Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima has extremely ambitious plans for the Kyoto based company and who could blame him? Kimishima told Japanese publication Mainichi that he wants to increase Nintendo’s operating profits to 100 billion yen a year. To put that in perspective that’s roughly four times the amount which Nintendo earned in 2015. Kimishima is obviously very confident in Nintendo’s expansion plans as well as the forthcoming NX platform, which will revealed to consumers sometime this year.
In addition to a change in their business model, Kimishima wants to increase Nintendo’s operating profits to the tune of 100 billion yen a year (or around $855 million). To give some context to that figure, that’s close to four times what Nintendo earned last year. So this is definitely an ambitious goal.
