James Wynne commented on Super Mario Run's revenue projections have been dashed by almost 75%:
I don't think we see eye to eye on everything. I don't think many, if any, Nintendo mainline franchises are stagnant. Yeah, there are tons of Mario Games, but the differences between Mario Galaxy, Super Mario 3D World, and Mario Maker are freaking huge compared to say the differences between Ubisoft AAA games.
The only mainline flagship franchise that you could have said had stagnated, was Zelda, and Breath of the Wild has completely shaken up that formula. Mario is always different, Metroid needs to stop being different, new Zelda is wildly different, Fire Emblem Fates is superbly different, new Pokemon (only partly Nintendo owned) has changed the formula, Xenoblade is amazing,
Sure Pikmin is more of the same, but it's a smaller title that had had all of 3 games. DKCTF was another sidescrolling platformer, but at least it's the best side scrolling platformer in a decade. People say Mario Kart is stale, but they're wrong, and just like Smash, there's only so much you can do new with fighting games and racing around a track.
I also think premium mobile games are great, because they provide a whole experience without cutting the game up into baby pieces and selling it to you in an endless loop of nickel and dime-ing. I hated Super Mario Run until I heard is was a $10, one time fee and I could play as much as I wanted without having to buy energy or sit there with my thumb crammed up my ass until an arbitrary timer counted down to 0.
Soon as it's on Android I'll by the shit out of it to show my support for proper gaming on a smart device instead of trash like candy crush.or clicker game garbage.
