Q & A

Community Relations

What is Nintendo's view on contributing to the community?

We are committed to being a corporate citizen that is valued by society and recognized for our unique contributions.


In addition to those mentioned in the CSR Report, what other kinds of community support/activities does Nintendo engage in?

We engage in various activities that are based on unique policies relevant to the characteristics of each local community.

Nintendo of Europe supports numerous charitable organizations and educational institutions, and in particular, proactively contributes to various special projects that support children.

For example, in 2020, Nintendo of Europe (Germany) purchased 34 laptops to support low-income families during the COVID-19 pandemic and donated them to two charitable organizations in Frankfurt. These organizations will use the laptops to help families who do not have a computer at home. In addition, Nintendo of Europe (Germany) donated six Nintendo Switch consoles and games to a hospital in Goslar to help support patients with dementia. This project also provides physical and mental health care for relatives, caregivers and volunteers. Nintendo of Europe (Germany) also held a charity sale during our relocation in 2020 to sell used office equipment. The proceeds were donated to refugees in Moria, Lesbos in Greece.

In 2020, Nintendo Ibérica (Spain) was able to help fulfill the wish of a child from Malaga who wanted to meet Mario and is fighting an oncological disease. Medical treatment and the pandemic made it impossible to meet Mario in person, but we were able to bring a smile to his face with a new video of Mario we recorded.

In addition to its continued support for the Starlight Children's Foundation, Nintendo Australia also offers work experience programs for year-10 schoolchildren (age 15 - 16) to help them in making career choices.

In fiscal year 2019, Nintendo Australia once again provided software and video game systems to a library playroom as a way to help families deepen communication while playing games together.
