Nintendo’s venture into mobile is yet been defined. We know about the first app the developer will be pushing out, Miitomo in March, but until that happens, we don’t really know what this means for the mobile space or Nintendo.
One thing we do know for sure now though is that the company is planning to utilise the Free-to-Play model across the board, at least for the first wave of games. It was revealed in a report by The Wall Street Journal, DeNA confirmed the pay model, as well as the fact that there should be five branded Nintendo games out by March 2017.
I really am fascinated to see how this plays out, and honestly, I don’t think the game is going to have a hard time finding that audience. It’s just a case of if the quality is there, and if the past shows us anything, it’s that Nintendo are pretty good with the software they put their name too.
