THIS major new Nintendo game is skipping Switch”

A smaller version of the Nintendo Switch might have no removable Joy-Cons.

Nintendo released their third quarter and fiscal year-to-date earnings today. Switch software sales are impressive, with Super Smash Bros. That in itself brings problems, as you'd lose compatibility with games that require single Joy-con controls, like Super Mario Party.

However, they can look to Legendary Nintendo games maker Shigeru Miyamoto for some crumbs of comfort.

Nintendo delays its very first Mario Kart game for mobile

Nintendo continues to be hugely success in the games console market thanks to sales of the Switch console. Nintendo had previously partnered with Line for sticker packs in that app but had relied on a partnership with DeNA for games like Super Mario Run and Miitomo. Nintendo released a top 10 list of the best-selling first-part Switch titles as well.

Nintendo has also sold over one million Labo Variety Kits, 2.08 million copies of Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, and 1.08 million copies of Octopath Traveler.

Since its March 2017 launch, the publisher has now pushed five 10 million plus selling games. Fans enjoying those games will have a good, long time before seeing them fade away. With portability in mind, the obvious thing to cut would be the dock that allows the system to be tethered to a Tv and used as a traditional console. Nintendo entered the mobile business to create more opportunities for consumers to engage with Nintendo IP and reach audiences beyond its dedicated video game platform business.
