Sony set to launch mobile games on iOS

Following Nintendo’s lead, Sony is planning to launch more than five mobile games for iOS by March 2018, CNBC reports. As previously reported, the games will be produced by Sony’s ForwardWorks subsidiary and released first in Japan and other Asian markets where the company has seen lagging console sales. Sony hasn’t elaborated on which games will be coming first, but Serkan Toto, CEO of Japanese gaming consultant and advisory group Kantan Games, warned against looking for the company to replicate the early success of titles like Pokémon GO. “Sony doesn’t have the same power as the Nintendo IP. There is nothing that comes even close to Mario,” Toto said.
