Nintendo Financial Failure

Nintendo have just launched their very first smart phone title with its own original characters – don’t expect to find Mario or Luigi here.

However this venture hasn’t gotten off to a very good start.

“Dragalia Lost” was released last week and in the first 5 days of its life generated less than all of the previous Nintendo smartphone titles. Only $3 million in revenue across Japan and the US.

It seems that Nintendo may be dependant on its popular all star characters such as Kirby, Donkey Kong, Link etc to generate a healthy financial flow.

Dragalia Lost is currently only available across the Japanese and US regions however a worldwide availability is expected. Perhaps this restriction has lead to such a disappointing return.

What do you think, is it time Nintendo pushed to create more classic characters that we will all grow to love? Or stick to what they do best?
