Nintendo’s Expansion Building Plan Delayed till 2028, Report Claims

Nintendo bought some property in April of last year near its Kyoto, Japan headquarters to put up a new development facility. However, Nikkei claims that the completion of the structure will not occur until “2028 or later,” well past the 2027 deadline that had been previously projected. The expansion plan has caused this holdup.

The original concept called for a skyscraper that was 12 stories tall and 38,000 square metres in size. But now there may be “more than 13 floors” built to house a “long-term increase in development staff,” therefore the original plans have been revised. With this expansion, Nintendo will have more room than they had before, which will allow them to devote more people and resources to making games and other things.

50% More Hire Rate

According to Nikkei, Nintendo hired 130 new graduates in fiscal year 2023, which represents a 50% increase over the previous three years.

The development resources required per piece of software are increasing,” Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa is quoted as stating in the report. We hope to keep hiring at the same pace as in previous years.
