    They are definitely going to go the candy crush route with iap, I wonder how bad it will be, I think I remember the average to beat candy crush (without relying completely on luck) was around $200.

    Is this the same LINE that operates that chat client and WebToon?

    Yes, it's the very same. They've done some collaborations with Nintendo in the past where they've made and offered Nintendo game sticker sets for their chat service. Last time I used it (which was years ago), they had Super Mario Bros., Animal Crossing, Pokemon, Kirby, and Splatoon sets.

    Man, it's cool we got a puzzle game but really would have preferred Puzzle League...

    Nintendo starting to anounce more mobile games than switch games. The switch really needs some new exclusive titles instead indies and ports

    Just use magisk hide. Other than Pokémon Go I haven't had any issues with their games.

    Until now, Nintendo's Mobile Games were quite fun. For a few minutes at least. Or weeks in the case of FE:H. Of course, that's just what I think.
    Also, here's hoping for a world wide launch of a mobile game. Never thought, I had to say that...

    Okay...I'm interested. Not too happy for it being free (honestly: I like paying up front rather than all this DLC and upgrade packs everywhere), but I think I'll manage. I'll certainly try this one. :)

    You say that as if F2P games are the only ones they release, and as if they haven't released other F2P mobile games previously. Nobody charges more than a couple bucks for any mobile game anyway.

    Developing these games alongside their standard ones is a smart move for Nintendo. Seemingly transitioning from PC to the mobile space for one of their IPs was a dumb move by Blizzard, for contrast.

    I don't see how that's a accurate comparison.

    Dr. Mario seems like the perfect mobile game (casual, puzzle, etc), whereas Diablo is the exact opposite.

    (Also, Dr. Mario is kinda already on switch, with NES online, but that doesn't really count)

    tbh Dr. Mario is probably the most perfect series for Nintendo to have jump over to phones.

    Way too little content to justify a full price release, probably not enough interest to really get a lot of sales either, but as "The Latest Mobile Nintendo Game" it might do alright, hopefully.

    I'll give it a go.
