Nintendo is in a good place right now. Switchch sells well and provides a solid platform for company gaming, and the firm has other projects – such as movies and theme parks – that help increase revenue stream. However, the Japanese giant is not doing enough to take advantage of its beloved library, according to Webbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter.
Speaking to CNBC, Pachter – who has talked negatively about Nintendo before – says that when the Kyoto broadcaster has accepted the Apple Arcade subscription plan, he can look for millions of dollars for his fans:
One thing they have is that no other major library, more than a million games, and if they can copy Apple Arcade and put a thousand games on it, they'll have 100 million subscribers paying it for $ 5 a month. It doesn't show in the price of their shares because they haven't made any money yet, but if you look at Nintendo going forward, I think that's the answer.
It's not entirely clear from the interview when Pachter mentions a smartphone service or one for Nintendo Switch; as we know, Nintendo is already offering retro gaming options for those who sign up for its Nintendo switchch Online subscription. We think, then, that Pachter is talking about the company bringing its old games to mobile phones (especially given the report section where his ideas came from, focusing solely on the field of smartphones).
While Nintendo is stuck in smartphone games with similar issues Super Super Run
But how can these ancient games play on a device without a physical interface? Where to leave Nintendo Switch Internet, with retro offerings available for that service? Is it possible for such a service to integrate outside of the console market, and not affect Nintendo's core business?
