That would certainly be nice, but it doesn't seem like a very Nintendo attitude, just look at the NES Classic, even with a wide selection of modern license compatible emulators they went with a 1995-level-knowledge emulator complete with horrendous sound delay etc. It's an insult to the hard work done by so many people over the years, worse still, it sold like it was made of pure gold or something so they have no reason to do better. Even the emulators running on a Pi run rings around it, and you know I'm not the kind of person to ever recommend one of those.

The anti-emulation scene is deep with that one.

If there's one thing I like it's that all these free emulators set a standard and most companies realise that if they're coming out with their own products they have to come close to that. Nintendo would rather ignore it and show what things would be like if there was no emulation scene.
