Earlier today, Nintendo posted a transcript of the company’s financial results Q&A from its investor’s meeting. It isn’t available in English just yet, but a few sections have been unofficially translated online.
One topic concerns new games for Wii U. An investor asked Nintendo about the timeframe of new software the company has presented as of late, and also requested information regarding the development structure.
Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said that his company is “not thinking about a long timeframe.” Some of the newly revealed titles will be released from mid-2013 up through the end of the year. Iwata added that there is additional software coming towards the end of the year that has not yet been announced.
“We are not thinking about a long timeframe. We are thinking about Mid year up to End of the year 2013. We also have games that are slated for end of the year that we haven’t mentioned yet.”
And Miyamoto chimed in with a few words of his own, noting that he and Nintendo as a whole “definitely need more employees internally and externally so we are strengthening our development teams.”:
“It takes time to understand the charm of Wii U. We are currently offering a few titles but we are aiming for games that sell steadily for the next 3 years not for games that stop selling after a few weeks. We have a lot of ideas for 2 screen play. We definitely need more employees internally and externally so we are strengthening our development teams.”
