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.
Android users get ready for Pokemon! The Pokemon Trading Card Game online is finally headed to the Android platform in the near future. The popular title was released on iOS a while back but is now officially headed to Android users. People who want to get in on the TCG need to be running Android OS 4.0 or later and the game is currently in an open beta.
Check it out and let us know what you think.
Miitomo, Nintendo first foray into the iOS market, has hit the charts coming in at #1. The nifty little social media application hit the coveted number in under 24 hours and has been entertaining to yours truly. Keep in ming that this is just on Apple platforms so we have yet to see how well it will do on Android devices. I have downloaded it and am liking 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….
Get your popcorn ready as we are here to bring you an all new Mobile Game of The Week! Hello gamers, MVGN and Poki have teamed up to bring you some amazing bite-sized games that you can play in your mobile browsers and today’s title is Return Man 3: The Season Game. While it’s been a few weeks since we have brought you a new Mobile Browser Game of The Week, this one is perfect timing as football season is gearing up here in the States.
The premise of the game is simple; players have to return the kickoff for a touchdown! As the return man, your job is to reach the end zone without getting tackled by the opposing team. You can perform special moves to avoid defenders, including hurdles, jukes, and spins but make sure you follow your blockers for a better chance on reaching the end zone. After completing 4 stages, you will unlock a new week of challenges!
This is a perfect little title that should keep you busy between putting in your fantasy football starting lineup or if you’re taking a quick break at work. The game only uses 4 keys on the keyboard and is mindless fun for anyone who enjoys American Football. Even if players fumble the ball, you can still pick it up and run it back for a TD. If you’re looking for a nice little time killer, this could be your game. Check it out and let us know what you think.
Keep it here for more fun games to play in your mobile browser.
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.
It’s Saturday my friends and that can only mean one thing; it’s an all new Mobile Browser Game of The Week time. In case you missed previous months, our friends and MVGN have teamed up to bring you all something fun to break up your day. Once a week, we introduce a new game that you can play in your mobile browser or on your work computers (during breaks of course)to help pass the time. This week we have decided to showcase Bleach vs Naruto 2.4.
In Bleach vs Naruto 2.4, players fight to the death against characters from Bleach and Naruto! This fighting game is all about crossover matchups. Choose from the greatest heroes and most devious villains. Every competitor has special moves and skills. Become the champion of both worlds in Bleach vs Naruto 2.4.
The game is a nice little crossover that reminds me of an old school SNES fighting game (which is a good thing). It brought me back to my younger years with sprites designed straight out of the 90’s. It’s a pretty nifty little title that I would imagine people would dig if they are into either anime series. If you are looking for a nice little break and want to play a game either in your mobile browser or on your work computers, give Bleach vs Naruto 2.4.
As always, thanks for reading and be sure to tune in next week for another “Mobile Browser Game of The Week”
