Upcoming Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa Wants One Major Blockbuster For Mobile

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.”

  1. FE Heroes is so lit lmao, so if we can get another Nintendo game on mobile if it’s calibur it be chill af. My non-Nintendo friends play FE now because of this game and it’s awesome that they do as they used to barely play any video games.

  2. He means a game that forces people to go out and purchase mobile phones (if they don’t already own any), just to play it. MOBILE PHONES.

    Last time I checked, mobile games were just there casual titles for fun or jerking money out of your pocket beat by beat. Heck, people don’t make a big deal out of it because they conveniently have these devices or there’s enough big budget games on consoles and handheld systems, so you don’t feel like you’re missing out.

    Here, it sounds like he wants something akin to Super Mario Odyssey, ARMS, BotW, or your average Pokemon game on a mobile phones.

  3. Nintendo First Order Commander Quadraxis

    ||Don’t you dare put Metroid on them or else you will see something far beyond that of the FF-Virus…||
