Nintendo Switch Receiving “More Unannounced Titles”, Fire Emblem Heroes Excels in Japan

Super Mario Run still has a ways to go.

Posted By | On 27th, Apr. 2017

Nintendo released its earnings report for the conclusion of the previous fiscal year (ending on March 31st), revealing sales for the Switch and its assorted games around the world. However, there was more in store. According to Takeshi Mochizuki, Wall Street Journal’s technology reporter in Tokyo, on Twitter, “Nintendo CEO [Tatsumi Kimishima] said repeatedly there are ‘more unannounced titles’ that should boost Switch itself’s sales. Can’t wait E3! (but I’m not going)”

However, Mochizuki further clarified that there was “No mention of whether he means 1st, 2nd or 3rd.” This is likely in reference to 1st, 2nd and 3rd party studios. It was also noted that Nintendo’s efforts with Fire Emblem Heroes on mobile has paid off. Nintendo earned ¥11.8 billion from Japan and ¥9.3 billion from U.S. for smartphone games & related. Guess Fire Emblem was so huge in Japan!”

However, it seems that Super Mario Run hasn’t done as great as the company hoped. “Nintendo also said a goal of more than 10% of total download pay Mario Run not reached yet.” As an aside, Capcom also had its earnings report and Mochizuki reported that, “CFO said ‘we would release a title for a platform if there’s demand,’ when asked what IP for which platform.” Take that for what you will.
