What are you hoping for going forward from the collaboration with LINE Corporation, beyond Dr. Mario World? By collaborating with LINE, are you signaling a particular interest in developing games for younger segments of the population, such as teens?

Furukawa: I believe everyone is familiar with LINE, which is virtually synonymous with “messaging application” in Japan. We believe that the real-life social graph (connections between friends via the Internet) cultivated by LINE, as well as the technologies supporting it, will be a very strong platform for consumers to enjoy our game applications, which is why we have formed this collaboration. And Dr. Mario World is a puzzle game, so we hope many people will enjoy it, regardless of gender or age.
