Nintendo is aiming to release two to three new smartphone applications every year – even though its first mobile title, Super Mario Run, wasn’t as profitable as it had hoped.
President of Nintendo Tatsumi Kimishima disclosed the firm’s future plans during a financial briefing on Tuesday October 31, revealing that Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp will be the next Nintendo game to hit the App Store (and Play Store, for that matter).

Rest assured – the onslaught of new titles won’t stop Nintendo from updating its existing catalogue. Super Mario Run, for example, was treated to a new build in September and will continue to receive upgrades for the foreseeable future.
If Nintendo wants to make some serious money – and chances are it does – it may well want to take a serious look at Apple’s brand new ARKit platform, which could help it build an immersive augmented reality (AR) title for devices like the iPhone X and iPhone 8.
That said, the iconic Japanese games company has already enjoyed a bumper 2017, largely thanks to the success of its Nintendo Switch console – we gave the new-gen system a rare 10/10 score in our Nintendo Switch review.
