Mario won’t ditch consoles for smartphones, says Nintendo’s Miyamoto

While Miyamoto’s remarks don’t come as a surprise, it’s worth noting that mobile games like Super Mario Run and Dr. Mario World have struggled to match the success of Nintendo’s console titles like Mario Kart 8 for Wii U and Switch, which have grossed over $3 billion. However, it’s important to note that Miyamoto did not address other Nintendo mobile properties like Animal Crossing Pocket Camp and Fire Emblem Heroes, which have been successful in their own right.
