According to a report today form Polygon, senior research analyst of games and IT at Macquarie Securities David Gibson said Nintendo won’t be releasing games to mobile platforms any time soon.
Gibson, meeting with Nintendo after its sixth-month financial report this week, said the gaming giant would promote games via smartphones, but won’t ever launch them for mobile devices.
In the financial report, Nintendo revealed they posted an operating loss of $187 million in the sixth-month period ending on Sept. 30.
Despite the overall operating loss, sales of the Wii U increased by 87 percent from last quarter, pushing out more 300,000 from July through September and 460,000 in the last six months.
One prominent Nintendo investor, however, said the Wii U’s performance is still hurting profits for the company.
“The Wii U hardware still has a negative impact on Nintendo’s profits,” the investor said.
However, according to Gibson, Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata said he wasn’t pessimistic about the company’s future, reiterating they will not cut staff to cut costs.
