"We want to create games that will be played by hundreds of millions of people," said Isao Moriyasu, CEO of DeNA, in a statement to Reuters. "We haven't talked to Nintendo about targets, but at DeNA, our best-selling game brought in 3 billion yen ($25 million) a month, and we want to surpass that."

DeNA will diversify and focus on releasing a catalog of game titles it hopes will be popular among mobile gamers - and hopes DeNA will be able to generate massive revenue for itself and Nintendo in the future.
