There are too many things to take into account. They probably would just keep making consoles.

Stay in handheld and mobile. Sad, Zelda will never again hit the big screen.

If they got out of consoles i think they would create content for sony and microsoft...  Like Zelda, Metroid, Mario ect.

If NX fails to reach WiiU level sales, then I think they will team with Sony. I think that it is almost impossible for them to reach WiiU sales in the home console market ever again. They just don't have the software and services to compete with anyone else in the market.

At this point, I would love to see Japanese companies come together and turn PlayStation into a full on competitor to Windows and Mac. If Nintendo fails on their own again, then this will be the best course for them, and Sony, and the industry.

Stop hate, let others live the life they were given. Everyone has their problems, and no one should have to feel ashamed for the way they were born. Be proud of who you are, encourage others to be proud of themselves. Learn, research, absorb everything around you. Nothing is meaningless, a purpose is placed on everything no matter how you perceive it. Discover how to love, and share that love with everything that you encounter. Help make existence a beautiful thing.

They'll keep making games and keep making money, as always.

Yeah if this flops, i see them switch main focus towards moblie and maybe go 3rd party and make boat loads of money

imagine the gaming world without a big screen zelda..
well i hope they switch to pc if they stop making consoles.. or join sony for exclusive

sry for my bad english - it is not my 1st language

If that happens, they should make a Doom remake for the Wii 4.

Can't wait for The Zelder Scrolls 3: Breath of The Wild Hunt!

If NX fails they'll get out of the console business. Probably keep making handhelds of some sort, but for consoles they'll support other platforms (Playstation, XBox, STEAM, whatever) most likely.

That'll be 3 out of 4 "failed" consoles to some degree (GCN, Wii U, and NX) if that happens and really even the N64 could be seen as a bit of a dud considering it was routed by the Playstation and ceded Nintendo's leadership position in the market. 

So the stakes are high with NX. They can't f*ck it up.
