Japanese gaming giant Nintendo has opened a new Twitter account specifically for “corporate and investor relations news.” So far, the account has only provided details on its purpose and functionality
While it remains unclear how in-depth the account will go, its content will likely be drawn from the same information and presentations that Nintendo offers on its Corporate website. Contents of that page include in-depth explanations of Nintendo’s recent corporate activity, including the company’s recent purchase of Luigi’s Mansion 3 developer, Next Level Games.
For those looking to stay up-to-date on Nintendo’s corporate activities, the account can be found at @NintendoCoLtd. The company’s first statement on the account sets the tone for what to expect. It also gives a thinly veiled message, warning Nintendo’s most rabid fans that the account is strictly for corporate news and will not respond to messages or inquiries.
We’ve opened this Twitter account to deliver Nintendo Co., Ltd. corporate and Investor Relations news. Financial announcements and other corporate-focused information will be shared on this account. Please note that we will not respond to messages or inquiries.— 任天堂株式会社（企業広報・IR） (@NintendoCoLtd) January 18, 2021
Nintendo hasn’t provided any further information about the account but based on their investor relations page, we’re likely to see a few updates soon. Nintendo’s third fiscal quarter recently ended, which means they will be providing earnings and sales information on their latest products in their yearly Nine Months Earnings Release on February 1st.
While a majority of Nintendo’s earnings releases tend to be dry summaries of hardware and software sales with some statistics and projections, they tend to provide interesting tidbits of information on upcoming games, as well as Nintendo’s strategies and future pursuits. One of the biggest stories to come out of an investor call was Nintendo’s initial commitment to things real-life attractions, like theme parks and restaurants.
