A while ago, Konami announced that it would be shifting more of its resources towards mobile gaming while still putting out titles for home consoles and the PC.
It’s a sign of the times that one of the biggest publishers is looking to make a better profit off of the ever-growing mobile gaming industry. Just about everyone and their mothers carries around a smartphone or a tablet computer these days, so it’s not that odd to find more publishers wanting to expand into the pockets of as many people possible.
Konami has published a new survey for consumers to participate in, in which participants are asked to identify which of Konami’s IP’s they are familiar with and how they would prefer to play each game. It could possibly be that Konami is gauging interest in porting some of its older gems to mobile devices, or perhaps the publisher is looking to revive some long-dead properties specifically for the mobile market.
It’s an interesting survey and it gives people the chance to win $200 in Amazon gift vouchers, so it’s worth a look if you’re interested. Lets just hope we don’t see another beloved franchise turned into a slot machine, a la Silent Hill…
