Nintendo only released one new mobile game during the last fiscal year. But during the company’s latest financial results briefing, president Tatsumi Kimishima said that the original plan has not changed.

According to Kimishima, Nintendo is still targeting 2-3 mobile games per year. “What we want is to release applications for smart devices that can be played for a long time, and if we can increase those kinds of titles, then we will build a lineup of titles that consumers will truly enjoy,” Kimishima said.

Kimishima also said that there aren’t any plans for Nintendo, Cygames, and DeNA to all directly collaborate on new mobile titles. However, there is sort of a three-company collaboration based on Cygames and DeNA’s different roles.

With past mobile apps, Nintendo has taken the lead on development. The likes of Super Mario Run, Fire Emblem Heroes, and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp have been handled by its own internal teams while DeNA has handled the back end.

With Dragalia Lost, which has come out of a new partnership with Cygames, the approach has been a bit different. Cygames designed it initially, and Nintendo “got involved at the planning stage and are now developing the game together.”

This information comes from Nintendo’s Tatsumi Kimishima…

For the smart-device business, we will continue the services for existing applications while also releasing new applications in order to increase Nintendo’s presence in this business. The efforts we have made to date have yielded certain responses to our goal of expanding the number of people who have access to Nintendo IP. Even so, we have not reached a satisfactory profit point yet, so our goal is to further expand the scale of this business to develop it into one of the pillars of revenue.

In the past, Nintendo’s mobile efforts have primarily been conducted with DeNA. But now the company is getting involved with another company: Cygames.

Nintendo and Cygames are partnering on the brand new mobile game Dragalia Lost. It’s due out this summer, starting with Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau. There are also plans to launch in North America and Europe.
