Nintendo jumped into the mobile gaming market not too long ago. Since then, the company has tried different tactics to be lucrative in the busy space.
Nintendo today announced that its next mobile game for iOS and Android will be Dr. Mario World. Developed in partnership with LINE, the game will be released in early summer of 2019 in Japan, the United States, and other countries.
Last year, Nintendo had announced that it would be releasing the first Mario Kart game for iOS before March 2019. Sadly, that timeline has now changed as Nintendo has delayed the release of the game in order to improve its quality.
Nintendo has been going pretty strong with its mobile efforts, with titles like Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp doing very well for the company.
When Nintendo announced way back when that it was going to start making smartphone games (in partnership with DeNA Studio), the anticipation for Mario to arrive on mobile devices was high.
On the first day of February, Nintendo almost broke the internet by announcing it would launch Mario Kart Tour for mobile devices, bringing the incredibly popular franchise to smartphones.
Nintendo today announced that it is working on bringing its massively popular Mario Kart game series to mobile devices. The game is currently in testing and will be released by March 2019. Yep, that’s a wait of more than a year we are talking about here.
Nintendo has decided to end support for its first-ever smartphone game: Miitomo. The company’s first foray into smartphone games was less than impressive to save the least. Many expected the company to first release a game based on its popular character Mario but instead, they got Miitomo — a weird game where players interact with Mii characters, talk to them, and more.
Nintendo’s announcement back in 2015, that the company was finally jumping into the mobile gaming market, was not only exciting, but also ambitious.
It has not been very long since Nintendo launched its newest smartphone game, a new entry in the long-running Animal Crossing series, but it has proven quite popular already.
