Nintendo Announces Partnership With DeNA →

The company has announced that it will team up with DeNA, a major Japanese mobile gaming company, to make smartphone games featuring Nintendo characters. The two companies “intend to jointly operate new gaming applications featuring Nintendo IP, which they will develop specifically for smart devices”

Great news for Nintendo fans and shareholders. The stock is up 27% a few hours after the announcement. This partnership shows that Nintendo understands mobile much better than people give them credit for. Also, the approach they’re taking — only original games built for mobile, no ports straight from the console — is without a doubt the best option they have in making a significant entry into mobile. I sincerely hope they succeed.
