Abstract:

Nintendo is a major game development company, developing both video game consoles and game software. The case begins with an account of the company's decline in fortunes in the early 2000s.

It then describes Nintendo's decision to create a new console with unique gameplay, instead of going in for a console with advanced graphics and superior processing power. The case describes the features of the Wii and its controller, the Wii Remote, the target market, the marketing efforts, and its strengths vis--vis competing consoles. It ends with a discussion on the challenges and future prospects for Nintendo and its new console.
