Nintendo is a company in trouble. Last week, it warned investors to expect a massive loss for this financial year. Its share price tumbled. The loss was no aberration. Since January 2009, Nintendo stock has lost 65 percent of its value. Things are only getting worse: At Kotaku, the writer Stephen Totilo has declared 2014 the company’s toughest year ever. That might be the case.
Robinson Meyer, however, has a solution that will save the company if not the world economy. It is: Nintendo should port old Pokémon games to iOS.
