For a long time, Nintendo refused to bring its franchises to mobile devices in part because the company maintained that it would rather focus on its own dedicated gaming devices. However, this stance changed, and Nintendo has already released a few mobile games and apps, including Miitopia, Super Mario Run, Fire Emblem Heroes, and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.
In December, a report from the Wall Street Journal claimed that Nintendo was seeking more partners to release more mobile games, and faster, in an attempt to catch up.
