Nintendo recently announced 25 billion yen loss for last year, on account of the poor demand for the Wii U console. That determined the company officials to consider switching strategy to a new business model, that may be focused on mobile games.


The Japanese company has iconic characters like Zelda and Mario in its portofolio, but their games can’t sell that well if people aren’t buying their consoles anymore.

    I predicted this 4 years ago for Nintendo. Jumping to the android hand-held market both with software and hardware would be perfect timing.
