Nintendo to partner with Tencent to promote game consoles in China

Asian Tech Press (June 30) -- Japan's Nintendo on Wednesday said it will join forces with Chinese social and gaming giant Tencent Holdings Ltd. to promote its game consoles in China.

Nintendo said it has stepped up security measures after the leak of the source code of classic games such as Super Mario Kart, and talked about the promotion in the Chinese console market.

Regarding the Chinese market, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa said at the 82nd annual general meeting of shareholders on Wednesday that China has a large market for PC and mobile games, but not as large for game consoles.

He stressed, "Together with Tencent, We want to continue promoting them. We are working with experts on information leaks. We have also introduced information security management."
