Back in 2015, Satoru Iwata announced a new partnership between Nintendo and mobile game developer DeNA, revealing a plan to release five games on mobile devices by the end of the 2016 fiscal year (March 31, 2017). However, after the announcement of Super Mario Run earlier today, Shigeru Miyamoto confirmed that Nintendo’s goal is to release their fourth game by March instead. This is due to each game taking longer to develop than originally predicted.
Nintendo released their first mobile game,
Miitomo, earlier this this year. Super Mario Run is the second title to come from the partnership with DeNA. Future mobile titles for both the Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing series are in development as well. While they were both originally planned to be released this year, they were unfortunately pushed back to Nintendo’s 2017 release schedule.
