Nintendo Co., Ltd. this week said it will enter a business and capital partnership with DeNA Co., Ltd. to develop and operate new game applications for mobile smart devices.
In addition, it will partner to build a new multi-device membership service for consumers worldwide.
The deal will allow both companies to develop and operate new game apps based on Nintendo’s IP, including game characters, for smart devices.
The titles are said to compliment current console and handheld games, as opposed to porting titles from the Wii U or Nintendo 3DS.
The online membership component will be accessible from smart devices, PC systems, and the Wii U. It will launch in fall 2015.
