Both Nintendo and Sony are doing great things now to get content for their platforms and and investing for the future to keep getting content. I'm not sure how we can say either of them are "barely trying"Complacent to a fault, Same with Jim Ryan. Its like now that nintendo and sony are doing really well, they are barely trying if that makes sense. But still, its better than running your mouth for almost a decade and not having much to show for it (phil spencer)
I think its fair to say that the Pokémon Company will continue their mobile efforts, but Nintendo themselves have taken a step back from the push for mobile games after the Switch proved quite successful.I like him. I think that following the Nintendo tradition has been very conservative and basically the company followed the same strategy they had before. I think the main moves made during his era that aren't heritage from the other ones have been their partnership with Illumination for the movies and the growth of the internal teams. Things that in both cases made sense and were needed.
I don't care if he appears publicly or not: as a CEO his job is not to be a PR star or a salesman.
They released many games in the 4 years or so:
Pokémon: Magikarp Jump (2017)
Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp (2017)
Pokémon Quest (2018)
Dragalia Lost (2018)
Pokémon Rumble Rush (2019)
Dr. Mario World (2019)
Pokémon Masters/Pokémon Masters EX (2019)
Mario Kart Tour (2019)
Pokémon Smile (2020)
Pokémon Unite (2021)
Pikmin Bloom (2021)
Pokémon Sleep (TBA / canned or delayed?)
That's not to say that they'll never release a mobile games ever again, but they'll focus less on it than they did before. I do see them doing some more mobile applications that link with people's Nintendo Account, rather than standalone titles.
