Nintendo Wants To Ramp Up Its Mobile Game Development


GameSpot has the story.

Quote:
Nintendo wants to do more in the mobile game space, apparently. Nintendo already owns a 10 percent stake in DeNA and is working with them on five mobile games, the most recent of which was Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. But The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Nintendo wants to work with more mobile game developers to release more games after the company failed to get involved in the mobile game space early on.

According to the report, Nintendo believes it can release more games, faster, by aligning with more partners. However, the report added that Nintendo doesn't plan to actually invest in any of these companies, as it did with DeNA.

The report claims that Nintendo spoke with Puzzle & Dragons developer GungHo about a potential partnership, though a spokesperson claimed no discussions ever happened with Nintendo. The two companies already worked together, as some Mario characters showed up in the Puzzle & Dragons game for 3DS. There is no word on what other companies Nintendo might have spoken with or will speak with about making mobile games.

Phone controls dont fucking work unless its a card or puzzle game. They keep trying to shoehorn in console games with section 8 EBT controls.

Make a game that works on a phone and paste luigi on it. How fucking hard is it.

These minigames were better than the actual game.

Honestly, Nintendo should have been dominating the mobile space already 5 years ago.

Two billion mobile devices globally is a pretty large market to have ignored for all these years, considering their expertise in mobile games.

Release the Kraken...I mean, the content!

They need their own phone. I would buy one.

Then again why bother with any of that phone stuff.

9 months, 10 million sold.

That outsells the Bone in it's first 9 months.

The PS4 had about 14 million units sold by the full year mark, so the Switch will be right along pace with the PS4.

Nintendo just changed their forecast to 17 million by it's first full year's end. That would actually out-pace the PS4.

If Nintendo keeps up with high quality games, they could move a ton of units in year 2.

Good sales doesn't mean that they are wrong in voicing their opinion. I own the Switch, have the major titles (rented the rest) and I agree that the system is under powered and the games just do not feel that challenging (most of my deaths in Zelda and Mario have been due to my Left Joy Con desyncing - I should really get it repaired - rather than failing to complete a task properly).

I've had fun playing the games, but I've had no attachment to the games. That is, once I stopped playing them, I stopped thinking about them entirely.

Im getting that as well. I can and do play Mario Kart every morning before bed. I love that game. Not sure what im getting next. But the system seems like its starting to grow on me slowly. I getting those ...hey this thing is really cool...moments.

With Nintendo's expertise in mobile game development and their current system a Nvidia Shield update, which is to say it is using a Tegra ARM SoC, I am surprised they don't release a full featured phone. Pack in a pair of joycons and add a slot for game SD cards and it seems you have a recipe for success.

They wouldn't even have to call it a phone. Just add a SIM card slot to your new handheld and allow owners to call other people on their phones as a convenient "bonus" feature. Voilà, you're still a gaming company!

The main issue with this plan is that most people aren't using their 800-dollars smarttoys as phones anymore. To really compete with the likes of Samsung, Nintendo would have to add a high-end camera as well as all kinds of apps. Or, since that cannot possibly work (see the Vita), they'd have to open the floodgates of the Google Play Store. And for those apps to run properly, the device would need beefy hardware and a strong battery. At that point, you might just as well call it a phone. Ah, sod it. I hate refuting myself...
