Nintendo’s New Showcase Strategy

Nintendo Co., Ltd. is a Japanese multinational video game company located in Kyoto Japan. It was founded back in 1889 by Fusajiro Yamauchi, who originally made hanafuda playing cards. Hanafuda cards are a traditional Japanese game with 48 cards divided into 12 suits of four cards.

As the company grew larger, it began expanding and exploring different ventures in the 1960s. The company acquired legal status and Nintendo finally distributed its first-ever console, the Color Tv-Game, in 1977.

As they went on to release more notable titles, like Donkey Kong, Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda, Kirby, Pokémon, and so much more, they became popular worldwide and won many big awards. They have some of the most successful consoles in the video game industry, Game Boy, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo DS, Wii, and the Switch.

Due to having so many things being sold worldwide, Nintendo Co., Ltd has become one of the most wealthiest and valuable companies in the Japanese market.

Nintendo still continues to make many amazing titles and consoles from time to time, and one of the exclusive leaks we got recently tells us that Nintendo might be planning to do small showcases throughout June, rather than doing a bigger direct one.

Jeff Grubb on his live podcast at “GamesBeat Decides” said that while he cannot confirm this, he has heard this from multiple sources, so it is very likely to happen.

Jeff Grubb is a well-known gaming journalist, which means he has a direct link to people working on these games and has very reliable sources as most of his leaks do come true eventually. He also has confirmed some of the recent Silent Hill leaks (there are many, but we hand-picked the best for you).

Now, many may consider this to be an unusual move from Nintendo (or any other company if they were in this situation), but we can assume that Nintendo does things very unusual at times.

There is also a logical explanation behind it, as Nintendo does smaller showcases, they can manage expectations way easier; If they break it into two things, one about Splatoon 3, and the other being Xenoblade 3, they can have more specific segments to the games, and pass the news more smoothly as compared to a rapid-fire of so many titles.

Furthermore, some of the expected titles may not be able to fit in a big direct showcase; like Splatoon 3, Xenoblade 3, Bayonetta 3, Mario Odyssey 2, Metroid Prime 4, BOTW2 surprise shadow drop, New Super Mario RPG, Kid Icarus, the Switch Pro, and the N64 version of Mother 3. So, breaking it into various parts makes a lot of sense, and is possibly a good move by Nintendo.

However, can the fans wait so long for each news? We don’t have a choice but to do so, maybe this way we can have more hype built up for each title, and that might just make the summers even better! What are your thoughts on this? Please share it with us below!
