Nintendo building 40,000 square-meter R&D facility for new consoles

Who’s ready for a new Nintendo console?!

Well, I can’t promise you I know when one is coming, or how much it will cost, or if it will have that mystical “HD” ability the kids all love these days. Actually, I can’t really promise you anything. However, I can give you a good idea of where it will probably be researched, developed and built: Kyoto!

The new building will cost about $141 million, mere pennies for the current overlord of video games. Nintendo told Nikkei the 40,000 square-meter facility will be “devoted to creating new game consoles as well as software for the Wii and DS.”

Free game of their choice to the first Infendo Ninja who sneaks into this new facility, snaps pics, and gets out alive.
