Nintendo had already shared their will to extend the life of their releases to the Nintendo Switch, keeping them alive for a longer time with the help of new content.
Whether through free updates or paid content, Nintendo wants to keep your games fresh and exciting for a long time.
This is a bet that has demonstrated throughout the last releases and second shared by Shuntaro Furukawa, the current president of Nintendo so that it will continue.
In the latest presentation with investors, the Nintendo president said the company would continue to support its games for the Nintendo Switch so that they can stay long on the best-selling charts.
“We will continue our established efforts to keep consumers playing the software long after it was released,” said Furukawa.
“For example, we’ve released a great update for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate that adds Stage Builder and the ability to edit and share gameplay videos, while we’ve released the first set of paid additional content. Mario Tennis Aces released in June of the year past, but we continue to host tournaments and distribute new characters, and a great free update has added a new mode this month. “
“By launching online content and organizing events that create excitement around a game, we’re making the game fresh for consumers and encouraging them to continue playing.”
This bet is bearing fruit, and it’s easy to see this by looking at the sales charts, where games like Zelda: Breath of the Wild or Mario Kart 8 Deluxe continues to make their presence even two years after launch.
