Nintendo Boosts R&D Budget
The newborn DS is getting plenty of support from Momma.
By David Adams
January 12, 2005 - Nintendo will increase funding for Research and
Development and advertising by five billion yen, according to a story
published in Japan's Nikkei Financial Daily.


The company's R&D spending will reach 22 billion yen, up 39% from last year.
Nintendo intends to nurture software development for the Ninendo DS handheld
system, which debuted in Japan and the US last year.

Nintendo's advertising boost is also related to the DS, which in Japan will
see test play in retailers and television commercials featuring a popular
singer.

Nikkei also reports that Nintendo will increase capital spending 76% to four
billion yen, partly to support DS production.
