In a recent meeting, Nintendo revealed that they would be releasing two or three games this year. Also, in 2015, the company informed that were planning to release five games by March 2017, but only two had been launched so far.

Charlie Scibetta, their senior director of corporate communications, proved really excited of this new attempt of theirs.
The entire Nintendo team is excited about the mobile gaming platform. They took all the time necessary to understand how they work and now they are ready to bring out the best games. They have always made sure they provide their games with the most optimal of control schemes. In their opinion, the best way to bring a game to life is through specialized hardware that makes the control of the game easier and helps the players transpose themselves in the gameplay.
The low performance of Super Mario Run and Pokémon Go did not discourage Nintendo. They suggested that they have prepared more games and more surprises that would not disappoint any gamer. Firstly, the release of Nintendo Switch will most surely strike a hit.
Also, the mobile version of the game from the Fire Emblem franchise, Fire Emblem Heroes. As proven before, this is a field where they do not have much experience, but this particular game might help them make a glorious entrance on the mobile game market.
