Nintendo Latest Rumors, Release Date and Update: Who Will Run Alongside ‘Super Mario’ In 2017

There has been a change of plans on the part of Nintendo as far as the number games it is set to release in 2017. After initially announcing that there would be five games coming, there will only be four coming out next year.

Word of such comes from Shigeru Miyamoto who explains that the original plan was to have five titles. Unfortunately, governing market conditions may have altered the plans. One obviously coming out is “Super Mario Run” which was highlighted alongside the iPhone 7 launch just recently.

Last year, Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima bared that five games were set to come out in in 2017. All that was part of Nintendo’s partnership with DeNA.

Other mobile games coming

Aside from Super Mario Run, other games reportedly coming out include “Fire Emblem” and “Animal Crossing”. Both games were originally set to come out later this year but have reportedly suffered setbacks, hence delays. They have now been reset for a March 2017 release, IGN reported.

“Super Mario Run” covers up the confusion

While the real number of games Nintendo is up for debate, “Super Mario Run” has obviously stolen the limelight. It was something many did not expect following its announcement in San Francisco.

It is another dish on the part of Nintendo for the mobile gaming sector, one that was shown off alongside that “Pokemon Go” Apple Watch 2 integration. Compared to that, however, this is more of a game and not something that was meant for simply alerting owners.

According to Forbes, players will be tasked to navigate through the usual levels and collect as many coins as they can. Tapping will make Mario jump and hints that “Super Mario Run” can be played using only one hand.

Super Mario run will reportedly become available in December with its suggested SRP still unknown. Gamers can initially try the game for free and be available in over 100 countries.
