Unlike Sony who has had to sell headquarters in order to make ends meet, Nintendo is in the process of building an entirely new headquarters to house their unified console and handheld engineer departments. This new building will replace the old building and has a capacity of 1,500 people and after it’s built, will cost a whopping 16.5 billion yen, which equals out to about $204 million USD. The building has been under construction since 2012, and Nintendo hopes to have it completed in 2014.
A unified console and handheld division may mean we see more compatibility between Nintendo consoles and handhelds in the future.
