We’re a matter of weeks away from seeing Nintendo software on non-Nintendo devices.
The publisher’s first smartphone game is coming in March, Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima wrote in an editorial for Japanese newspaper Mainichi Shimbun (via industry analyst Serkan Toto). Kimishima wrote this piece to detail his plans for the company over the next 12 months. The president explained that he wants to generate $855 million in profit in “several years” — which means that he is trying to steadily build the company to a point where it is generating four times the profits it did last year. And the app for Android and iOS smart devices is a big part of that. That’s especially true when you look at how Japan is one of the top three markets when it comes to spending on the $30 billion mobile-gaming market. And while most of that Japanese revenue goes to the duopoly of Monster Strike and Puzzle & Dragons, Nintendo could have the clout to grab some of that money.
