Japan's Nintendo slashes Switch hardware forecast after bumper third quarter

Nintendo states that they've partnered with LINE Corporation to bring Dr. Mario World to mobile users in a news release post.

Beyond a logo and release window announced past year, Nintendo has not yet provided any further details about the Mario Kart Tour.

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

Nintendo has expanded into the realm of mobile titles in recent years, developing their own versions of some of their iconic franchises for smart phones.

That said, Nintendo isn't the only one making the game.

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.

The bad news, which isn't really that bad, is the new Mario Kart mobile game will be delayed until this summer. It will be an action puzzle game titled Dr. Mario World, and it's slated for a global release (including Japan and the US) sometime this summer.

Products like Pikachu dolls and other merchandise featuring Nintendo characters, such as a Monopoly board game starring Super Mario, are some examples of how the company hopes to cash in on its rich content. The game will be free with in-app purchases on iOS and Android.

Nintendo's shares, which fell 29 percent in 2018, have climbed 16 percent this year on optimism that the company will be able to stage a recovery.

The title is also the first major collaboration between Nintendo and messaging platform Line. The latest of these, Dr. Mario: Miracle Cure, hit the 3DS in 2015.
