    [I]Super Mario Run[/I] and [I]Fire Emblem Heroes [/I]didn’t take off, but I sadly I think [I]Mario Kart Tour[/I] and especially [I]Pokemon Go[/I] have been bringing in cash. I could be mistaken though. Hope I am.

  3. So they stop support for vita and psp. Then they announce games coming to mobile. So now they will be making phone games? I have more respect for companies that produce a handheld device to their spec. Now they are at the whims of phone producers everywhere.

  4. Don’t you people have phones?

    I’ve only saw two kind of mobile game:
    1. made unplayable by touchscreen controls
    2. terrible cashgrab built around microtransactions and p2w.
