10% Of DeNA’s Staff Are Working On Nintendo Titles

In a recent briefing with the company’s investors, DeNA CEO Isao Moriyasu said the company currently has around 100 people “directly participating” in the Nintendo Alliance. This is out of a total Game & Entertainment Business Unit team of more than 1,000. Moriyasu also confirmed that the partnership with Nintendo remains a “high priority” and that DeNA would increase the work force if necessary.

DeNA also shared how the company was performing. In the fiscal year that ended March 31, 2017, DeNA’s games business earned them a total of ¥101.4 billion ($915 million) which is down 7.5% from the year previous. The segment’s profits rose 9% to ¥28.3 billion ($255 million).

Although no solid release date has been confirmed, we can expect to see an Animal Crossing mobile game by the end of this year.
