Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima talked with Kyoto Shimbun in more detail about the company’s mobile plans. He noted that starting in 2017, they would like to bring out two or three mobile games each year. Given the success of Super Mario Run, this is seen as a positive move for them. Speaking of Super Mario Run, he noted the title has thus far achieved 40 million downloads and says that it has met their expectations, but they believe that number could grow to 100 million. He also noted that Nintendo is taking feedback on the game and that it has a high ratio of paying customers. Kimishima stated that smartphones will support the console line of Nintendo and work to expand the player base. The goal being to use the smartphone games to get people talking and look at the Switch when it comes out in March.

This is all good news for Nintendo and it is good to hear that their plan is to use these games to promote their systems.
