If his work with Final Fantasy VII, Xenogears, and Chrono Trigger is any sign of credibility, Masato Kato shares his take on the future of Nintendo...or lack thereof. According to the writer of the three aforementioned classics, "the epoch of Nintendo is finished."
"With the iPad going on sale, the epoch of Nintendo is finished," Kato said through Twitter. "But with the DS and the Wii, it's been digging its own grave."
The now freelance writer didn't specify how exactly would the DS and Wii would spell doom for Nintendo, especially considering both have sold tremendously over the past few years.
