Nintendo’s next mobile games will be based on Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing. Here is what the company had to say:
Nintendo’s Next Mobile Apps: Building on the positive consumer reaction to Miitomo, Nintendo announced that its next two mobile apps would be based on the familiar and beloved Fire Emblem and Animal Crossing franchises. Nintendo plans to release both of these applications this autumn. As for the former app, while making it more accessible in comparison to the Fire Emblem games for Nintendo’s dedicated gaming systems, Nintendo aims to offer the great value of a role-playing strategy game. Nintendo will design the latter game so that it will be connected with the world of Animal Crossing for dedicated gaming systems. By playing both Animal Crossing games, users will find increased enjoyment. Both of these are pure game applications. Compared to Miitomo, they have more prominent game elements, and the game content will tie closely into Nintendo’s dedicated games business. Nintendo will provide more details about these applications closer to their launch period, and aims to have multiple types of apps that appeal to different audiences and different groups of players.
This information was given during Nintendo’s investor meeting. Seems like both titles would fit perfectly on the mobile (iOS and Android) platform as they have found homes on Nintendo’s own mobile platforms in the past. Count me excited.
Survey Monkey had the following to share regarding Miitomo’s daily revenue:
Making it rain – $280,000 per week
Monetization has also increased steadily and we estimate that the game is now making $40,000 combined per day across iOS and Android. Roughly 80% of the revenue is from iOS with Android only contributing 20%.
On a per-user basis, we estimate the app has an ARPDAU (Average Revenue Per Daily Active User) of 3-4 cents. While low compared to mid-core games like Supercell’s Clash Royale, this is actually a healthy number for a more casual game like Miitomo, especially early on.
Miitomo, Nintendo’s first official foray into the smartphone market, has seen tremendous success thus far for the company and we don’t see it slowing down. Perennially, I have enjoyed the “social network” and can understand why people have flocked to the game due to its wide appeal. I will be interested to see how Nintendo’s future iOS and Android releases will fair as this is only the beginning for the big N.
Stay tuned for more Miitomo news. Have you downloaded Miitomo yet?
In just 4 days, Miitomo, Nintendo’s first official mobile social media game, has been downloaded over 1.6 million times in the US alone. Miitomo was released on March 30th and is available for iOS and Android. 51% of Miitomo’s install base comes from the US, more than any other territory. Other top regions were Great Britain, France, Germany, and Canada.
Crazy stuff and we can’t wait to see what happens next for Miitomo. I am certainly enjoying it thus far.
Miitomo, Nintendo’s first foray into the mobile genre, has officially passed 1 million users. The application was released in Japan and has reached this impressive milestone in just 3 days time. Miitomo debuted in Japan on March 17 and will be headed to other regions in the very near future.
Nintendo has to be thrilled with these numbers and we are eager to download Miitomo for ourselves whenever it’s released. Great news for Nintendo.
Nintendo has announced that their first mobile title, Miitomo, will Launch in Japan on March 17th. Next week will mark the release of the highly anticipated (yes I think it should be considered “highly anticipated”) mobile title from Nintendo and we will keep you all up to date on the momentous occasion. I would imagine that a Western release will not be too far behind so as soon as we hear something, we will let you know.
Does Miitomo catch your fancy? You know you plan on downloading it….

During today’s Nintendo investor meeting, the company has announced its first official game into the mobile gaming market (cell phone mobile gaming market that is). Miitomo is the first of five smartphone apps that Nintendo plans to release by March 2017. In the new Miitomo game, users will design their own avatars, or “Miis,” to communicate with other users. Executive Shinya Takahashi says that Nintendo will find ways to encourage people who are hesitant to talk to share things about themselves. The newly announced game will be free-to-play.
The company has also stated that its first games will release in 2016 and not year’s end. Sounds pretty interesting.
Here is the first Angry Birds 2 trailer for everyone to check out! The iOS and mobile standout is finally getting an “official” sequel and we will know more about the game very soon. The first one continues to top the mobile charts and we can’t wait to see what the new game will bring.
Rayman Adventures, the latest installment of the best-selling Rayman franchise, is currently in development for smartphones and tablets, by Ubisoft Montpellier. This eclectic new adventure will be available worldwide during fall 2015.
Rayman Adventures bring players on an odyssey where they will explore legendary worlds, from whimsical castles to the mythical islands of Olympus. They will enjoy an exciting mix between action and exploration in which they will be able to freely move around and about as they like through stunning environments.
The brand new Incrediballs make their first appearance in Rayman Adventures. Those little funny creatures will be the players’ partners in their epic adventures. They will have to seek out The Incrediballs, collect them, and unleash their powers to save the world.
From what we see in this awesome trailer, it looks pretty nice and we will welcome the title with open arms when it’s released. Like it or not, these Rayman games are outstanding on iPad and you should give them a try.
