With Miitomo a few years back, Nintendo enterned the mobile game arena. Since then, we’ve seen titles like Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, Super Mario Run, and Fire Emblem Heroes.
Recently, Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima briefly talked about how the company wants to improve their mobile games’ profitability going forward.
Q: How are you looking at the profitability in the business for smartphones?
Kimishima: We’ve published Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp and more, but we still haven’t raised them profit-wise. From here on we want to work on various things like upgrading the insides of them.
How do you feel about Nintendo’s lineup of smartphone games? Personally, I don’t care for mobile titles whatsoever, but its great to see Nintendo succeeding in a largely new market.
