Nintendo may be shooting itself in the foot because of its lack of new characters or IP, says Ngmoco CEO Neil Young. The Rage of Bahamut developer doesn’t seem phased by Nintendo much at all for that matter.

Ngmoco currently boasts Android and iOS mega hit Rage of Bahamut, a collectible card game app with a fantasy twist. Check it out here.

Speaking with Gamasutra at a developer showcase, Young explained, “The ecosystem that they’ve created, it’s just really difficult to justify spending 30 dollars on a game that is anything other than a Mario, a Zelda, a Pokemon. I think that ultimately their ecosystem starts to fall apart.”

When asked if he felt Nintendo was a competitor to Ngmoco, Young replied, “No. Well… no.”
