A question & answer session at today’s General Meeting of Shareholders held by Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa has revealed that the company is considering the possibility of more mini retro systems. Both the NES Classic Mini and the Super NES Classic Mini consoles were a massive success for Nintendo and consumers lapped them up. Mr. Furukawa says he understands the popularity of retro content and wants to deliver that in as many ways as possible, whether it is via new Classic Mini systems, Nintendo Switch Online, or other means, he clearly understands that the demand is there.
“We always want our products to be played by people of all ages, from children to adults. In fact, after being in the video game business for many years, we believe that there is now a very wide range of generations who have adopted Nintendo consoles.
“We will continue to examine the possibility of offering classic content, such as with the NES and Super NES Classic Mini series, as well as our online services, as a way of communicating the appeal of our products to different generations.”
