Looks like Japan is thoroughly Nintendo country.
And while Japan is a smaller market than the Americas or Europe, it is the most important market to dominate for a number of reasons. First, Eastern Asia is home to most of the game development teams world. second, 17 of the top 25 largest video game publishers are located in Eastern Asia, with Japan being the core of the industry there and home to most large Asian publishers. Third, Japanese devs in particular have a stronger tendency to create exclusive software than any other country isn’t he world.
While the impact will take a while to be felt, it will in the coming years.
I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.
