Nintendo at E3 | No Mobile

The house that Mario built had been having a bit of trouble lately. The Wii U was a financial disaster and, while the 3DS is still going strong, it hasn’t made up for the issues behind their current gen consoles. Nintendo has made some concessions, such as games that have microtransactions on the eShop, and people were wondering if Nintendo would move away from console exclusive games, putting many diehard Nintendo fans in bouts of stress, especially since they’ve announced plans for five mobile games.

Well, we’ll have to wait until later, since Nintendo has decided E3 is specifically for dedicated games and isn’t an appropriate venue for mobile games. We’ll have to wait until later for more details.
