Nintendo hasn’t been shy about saying that their mobile offerings haven’t generated as much cash as they had expected. In a recent interview with The Nikkei, upcoming Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa says he wants one major blockbuster to change their fortunes in that area. It’s not clear what game he’s alluding too, but they clearly have something in the works that they are confident will generate lots of cash.
“In an interview with Japanese business daily Nikkei, Nintendo’s new president Furukawa says he wants his company to grow its smartphone gaming business to 100 billion yen ($911 billion) – with one blockbuster. Last fiscal, that business generated less than 40% of that number.”
