Smith: Speaking of emerging tech, lots of people are talking about Nintendo Switch. How do you feel about Nintendo Switch?
Schafer: You know I always get excited about every Nintendo system and I always buy it (laughs). I already pre-ordered it and I tried to get the red and blue one but it got taken out of my cart while I was ordering it and I had to get a gray one! I’m always excited about Nintendo, I love Nintendo games and I’m excited about this one. I’m excited about Zelda. The hardware seems cool and everyone seems excited about it, so I’m happy for them and I”m looking forward to playing.
Smith: You think Nintendo has recovered from the Wii U? Is this a better step?
Schafer: I don’t know! I played a ton of "Mario Kart 8" and "Super Mario Land" with my daughter on co-op, so I got a lot of use out of that hardware. People have written a lot of articles about what Nintendo should do, what they’re doing right and wrong, but Nintendo just keeps coming every year so they must be doing something right.
Smith: Does Double Fine plan on releasing any games for the Switch? Are you talking about that internally at all?
Schafer: We don’t have anything to announce there.
Smith: But are you interested?
Schafer: It’s not impossible.
