Nintendo plans to release 2-3 mobile games a year, delays Animal Crossing

Nintendo told investors it plans to release two to three mobile games a year for the foreseeable future, Reuters reports. While the company said at least 70 game makers are producing an estimated 100 titles for the upcoming Switch console, Nintendo delayed the release of the upcoming Animal Crossing game by at least a month—it’s now slated for April at the earliest—to ensure the release of Fire Emblem: Heroes later this week. Nintendo roared to success in the mobile game industry with the wildly popular Pokémon GO, but it’s subsequent release of Super Mario Run didn’t generate the same revenue boost due to its one-time only payment structure.
