Analysts say weaker yen helped Nintendo, expect big things from mobile

Makoto Kikuchi, chief executive officer of Myojo Asset Management Co.

“The impact from the yen was even more than expected, helping the company beat market consensus. They need to move quickly to decide on new leadership that can set a clear direction for the company going forward.”

Eiji Maeda, an analyst at SMBC Nikko Securities Inc.

“Everyone seems to be pricing in a smartphone success story for Nintendo."

Atul Goyal, an analyst at Jefferies Group LLC

“The turnaround will happen after Nintendo has launched its first smartphone game. From here onwards, it is well positioned to regain previous highs in profits and the stock price, if it executes half as well as it’s capable of.”

Blast Off for Sugar Shock: Astral Breakers Lifts Off August 6th for Wii U eShop

It’s called Astral Breakers, and it’s a brand new cooperative-competitive action puzzle game. That’s quite the mouthful, so let me break it down.

Basically, you break colorful spheres and then watch with glee as your opponent’s mouth gapes open in horror as a massive chunk of garbage spheres drops on his/her playing field! Fun, right? Well...it is if you’re the winner, anyway. When I play against Lisa, it never ends well for me.

What makes our game different, you ask?

For starters, it’s balanced with eSports in mind, and finished with a casual touch. I’m an eSports writer, she likes ridiculously cute things, we’re both engineers by trade. We combined our powers, and Astral Breakers was born. Everybody wins.
Also, aside from the fact you can play against each other in a Versus mode…
Or team up against the CPU in a special two-player SuperNova survival mode…
You can even draw your own characters. Astral Breakers is based on a Zodiac theme, and you can use the Wii U GamePad to plot your own constellations.
When you do, those constellations will take on different properties when you take them into battle.
Based on what you name your creations and how you draw them, their drop pattern and drop intensity (amount of garbage dropped on an opponent) will change. Generally, the more complex the drawing, the more lethal your custom constellations become.

Or, if you’re feeling lazy, you can pick from any of the 12 existing Zodiac constellations. But we know you aren’t lazy. You are going to want to see shenanigans. And we at Intropy Games provide shenanigans of the ridiculously over-the-top saccharine-sweet hurt-your-teeth kind. The best shenanigans ever.
