Unfortunately, Nintendo expects its revenue to decline 9% in fiscal 2021 against a tough year-over-year comparison. Nintendo's "mobile and IP related income" unit generated 3.2% of its revenue last year, while the legacy playing cards unit — which has existed since Nintendo's founding in 1889 — generated just 0.1% of its revenues.
