Nintendo wants to make Yoshi anime and more 

The following is from Nintendo’s 77th Annual General Meeting of Shareholders earlier today. Although there were few notes of interest, we’ll post anything noteworthy from the official translation at a later date. The below was kindly translated by Alex Aniel who attended the Shareholders meeting.

● President Tatsumi Kimishima stated in a question involving Kirby anime and others: “We’ll look into investing toward film” with Shigeru Miyamoto adding “We want to make anime for Pikmin, Star Fox, Yoshi, etc. and distribute it freely, or integrate into games.” 

● Tatsumi Kimishima also said regarding Nintendo 3DS: “3DS will pass 70 million this fiscal year and we want to continue providing software for it.” 

● Satoshi Yamato on Virtual Console who said they are: “Looking at ways to develop Virtual Console. Classic Mini is one form of Virtual Console. We can also sell physical. Looking to make it as big as we can.”

● And finally: Genyo Takeda has now officially retired as a full-time employee of Nintendo Co., Ltd.
