Nintendo Japan Merges Handheld and Console Hardware Teams

wiiu_hardware_01Nintendo will merge its console and handheld development teams at the end of this month, as part of the first-party publisher’s biggest R&D shake-up since the launch of the original DS nine years ago.

Reported by Japanese newspaper Nikkei (via MCV), the two teams will now share their expertise as they look to develop future hardware that will satisfy both its Wii and DS audiences simultaneously.

The merged team will be working out of Nintendo Japan’s new $300 million R&D facility in Kyoto, which has been in construction for the last three years.
