“By welcoming Shiver’s experienced and accomplished development team, Nintendo aims to secure high-level resources to port and develop software titles. Going forward, even after becoming part of the Nintendo corporation, Shiver’s focus will remain the same, continuing commissions for ports and software development for multiple platforms including the Nintendo Switch will be completed pending the fulfillment of all conditions ended according to relevant practice.”

According to a footnote, this acquisition will have only a “minor effect” on Nintendo’s results for the current fiscal year.
