Nintendo Switch with greater portability in the works

Nintendo Switch with greater portability in the works

Nintendo also owns a five percent share of mobile developer Cygames, which released action-RPG Dragalia Lost with Nintendo past year.

Aside from a new Switch console, the report mentions that there will be some sort of improvement made on the Switch online service, but there isn't much more information around that detail right now.

That delay means Nintendo will miss its target of releasing two to three mobile titles each financial year, though CEO Furukawa said there was no change to that goal.

Rumours have swirled for months now that Nintendo was planning to release new Switch hardware in 2019, but exactly what that might be is a mystery.

"Under this collaboration, we plan to release Dr. Mario World in early summer 2019 for the global market, including Japan and the United States", said Nintendo President Shuntaro Furakawa in a prepared statement. It's going to be free to download, and it will include optional in-app purchases.

Originally released on the NES in 1990, Dr. Mario has seen occasional re-releases on various Nintendo platforms over the ensuing decades.

Something to look forward to: A classic Mario game is being made into a mobile app so that all of the fun can be had on modern devices.

According to credible new reports from Japan's Nikkei (via Engadget) the latter is true, with Nintendo eyeing off the customers who consider the Switch too bulky to be truly portable. Share your views with us inn the comments.
