Report – Nintendo to slash employee bonuses

Tuesday, 12th June 2012 05:37 GMT By Brenna Hillier

Japanese business broadsheet Nikkei is carrying a report claiming Nintendo will cut summer employee salary bonuses by 20%. The paycut is said to be related to an operating loss of ¥37.3 billion yen in April, attributed to weak 3DS sales and diminishing Wii releases. Executives are also said to have taken a pay cut.

Thanks, GoNintendo.
