Nintendo is best known as a gaming company, but you could soon be seeing the familiar logo on everything from restaurants to healthcare devices.

It probably doesn't mean that Nintendo is planning to port Zelda to PC, but rather that the company may increasingly look at PC software development - probably of the 'boring' kind, given the existing Articles 2 11 and 12 account for "Information processing and providing services using computer networks, etc."

The sleep tracker was put to bed in February, but the proposed additions to the Articles of Incorporation could indicate there are still related plans.

Its much-vaunted step into mobile gaming is underway, with Miitomo out now and Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem planned, while feature length animated movies could be in cinemas by 2019.

Eating establishments could even tie in here, particularly in Japan where game-branded restaurants such as the Final Fantasy-themed Eorzea Café are common.

Despite helping create the modern video game industry, Nintendo itself has rarely defined itself as a games company; rather, it's a company that happens to make games.
