Stephen Totilo of Axios Gaming has read all of Nintendo’s 88 page annual report and shared some of the interesting changes in a Twitter thread. You can read the full thread below but here are some highlights.
It seems the total amount of employees under Nintendo has risen from 6,574 to 6,717. This might seem a bit confusing due to the recent closure of the San Francisco Nintendo office, but it seems enough new hires in Japan led to an overall gain.
It seems the average minimum salary has dropped from $88,276 to $81,705, possibly due to all the new hires, but that’s just speculation on our part.
Wages for the higher ups remain unchanged. President Shuntaro Furukawa is paid 318 million yen ($2.3 million) and Shigeru Miyamoto receives 252 million yen ($1.8 million).
Nintendo have also added “labor disputes such as strikes” to a list of company risks. Interestingly however, they also go on to state that labor-management relations have been good. You can read the full quote below.
Labor unions do not exist in the Company but have been formed at some of its consolidated subsidiaries. Labor-management relations have been good, and there are no particular matters to be noted.
Totilo does note that the recent labor complaints against Nintendo came after the reporting period so that may explain why it’s not reflected here.
