Nintendo Phuten in Taiwan will be closed by end of May, with most employees leaving by the end of this month

All after-sales services will remain operational though, and every thing will be handled by Nintendo HK

I wonder what the end goal of this move is.

Maybe Nintendo is gearing up for something more substantial in mainland China?

Maybe Nintendo wants to consolidate their distribution-related subsidiaries and this is part of a greater restructuring effort?

Who knows.

That's no good. So this was solely their Taiwanese division, like NoA is to the States?

Probably just cutting costs. I've seen videogames sold in other SE Asian countries where Nintendo (or Sony) don't have an official presence; they're usually just imported from HK.

Didn't even know that existed. Couldn't have been that big.

Having Nintendo HK handle Taiwan is probably a good thing.

Still, always sad to see people lose their jobs.
