It sounds like he's apologising for making it seem like SNK made the initial idea to jump to a switch version with a nintendo paid switch disc exclusive, when it was NISA who were the real movers.
In other words, he's apologizing to SNK first and foremost - they don't want to lose business, after all.
Yamashita is lying now. What he disclosed earlier was clearly the truth.
"Then after their meeting, influential people from SNK came to our booth and said: ‘Hey, Mr. Yamashita, is it possible to cancel our contract on PlayStation 4? Nintendo wants to work on this title on an exclusive basis!’ So these third parties come together and the team at NIS and SNK decided to go with Nintendo for the western market."
He either blatantly lied by making up stories, or told the truth of how it went.
In either case, we can see just how incompetent NISA can get - just look at them managing to get into a PR disaster where any move is the wrong move!
I WON A BET AGAINST AZUREN! WOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
