Tank Troopers

Here’s the European launch trailer for Tank Troopers (Nintendo 3DS – eShop), which is now available in Europe and North America:

Nintendo Mobile

Last year, Nintendo released its very first game on smart devices: Miitomo. And as of today, Nintendo already has three mobile games: Miitomo, Super Mario Run, and Fire Emblem Heroes. But there’s more: Animal Crossing, and a mysterious title… not to mention the 2 to 3 mobile games Nintendo is planning to launch during each fiscal year.

In other words, Nintendo isn’t quite done with mobile development… quite the opposite. Today, Nintendo updated its recruiting page, which now lists several job offers:

  • Game Director
  • Programmers
  • Customer Service Manager
  • Promotion Director

What’s more, those job offers are only for the Kyoto Development Center, while the previous recruitment drive was also the Tokyo office.
