Nintendo: No quake injuries, business continues

Nintendo released a statement about the quake’s effects on its headquarters in Kyoto.

The catastrophe won’t affect business operations, apparently including shipments of the upcoming 3DS, which goes on sale March 27 in the U.S.

The statement:

We appreciate the concern shown in the aftermath of the recent disaster in Japan. We can confirm that at this time it appears that no one from Nintendo in Japan was injured and there was no apparent structural damage to our company headquarters in Kyoto. Business operations, including future product shipments, have not been affected. Our thoughts and best wishes are with everyone who has friends and family members who may have been affected by the earthquake or tsunami.
