  1. Why bother? Their games remain gorgeous no matter the generation because they put effort into art direction. Not sure why pokemon is on there, though.

  2. because they have the portable market on lockdown and it would be fucking stupid to give that up for any reason
    putting top of the line hardware into portables is extremely expensive, and nintendo has had a fairly steady track record for making beautiful games on underpowered hardware

  3. Why would they? All it would do is make their games take more time and money to develop and their hardware more expensive while the sales would probably be the same.

  4. They tried it with the GameCube and Wii u and both consoles bombed. They went underpowered with the Wii and switch and both times haves paid off by breaking record sales.

  5. Underpowered hard ware is easy to price competitively and consumers either dont know or dont care that its a worse platform for games because they just want to play some mario, entertain their kids and do it on a budget.
