* UsefulNotes/NintendoSwitch: Ninth generation (upcoming). Originally codenamed the NX, it was first mentioned by that name in early 2015 by then-president Satoru Iwata. Revealed to the public at large with the new name in late 2016, it was released on March 3, 2017. Taking a cue from the Wii U, the console itself comes in the form of a touchscreen-capable tablet that can be removed from the charging dock and taken on the go, making it the world's first portable home console. The Joy-Con controllers can be slid onto either side of the console, slid into a charging grip, or simply held separately with one in each hand.

In May of 2015, Nintendo made strange headlines by announcing that Creator/{{Universal}} successfully secured the license to use Nintendo properties for its [[Ride/UniversalStudios theme parks]]. A year later, Nintendo and Universal announced it would construct ''Super Nintendo World'', a themed-land with attractions inspired primarily by the ''Mario'' series, for a tentative opening in 2020.

* CloudCuckoolander: "Nintendo marches to the beat of their own drum" is a common saying, because they've always been willing to experiment with ideas that the public tends to find very strange. The DS and Wii show just how profitable this mindset can be, although there have been just as many failures.

Nintendo's placement in the UsefulNotes/ConsoleWars has been all over the place, ranging from unquestionably first (NES and Wii) to barely first (SNES) to only beating out a dying Sega console (N64 and [=GameCube=]) to dead last (Wii U). Regardless of how they place, all of Nintendo's consoles are beloved, and every one of them has a group of standout games that represent the best of their generation, if not the best of all time.

time. Fans and non-fans alike are both aware of the mantra "never count Nintendo out," and though that might not always apply from a commercial standpoint, it always applies from a critical one.



Currently, the UsefulNotes/WiiU is lagging in expectations and sales and is losing badly to its rivals, but the 3DS is crushing the Vita and doing well (if below expectations) despite mobile games taking a significant chunk of the handheld market base. It's too late to completely turn things around (the UsefulNotes/PlayStation4 has sold nearly three times as much as the UsefulNotes/WiiU), but the announcement and release of some big-name franchises and as well as some new franchises for both the Wii U and 3DS are helping quite a bit. Despite this late life boost, the Wii U was shuffled to an early retirement, and Nintendo announced in March 2015 that it was already working on its next console -- the Nintendo Switch, originally codenamed NX, slated for a March 3, 2017 release. VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild will be a launch title alongside it.

It's too late base, and the recently-released UsefulNotes/NintendoSwitch has been experiencing a overwhelmingly strong launch (it's had the most successful launch of any Nintendo system to completely date) after the commercial failure of the UsefulNotes/WiiU, which was beat out pretty badly by the UsefulNotes/PlayStation4. Nintendo might not have been able to turn things around (the UsefulNotes/PlayStation4 has sold nearly three times as much as with the UsefulNotes/WiiU), Wii U, but the announcement Switch is showing a good amount of promise for the future, particularly with the success of games like ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' and release of some big-name franchises and as well as some new franchises for both the Wii U and 3DS are helping quite a bit.

* ShoddyKnockoffProduct: Has a real problem with many unknown companies creating knockoff products of varying quality, from figurines to the consoles themselves (one of which is the page image of the trope in fact) to games. Strangely they often don't get into legal action against these knockoffs. For example countless mobile games for iphones and androids blatantly copy their I.P.s for profit, such as the numerous Franchise/{{Pokemon}} clones which blatantly use their designs and [[SuperSmashBros ''Super Smash Jungle World'']] have yet to be taken down by the company despite them infringing on their rights. Confusing, considering their KnightTemplar tendencies to non-profit fan games as stated above.

** [[PlayingWithATrope Played with]] by the Internet at large. If Nintendo releases its usual products, they're all kiddie stuff. If it goes for darker, edgier content, it's seen as overstepping its comfort zone. If it appeals to the hardcore game, it's going for an audience it's lost. If it appeals to the casual gamer, it's ignoring the essential hardcore crowd.
