The CEO of GungHo Online Entertainment has admitted in a recent interview that he’d love to be able to equal or, even, top Nintendo’s sales. You may know the company from their highly successful Puzzle & Dragons iOS and Android game, which has recently been announced as coming to the Nintendo 3DS, and has amassed 12 million users worldwide since its release in 2012.
Speaking in Tokyo yesterday, GungHo’s CEO Kazuki Morishita, said the following to Bloomberg: “I want to top Nintendo’s sales by the time I retire. I want to make people think whatever GungHo does is fun.”
He also added that he has the utmost respect for Nintendo and hopes that the 3DS version, when released, will bring in mass sales to reach their grand targets: “We are targeting children in a bid to increase lifetime customers. We want to sell at least 1 million units just like any other titles we target.”
It’s a big ask, but with Puzzle & Dragons dubbed as the top-grossing game app for smartphones, and with a staggering 14 million downloads since the title’s launch, could we see such a craze for the Nintendo 3DS version too? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
