Development continues on
In April, a report from Japanese business journal Nikkei suggested Nintendo's 'Quality of Life' department had been axed. Now, at Nintendo's 79th Shareholders meeting, the company has provided an update on the current state of its 'QoL' initiative, briefly explaining how "development is continuing" and clarifying it is not...
Sleep monitoring device also cancelled
Nintendo's 'Quality of Life' initiative has been dragging on for years now. Last June, there were suggestions the project was dead, after a dramatic fall in the company's share price.

"If it could be released, we’d release it"
Nintendo's Quality of Life initiative was one of Satoru Iwata's personal legacies, an attempt to enrich the lives of consumers and improve their overall well being while simultaneously providing Nintendo with another valuable revenue stream.

Potentially a large, developing market
Satoru Iwata's Investor Briefing this week included a few surprises and, in limited detail, some of Nintendo's key strategies for the coming year and beyond.
