Nintendo had its annual meeting, and the company’s president Shuntaro Furukawa stated that everyday fans are more demanding with games. Especially with the production of sequels of games such as Mario, Zelda, and Pokemon. He also apologized to them for the inconvenience caused.

In the meeting, Furukawa emphasized that Nintendo gamers want sequels more frequently. That concerns the most popular games, considering the production times are somewhat long. For example, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild 2 was announced in 2019 and has not yet been released. The same should be available this year, but the company stated that it will be playable in 2023.

Nintendo Says it’s Hard to Please Fans

President Furukawa stated the customers’ demand for the speed of game releases. He commented, “In truth, it is difficult to fulfil all the requests we receive for new titles, remakes, or sequels in Nintendo series.” He would culminate his intervention by adding, “That said, we are grateful to our fans and their patience in these matters.”

Another who would weigh in on this matter was executive Shinya Takahashi, who said, “We always take a broad perspective, looking at ways to make new and remake titles enjoyable for as many people as possible.” He added, “Previously, at the 79th Annual General Meeting of Shareholders (held in 2019), we were asked if we had any plans to remake the NES Detective Club series, and it so happened that we were planning a remake in that series.

Takahashi culminated his remarks by saying, “We cannot comment on plans regarding remakes of specific titles, but we are always considering various possibilities in our development efforts so that our customers can enjoy our games.”

As detailed, the executives are aware of the need for speed in the release of games. However, their focus is on the quality of the games, creating fun games for fans.
