Usually, a game publisher will normally try to stay engaged, communicating with players through consulting, support departments or through some discussion forum. However, despite so many communication channels, sometimes some players’ suggestions are often ignored by the publisher. But for Nintendo fans, they have more ways to get the development team to listen to them. Typically, the gamer guy below.
Accordingly, at Nintendo’s recent shareholder meeting, an extremely rare case happened when it was interrupted by a gamer guy, who also bought Nintendo shares in the past. It is known that not long ago, he spent $ 3,500 (about more than 82 million VND) to buy shares of this famous game company. And during the meeting, he surprised Nintendo president Shunturo Furukawa when he constantly asked questions about Slaptoon 3 – the game that surpassed Pokemon to become the best-selling game in Japan in 2022. Perhaps, the content of the question is mainly directed at why male characters are disadvantaged compared to female characters in the lack of hairstyle customization options. A very small problem, but no one thought this guy would spend a lot of money just to have the opportunity to question the president of Nintendo about this issue.
Of course, President Furukawa couldn’t give a satisfactory answer, but could only thank him for his interest in the company’s game. After sharing, he said that he had sent letters to Nintendo many times but did not notice any changes after that. Feeling disgruntled, the guy saved and spent a large amount of money to buy Nintendo shares for the sole purpose, was invited to the shareholder meeting and voiced his heart. The gamer himself then went online, using his personal page to state a series of examples and comparisons showing how the male characters in Slaptoon 3 are disadvantaged.
It is also unknown whether after this event, male characters in Slaptoon 3 will have more options in customizing their hairstyles. However, the extremely cool way of contributing ideas of the other gamer is attracting a lot of attention.
