According to its annual report, Nintendo may expand its IP outside of the video game industry.

Nintendo has recently published its report for the fiscal year ending march 2020, which includes a series of details on the plans of the publisher to the future. In addition to demonstrating that its director are paid significantly less than managers in the u.s., the report seems to confirm that Nintendo is interested in pursuing projects that are not linked to video games with its IP.

A section of the report describes the instability of the current of the video game industry, before discussing briefly the possibility of offering experiences Nintendo to a wider audience.

“The business group is trying to provide its own entertainment and a wide range of consumers the most extensive that have never known the IP to Nintendo,” reads the report .


“As a company that creates entertainment to bring smiles on the faces of the people, Nintendo strives to create new forms of entertainment while maintaining a solid corporate structure,” reads a section below. “To expand our business, our utmost attention is to provide users all over the world forms of exciting entertainment that they have never experienced before.”

The “new entertainment” of the above is not new: from the motion controller in the Wii to the hybrid Switch, the company has always been known for its innovation in the realm of video games.

However, it seems that Nintendo is exploring other roads and this is reflected in the recent partnership of the company with LEGO and in the continuous development of the Super Nintendo World.

“We will continue to transform us in a flexible way adapting to the changing times, constantly evaluating the spirit of originality based on the belief that ‘the true value of entertainment lies in its uniqueness’ – and we will continue to provide products and services that surprise and delight people”.

While it is not clear exactly what the company wants to do to expand, it seems that the characters of the Nintendo video games might start to appear in more projects not related to video games.
