During Nintendo’s 81st Annual General Meeting of Shareholders, one investor brought up media reports that say the company’s games don’t appear to fully take gender into account.

President Shuntaro Furukawa responded, mentioning how Nintendo feels “that diversity, including gender diversity, is very important.” He added that in terms of features for a particular game, “we must make decisions by taking into consideration a wide variety of factors, and we may not always be able to meet every request.”

Below are Furukawa’s full words:

“We believe that diversity, including gender diversity, is very important. As a company providing entertainment, our goal is to put smiles on the faces of everyone connected to Nintendo, and we undertake our development with that goal in mind. Specifically regarding the features of each game, we must make decisions by taking into consideration a wide variety of factors, and we may not always be able to meet every request. However, we take this as valuable feedback.”
