This morning in Japan, DeNA held their Earnings Briefing for investors, and had a lot to share. The company, which entered into partnership with Nintendo earlier this year, reported an operating profit of 7.4 billion yen for the quarter.
“Driven by the steady performance of our current core business – mobile games in Japan – our operating profit exceeded the guidance for the second quarter,” said Isao Moriyasu, President and CEO of DeNA. “We look forward to delivering a range of exciting titles, including the first app jointly developed by Nintendo and DeNA, in the remaining months of this fiscal year.”
During the briefing, Moriyasu-san shared a bit more about their partnership with Nintendo, and the resulting smartphone apps.
As you can read above, the plan appears to be quite vast and detailed. In attendance at the briefing was Dr. Serken Toto, and he was wonderful enough to blog and translate some of the even. Take a look at some of what he shared via Twitter.
In addition to Dr. Toto, Takashi Mochizuki, of the Wall Street Journal, also shared some insights from the event, below:
While there is obviously more to learn in the coming months about Miitomo, My Nintendo and the rest of the smartphone apps that will be coming, it is good to get at least this little bit of information, and to know that Nintendo’s partner, DeNA, is doing well financially in their field of profession.
Are you excited to see how well DeNA is doing, financially, in the mobile arena? Will you be checking out Miitomo and/or any of the other mobile apps that Nintendo and DeNA are bringing to the market?
As always, gaming is meant to be fun, so keep gaming!!
