Nintendo unveiled its new business plan focusing on Quality of Life last week during the Q3 financial results – which would be a separate venture from its video game production – but it seemingly left investors confused as much as the company’s fans. In order to focus on improving consumer lifestyle and general health, Nintendo will develop ‘non-wearable’ technology. CEO Satoru Iwata has helped to clear up such confusion by giving investors a small hint. He also provided additional slides – one of which can be seen above – presenting how Nintendo’s previous technology has benefited overall consumer health.
“I am not planning to announce any specific themes today, but to give you a hint, ‘non-wearable’ does not necessarily mean it is something that will be used in the living room. I apologize for not being clear, but please allow me to leave it at that today. I will explain in detail when the time comes.”
