Given Playerunknown's Battlegrounds' global success, we want to ensure that we have the operational efficiency that is required to support the game globally. This new structure allows us to be nimble as we look towards the expansion of strategic business opportunities that include the game's potential in the eSports sector and the growth of PUBG as a true global IP

Tsunekazu Ishihara - The Pokemon Company

I told Nintendo that Switch wouldn't be a success before it went on sale, because I thought that in the age of the smartphone, no one would carry out a game console. It's obvious I was wrong. I came to realise the key to a successful game is quite simple: Software with absolute quality leads sales of hardware. Playing style can be flexible if the software is attractive enough. Currently, it's popular among the early adopters, but there needs to be one more step to attract a wider audience. I see more potential in Switch, but one shouldn't overestimate its

We have been encouraged by the recent growth in both the UK and Spanish markets overall and we expect that this momentum will continue into peak trading driven by the benefits of continued customer demand for the Nintendo Switch, the launch of Microsoft's Xbox One X and a strong line up of new games releases.

Role-playing games are experiencing a market resurgence. Driven by titles such as Horizon: Zero Dawn, Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue, Mass Effect: Andromeda, Nier: Automata, Nioh, and Persona 5, year-to-date dollar sales of RPGs has grown more than 50 percent when compared to the same period a year

This adapter was developed by request of my friend Rami Wehbe, who wanted a way to play Zelda: Breath of the Wild using only his left hand; as he lost the ability to control his right hand due to a cerebrovascular accident.

We would always play 'Super Smash Brothers' on Nintendo. I remember one day, Alex had ordered a spare Nintendo 64. He had just cooked a four-course meal, with chicken, green beans and everything, and he was mad because we wouldn't stop playing.

Switch has turned out to be a stealth hit and is positioned to drive Wii-type [the company's last successful console] software sales and profits cycle. Switch's appeal to core-gamers (vs. Wii to casual gamers) is likely to drive higher attach-rate and higher earnings than Wii-era. Nintendo is also actively targeting and courting its core-gamers with a very powerful game line-up in the year 1 of Switch's launch. We believe this is the most powerful and attractive line-up of any Nintendo game console

The key driver of Pokemon Go's achievement has been the strength of the Pokemon brand that has been built up over the last 20 years and the strong nostalgia element associated with it.

Just seeing the words Zelda and Mario in the same breath, in the same year - I can't remember that ever happening. That's really good, but what are the odds that Nintendo keeps that going with two of the big IPs in the same year. There's no way. They just haven't done that in the past. ... If they don't have three games that everybody wants, it's going to be hard for people to justify buying

Michael Pachter - Wedbush Securities

I think [Tatsumi Kimishima] has no idea what he's talking about. The Wii sold 100 million units – and sold 14 million the first year. I would really be surprised if this thing sells 14 million this year. But then the Wii sold 19 million the next year. And that's not going to happen [with Switch] unless grandma starts playing [with it]. ...

I'm sure some people right now are not going to jump on getting a Switch because it's $299 and there's only one killer game. But when there are three, four, five, six or seven killer games, you'll see those people jumping. And it will result in a higher attach rate, which is what's really

One of the huge influences on me was not even the real John Motson, but the John Motson on the FIFA video games, because part of me becoming a total die-hard in the sport was my Nintendo 64 for my 13th birthday with FIFA 98.

Every day millions of internet users ask Google life’s most difficult questions, big and small. Our writers answer some of the commonest queries.

There was a lot of free time. Gaming back then, I loved it and I did it a lot.

The strategy is working. Nintendo sold more 3DS units. People went out and bought out a $180 dollar device just to play Pokemon games. It is clear there was a strong effect of Pokemon Go.

It's not like in mobile games, if an app doesn't work, you blew $5 million developing it but you move to the next one, but you cannot do that with a console.

Reggie Fils-Aime

[It] looks a lot better than I envisioned. Footage of basketball game implies more third party support than expected. ... If Nintendo gets the pricing on Switch right (my guess $200 - 250 including docking station and extra controller), [it will] likely [be] a big

Nintendo Switch allows gamers the freedom to play however they like. It gives game developers new abilities to bring their creative visions to life by opening up the concept of gaming without

Nevertheless, we will be looking to get a sense of how the NX is different, and what kind of things will be made possible as compared to previous and existing game

Sony doesn't have the same power as the Nintendo IP. There is nothing that comes even close to Mario. If the first couple of games from that company just don't work, I think the smartphone game business will see the same fate as the portable game business. Nobody talks about the Vita

Japan is a market where Sony and other console makers are struggling to sell units. Sony had to react. People are consuming smartphone games like there is no

There's a huge saturation of mobiles, there are billions (of dollars) being made in mobile gaming ... and Nintendo has realized that. Nintendo is an entertainment company so will go in whatever direction they can

A new Mario game is likely to be popular not only among the kid/teen crowd but also among the older Millennial generation who grew up with the famous game. Apple is hoping to recreate the 'Pokemon Go' craze of the summer, which also leveraged an established gaming character and a sense of nostalgia to engage gamers from older

We have created Super Mario Run to be perfect for playing on your iPhone. Super Mario has evolved whenever he has encountered a new platform, and for the first time ever, players will be able to enjoy a full-fledged Super Mario game with just one hand, giving them the freedom to play while riding the subway or my favorite, eating a

Top Olympic sponsors pay millions of dollars to the IOC for permission to promote their brands to a massive global audience. Nintendo just did it for free -- with Japan's prime minister as their pitchman. Easily the marketing coup of the Rio

Yasuhiro Minagawa - Nintendo

I want to make that clear. We did not pay. And we are not going to become Olympic sponsors

Bob Dorfman

But gaming and anime are certainly major aspects of modern Japan, and Mario is a universal icon. As someone who doesn't take sports or the Olympics too seriously, I found the whole thing pretty funny and

Seth Fischer - Oasis Management

This is great for Nintendo. They have an enormous amount of patents, about 4,000 patents; we think they can make an additional 300 - 800 million dollars a year of monetization of their mobile game [patents], as well as, multiplayer

Piers Harding-Rolls

It has a knock-on effect on their traditional businesses the handheld devices and brands associated with that. There has been an uptick in sales in Pokemon games, 3DS handheld (console) and there are new Pokemon games later this

Of course the hard part of all of these things is monetising them, but I believe Nintendo has set a precedent and I hope they will be able to capitalise on that going

Darren Sinden

What I think they have done with Pokemon GO here is establish a precedent, that a console company can enter the world of online gaming. More importantly a game that is augmented reality. So I think they have proved the business case, they have got some other great characters that may be able to make the jump from the console world into the online and hand-held gaming

Laura Martin - Needham

I think the point is that while Nintendo has gone up 20 billion and they do have IP risks, Apple does not. It is hedged because the next genius that makes a hit game, Apple shares on that one too. So while this one may be transitory, Apple has an option on all future hit games over the iOS

When you look at the way it's becoming a social phenomenon in the U.S., the rally is understandable even though it's not clear yet how much it will boost profits. People still remember the time when the Wii and the DS became a hit and boosted Nintendo's

Chihiro Ohta - SMBC Nikko Securities

The Nikkei is now on its fourth day of gains, and the dollar is also back around 104 yen, so it is quite natural for sellers to emerge and limit the upside. That said, the market still appears well

Let's see how popular it is when it starts raining and fall comes around. Will people still be walking around in the snow chasing Pokemon? ... Just like every other mobile game, it will have to face the retention figures after 7, 30 and 90 days.

I am concerned about the extent to which Niantic may be unnecessarily collecting, using, and sharing a wide range of users' personal information without their appropriate consent.

I think it creates a lot of potential excitement for NX. It's crazy the amount of attention this game has gotten. And attention creates awareness. It gets people thinking about Nintendo and there are ancillary benefits for people thinking about the company's IP. It's a positive because it creates curiosity. And Nintendo has had success in leveraging handheld consoles – like the DS – and creating interest in its consoles

There are different methods of doing 3D. The oldest one is the red green glasses, the paper glasses you probably remember going back to the 1950s. The problem with that is that it only gives you half the colour per eye, so you get a distorted colour when you're in 3D mode. The newer methods are the sequential frame active glasses, such as the ones from Nvidia, the 3D vision glasses which give you full resolution and full colour per eye, and there is another method called micropolarised, which polarizes the light into left and

Today we are doing a lot of literacy work: so when they are using the Nintendo consoles today they are doing reading with them. So they are wanting to find an egg, help it to hatch and look after it so that the creature can grow, which transfers to real life nurturing skills such as looking after a pet or young children at home. Quite a few of the children in the class have got new babies at home which is also nice for them as they are able to know what babies
