There’s a lot of attention on Mario right now with the success of the Nintendo and Universal co-produced feature film, The Super Mario Bros. Movie now in theaters. With this heightened visibility, many are thinking about Nintendo’s future and wondering where the mustachioed mascot will go from here. 

One thing is certain though: he isn’t triple-jumping his way towards more mobile games, and this is a very good thing for both Mario and his fans.

Nintendo no longer needs Mario on mobile (wahoo!)

Recently, Mario’s creator and self-proclaimed “Mario’s mom,” Shigeru Miyamoto, explained that in addition to a new Mario game being in development (shocker) that the plumber’s future slate won’t be focusing on mobile games going forward. “Mobile apps will not be the primary path of future Mario games.” said Miyamoto in an interview with Variety (opens in new tab). While some might not be happy with this statement, it is a smart choice to get the focus of Mario game development away from smartphones and zeroed in on Nintendo gaming systems.
