According to a Nikkei report, Nintendo plans to merge its console and handheld divisions next month. On February 16, the company is prepared to bring 130 console engineers and 150 handheld engineers together under a single roof. Nintendo hopes this move will accelerate development times and make the company's products more competitive with mobile devices. 

The first corporate restructuring since Satoru Iwata took the helm in 2002, also includes the construction of a $340 million facility astride its Kyoto headquarters. The new building should be open sometime later this year.
