Ian DeMartino of Demagogue writes: "Nintendo has had an up and down year, mostly down. In order to get back to their former state of prominence, Nintendo’s President Satoru Iwata promised big changes at the company. In a speech to investors, he revealed some of Nintendo’s short term goals and alluded to, without revealing, some long term ones.
It’s those still secret long term plans that this article is most interested in. Keep in mind, this list is completely speculative. I will explain why I feel Nintendo may go in this or that direction, and what evidence supports it, but none of this should be taken as anything but speculation. Everything mentioned is possible under Iwata’s stated plans, but he was vague, and Nintendo could go in a million different directions. These are three ways I feel Nintendo could, and in my opinion should, move in order to return to profitability."
