Nintendo is teaming up with Line Corporation to develop and run a new puzzle game for Android and iOS devices called "Dr. Mario World, the companies announced Thursday evening". In the first half of the fiscal year it sold a total of 5.07 million units, and now after the third quarter it added 9.41 million units, putting it up to a total of 14.48 million Nintendo Switch consoles sold worldwide.
Nikkei also revealed in its report that Nintendo is planning to release a smaller Nintendo Switch, which is something that has been rumored for some time. Pokemon: Let's Go, meanwhile, shifted 10 million, and Super Mario Party, which launched on October 5th, sold 5.3 million.
Mario Kart is now the most successful first-party IP the company has on the Switch, so a mobile app could prove wildly popular, if executed correctly.
Ultimate is also on track to become the best-selling entry in the series.
The game will be free with optional in-app purchases and is expected to hit about 60 countries and regions including Japan and the United States with its early summer 2019 release.

The Switch's game sales have been equally strong.
Nintendo's next mobile game, Mario Kart Tour has been delayed.
Sure, there's probably more all-encompassing, detailed video games than the classic Nintendo game, but is there anything that you could genuinely sit down for an hour, in a group on your own, and have as much fun playing?
Like all of Nintendo's mobile experiments, I'll at least scope it out.
