Something that Nintendo hasn’t talked about much is gaming on PC, and the company’s stance on it. Well, the Q&A section of Nintendo’s 77th annual shareholders meeting has resulted in the topic of PCs being brought up. Here’s what Nintendo President Kimishima had to say:
Q2: Game industry has 3 segments: mobile/consoles/PC. PC expanding greatly, programmers being birthed overseas. Does Nintendo plan to make PC software/hardware?
A2: Kimishima: We’re aware there are many PC users. Our unified soft/hardware approach is good. However, we also support smartphones. Thanks to smartphones, Nintendo IPs are recognized, leading to returns on console front. Please see videos of our E3 announcements.
