In November of 2015, Nintendo and DeNA announced their joint venture, Nintendo Systems. The two companies have collaborated on multiple titles since, such as Super Mario Run, Mario Kart Tour, Pokémon Masters and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp. To further reinforce their business and offer consumers more value-added services, the two companies launched their Nintendo Systems website earlier this month.
Computer engineer Tetsuya Sasaki is the president of Nintendo Systems, having joined the Development Division of Nintendo in 1995. He is behind numerous titles, like The Legend of Zelda: Windwaker, Animal Crossing: Wild World, Wii Sports and Mario Kart DS.
DeNA is a mobile game publisher that specializes in operating, managing and developing games for mobile devices. Established in 2001, the company released its first title in 2004, launching many other successful titles since. They have primarily developed for iOS and Android, with such popular games as Blood Brothers, Final Fantasy Record Keeper and Ninja Royale. DeNA also launched the social platform Mobage in 2007, which includes popular titles like Rage of Bahamut, Patience, and Quiz RPG.
Nintendo is a Japanese giant in the industry, being both a game developer and publisher. Nintendo has produced numerous gaming consoles, like the GameCube, Nintendo DS, and Switch, as well as several gaming franchises, such as Super Smash Bros., The Legend of Zelda and Mario Kart among others. They have even expanded into the mobile gaming market, with popular games like Super Mario Run and Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp.
Thanks to the joint venture between DeNA and Nintendo and their combined efforts, users have been presented with the Nintendo Systems website, aiming to deliver Nintendo entertainment more conveniently and access more value-added services. With both DeNA’s knowledge of technology and Nintendo’s creativity and ingenuity, users can expect more surprises from the two companies.
