A couple of weeks ago, Nintendo held their six-month financial results briefing. As usual, the financial results briefing has a Q&A segment where investors ask Nintendo a variety of questions. A transcript of the Q&A segment is usually posted the day after, and an English-translated version a week or two later.
Well, the English-translated version of the recent financial results briefing’s Q&A segment has been posted. In it, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa is asked about the impact that third-party games will have on the Switch going forward. Furukawa said that “other software publishers plan to release a wide variety of titles for Nintendo Switch going forward. There are many genres of games that we cannot make on our own and their providing these kinds of titles enriches the Nintendo Switch gaming experience, so we are very grateful for that.
Furukawa continued, saying that “Regarding the speed of growth in unit sales, the fact is that sales of Nintendo Switch software are increasing both for Nintendo titles and titles by other software publishers, and we want Nintendo Switch to be a platform on which both can continue to sell well”.
