In one month, Nintendo has reportedly generated about $4 million in profit from their recently released 3DS StreetPass games.
How much money money did Nintendo invest in these games? My guess is not much Easy money, Nintendo doesn't even need to buy their own eShop space, because they own it.
They said they didn't invest a lot of money or do any heavy marketing.
These were done by mostly outside studios, with the best one, Mii Force, done by Good-Feel, responsible for Kirby's Epic Yarn. The others are done by other small Japan studios like Grezzo. Honestly, it was a brilliant move, they're going to profit from this in a huge way. I, however, can't play Mii Force at the moment, since my play coins are caught up in the racket that is Animal Crossing. :P
Small games like these could probably compete with IOS titles.
While 3DS is printing money. The Wii U is bleeding money. Money transfusion is at the essence right now.
so what. They can use these money for Wii U projects and get more devs and exclusives
They need to work on the Wii U 2 and it needs to be better that xbox1 and ps4.
