Mario World Later This Year for Android

Banners of Nintendo's new game console Switch are pictured at its experience venue in Tokyo, Japan January 13, 2017.

It is Nintendo's second big delay in just one week.

While Nintendo lowered its sales estimates for the Switch, the company reported a profit jump of roughly 25 percent this quarter compared to the same quarter a year ago.

The stock closed up 2 percent ahead of the earnings.

South Korean developer, publisher, and distributor, NHN Entertainment, has partnered with Nintendo to create the title, that's due for a global release this summer. However, the company has tempered its Switch hardware sales predictions.


Fans of Nintendo's Italian plumber and his racing antics have been keenly waiting for the launch of Mario Kart Tour, the mobile version of Mario Kart.

Nintendo Co. has been diversifying its business.

The need to offset the fall-off in 3DS sales has led to speculation Nintendo will release another device such as a cut-price Switch. It was the first holiday season for the handheld system without a new Pokemon game, which was instead released on the Switch.

Together with Nintendo and LINE, NHN Entertainment, which has released and operated various online and mobile games, will take part in the development and operation of Dr. Mario World.

"Nintendo needs to expand the audience reach of the Switch", David Cole, founder and chief executive officer of DFC Intelligence, said in an interview this month.
