Nintendo's greatest strength and weakness is innovation, says Rayman creator

Rayman Legends creator Michel Ancel has shared his view of Nintendo as both a risk-taker, and its penchant for surprising people.

The quotes come from an interview with ONM, during which Ancel said, "Nintendo’s greatest strength, and its greatest weakness, is innovation. It’s a company that takes a lot of risks. Few people understand that innovation involves risk-taking, because you don’t control everything on the market.

"Today, the biggest surprises seem to come from Nintendo. People may like those surprises or not, but that’s a fact. Miiverse was a surprise, the GamePad was a surprise. What will come next? I can’t wait!"

Do you agree with Ancel's depiction of Nintendo? Let us know below.
