Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa‘s interview with Nikkei, which has been getting reported on throughout the day today, has had multiple noteworthy moments. Well, you can now add another one of them to that list. And this time, it’s about a subject that Nintendo isn’t asked that often.
Nintendo‘s acquisition of Next Level Games, announced last month, has resulted in Furukawa talking about the company’s policy on acquiring companies. Furukawa said that “this is a partner that we have been working with for many years to develop various software, and we decided that we could improve the quality and speed of development by making it a subsidiary and working together. We are not just blindly acquiring companies because we want development resources. We don’t think that simply expanding the scale of our business will really improve the value of the entertainment that Nintendo provides”.
