Nintendo is Transitioning, Young Devs Are Key for the Process

Over the past couple of years, mainly after the failure of Wii U, Nintendo has gone into transition mode. The company is now looking at mobile market and from what we can see, it is changing the way it handles its current affairs.

NX is shaping up to be a very unique machine that is, thankfully, on par with rivals. At least according to the rumors surrounding this platform. Nintendo is betting on NX to once again create a stronghold in the console market.

From what I can remember, Nintendo has (for the most part) counted on industry veterans to take its company and development forward; but it looks like things are about change. Young devs are going to be more involved to keep the flow of new and creative ideas.

The mighty JP giant says that young developers are key for its transition. In a time where Sony and Microsoft are making sure they get the best young talent to work with them, it is a very smart move from Nintendo to do the same.

President Tatsumi Kimishima said in an investor Q&A that young minds are key to “transition to the next generation and to continue to produce exciting ideas. It is important to structure our organization so that these young people can take active roles. We have worked to establish such an organization; one that will allow our employees to reach their full potential in many different areas.”

One of the key elements Nintendo always missed is a strong network, something that can compete with PlayStation Network and Xbox Live. If Nintendo can introduce a similar service, combined that with its new development strategies, the company can make an impressive comeback in the console market.
