A bit late on this, but this is something Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa said recently.

“Above all else, I base my decisions on the development leader’s way of thinking,” says Furukawa in a rare interview with Western media, and who spoke with TIME mostly through a translator provided by the company. “Nintendo is Nintendo because of our games, characters and IP. So giving our teams the freedom to experiment with new ideas is something I strongly agree with. Expansion can’t happen without the freedom to try something new, and the courage to step into unfamiliar territory.”

So he seems like the type who is willing to let the developers do whatever the hell they want so long as it turns some form of profit. I like this. It shows Nintendo will continue to keep a healthy balance of art, and business. I want no unique ideas like ARMS and Ring Fit Adventure going forward.
