Nintendo’s entry into the mobile world is somewhat of an uncertain step for them, having previously little to no experience on the mobile platform, as well as, its pervasive “free to play” economy. Yet things seem to be doing very well for them.
In this year’s Google Play “Best of 2017” Japan Mobile Game nominations, which searches the Japanese Google Play Store for the best games this year, two of Nintendo’s game, Fire Emblem Heroes, Super Mario Run got nominated for the award. Super Mario Run was released only released in March 2017 on Android, despite being released in December 2016 for iOS.
In fact, one other game, Magikarp jump also got nominated for the award, which is quite surprising at least to me.
