Nintendo Says Second Mobile Game to Feature a ‘Familiar’ Character

While Nintendo’s quarterly profit picture was disappointing to say the least, it at least gave gamers a bit of hope for a brighter gaming future on their mobile devices, as the company’s president said on Tuesday that the second smartphone app from game maker would feature one of the its popular characters.

Nintendo Says Second Mobile Game to Feature a 'Familiar' Character

The Wall Street Journal, via MacRumors:

“The second game won’t be another communication app, and we plan to adopt one of our characters that fans are very familiar with,” Nintendo CEO Tatsumi Kimishima said.

October saw the big N reveal details about its first app for mobile devices to be released via a partnership with DeNA. “Miitomo” features a social network-like setting featuring interactions between the company’s familiar “Mii” avatars. When the free to play app was announced, many Nintendo fans were disappointed that the gaming company’s first mobile app wouldn’t feature Mario, or one of Nintendo’s other popular characters.

Miitomo was expected to be released by the end of 2015, but Nintendo pushed the release date back to March of this year, saying it wanted the time in order to better explain what the app was all about, and to give it a better promotional push before its release.

Nintendo’s net income for the September-to-December quarter was 29.1 billion yen ($241m; £168m) – 36% lower than for the same period in 2014. (Via the BBC)
