This isn’t the first time that Greenpeace has had an issue with Nintendo. Today, Greenpeace has strongly criticized Nintendo for their “incredibly poor standard of communication.”

“Nintendo are not engaging at all,” said Iza Kruszewska, toxics campaigner for Greenpeace. “I have spoken to Nintendo’s sales people in the UK, and even they admit that Nintendo isn’t communicating enough, not just externally but internally, apparently…We’re in continuous dialogue with all the companies we speak to, apart from Nintendo. I’ve never been able to get an answer from them aside from a couple of marketing people in the UK who have been trying to forward the messages to global headquarters in Japan, but we get no response from Nintendo. The company has an incredibly poor standard of communication regarding this issue.”

And of course, Greenpeace still does not believe Nintendo is environmentally friendly, either. Kruszewska added, “What really struck me was Nintendo’s response when we asked them about this. They said that their products don’t create waste because… people hang onto them! It’s a very inadequate response, and I’m surprised a serious company like Nintendo would even respond that way.”

“We are using grey but the racetrack logo can be represented in a number of different colours. You’ll often see it in black, white, silver or grey…[The gray logo is benig used] for the time being…This has been the case [black logo for DS packaging, gray for Wii packaging) on both hardware formats since their releases.” – Nintendo statement

I prefer the red logo, simply because it’s a classic representation of Nintendo. What do you guys think?

We’ve been posting snippets from the Nintendo Power interview with Eiji Aonuma over the past week or so, but there is one last significant response to be shared. When asked about the success and longevity of Ocarina of Time, Aonuma said, “I’m happy that a title I worked on some time ago remains highly praised to this day, but that also shows how none of the subsequent games in the series have surpassed it. As someone who is still working on the series, I have mixed feelings about that. Because I haven’t yet surpassed it, I can’t quit. Surprisingly, that simply motivation may be the reason I continue to work on the Zelda series.” As Aounuma explains, he will overseeing the Zelda series (alongside Miyamoto) for a longtime to come. Quite honestly, I can’t imagine a Zelda game without the two of them being involved in the game development, considering how much they have influenced the series.
