Doug Bowser says their release schedule was “somewhat” influenced by the pandemic, especially “during the early days” – My Nintendo News

Polygon’s interview with Nintendo’s US President Doug Bowser contained a lot of long, vague answers, sometimes without answers, but he wasn’t much discussed in Nintendo’s America. I talked about the topic. They talked about how the ongoing coronavirus pandemic affected their release schedule.

Nintendo’s Japanese comments were usually the same at financial briefings. “There is no delay so far, but we are monitoring the situation because it can occur.” In fact, according to Doug Bowser, there were some delays in the “especially early days” of the pandemic. His comments on this issue can be seen in full below.

Especially in the early days, when it comes to organizing what’s happening at retailers, how consumers consume content in terms of media content, and where to get news and entertainment. Received. Because it forces us to potentially pivot some of the marketing aspects.

Obviously, my responsibility lies with the Nintendo of America. Nintendo is a sales and marketing function. We worked closely with the Japanese parent company to understand the potential impact on the development cycle and whether it would change on all release schedules. Keeping the momentum we’ve seen so far in response to seeing it and understanding which parts of the evergreen catalog can be inserted and driven, as the dates may have changed slightly. I’m trying to continue. In the period.
