Nintendo is already pursuing non-gaming avenues such as theme parks, movies, manga, and other multimedia. It's been part of their initiative to expand their IP beyond gaming since they started talking about it back in 2015.

As for creating divisions for such avenues, I don't know. Besides mobile, I don't think they have planned to create divisions besides gaming for now until they see some success in their movies and theme parks. Right now, their gaming business is their MAIN business, unlike Sony and Microsoft in which their respective gaming divisions are one of their main businesses and they already have established divisions away from gaming.

Sushi restaurants. I’d be hooked.

But those aren't there own though Sega Has there Own Real theme Park in Sega republic, Nintendo is letting Universal use there IP, Dreamworks is making the movie and other things.

 

Heres One of Sega Republic rides at 6:50 of video . Also heard Sega has more parks I'm unsure if Sega World has its rides . but there was a time I think Sega opened a theme park for 1 year in USA and had chili dogs and sonic hamburgers forgot what it was called though :(

so far theyve dabbled in toys, hanafuda cards, trading cards, figurines, licenced board games, licenced shoes, licenced movies, TV shows, amusement park rides, youtube channels, manga, and smart phone apps, alongside their abandoned QoL series products. its hard to imagine other areas they could expand to



I just want them to make movies and series.



Well, there's a lot of risk involved with adding those types of services/entertainment to a company. And Sony should know that more than anyone. Their Phones TVs, and movies almost did a number on them financially. But they've somewhat recovered. For a time PS was their only profitable division.

But Sony got into TV and audio early so they have brand recognition in terms of those services. And again, with Microsoft their phones...yeah. They suck. Surface devices...aren't necessarily the best on the market, but they're okay.Windows 10 is their bread and butter, so I don't expect Nintendo or Sony to make widely distributed Oses, Nintendo does Apps, and cloud based storage is a possibility for them. Cloud based gaming is also currently being done on Nintendo Switch with Phantasy Star Online 2. I doubt Nintendo is highly interested in making their own cloud based services, but you'd be hard pressed to think they aren't at least toying around with it.

Microsoft is more of an acquisition company than Sony or Nintendo. Rather than competing with a company, they'd rather buy out the best, because they can...they're Microsoft, and add them to their division list. Linkedin, Skype, Mojang, etc. they'd rather just buy them. Hell, Microsoft wanted to buy Nintendo years ago, but Nintendo knew what they had and plans fell through, quick.

I'd argue their current endeavor, Universal Theme Park, is far more exciting than what either is doing in terms of entertainment, well besides PSVR maybe. If the Mario movie goes well, we might see Nintendo form a subsidiary and eventually in house animation studio, but that's just what ifs.

I can see the application now...

Do you smoke? - Yes.

Are you active? - Yes.

Do you leap over lava while avoiding snapping turtles whilst getting fired at to fight flame throwing dinosaurs in hopes to save princesses? -......No.



Insert Coin. Press START. You Died. Continue?

Well, they could acquire themselves an animation studio just to do their movies homemade instead of going with American distributors.

Man, how much would I pay for a Super Smash Bros anime or a Zelda movie with the artstyle of a Ghibli film ....
