Though Nintendo is known for mobile consoles — Game Boy, DS, Nintendo Switch — it's never really been known as a mobile game developer. However, in recent years, the company has made significant strides in the mobile gaming market. With the success of games like Mario Kart Tour and Fire Emblem Heroes, Nintendo has proven that its beloved franchises can thrive on mobile devices.

In total, mobile and IP-related sales reached ¥75.2 billion ($505.6 million) across the three quarters, marking the aforementioned 93.4% year-on-year increase. This significant growth in mobile gaming revenue highlights Nintendo's successful foray into the mobile gaming space.

Nintendo Co Ltd's mobile partner DeNA Co Ltd said on Wednesday it was booking a 49.4 billion yen ($450 million) writedown as its gaming business falters in comparison to Nintendo's success. Despite this setback for DeNA, Nintendo continues to push forward with its mobile gaming initiatives.

The Nintendo DS was one of the best handheld consoles ever. You can now relive the glory with the best Nintendo DS emulators for Android! This nostalgia for classic Nintendo games has fueled interest in the company's mobile offerings.

The new update has arrived - If you're still making use of Switch Online mobile app, and happen to be using an older device, you might want to consider upgrading for optimal performance. Nintendo is committed to providing the best mobile gaming experience for its players.

Nintendo's hit strategy-RPG Fire Emblem series, which has been going strong for more than 30 years, continues its journey on smart devices. The success of Fire Emblem Heroes on mobile has paved the way for other Nintendo franchises to make the leap to mobile platforms.

Nintendo and game publisher DeNA will discontinue creating new content for the mobile game Mario Kart Tour starting October 4th, signaling a shift in focus for both companies. This decision reflects Nintendo's strategy of focusing on new mobile gaming projects in the future.

Apple has thrown its full weight behind mobile gaming: the A17 Pro chip in the new iPhone 15 now lets you play full console games like never before. This partnership between Apple and Nintendo could lead to even more exciting mobile gaming experiences for players.

'Mario Kart Tour' has carved out a niche for itself in the mobile gaming space since launching as a beta in 2019, but all good things must come to an end. Nintendo's decision to discontinue new content for the game signals a shift in focus towards other mobile gaming projects.
