Nintendo issues a follow-up statement on the ESA announcement of console booties



Previously, Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony had announced that game companies would have to publish loot quotas for their consumers. Nintendo has now issued an official follow-up statement regarding this specific situation:

At Nintendo, it is very important to ensure that our customers can make informed decisions when playing our games. As part of our ongoing efforts in this area, Nintendo will require the disclosure of drop rates in Nintendo Switch games that offer random virtual items for purchase, such as loot boxes. This requirement will apply to all new games and includes updates to current games that add loot boxes through in-game purchases.

"We also offer tools such as our Nintendo Switch Parental Controls mobile application, which allows parents to choose what works for their family, including in-game purchase management and setting game time limits."
