I'm not sure where to put this mods, so move it if it's in the wrong place.

The investor meeting has started and is probably over, but there hasn't been any live leaks/tweets. Everything's been kept secret. There's been some speculation that it's because the past briefings were often mistranslated and Nintendo wanted to avoid that this time. It might be very tight NDAs. We should get info from the stuff they post online and the Q&A, unless everyone has been ninja'd.

Edit: First post is up. https://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/library/events/160203summary/in...
If someone could translate it, that would be great.

Slides are up now.
https://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/library/events/160203/index.html

After a quick translate of the slides on page 3 or 4, there seems to be some Nintendo Account stuff.

Edit 2: Miitomo will have preregistration starting February 17th in 16 countries outside of Japan.

No NX news(it even says it on the first page) but some pretty cool stuff nonetheless. The Miitomo preregistration requires you to have a Nintendo account. Miitomo is still launching mid-March, along with MyNintendo. Everything else is sales analysis.

It says in the English translation that Gold points (which go towards discounts on games purchased digitally on Wii U and 3DS) will be awarded to those who purchase on the eShop. Platinum poins will come from interacting with the smart apps, the eShop and "fulfilling certain requirements" and can go towards other digital content (Home menu themes, DLC?, perks).

Just read through the english translation. I am more hyped for Miitomo and was surprised to see how the Wii U sales have increased compared to last year while 3DS sales have decreased.

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

Anyone think the new nintendo account is going to come with major updates for both 3ds and WII U? To add the whole integration of all the features theyre talking about like rewarding system, cloud based features like save etc?

Or should we expect this with the NX instead?

@DJaa: My Nintendo, at launch will be pretty bare bones. Over time they will add more and more features.

Depends on how much is purely networking and when the cloud save and achievement stuff come out.

eShop is getting an overhaul for sure.

Whelp, no rewards for buying physical copies of games. That's gonna suck loads, since I only use my storage space for digital-exclusive games and buy all other games by the physical version, since I like having the box and disc.

The sooner we get My Nintendo, the better. I feel a sting every time I buy a Nintendo game since Club Nintendo closed — like I'm missing out on something.

It sounsd very integrated, and its been a long while since we had a substantial update. I honestly hope they're gonna update the OS. It needs it

The news isn't over yet, the Q&A is now available but in Japanese. Pay attention to Cheesemeister3k on twitter for the translations..

My guess is that it will be like StreetPass- didn't seem like much when it first came out, but then they started adding games and IMO, turned out pretty cool.

@Zerodactyl

Surely they wouldn't screw over people who prefer buying retail? Maybe the bonuses will just be for playing the game, with no purchase bonuses for either side.

Q6. When Kimishima became President, you said you'd follow the existing strategy, but what would yours be? What'll you delegate? Any goals?

A6. Kimishima: Yes, when I became President, I said that it was my role to continue the strategy established under the prior management. From this point, we need young people to come in as a new generation and give lots of new ideas. It's important to create an organization in which they can thrive. To do so, we've established a system in which many people with potential can play active roles. It may be hard to see from outside the company, but our organization has changed greatly. We also want more game developers to become known, so we'll be sending more out to be public-facing. As for strategy, our hardware/software game business is central, but we're integrating smart device activities into our actual business, and will derive synergies between them. My Nintendo is an important part of that. We want to create connections with customers by having them become My Nintendo members. Also, although QOL wasn't asked about we're not at the stage for the sleep and fatigue [sensor] to become a product, so it won't be released (as a product) by March. We do, however, think that we can do something in the area of QOL, so we will continue to consider expanding into this field.

This is the only interesting question and answer. The other two were ''There are no limits to IPs used for mobile'' and ''We won't talk about NX today''. For the full translation, we have to wait for the official translation by Nintendo.
