Reports say that Nintendo is investing huge money into a new research and development centre in Kyoto’s Minami-ku district. This area is close to their headquarters in Kyoto. Around £100 million have already been spent by Nintendo in securing the land. The building will have new research and development centre dealing in both hardware and software.
Way back in 2000, Nintendo shifted from Higashiyama district of Kyoto to a new building because of the increase in the number of development staff. The old office was renamed as ‘Kyoto Research Centre’. Since that time, the research and development has been continued at both the old and the new offices. It is still not known that when will the construction of the new research centre will begin.
