Post Iwata talks Quality of Life and redefining what Nintendo must do

Iwata talks Quality of Life and redefining what Nintendo must do


President of Nintendo Satoru Iwata has given a new interview about the future of the company and was it means for Nintendo to be Nintendo.
Speaking with Japanese website Diamond.jp and translated by Siliconera – Satoru Iwata has said that the late former president Hiroshi Yamauchi’s influence will still be with the company. He wanted Nintendo to always be a entertainment company, not just a creator of video games.

First things first, don’t worry – Nintendo’s main focus will still be on video games. Iwata said “So, even if the fact that our focus being video games won’t be changing, I felt the need to take this occasion to say ‘Nintendo is a company that can do whatever they want’.”

However just because Nintendo can do whatever they want, it doesn’t mean Nintendo will be doing anything. “This subject came to light when Yamauchi passed away, but I felt that ‘our surroundings are greatly changing. We need to redefine what Nintendo must do, from this point on’.
Iwata continued “Yamauchi was one to always say ‘Nintendo is a company for entertainment, and it shouldn’t be for anything else,’ and he didn’t necessarily think that ‘entertainment = video games’. I’ve been wondering how to express Yamauchi’s feelings, and I’ve been thinking about it non-stop, even during the New Year’s holiday break.”

That something else other than video games is the upcoming Quality of Life platform, something we still don’t know much about. What we do know that is Nintendo will be looking to make our lives better, after it’s given us the fun of video games.

Nintendo can have a great future as a transmedia company, and it will also protect it from weakness in a single market and will reduce their over-dependence on a single product.
They could definitely use that entrepreneurial spirit Yamauchi had.

Not sure what a Quality of Life platform is, though.

The “Quality of Life” stuff and Nintendo’s increasing obsession with getting people to exercise and telling them to take breaks and the like continue to make me think that Iwata is not talking about taking Nintendo to different areas in the entertainment industry, but rather health.

Um...what?
The games are exactly what we are asking for. Why can't they wrap their heads around something that we keep asking for over and over and over every day: a revival of their more neglected IPs on the Wii U and third party support? That is all we really want. That and embrace online gaming. As fun as couch multiplayer is, many of their hardcore fans are now adults with limited playtime. Or they don't have any Nintendo gaming friends in real life. Branching out is fine, but fix the main issues first. I would agree with this if they were delivering with the games besides just their 3 safest franchises, but they arent. So they don't have the luxury of being able to spread their focus. They just sound too out of touch.

Quality of Life changes to me sounds like they are making an eShop app or something. Maybe he means it more literally like AotA was thinking tho

I doubt they're going to do anything drastic. Iwata isn't stupid and the poor guy is trying. Of Quality of Life means a bit more exercising stuff, so be it. I actually like Wii Fit and really any of the get active stuff.

And eShop app would be pretty sweet too.

I don't think Nintendo would be stupid enough to leave the gaming industry just to ride the health fad. For one, Iwata would be shooed out of Nintendo if he ever announced anything like that. Second of all, I think it'd be counterproductive to the company to add another branch that requires more hardware, R&D, etc. A good example is Sony. They post monster results off the PS4 but as a whole they aren't doing so hot. That could be a result of mismanagement of Sony's oter brands, but still. Adding another brand could result in the same mismanagement and could cost Nintendo their war chest.

I think Iwata just said that Nintendo is a company that'll change when it needs to to make sure people are having fun. Having fun improves people's quality of life. So Nintendo's gonna change to suit people's quality of life.

I'd like my quality of life to be improved. If I can do it while playing games then that's a win.
