Nintendo’s True Message About The Future

Gamnesia: "There seems to be a lot of confusion running around in regards to how Nintendo plans to tackle their future. This really shouldn’t be too big of a surprise given that, on the surface, Nintendo has been providing a bit of a mixed message lately. However, the overall message is still there, and if Nintendo can pull off all of its many ambitions, this should hopefully mean a rather bright future for the company." (3DS, Wii U)

I think a recurring issue with Nintendo over the last few years is simply a lack of attentiveness to its supporters. The idea of fixing the account system is good, but being able to reward people for sticking by them is smart. They need to show the fans that they value them and that they appreciate them sticking around. Lowering prices for long-time supporters is a great idea, one that I really hope more companies consider for their respective fans.

Let's face it: out of all of the companies in the industry, Nintendo is the one that's always doing something against the grain. That's in their DNA. I don't know what they're planning, but I don't think anyone's gonna expect it.

Cool article. Critical, but not scathing.

I agree, sometimes Nintendo has a lack of attentiveness to it's supporters. Their latest investors meeting was promising, though. It looks like they're really trying to change for the better, one step at a time.
I'm looking forward to finding out what Nintendo does next, because they're always doing stuff that nobody expects. It's exciting. Still waiting on a new Starfox or Metroid. Could announce one any day :)

Yeah, that investor's meeting actually gave us quite a bit of interesting tidbits.

"[Nintendo] will actively expand our character licensing business, including proactively finding appropriate partners."

That part has me stoked. Proactively searching for appropriate partnerships for their IP's? Awesome. They've done this a bit with some Japanese companies (especially in recent years) but I hope they go further now and partner up with some western developers as well.

Now we just need a killer Nintendo Direct sometime soon. Come on Nintendo, you haven't had one at all for close to a month and a half, what's up your sleeve?

Nintendos future is bright as usual.

with the exception of the wiiu, it has no future.
