US Nintendo is currently investigating allegations of sexual misconduct.

company-wide messagevia kotaku) from President Doug Bowser explained that Nintendo recognizes “media coverage that involves allegations about worker behavior.”

“We have strict policies designed to protect our employees and partners from inappropriate behavior and we expect full compliance with these policies by all who work with or with us,” Bowser said. “We have conducted and will always investigate any allegations we become aware of, and are actively investigating these latest allegations.”

Nintendo has come under fire after allegations that female entrepreneurs are facing a “brother’s house” environment with allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct.

“Nintendo was like a nightmare,” one of the contractors Kotaku said. “It’s sad because I love Nintendo; I grew up with Nintendo. I was so excited to join Nintendo when I first got there, and thought I was going somewhere. My supervisors told me I was doing well.”

Another claimed that “[product testing] It really felt like a frat house sometimes.”

They reportedly encountered jokes about gender stereotypes and female characters wearing their skirts. She claims that when she complained, she was simply told she had to be “strict enough” to work on product testing.

Another tester said, “I had people act in a way that made me feel uncomfortable, and then they told me not to go to HR about this because I would be ‘misinterpreting’, making me feel guilty about my discomfort.” “I’ve never felt so immersed in things or respected.”

Back in November last year, Nintendo condemned the allegations of sexual harassment at Activision Blizzard and called the reports “disturbing.”

“With all of you, I have been following the latest developments with Activision Blizzard and the ongoing reports of sexual harassment and toxicity at the company,” Bowser said at the time. I find these accounts disturbing and disturbing. It goes against my own as well as Nintendo’s beliefs, values, and policies.”
