Nintendo plans to release several mobile games every year from 2017.
Nintendo’s CEO Tatsumi Kimishima has stated in an interview with Kyoto NP that the company wants to release approximately 2-3 games every year.
Super Mario Run is also the first mobile game from Nintendo that was released for the mobile platforms. The game was released in December this year and is currently available only for iOS, but it will also be available for Android in early 2017.
New mobile games in 2017
Mobile games that are expected from Nintendo in 2017 are the Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing series. However, despite its popularity, there is much criticism of the Super Mario Run game. Many people find the price of 9.99 euros too expensive for a game. The business model of the game was also an objection for some shareholders. The shareholders prefer a freemium model in the game.
