According to The Seattle Times, Nintendo is looking to expand its U.S. headquarters in Redmond, WA to the tune of some 550,000 square feet of building area. The major decision at this point appears to be how to handle the already troublesome traffic problems that form "near Nintendo, its neighbor Microsoft, and throughout the Overlake neighborhood."

A City Council vote is expected by February on an agreement between Nintendo and Redmond "that will guide that development over the next 10 years and determine how it will ease the traffic impacts of that growth, as well as impacts on the environment and the surrounding community."

No matter which way you slice it, expansion means they're doing something right.
