[Nintendo Everything Podcast] – episode #77 – Evolving Nintendo Switch games and desperate weirdos
Posted on 2 years ago by Oni Dino(@Oni_Dino) in Podcast | 0 comments
Hello my lovely listeners-as-a-service! This week on Nintendo Everything Podcast, we’re bringing up the topic that Galen dubs, “evolving games”. These are games like Splatoon 2 and Super Mario Maker 2 that are back-loaded with post-launch content. Is this new release and marketing strategy to keep a game topical good or bad? Why is it done? Is this a model that can sustain itself for years to come? We also have more Final Fantasy VII Remake impressions now that Oni Dino has beaten the game, and we go hypothetical in our listener mail segment with dream studios working on dream IPs.
If you’re enjoying NEP, please consider giving us a 5 star review on Apple Podcasts, and share us with a friend. It’s incredibly helpful in getting us exposed to new listeners through algorithms, so we would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you for listening!

Nintendo Account website updated, new features added (overview of purchases, friend suggestions, more)
Posted on 5 years ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in General Nintendo, News | 15 Comments
The Nintendo Account website got a minor facelift and some new features today in preparation for the launch of the Nintendo Switch next week. Generally, the website looks a lot cleaner now with less settings and features stuck together in one category.
Some of the new & updated features include:
- You can now change the language of the Nintendo Account website without having to change your country of residence in the settings
- Parental Controls: create an account with restricted features for a child, such as a spending limit and age-based purchase restrictions on the eShop
- Account Activity: See a list of purchases associated with your account. If you linked your NNID with your Nintendo Account, your digital 3DS and Wii U games will show up here.
- Friend Suggestions: This feature lets you connect with friends across multiple Nintendo Account linked services by providing friend recommendations in one service based on your existing friends in another service. This currently only works with Nintendo’s mobile games, but not with the Wii U and 3DS.
Two new missions added to My Nintendo
Posted on 6 years ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in General Nintendo, News | 0 comments
Two new missions, i.e. new ways to earn points have been added to My Nintendo today. To complete the missions, your Nintendo Account need to be set to receive promotional e-mails from Nintendo. Doing so gets you a one-time reward of 30 Platinum Points. Keeping the setting gets you an additional 10 Platinum Points each month.
Kimishima on Miitomo stats and revenue, in-app purchases on mobile, Nintendo Accounts
Posted on 6 years ago by Brian(@NE_Brian) in Mobile, News | 6 Comments
Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima was hesitant to share stats pertaining to Miitomo during the company’s investors briefing last week. However, he did reveal that the app had “a slightly higher ratio of women at the beginning,” and noted that the revenue impact “is negligible for the fiscal year ended 2016” since it’s just starting out. He expects that in-app revenue is in line with expectations.
Kimishima went on to talk about in-app purchases on mobile as well as Nintendo Accounts (plus My Nintendo). You can read up on his full comments below.
I heard that there are over 10 million Miitomo users worldwide. I would like to know the attributes of those users, the number of DAUs (daily active users), as well as how much Miitomo is contributing to earnings. Have there already been positive effects on existing business from its connection with the Nintendo Account system? For applications to be released in the future, are you going to increase the game element and seek to increase revenue from in-app purchases?
The over 10 million users are very balanced in terms of gender. There was a slightly higher ratio of women at the beginning. We will not be releasing statistical data such as DAU numbers. As you are well aware, all kinds of ranking information exists for smart device applications, so I will refer you to those. If you look at them and estimate the in-app purchase revenue, I think it will not be too far off from reality.
The revenue impact of Miitomo is negligible for the fiscal year ended 2016, as we have only just started. The Miitomo download numbers are growing right now, so I think the in-app purchase revenue is also growing more or less as expected.

It’s an entirely possible to delete a Nintendo Account. Doing so will result in the major loss of information, however.
When attempting to ditch a Nintendo Account, Nintendo warns users that they’ll lose a whole bunch of data. This includes your “mission status”, points, and rewards with My Nintendo, digital content purchased/required that is linked to your Nintendo Account, save/user data of apps linked, and special offers.

Birthday month discounts coming to Nintendo Account in Japan
Posted on 7 years ago by Matt(@OnePunchMaz) in General Nintendo, News | 7 Comments
Nintendo Account is, as the name implies, Nintendo’s new, unified account system. Announced for early this year in the West, the program had somewhat of a surprise launch in Japan in December. Personalized discounts were one of Nintendo Account’s announced features – however, so far users with Japanese accounts were only able to take advantage of global discounts, not much different to sales on the eShop.
However, that is changing with a new feature coming this month. Users who link their Nintendo Network ID to their Nintendo Account before the 24th of their respective birthday month and opt in to receive promotional e-mails from Nintendo will receive special discounts on the 24th of their birthday month. This means that we should learn what this month’s discounts are on January 24th.
Right now we don’t know if birthday month discounts will also be available to European and North American users once Nintendo Account launches there. Nintendo is likely to share more details on the system’s Western launch in the coming weeks.
