“Nintendo places the highest emphasis on providing consumers with innovative entertainment that has never been experienced.”
☆ NintendObs Event – Nintendo FY3/2014.
(1) Basic management policy
In the field of home entertainment, Nintendo strives to create new and unique forms of entertainment while maintaining a robust business structure.
Nintendo places the highest emphasis on providing consumers with innovative entertainment that has never been experienced.
(2) Targeted management index
In the home entertainment industry, it is essential to provide new and entertaining products consistently. Upon accomplishing this, Nintendo aims to improve its corporate value by sustaining robust growth and increasing profit. Because Nintendo deals with entertainment products, which by nature hold many uncertainties in terms of their product development, and operates in a market which involves intense competition, flexible business decisions are made without being constrained by any specific management index.
(3) Medium and long-term management strategy and challenges
In the belief that the true value of entertainment lies in individuality, Nintendo continues to provide unique products and services by positioning as its core management strategy the dedicated video game platform business of hardware and software integration, in which Nintendo can best leverage its strengths. In addition, by introducing Nintendo Network IDs and taking advantage of smart devices, for example, Nintendo strives to strengthen its efforts to build a long-term relationship with its consumers and expand the market of its own platforms.
Moreover, by redefining entertainment as something that improves people’s QOL (Quality of Life) in enjoyable ways, Nintendo aims to deploy a new platform business that improves people’s QOL in enjoyable ways in a new field that is different from that of dedicated video game systems. The first theme will be health, and Nintendo plans to capitalize on being an entertainment company in devising a unique approach of its own.
In addition, Nintendo strives to utilize its abundance of character IP more actively, providing its IP with more exposure in places other than video games, while achieving a certain level of profit from its licensing business at the same time.
With its mission to pleasantly surprise consumers and put smiles on the faces of everyone it touches, Nintendo will continue to offer new and unique propositions and contribute to the development of the home entertainment industry.
