Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo: “We Haven’t Been Targeting Children Enough” Update: Beware semantics

 

        During a conference held in Osaka this morning Nintendo’s President Satoru Iwata mentioned that he’s “thinking on how to make the company stand up again” as reported by the Asahi Shinbun.

       Iwata-san also mentioned that one of the problems of the current generation is that the company wasn’t successful enough in attracting the youngest areas of its target customer base:

"We haven’t been targeting children enough."

        Nintendo is expected to give more information on its strategy to increase the efficiency of the business on the medium and long term in a corporate management policy briefing to be held tomorrow.

        Personally I’m not sure if focusing on children even more is the right choice, but an analyst did complain that his son in elementary school never wanted a Wii U. Maybe Iwata-san took his words more seriously than expected.

wtf !? I didn`t see any "HARDCORE" commercial.

agreed the ds was used in schools, haven'theard that for the 3ds yet

That's a joke.

Brace yourselves. Hopefully this doesn't mean cancelling games already in production to shift resources to potential mini game fests.
