Nintendo continues to push its Switch hybrid console and its party-pleaser game, Arms. And you're seeing this all over your TV.
It seems like Sony pushes at the beginning of the year, nintendo middle of the year, and microsoft at the end of the year.
True but Nintendo is being more aggressive with marketing with the Switch and it's games than they were with the WiiU which is a great thing especially in these months leading up to be the beginning of holiday sales.
nintendo never spent this type of money before, its because apps giving them extra funds without dipping in their pockets, look at fire emblem for mobile in 2 days it made 5 million dollars
Super mario run was downloaded 150 million times with less than 10 percent paying for it, last I remember when it was at 120 million downloads it was at 6 percent paid for it.....so if 6 percent paid out of 150 million
6% of 150000000= 9,000,000
that means 9,000,000 people paid for the game, if the game is 10 dollars, that is 90 million in cash
and mind you fire emblem made the 5 million all the way in February when it came out, so it probably bring in a lot because nintendo said in their recent meeting that Fire Emblem made more revenue than Super Mario Run, and in Japan it stays in the top 10, not sure about other countries and america.
Then you have Switch selling at a profit, same with 3ds, and this is why Nintendo stock going up and up and why Nintendo market value ahead of Sony right now
........they are swimming in cash
so I have a feeling with the apps and future apps coming, animal crossing and etc......they will keep using those funds to fund their advertisement
Nintendo definitely seems like they are on their A-Game right now, hopefully they can carry that momentum like they did with the Wii. I hope to get a switch when Super Mario Odyssey comes out. As you can tell by my name, I am a huge Mario fan. :)
