When Nintendo announced it was making games for mobile platforms, fans were eager to get their hands on the first release.

As stock value plunges, Nintendo now says it has no plans to bring any DLC to Super Mario Run

Super Mario Run has, to put it lightly, not fared well in its first five days. The game is saddled with a 2.5-star rating on Apple's App Store with over 50,000 reviews, and Nintendo's share price has plummeted over 15% as investors hoping the mobile title would become a major new profit engine for the company began to react.

Nintendo currently plans to bring Super Mario Run to Android, but hasn't specified a release date. The game is technically free, but in reality, the one $10 in-app purchase is required as it is the only way to access the actual content of the game.

Nintendo Plans To Release Five Mobile Games By March 2017 With The First Title Landing By The End Of This Year

At long last, Nintendo is loosening the reins on its intellectual property and developing games for devices that don't bear the company brand. Yesterday in the yearly financial results briefing, the video game giant outlined plans for bringing five games to mobile platforms by March of 2017, with the first title available by the end of this year.

This is great news for fans of Nintendo's many storied game franchises, and the news gets even better.
