Hello & good afternoon everyone

source: Nintendo.






Both Nintendo and mobile game company DeNA have entered into a business and capital alliance to develop and operate new game applications for smart devices and build a new multi-device membership service for consumers worldwide, the company announced.

With DeNA who they have teamed up have teamed up with Nintendo intends to leverage the strength of its IP and game development skills in combination with DeNA’s experience in mobile games to develop new game apps based on Nintendo’s IP. Through this, DeNA will also be able to strengthen its global game business. Rather than porting games created for Wii U r 3DS, only new original games optimized for smartphones will be created.



As these consumers enjoy the unique kind of gameplay found only with Nintendo, they will have the opportunity to explore even more premium experiences on Nintendo’s dedicated video game platforms,” Nintendo said in a press release. “Information on upcoming games and availability will be forthcoming.”


An online membership service accessible from smart devices, PCs, and Nintendo systems including Wii U and 3DS is also planned. It is planned for launch this fall and will be build on DeNA”‘s “extensive experience and capabilities in online membership services.”
Under the two companies’ capital alliance, Nintendo will acquire 15,081,000 of DeNA’s treasury shares, which corresponds to 10.00 percent of its total outstanding stock, for a total of approximately 22 billion yen. DeNA will simultaneously acquire 1,759,400 of Nintendo’s treasury shares, which corresponds to 1.24 percent of its outstanding stock, for a total of approximately 22 billion yen. Payment is due April 2.
For starters, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata stated that no Nintendo IP would be off-limits to DeNA. That having been said, smartphone games require services that are constantly adapting and changing, and this will require a considerable combined effort from both Nintendo and DeNA. As a result, the two companies will narrow their focus to some extent, instead of releasing an extremely large number of titles.
 
 Regarding the design of these games, Iwata stated that some smartphone games have a “notorious” reputation for overcharging consumers or being inappropriate for children due to their monetization schemes. Nintendo, he said, wish to avoid doing this and will make an effort not to indulge in unfair practices. In fact, Nintendo will be handling the planning and design for their smartphone titles. Meanwhile, DeNA will handle server development, daily operations, and user analysis, since those are the company’s strengths.
 
 The revenue split between Nintendo and DeNA for their smartphone games will vary from title to title, Iwata said. The split will depend on the investment made by both companies in a particular game. It will not be dependent on the scope or scale of either company, but the resources spent by both on the title in question.
 
 When asked why Nintendo chose DeNA to partner with, Iwata replied that while Nintendo have received offers from a number of companies, they chose DeNA because of their dedication to pursuing a relationship with Nintendo and because they hold talent in areas Nintendo are weak in. He also stated that he couldn’t say whether or not Nintendo’s partnership with DeNA will be a permanently exclusive deal, but for now, DeNA is the company they have chosen to partner with.

Nintendo has also stated that its DeNA alliance doesn’t mean it’s lost passion and vision for the dedicated video game system business, and went as far as to announce development on its next game platform, code-named “NX,” is underway with details are coming next year.
“As proof that Nintendo maintains strong enthusiasm for the dedicated game system business, let me confirm that Nintendo is currently developing a dedicated game platform with a brand-new concept under the development code-name ‘NX,'” Nintendo president and CEO Satoru Iwata said. “It is too early to elaborate on the details of this project, but we hope to share more information with you next year.”

Also as part of their alliance, Nintendo now own 10% of DeNA’s shares, making them the second-largest shareholder in the company, behind former DeNA CEO Tomoko Namba. Meanwhile, DeNA now own a 1.24% stake in Nintendo.



In addition to developing smartphone games with Nintendo, DeNA will also help the company create its new membership service, Nintendo said today. This membership service will be compatible with Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, PC, and smart devices.
 
 During a Q&A at a joint press event with DeNA, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata confirmed that this new membership service will include a new royalty program to replace Club Nintendo, Which shut Down in Janary .

While details weren't specifically shared on this front, Iwata has provided examples in the past (<< Link leads to a article from Siliconera) leads of how the royalty program will allow discounts for frequent purchasers of games on Nintendo platforms.
 
 Iwata Also hasn't discuss how the membership system will tie into Nintendo’s existing Nintendo Network service or if it will use Nintendo Network ID accounts (yet) . However, he did talk a little about how user data will be managed.
 
 While Nintendo’s new membership service will be jointly developed with DeNA, Nintendo will own and manage all related user data, Iwata said. Some of this data will be shared with DeNA to allow them to develop smartphone games using Nintendo IP, but Iwata stated that both companies wish to avoid a situation where access to the user database is used in a negative manner.
 
 DeNA CEO Isao Moriyasu added that accumulated data shared with DeNA will not be used for any separate kind of business by the company without consent from Nintendo.
 
 The new membership service will launch this Fall. It is intended to be compatible with Nintendo and DeNA’s smartphone games, and also drive consumers to Nintendo’s dedicated videogame devices, such as the Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, and Nintendo’s

Iwata has also said it is currently too early to reveal details on NX, but that more details on this device will be shared next year. He did not provide any further details regarding what shape the device would take, but has said in the past (<< Link also leads to a article from Siliconera about earlier talks about the new console development older Q&A ) that Nintendo’s next home console and handheld will both share a similar architecture and operating system.

 During the joint press conference with DeNA, Iwata clarified that Nintendo will not port videogames created for dedicated consoles to smart devices. He went on to say that Nintendo intends to use smartphone games to draw consumers to their dedicated videogame platforms, and that the company maintains its passion for dedicated game devices and game experiences that offer good value to customers.
 
 Update: During a Q&A session, Iwata was Also asked why the company chose to announce the next dedicated videogame console during a press conference about their partnership with DeNA. He replied that Nintendo chose to make the NX announcement so people would understand that Nintendo are not exiting the dedicated videogame business, and that the company “will be progressing with dedicated videogame devices with passion”

Report: Nintendo's Next Platform NX Combines Console And Handheld In Some Way


The exact shape of the NX hardware isn’t yet clear. People familiar with the development plans said Nintendo would likely include both a console and at least one mobile unit that could either be used in conjunction with the console or taken on the road for separate use. They also said Nintendo would aim to put industry-leading chips in the NX devices, after criticism that the Wii U’s capabilities didn’t match those of competitors.

I feel that people are jumping the gun saying that the Wii U is now dead and NX will release next year. The only reason NX was mentioned when it was was to prevent "Nintendo's done with hardware!" talk after the mobile announcement.

The Wii U has some great content coming all the way into April, and Zelda has recently been reconfirmed for the Wii U. I have seen no solid evidence that the "announce hardware at one E3, release after next" cycle is about to be broken.

your absolutely correct  it was to appease the share holder and to stuff some worry from fans saying Ninten doomed as become the term around the web  Vic even said as much in one of the many Rundowns  Nintendo said they would talk about the NX not that it'll release next year. it'll likely be 2017 in mid year if not early. so far the only game talked about forthe NX are the New metroid and dragon quest game  (And square said maybe with the latter) I do hope the latter happens though.

Speaking in an interview Nintendo President, Tatsumi Kimishima has addressed and reaffirmed some of the previous statements he has made about the company’s upcoming console.


Kimishima says, “The NX is neither the successor to the Wii U nor to the 3DS, It’s a new way of playing games, which I think will have a larger impact than the Wii U, but I don’t feel it’s a pure replacement for the Wii U.” The claim addresses that the upcoming new console will outperform the Wii U in specs and the market.




Since Kimishima took the title as President of Nintendo, he has wanted to expand upon the hardware and not just create the same version of the box over and over. This addressed the previous issue that the 3DS and Wii U are just different versions of the consoles before them.
Additionally, in the same interview, Kimishima says the company is making moves to enter the film business. These will not be live-action films, but more anime-type movies featuring characters from various Nintendo IPs.




Thanks, GSR.
The NX will be released in March 2017 with a special reveal event happening sometime later this year.

Industry
Rumor: Nintendo developing new handheld code-named MH [Update 2]

Published 21 hours ago. 184 comments.

New handheld appears in financial report.

In addition to its new console code-named NX, which is scheduled to launch worldwide in March, Nintendo is developing a new handheld console code-named MH, according to a report on investor news site Trader’s Web.
Further information was not shared. The “MH” handheld itself is mentioned in a Nintendo Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley financial report.
(This article has no relation to Monster Hunter. We’re just using a Monster Hunter image since the console is reportedly code-named “MH.”)
Thanks, Games Talk.
Update 7:08 a.m.: Dr. Serkan Toto, CEO of Tokyo-based game industry consultancy Kantan Games, offers the following on the report: “That Morgan Stanley Japan note on Nintendo does NOT mean a portable console or the name ‘MH’ is confirmed. They are picturing a scenario. Such ‘rich’ forward-looking analysis and also the wording is standard in investor notes. I know because I read *tons* of them.”
Update 1:30 p.m.: Dr. Serkan Toto has offered more clarification on the report: “Final tweet(s) about that Morgan Stanley Japan note on Nintendo: I just received and read it. As I said, they were picturing a scenario. Financial institutions do this kind of future-oriented analysis all the time. The note is much longer than what was released online. The analyst clearly says they are just projecting. They use ‘MH’ as a codename to make the report more readable. It’s arbitrary. In the note, they compare future/theoretical sales of the ‘MH’ with that of the 3DS, so I guess the short name makes sense.”

Ever since Nintendo first mentioned their upcoming NX console last year we haven’t heard much about it at all, but Shigeru Miyamoto shared an explanation in an interview with Associated Press.
 
 Here’s what he said about the NX in the interview:

 “In terms of NX, there’s an idea that we’re working on. That’s why we can’t share anything at this point, and I don’t want to comment on the other companies. If it was just a matter of following advancements in technology, things would be coming out a lot quicker.”

 We can expect to learn more about the Nintendo NX sometime this year.

Nintendo Reconfirms NX’s March 2017 Launch And More At 76th General Shareholder’s Meeting. June 29, 2016 . 1:00am

where the company shared the latest information, from their upcoming NX console to software sales.
Quote


Nintendo held their 76th annual general meeting of shareholders today, where the company shared the latest information, from their upcoming NX console to software sales. [Thanks, Nintendo Everything.]
 
 Here are some of the highlights from the meeting:
 
There were no big 3DS hit titles, so sales were low



Splatoon, Mario Maker, Twilight Princess HD did well

amiibo hit 24.7 million units
Download sales totaled 43.9 billion yen
Miitomo got off to a good start
Operating income recovered, but losses due to the strong yen reduced ordinary and net income
Pokemon Sun/Moon 3DS due out worldwide in November, with many other Nintendo, strong 3rd-party titles to be released
The aim with 3DS is to make the platform active again

NX reconfirmed for worldwide launch in March 2017; the dedicated game machine business will continue to be core
amiibo and download businesses will continue to receive focus
Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing come to smart devices this fall
Focusing on My Nintendo, we want to create synergy between the dedicated game machine and smart device businesses
Nintendo IP will be used in theme parks, character goods, and film contents

Nintendo said the Wii U would continue to fight on, but only Zelda is coming next year
 Here are some highlights from the Q&A session:
 
 Q1. I’ve held shares for 20 years. I want to protest the board of directors being all-male. Remember half of the market is female. Also, I don’t use a PC, and I’d like the opinions of those kinds of shareholders to be taken into account.
 A1. Kimishima: We don’t have any females [on the board]. For foreigners, Reggie is an operating officer. There are many female employees, and their opinions are applied in product development. It’s important that we continue taking their opinions in dev.
 Q2. Looking at the balance sheet, I think this is a very good company, but the stock price is low and needs to be increased. For example, focusing on VR, developing software for elders to exercise and prevent dementia, and other various types of efforts. I would also like a young director to be appointed.
 A2. Kimishima: Other companies’ VR presentations at E3 became a topic of discussion. It has captured customers’ interest, and while we’re researching it, we don’t have anything concrete to discuss now. To increase the stock price, we’re utilizing our IP, researching QOL, preparing the NX, and taking on many such challenges.
 
 Q3. It’s been reported that Great Britain is leaving the EU. Does this affect Nintendo, and if so, what are you doing about it?
 Kimishima: Financial markets are in turmoil. For now, the yen is strengthening, causing our foreign assets to fall. We have Nintendo UK, and safety standards and personal information regulations from the EU may change under the UK. We’re watching the situation and making preparations.
 Q11: About NX manufacturing, I hear that labor costs in China are rising and that robotic assembly is increasing. While going to fabless contract manufacturing, I want to know how you will keep costs down going forward.
 Hirokazu Shinshi: I’m in charge of manufacturing. Labor costs have shot up in the last 10 years in China and across ASEAN nations. Manufacturing automation has long been practiced in Japan, and is now done in China. While making the same product for a long time, the amount manufactured changes based on things like the Christmas season. It’s easy to automate unchanging production amounts, but it’s difficult when they do change. We’re thoroughly communicating with our partners to make adjustments. As for the NX, manufacturing is being prepped. We’re considering how much to automate.
 
 Q15. I believe that the game industry’s biggest problems are increasing development costs and the length of development. I’d like to hear from each director what their approach to this is.
 Kimishima: Certainly, development costs have increased in the last 10 years. Let’s have each director answer.
 Takeda: We’re using increases in productivity to make an appeal with the greatness of games instead of [hardware] performance.
 Miyamoto: Breath of the Wild has over 100 staff, and over 300 people in the credits, spending over 5 years. Our current efforts will be helpful in the next production. The costs will be recovered by selling in large volumes, passing 2m sales. A game is a hit in the domestic market if it reaches 300k sales, but we’re targeting worldwide sales. Reviews on the Internet get around. Details get pointed out, so our staff is working more than is required.
 Shinya Takahashi: By using resources made for Zelda on other software, we can make many compact titles. The last Brain Training sold a lot with small resources. We’re doing lots of things to reduce development times like reusing game engines.
 You can read the full report over at Nintendo Everything.
