  1. Our objective is always the same

    We will produce new games for new people who wants to know about the Nintendo characters

    With these moves, we can purify the people who are infected by the Xvirus. I hope this will happen soon.

  2. As long as these new developers are guys that make mobile games & not wasting developers that could make home console games instead, I’m okay with this.

    1. That appears to be the case. Use mobile as secondary revenue, but also as a marketing tool for the main console (Switch/3DS) line up, which continues to be strong. Good strategy, glad they see it this way and expanding the amount of developers will not only speed up production, but give us a more diverse line up.
