    Recently Nintendo has been rolling out new information on it's company. The Japanese company has tipped us with some new information in it's fiscal report that it might start making computer software and medical devices as well as restaurants. Would you like a red and white health device a Italian restaurant with a mustached plumber and a possible Kirby Returns to Dreamland HD running on your pc? Let me know below!

    I mean... Sounds far fetched.

    BUT if their gaming side starts to flop it'd be nice to have something else to rely on I guess?
    They've been making some really stubborn decisions just like Sega not releasing PSO2 to the West.

    It's Nintendo we're talking about. We all thought mobile was farfetched and looked what happened.

    Yeah, there is no doubt that's right and in my opinion Miitomo has potential but they left it so bare minimum that it's more of a chore IMO to play/use than to enjoy with friends or whoever.

    Yeah that's true however it isn't really a game anyway. I feel like every social media app is a chore xD Hopefully FE: Mobile and Animal crossing mobile will be fun to play.

    I would love to have Nintendo games in my steam collection, especially if it's super Mario galaxy, sunshine or 3D Land in HD

    If they made Super Mario Galaxy for the PC and made it so you could stream to PC I would finally have a reason to build a gaming pc.

    While it would be nice to have Nintendo games on PC, how many do you actually think would play well with a keyboard? Might be troublesome to play Nintendo games with a keyboard (Unless they redesign the entire control scheme)

    Yeah they could have added mini games like from Mario Party that added some fun factor to the app and instead put a crappy Miitomo Drop luck game that takes ticket/coins for clothing. :/

    If they butcher the others coming out like Animal Crossing that will just devastate me.

    LET'S GET RIGHT INTO THE NEWS!

    I could see Legend of Zelda working as a PC game but for platformers? Not entirely sure at that.

    If this does end up to be true, I hope they don't make their own exclusive client like Uplay or Origin. I prefer having games at my Steam Library tyvm

    I wish they made it possible to decorate your room man. I would spend hours playing and yeah to be honest mini games would be a excellent feature! I would love to play the leaf racing games from Mario Party DS. I played that for hours.

    Well... I know there is already a way to play Splatoon with a keyboard so it might work out. I just have trouble picturing Mario kart on a Keyboard. Maybe they will add Pro controller support or something.

    If they do add controller support, I hope they make it so that any controller could be used. I wouldn't want to buy a special Ninty controller just to play their game with a controller.

    Yeah it may sound like shit but even if they would have added mini games it would have given another reason to game tickets hell, even coins. Now I blow them on Miitomo Drop out of rage when my stupid Mii doesn't land on a platform lol.

    Room decoration would have been nice and I honestly expected it when it first came out and was super disappointed. I was like wow, you literally released garbage. :/

    Well if they would make a very good controller for Computer and port all their good games as HD Rerelease for PC this would be much better than another Wii or whatever XD
    So instead of inventing the tire new again why not use what is available and make it better ...
    everyone has a Computer nowadays so bring the games and make a Controller

    Medical devices? Perhaps they're going to design something to analyse a sample of your Wii...

    Restaurants? This one is hard to imagine being a good thing.
    Mario and Luigi serving Italian food? I wonder where this would actually be successful.
    Introducing PC software? Maybe...
    Could damage NX sales if they release the same games for both PC and NX.
    Software could involve other stuff though.
    Medical Devices? This one is really weird. A life support machine that also lets the person in the coma play games? What else could they do....
