With Miitomo a few years back, Nintendo enterned the mobile game arena. Since then, we’ve seen titles like Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, Super Mario Run, and Fire Emblem Heroes.

Recently, Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima briefly talked about how the company wants to improve their mobile games’ profitability going forward.

QHow are you looking at the profitability in the business for smartphones?

Kimishima: We’ve published Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp and more, but we still haven’t raised them profit-wise. From here on we want to work on various things like upgrading the insides of them.

How do you feel about Nintendo’s lineup of smartphone games? Personally, I don’t care for mobile titles whatsoever, but its great to see Nintendo succeeding in a largely new market.
