Nintendo Co. this week said it will release the mobile game Miitomo to devices in Mar. 2016.
Miitomo will allow users to design their own avatars and is said to encourage people to share things about themselves.
Nintendo said it will release all five titles by Mar. 2017.
In Mar., Nintendo entered a business and capital partnership with DeNA 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.
A new membership service called Nintendo Account, a cloud-based data service to connect hardware, PC, and mobile device accounts, to be used to transfer data between hardware.
