Nintendo mobile strategy

Nintendo has reiterated that the main purpose of its mobile games are for marketing and to expose people to its IP.

Axios took a look at the situation surrounding the Big N on mobile given how Dragalia Lost shut down this week. Dr. Mario World and Miitomo were previously closed as well.

Now Nintendo has five mobile games at its disposal: Fire Emblem Heroes, Mario Kart Tour, Super Mario Run, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, and Pikmin Bloom. However, these experiences make up a meager amount of Nintendo’s overall revenue. While Switch games and hardware generated $4.5 billion between April and September, the apps earned only $169 million. Mobile tracking firm also says the Nintendo Switch Online app was downloaded more this year than Fire Emblem Heroes, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp, and Pikmin Bloom.

Disney Speedstorm was announced for Switch during a Nintendo Direct in February. It was originally planned for this past summer.

Fire Emblem Engage Byleth

Byleth makes an appearance in Fire Emblem Engage as one of the characters players can summon, and details about him have now been shared on the series’ Japanese Twitter account. Serenes Forest provided a translation.

Byleth, who is voiced by Yusuke Kobayashi in the Japanese version, is a former mercenary and now acts as an instructor at the Officer’s Academy.
