Nintendo held its latest Corporate Management Policy Briefing, led by President Shuntaro Furukawa, giving investors a vague update on the company’s future. The briefing focuses on Nintendo’s hardware plans and their future outlook.
According to the report, Nintendo intends to keep expanding their IP and their “next gaming system” will also take the “integrated hardware-software” approach. The placeholder release date for the next console is “20XX” which doesn’t really mean very much outside of confirming Nintendo is already working on the next console. The briefing also states Nintendo plans to continue using Nintendo accounts to establish “long-term, mutually positive relationships” with consumers.
The report comes with a timeline of some of the more recent Nintendo consoles from 2004. On a somewhat amusing note, Nintendo opted to leave the Nintendo Wii U out of the list and skipped from the Nintendo Wii straight to the Nintendo Switch.
