Konami insists console games are priority
Saso stated recently in an interview with a gaming publication that console games remain integral to the publisher’s business. There are even plans for them to expand its company’s portfolio in the near future.
Console game development is still the forefront of the publisher’s business plans, according to Saso. Innovation in the console space will also help the company expand its influence in the mobile market.
Here is Saso’s exact statement:
Even with new platforms coming out, we believe high-end console games are the most important. We challenge for innovative ideas and technology within our console games and apply them to other devices, so we will continue to put effort into our console games. We also plan to increase our portfolio. In addition to the multi-device titles for PES and Yu-Gi-Oh, we plan to work on projects with other globally known IPs in the near future.
It is a part of our legacy to create new ideas and IPs to fit each age, and we believe that spirit is one of the reasons for our strength in the mobile game market. We can provide high-quality mobile games because of our technology to create high-end console games, as well as having knowledge to operate games because of our experience in arcade, PC and browser games. Our extensive experience in creating games for many devices is a strength we have at Konami like no other.
