Super Mario Run
Super Mario Run is the second game Nintendo will release on smart devices (in December on iOS), and the first one starring Mario. Shigeru Miyamoto is directly involved in this project, along with Takashi Tezuka, and other developers from Nintendo. But it turns out the game isn’t actually developed by Nintendo, but by… DeNA.
This tidbit comes from Serkan Toto, which is pretty knowledgeable when it comes to the smartphone market in Japan. He also explains that Nintendo is “only” taking care of Quality Assurance (most likely via its Mario Club subsidiary). Of course, the whole game is designed and directed by Nintendo (Miyamoto’s team), but it’s DeNa who’s doing the heavy lifting.
