If you did not know, Nintendo recently signed a deal with mobile games studio, DeNa, to develop and publish mobile games based on Nintendo’s IP. As the gaming giant prepares for its entry into the $30 billion USD mobile games market, it was announced that five mobile games scheduled to be released by fiscal year 2017, with one game still on track for launch later this year.
Nintendo did not specify which properties would be used for these releases, but notes that it will “carefully select IP and titles” with DeNa. I am personally hoping for a simple, yet fun Super Mario game to kick off the company’s mobile gaming era. From the somewhat conservative number of releases planned, it would seem Nintendo is keen on high quality apps rather than quantities.
