Nintendo has recently confirmed in their latest investor’s briefing, which was released earlier today they said that they would continue to offer a gaming system which will have its own unique integrated hardware-software. They stated, “In the future, Nintendo still plans to expand its business around the creation of unique integrated hardware-software products” in their investor’s briefing.
The next Nintendo Console could be a Nintendo Switch Pro according to recent reports.
Nintendo is also holding a mini-direct tomorrow they will reveal some information from upcoming Indie Partners of Nintendo:
In their last Investor’s Briefing, they also stated that they would stick to the direct format. Nintendo usually did an E3 Presentation showcasing their upcoming games and some other games coming to Nintendo Switch. Still, this year’s E3 was canceled due to COVID-19 issues, so Nintendo is sticking to the Nintendo Direct Format for showcasing their upcoming titles. But there hasn’t been a big direct in a while, so there’s that.
In a Share Holders meeting, Furukawa (The President of Nintendo) was suggested, “There are no Nintendo Direct announcements usually held together with E3 because this event has been canceled this year due to COVID-19. Also, I am concerned as an investor that, at present, there are a few software titles with a set release date. I was relieved to hear Director Takahashi says that software titles planned for release this fiscal year currently have not been affected. Still, I’d like to see some titles announced via a Nintendo Direct soon. Also, as times have changed, I feel it might be a good idea to review the whole process of making announcements using Nintendo Direct.”
Furukawa responded with
“In the annual shareholder’s meetings, we have routinely shown a video of E3, which was usually held just before the meeting. But this year, none of the significant industry events are being held because of COVID-19, not only E3, and Nintendo also has no plans for any such occurrences. We intend to use other methods flexibly to deliver the latest information on our products, so please stay tuned. We have continuously released reports, including the announcement of a new fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Nintendo Switch and the decision by The Pokémon Company of new Pokémon-related titles.
We think the Nintendo Direct format is handy for us to directly and convey information about games to consumers. On the other hand, as the times change, the most effective ways of sending information can also vary, so I think we should always be looking for the best ways of communicating.”
