You would think that companies who develop games for mobile would want to take advantage of gamers and try to squeeze as much money out of them as possible. That seems to be what many developers have successfully done over the years, making millions upon millions of dollars.

Oddly enough that doesn’t seem to be what Nintendo wants. According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, it seems that Nintendo is apparently asking for developers of its mobile games to try and make it so that gamers won’t need to spend excessive amounts of money on its game.

This was revealed by an agent for CyberAgent, the developer behind the mobile Dragalia Lost title. “Nintendo is not interested in making a large amount of revenue from a single smartphone game. If we managed the game alone, we would have made a lot more.” Nintendo later confirmed this to be true in statement that reads, “We discuss various things, not just limited to payments, to deliver high-quality fun to consumers.”

According to the report, apparently Nintendo’s interest in mobile is to create games that expose gamers to its various characters and franchises in hopes it will encourage them to buy their consoles and their games. It is an interesting approach and we’ll have to see how it pays off for the company in the long run.
