Nintendo has announced a new expansion to its mobile games business. Following the release of its latest earnings report, which brought news that Mario Kart Tour has been delayed, the company revealed a new partner and game: Dr. Mario World.
Very little has been shared about the game so far; we don’t have any screenshots, just the logo below. Nintendo describes it as an “action puzzle game” and says it’s due out early this summer. It’ll be free-to-play and available on both iOS and Android devices.
Dr. Mario World is being co-developed by LINE, a Japanese company known for a variety of things, including the development of games that have proven successful in Asian markets. Those include Disney Tsum Tsum and Cookie Run.
Nintendo had previously suggested it was looking for additional partners with which to develop mobile games as it seeks to make them a more prominent part of its business.
Nintendo is also continuing to move ahead with its plans for a Super Nintendo Land theme park, which it plans to have open in time for 2020. Additionally, the company has stated that the Mario animated movie will release in theaters sometime around 2022.
