tokens, or NFTs, have been a highly contentious subject since they blew up in popularity last year. Often discussed in conjunction with NFTs is the Metaverse; virtual worlds where, in some cases, it would be possible to “own” digital items.
Naturally in Nintendo’s latest investor Q&A session, translated early by David Gibson, the two topics were brought up in a question. As for Nintendo’s reply, the early translation suggests they are “interested” but they “wonder what joy [they] can provide in this area”, stating that it “is difficult to define right now”. This is a similar stance taken by Sega after the company noticed negative backlash.
It’s worth noting that, as David Gibson later mentioned, Nintendo’s response to the question was more focused on the Metaverse than NFTs, but we’ll likely learn more as an officially translated version of the Q&A is released later in the month.
