Switch Online Has 8 Million Subscribed Accounts, Nintendo Working To "Expand" Service

The Kyoto-based gaming company said it expected to sell 17 million Switch consoles in the year ending March from 20 million previously and also cut the forecast for its aging 3DS handheld, underscoring the need to find other sources of revenue.

Nintendo recently announced that it will be delaying the release of Mario Kart for iOS.

Not many details were shared, but from what Nintendo does say, it'll be a "Puzzle" game.

Early a year ago, Nintendo announced it was working on an animated movie based on its most popular franchise, Super Mario Bros.

"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.

As with all of Nintendo's recent mobile games (Fire Emblem Heroes, Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp), Dr. Mario World will be free to download with in-app purchases.

Taking inspiration from Tetris, Dr. Mario is a frantic puzzle game in which players match blocks as they fall from the top of the screen to the bottom.

Suppliers and some developers already know of the portable focussed Switch, Tweeted Nintendo Life's Steve Bowling, but he reminded us a pinch of salt is still required, even with such well sourced rumours as the Nikkei, and the WSJ previous year.

Together with Nintendo and LINE, NHN Entertainment, which has released and operated various online and mobile games, will take part in the development and operation of Dr. Mario World. What are your thoughts on the matter?
