Specifically, Fischer wrote,

We believe Nintendo can create very profitable games based on in-game revenue models with the right development team.

The same people who spent hours playing Super MarioDonkey Kong, and Legend of Zelda as children are now a demographic whose engagement on the smartphone is valued by the market at well over $100 billion.

Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has stated that Nintendo just isn’t ready at this moment to bring its games onto the mobile arena.
