Boss of 17-Bit, Jake Kazdal, wants Nintendo to experiment more with VR

The following quote comes from a Nintendo Life interview with Jake Kazdal, the boss of 17-Bit (known for games such as Skulls of the Shogun and Galak-Z):

My gaming time is literally split in half – I love the first-party Nintendo stuff and all the great indie games I play all the time, and when I have time to jump into something really juicy I break out my Oculus Quest and Rift, and my PSVR. I would love more than anything for Nintendo to properly enter this space and just own it; their experiments so far are fantastic, and I really miss the extra dimension available in 3D. In fact, I’m playing Super Mario 3D Land again right now on 3DS. It just is so much more satisfying than playing on a flat 2D screen.

I think there are a lot of misconceptions about VR, people somehow think you need a dedicated room in your house, and I thought so too at first, but it turns out I do most of my VR sitting down on a stool or on my couch, fully engaged in the world but safely settled in the real world not knocking things off the shelves or banging around. With the perfect camera control (humans, it turns out, are very good at using their necks and eyes as cameras) you can focus 100% on playing the game, and being inside the game world as opposed to peering into it through a little 2D window, is just a different world. The experiences are just exponentially more than you can experience on a flat-screen TV.

Random Time! - Fan makes "Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Rewind 2019 - Year 1"

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch was released on Dec 7, 2018. It was a wild first year. This video celebrates the creators, competition, and the moments that defined the year from the game's release to the end of 2019 in a style that parodies this website's YouTube Rewind 2019. 

Unlike the original YouTube Rewind which generated and reviewed their lists through their system. The lists in this video were manually gathered on the last week of 2019 so it's more likely for a mistake. Lists involving creators did not include compilation channels or channels with outright stolen content, re-uploads.

One goal of this video is also to introduce the casual and competitive audiences of the game to each other. Where casual YouTube viewers can learn about the biggest tournaments and competitors can learn about the biggest Smashtubers.
