Nintendo shares some thoughts on improving dev environment for NX/Desired Demographic

Not much new is mentioned in the article outside of Nintendo’s focus to work smarter with their workforce instead of increasing the size of said workforce. What I gather is an increased cooperation between the engineers/programmers working on development tools and the actual devs working together so everything goes as smooth as possible. Full quote down bellow:

We are paying attention to that. Having said that, it isn’t about drastically increasing the amount of development staff. To be specific, software development teams and teams that create the development environment are thinking about the NX lineup together. For example, a software development team may have a request ‘if we had this library, then development would progress quickly’. Teams creating the development environment respond to that by considering ‘if we prepare an environment like this, then development will go smoothly’, and they actually discuss with development teams and hear their opinions and prioritize those things. We have built a stronger cooperative relationship compared to what is was before and are making efforts so that software can be developed smoothly.

Nintendo also talked slightly about demographics, though it’s basically the same as they’ve been going after for awhile.
