Nintendo considering release of 2 to 3 mobile games a year

Double-dipping on the mobile cash pool

In an interview this past Wednesday for the Kyoto Shimbun, Nintendo President Tatsumi Kimishima talked about the early reception and success of Super Mario Run and the 40 million downloads and $14 million dollars in revenue during the first four days of release.

Kimishima also stated that Nintendo is considering the release of two to three smartphone games a year, even beyond 2017. The original deal with DeNA was for a total of five games to be released by April of 2017. With Miitomo and Super Mario Run already out, and both Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing on the early part of 2017, the fifth game is still a mistery.

Regardless, this is welcome news as Nintendo seems to be very confident in its mobile offerings and results from their first two releases (regardless of what the investors think), as well as getting a healthy sum from Pokémon GO which was developed by Niantic.

Now that news of Nintendo continuing to support mobile games is a possibility, which additional franchises are you looking forward to making the jump to smartphones?
