Nintendo took their time entering the mobile gaming market. Their first attempt, Miitomo, was short-lived. Some may call it a failure. The gaming behmoth didn’t give up Nintendo released “Mario Run.” The endless runner featuring Nintendo’s famous mascot Mario created a runaway success. Nintendo launched three other mobile titles, all successful: Fire Emblem Heroes, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, and Dragalia Lost. The latter being a completely new, mobile-first IP.
Nintendo isn’t done with mobile. They want a bigger piece of the pie.
