Nintendo to merge console and portable development teams

Changes are afoot at Nintendo, with the company to merge its console and handheld development teams next month.

Such a major organisational change is the first that Nintendo have made in nearly nine years, Nikkei report.

They will work from the Kyoto-based research and development centre, that Nintendo initially invested £127 million into building way back in July 2011.

Both teams will collaborate to share technology and expertise, continuing to steer a path for Nintendo’s future.
