Nintendo recently released its financial report for the previous fiscal year, and in its supplements, it mentioned future new works, E3 announcements and the current fiscal year plan of the State Switch. However, none of them has any content on 3D, and Kotaku, the overseas media, asked Nintendo about its plans on 3D S. A spokesman for Nintendo responded to Kotaku by e-mail: "We have no new information about the first-party game of Nintendo's 3DS. What we can confirm is that there will be new games from third parties. Nintendo made some comments last year about the future of 3DS. At last year's investor question-and-answer meeting, Nintendo President Daiji Jundao said that the 3DS series handsets had no plans to retire unless the Switch could reach the "one hand" capacity. Then in June last year, Nintendo's current president, Juntaro Guchuan, said Nintendo was exploring various possibilities for a 3DS follow-up. Source: Kotaku
As we waited to destroy the hegemony, a picture of the Avenger Alliance 4 crew came out and sparked a heated debate: American captain Chris Evans and black widow Scarlett Johnson were sitting together, one by one, a Game Boy, with a pair of battlefronts in the middle, two men fighting "Tetris of Russia". 。 Many fans made bold predictions about this picture: Will Avenger Alliance 4 pass through 1989, the day when Game Boy was born? These two Game Boys may be the props used by the crew. Hmm... This author dares not refute. But more players still tend to believe that the two big stars, in addition to the pressure, picked up their favorite games when they were young, showing a pure smile. Not coincidentally, Game Boy went on sale 30 years ago, also in April. You're right. Let's just rub it off.
At an investor meeting held yesterday, Nintendo President Juntaro Guchuan responded positively to rumors of a new Switch host and Sweeth's entry into China, and also answered his own views on Google Stadia services. Welcome new companies to join the game industry, but don't seem very optimistic about the future of streaming services. We welcome new companies to join the game industry with new technologies... Cascading has created a new way to bring games to consumers. If this service really contributes a lot to Nintendo's business, I'll consider it. But for the moment, I don't see a trend of substantial growth in the future. Google's entry is welcome, because the game industry can also grow with new companies and new technologies. I don't think the game industry will start right away.

Nintendo fears that the mechanism of hand-swimming will result in players having to spend a lot of money to play normally, so it requires partners to adjust the drop of props in the game. Hence, Nintendo and Cygames jointly developed and operated the Hand Tour "Lost Dragon Treaty" recently announced the reduction of the number of dragon drills and dragon crystals required for the call, while all players will be compensated by Longhuijing and Awakening Water Drops. Earlier, a Nintendo employee told the Wall Street Journal that the company believed that mobile games should be more like advertisements for host games, rather than making profits mainly through mobile games. In addition, employees of Cyber Agent have also said that Nintendo does not catch a cold about earning a lot of money from a handheld tour. In fact, several of Nintendo's handheld tours could have earned a lot more.
Recently, some netizens found that all the pages on Nintendo's official website including Wii and DS and its related digital game service (WiiWare / DSiWare) have been removed. In addition, Wii U's introduction page was removed and replaced by an error page. However, Wii U games can still be found in Nintendo Game Store, and it is estimated that eShop servers that can survive to Wii U will be shut down. As for when, there is no final conclusion at present. Officials have not yet responded to this, but some analysis suggests that the removal of these pages may be just ordinary website maintenance, after all, the main platform of Nintendo is Switch, removal of unnecessary pages can ensure that the site is superb.
