Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima has told investors that the publisher plans to release two to three mobile titles per year.
“We plan to continue releasing two to three titles per year that consumers can enjoy as Nintendoʼs smart-device applications,” Tatsumi said during a recent call.
“It is possible to provide applications that feel related to the dedicated video game systems even if they do not have any direct connections,” added Managing Executive Officer Shinya Takahashi. “I believe that smart devices, particularly bigger ones like tablets, are easy for smaller children to use which makes it easier for them to experience Nintendoʼs IP (intellectual property), so we have been planning to create synergy between smart devices and our dedicated video game systems.”
Recently, Nintendo released Fire Emblem: Heroes to both iOS and Android. Super Mario Run is currently available on iOS and heads to Android very shortly. Of late, an Animal Crossing mobile title has been delayed to the next financial year.
