If you want to know just how much money DeNA is hoping to make through their partnership with Nintendo they’re more than eager to tell you. According to CEO Isao Moriyusa the company hopes to make more than $25 million a month. Mr. Moriyusa said:
“We haven’t talked to Nintendo about targets, but at DeNA, our best-selling game brought in 3 billion yen a month. We want to surpass that.”
Their best-selling game was Kaito Royale which earned them over 3 billion yen ($25 million). Having characters from Nintendo’s best-selling franchises pretty much guarantees that, at least the first time out. If the games continue to be quality titles that people are interested in that figure isn’t out of the realm of possibility.
DeNA and Nintendo are planning to release their first game from this partnership later this year. No details about the game, pricing structure and which franchise it will be from have been announced.
