Nintendo Believes They Can Exceed DS & Wii Era Profitability Within 3 Years

Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima has told Japanese news publication The Nikkei that he believes that the company has the potential to exceed the Nintendo DS and Wii era profitability within three years. With the upcoming Nintendo NX, the profitability of amiibo, and Nintendo’s venture into the mobile market it could be plausible. It will certainly be interesting to see how things pan out.

      1. I put in doubt the reasoning that people are going to get or pay the microtransactions in their mobile games just because they’re Nintendo. The general public doesn’t download mobile games because a particular studio made them, they download what’s hot at the moment. Either every Nintendo fan backs their games up so the mouth-to-mouth spreads to the most casual spheres of mobile gaming, or I don’t see how they can top the profits of two of the most profitable consoles of all time (all the more so when you add the software profits to the equation).

        1. I beg to differ. A innovative Mario mobile game will sell like crazy regardless of what other mobile game is hot. The Mario IP is the most universally known gaming IP in the world has been for decades so his star power (no pun intended) will really get his game over especially in the vastly populated mobile gaming market. If a Kim Kardashian mobile game can sell extremely well I don’t see why a Mario mobile game or any other mobile game that’s using another Nintendo IP can’t. Do you honestly think a game like Pokémon Go won’t get downloaded because of it’s name? Japanese mobile gamers especially are going to want to play that game in droves. I don’t think the projected sales figures are too far fetched at all

          1. Depends of the game. With the precend we have, Nintendo doesn’t seem interested to bring their most famous franchises to mobile (I’m not sure what the status of Pokémon Go is, since it’s not included in the 5 mobile games released by 2017).

    1. It’s more than mobile, but if all of these hit moderate success then it’s possible:

      Mobile Games/Applications
      Quality of Life Products, and Services
      Theme Parks Attractions with Hollywood Studios
      Amiibo
      IP licensing in the film/series space
      NX

      Bear in mind, 3DS and Wii U are already at a profit.

      1. But I don’t see 3DS and Wii U lasting another 3 years, so he’s obviously talking about their successors or/and the NX. Adding that to the list, that’s a lot of different things that have to come out right for them to surpass their 7th gen profitl.

  1. XD Nintendo is still as delusional as ever. Last year they never met any profit forecast and now they’re saying they can outpace 100 million Wii and 150 million DS profits…

    LMAO at those fucking idiots.

    1. If you hate Nintendo so much then why are you even here? It’s like clicking on a show on tv you think is corny but you still watch it everyday to talk shit about it…smh. I don’t get you at all

    2. YES SAYINGYOUR GOING TO DISRUPTA ENTIRE INDUSTRY IN 205 6 IS DELUSINAL THEN DOINGBJUSTTHAT ITS YOU WHOS DELUSIONAL IM TYPING THIS POST IN A HOUSE I OWN BECAUSE OF BUYING NINTENDO STOCK

  2. IF YOU CANNOT SEE THERE PLAN YOUR EITHER RETARDED OR JUST PLAIN DUALSHOCK RETARDED

    NX core cutting edge consoles are nintendos CORE RED OCEAN business plan…

    mobile is there huge blue ocean casual market IT WILL BE HUGE,then add toys-media-movies-spin off progects-themeparks ETC

    you haveva TOTALLY NEW EXPANDING NINTENDO its caled commnsense LIKE WII OUTSELLING BOTH X360 AND PS3 was to people like me COMMONSENSE…

  3. damn they really want to recapture the wii crowd. it’s fucking sad and laughable. how about they focus on gamers.

  4. Nintendo needs to give us some actual news. They keep making all these vague promises. Pikmin 4 is almost done! Zelda U is still on the way! We have unannounced games releasing between now and Christmas! It all sounds great, but where are the pictures? Where are the release dates? Where are the solid facts, the details, the stuff we really want to know? I’m not saying any of the above info is false, but it baffles me why they are being SO secretive right now when they really ought to be building confidence in their company. In order to cover everything that’s in the dark, the next Direct they are planning is going to have to be huge; like, bigger than their last E3 huge. And with the NX so close, I really don’t know how much longer they can delay showing us Zelda. Everything about Nintendo just seems very, very strange right now, and I’m having a lot of trouble making sense of their actions.

  5. About the NX;
    They promise a totally new gaming experience. Hmmm…. I admit they got me curious. I wonder if the rumors about the handheld/console hybrid are true. That’d be interesting to see. I’m looking forward to an unveiling.

  6. They’ll never exceed Wii profitability. The Wii was cheap to produce so it was easilly profitable and everybody on the planet bought one. The Wii U only just recently outsold the Dreamcast, an obscure console that only had a 2 year life span and barely sold anything.

    The Wii was a miracle. They’ll never do better unless theyre the only ones with a console on the market.

  7. Rogue Master XenoRidley X3

    Unless the NX, theme parks, Nintendo produced/developed/published movies/TV shows come out in the next year and they all hit the mark right, I doubt they’ll be able to surpass the profits of the Wii console, DS handheld, Wii games, & DS games within 3 years.
