Konami EU President Masami Saso: Konami plans to increase its portfolio, more projects and Yu-Gi-Oh success sat down with Konami EU President Masami Saso for an interview recently. In this interview, many interesting tidbits about the importance of console games and projects were discussed. 2019 marks the fifth year of consistent growth for Konami. Over the past few years, more console games have been developed and published by the company. Some of these games include Super Bomberman R, several Yu Gi Oh titles and Contra: Rogue Corps on Nintendo Switch.

    Mobile games and PES have been a major factor of success for the company as well. Another example of success was the release of Yu-Gi-Oh Switch exclusive game, Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution. Legacy of the Duelist: Link Evolution outsold all retail games across EMEAA territories during release week. Konami EU President Saso states that Konami plans to increase their portfolio for both current and next-gen platforms. Multi-platform strategies will remain.

    Here’s the excerpt from the interview:

    “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.”

    With this in mind, its safe to assume that Konami will release more titles across platforms such as PS4 and Nintendo Switch. Stay tuned at Final Weapon for more news regarding Konami and new releases down the line.
