Although Nintendo promised the launching of five mobile games before March 2017, apparently they are not going to be ready until April.
In an interview with TIME, Shigeru Miyamoto said that Nintendo will not be able to deliver more than four games.
Nintendo President, Tatsumi Kimishima, said the official partnership consists of five games produced by Nintendo Dena – a Japanese developer of mobile games.
Miyamoto has revealed the initial plan was the launching for five games, ‘the rules imposed by the technological market and the development process of the titles’, caused one of the games to be annulled from the launching schedule.
‘Super Mario Run’ was announced during the Apple press conference held in San Francisco. Apparently, the long-awaited gamed is characterized by an on-going run and you can play it with just one hand.
The first mobile game launched by Nintendo was Miitomo, Rather than a game, Miimoto was considered an interesting way to present users the new Nintendo network and the reward program.
The other two games presented by Nintendo are ‘Animal Crossing’ and ‘Fire Emblem’. These two were also postponed and their official launching will take place next year.
According to a statement for IGN, they will be available before March.
‘Due to a variety of factors, I felt the best option for Super Mario Run is to be released before the other two applications. Animal Crossing and Fire Emblem for mobile are going to launch on 31 March 2017’
