Nintendo’s fifth mobile game won’t be launching by March as originally planned

In recent months, Nintendo has spoken about wanting to launch five mobile games by March 2017. However, that number is now dropping to four.

We posted this in our TIME interview roundup post about Super Mario Run, but Shigeru Miyamoto told the publication that Nintendo’s plans changed due to “market conditions and the development process”. His full words:

“We’ve consistently stated a plan to launch approximately five mobile apps by the end of this fiscal year, including Miitomo. Given market conditions and the development process for each title, our current plan is to launch four total mobile titles in that period.”

Miitomo was up first, and Super Mario Run is next in December. Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing will then follow by the end of March. As for the one after that, it’s unknown what Nintendo is working on.
