Nintendo wants its mobile games to echo the incredible success of Pokémon GO

In a recent interview with Nikkei, Nintendo’s new president, Shuntaro Furukawa, said that he wants to grow the company’s mobile games output into a 100 billion yen ($910 billion USD) business, and hopes to echo the incredible and ongoing success of Niantic’s Pokémon GO. “From what I can see, smartphone games are the ones I want to expand the most,” he told the outlet, adding that, “The idea that something will emerge that transforms into something big, in the same manner as game consoles, is the defining motive of the Nintendo business.”
