In Nintendo’s latest financial report, the company reconfirmed a number of upcoming Switch releases due out later this year.
“In our mobile business, we will focus on continuing to operate the applications that we have released to date, along with the application featuring Pikmin from Niantic that is planned for the second half of 2021, and work on ways to encourage more consumers to continue to enjoy playing these applications.”
Nintendo’s Shigeru Miyamoto previously shared some insight about what to expect from this new “walking” title:
“Niantic’s AR technology has made it possible for us to experience the world as if Pikmin are secretly living all around us. Based on the theme of making walking fun, our mission is to provide people a new experience that’s different from traditional games. We hope that the Pikmin and this app will become a partner in your life.”
In somewhat related news, Nintendo reported increased income from its stake in Pokémon GO. Read more about this.
