DeNA looking to make lots of cash from Nintendo deal

As you know, DeNA has teamed up with Nintendo to release original titles based on the latter's IP on mobile devices and now CEO Isao Moriyasu has said he hopes the company’s deal with Nintendo proves to be lucrative enough to bring in $25 million per month.

It's a whole load of month, with DeNA rumoured to be taking home around 30 percent of any profits from the deal.

Speaking with Reuters, Moriyasu said a financial target has yet to be discussed, but it hopes Nintendo games surpass that of DeNA’s Kaito Royale title, which brought in over ¥3 billion ($25M) per month.

“We want to create games that will be played by hundreds of millions of people,” Moriyasu said. “We want to create multiple hit games rather than aiming to succeed with just one powerful IP element.

“We haven’t talked to Nintendo about targets, but at DeNA, our best-selling game brought in 3 billion yen a month, and we want to surpass that.”

No games have been announced for release yet, although all titles will be created in-house at Nintendo before being distributed by DeNA.

I'm loving DeNA's Final Fantasy Record Keeper game thats just come out - old school FF battles to unlok art work for each of the FF games - just a shame it has the energy concept - 25 'lives' and uses 3 per game you play. but you still get an hour or so out if it before you run out each time :)
