The Wii U’s Virtual Console will be the company’s new console and it will focus on improving[4] its users’ quality of life. Company CEO Satoru Iwata told investors that he wants to improve the quality of life of Nintendo customers over the next 10 years. He said that he wants to improve people’s health first, their learning second and other non-gaming related areas third.

Among the company’s plans for the new Nintendo console is Mario Kart 8 which will be released in May. NTDOY stock is down 2.75% Friday.
