Next, I will cover our mobile business. We are continuously implementing events and updates and adding more ways to satisfy consumers as we work to optimize how we operate each application. Overall revenue from the mobile business has expanded compared to the previous fiscal year. As previously mentioned, we will release both Dr. Mario World and Mario Kart Tour this summer. This means we will be operating a total of six applications globally starting this summer.

As we announced the other day, we are accepting applications for closed beta testing of Mario Kart Tour. The closed beta is scheduled to start on May 21 (Pacific Daylight Time). Based on the information we gather from this testing and from the opinions of the participants, we will proceed with final preparations for release.

The six applications including Mario Kart Tour deal with different IP, and the goals and the characteristics for the
applications also differ. Going forward, we will leverage the ubiquity of mobile devices to expand the number of
people who have access to Nintendo IP through multiple applications like these.


The Nintendo Switch Online app has received an update – at least on iOS. Version 1.5.1 implements the latest bug fixes. Nothing else is mentioned beyond that.

The update isn’t up on Android at this time, but it’ll presumably be issued to users on those devices soon.

A new Bound Hero Battle is now available in Fire Emblem Heroes. BHB: Titania & Mist has you facing off against these two members of the Greil Mercenaries. The BHB is available on Hard, Lunatic and Infernal difficulty; clearing them gets you two, three and four orbs, respectively. The maps are available until May 4th.

A Summoning Focus based on the Bound Hero Battle will also be available until May 4th. The 5-star focus units are Titania: Mighty Mercenary, Mist: Helpful Sister and Ike: Young Mercenary.

Finally, Tactics Drills was updated with a new map today. “Close-Quarters Combat” can be found in the Grandmaster section. Clearing it gets you 300 feathers.
