Nintendo chief: Seeking growth sources as Switch sales slow

Nintendo Delays Mario Kart Tour to Later in 2019

Nintendo Delays Mario Kart Tour to Later in 2019

If you're not familiar with the premise of Dr. Mario, it is a vertical puzzle game in the vein of Tetris and Columns.

However, they can look to Legendary Nintendo games maker Shigeru Miyamoto for some crumbs of comfort.

Even though Breath of the Wild might've launched the Nintendo Switch to success, it's Mario Kart 8 Deluxe that now holds the crown of best-selling software.

However, Super Mario Run and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp didn't quite live up to the expectations of fans.

Dr. Mario is coming out on Android and iOS this summer as a free-to- play title with optional in-app purchases, which is both a good and a bad thing.

Nintendo has released its Earnings Report for the nine-month fiscal period that ended on December 31, 2018.

Nintendo Co. topped quarterly profit estimates on holiday demand for Pokemon and Super Smash Bros. games, but weak Switch demand forced the company to cut its shipments forecast for the gaming device. Dr. Mario World is targeting an early summer 2019 global release, including Japan and the United States.

The company will undershoot its target of releasing two to three mobile titles in the financial year ending March after saying on Thursday that title Mario Kart Tour needed more work and pushing the release date back to mid-2019. There's no shortage of addictive and profitable matching games on smartphones and, depending on how the game is styled, Dr. Mario World could end up likewise. Even so, Nintendo predicts that the company's overall sales will increase by about $1.4 million. Most recently was Dr. Mario: Miracle Cure on Nintendo 3DS in 2015.
