Japan’s prime minister feels that, believe it or not, the country can learn from Nintendo.

When asked about his growth strategy for Japan, Shinzo Abe said:

“Well, for example, there’s a company called Nintendo. Over there, they made hanafuda cards, but gradually the people playing hanafuda decreased. However, that company called Nintendo makes hanafuda cards and whatnot, and I believe that only by doing that, it wasn’t able to protect hanafuda.”

According to Abe, Nintendo used technical expertise to lead the way in developing home video game consoles.

“And at the same time, it is keeping the traditional hanafuda cards. For sure, I think this is something that we can learn from.”

Howard Lincoln, former chairman for Nintendo of America, is thanked in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze’s credits. The news is hardly earth-shattering, but it’s an interesting nugget. Lincoln was last thanked in a Nintendo game for Metroid Prime 3: Corruption – not Donkey Kong Country Returns. By including Lincoln in the Tropical Freeze credits, Retro could be trying to thank him for helping establish the company.
