Nintendo is Going to be Floating on a Cushion of Cash for Years to Come

Were you worrying at all about Nintendo? The headlines have been pretty doom-and-gloom for Nintendo recently. Never fear though, rays of light beam down on the smiling faces of Mario, Link, and Kirby. This snippet and image from Nintendo-Gamer proves that Nintendo will be around for a long, long while.

“Buried in reams of financial data is the revelation that Nintendo have 812.8 billion Yen (£6.7/$10.5 billion) in the bank – enough for it to take a 20 billion Yen loss (£163/$257 million) every year until 2052. Then there’s almost 469 billion Yen (£3.8/$6.0 billion) held in premises, equipment and investments. When that runs out – we’re in the year 2075 by this point – they’ve got some of the most valuable intellectual property in gaming to sell off before the company goes out of business.”
