Anything that is experimental might be a success or a flop depending on its popularity. Nintendo, now called an entertainment company, is venturing into new grounds in the hopes to reinvigorate the company’s stale sales performance.
They experimented with new things. In the fourth quarter of 2015, they have released a new social media game app called the Nintendo Miitomo.
This game is more like a Sims game in that you will create your virtual avatar, a Mii, and customize its looks to your liking.
You will then be able to go around town and meet new people. You can also talk to these people and you will then have the freedom to socialize to your heart’s content.
Unfortunately, Nintendo’s first ever mobile phone app is in a steady decline since its release.
The premise of the game is for you to create your own character and socialize with as many people as you’d like.
But, without a lot of people playing the game, people will not be enticed to play the game anymore, thus explaining the game’s steady decline.
Now, why is this happening to the game? Critics speculate that during its launch, people were curious about Nintendo’s first venture into the mobile phone application space.
People want to try out the game because of its promise of bringing people together from around the world.
And rightfully so, during the first months of the game, the game was packed with a lot of people. But those people are just in there due to curiosity and not because the game is really exciting to play.
It is also worthy to note that the nature of the game is also the one to blame here. In the first few days, you will be very busy customizing your avatar. The appeal will probably last a few weeks but that’s about it.
And now that the game is at a steady decline with only a few players playing it, it will be as no surprise when the game will finally be canceled because of its low population density.
Does this mean that Nintendo flopped again with their new venture? Well, the game is indeed on a steady decline but it doesn’t mean that they have flopped big time.
When Tatsumi Kimishima took the helm as the new president of the company, he said that there will be a lot of new things to look out for.
One of the things he promised was that the Miitomo is not the only app they will be releasing in the App stores. In fact, a lot of Nintendo App developers are already in the works creating new mobile phone games as we speak.
Furthermore, the news of the company releasing a new console in the form of the Nintendo NX is also enticing. The Nintendo NX is one of the most highly anticipated consoles to date and it will be releasing in March 2017.
Even though Nintendo’s first mobile phone game, Miitomo, is suffering a steady decline, the company still has high hopes for the future.
