Nintendo & DeNA team up for developing gaming app for smartphones

Today, Nintendo and DeNA announced that they have entered into a business and capital alliance.

They are planning to jointly develop gaming applications using Nintendo's intellectual property such as software and characters. They intend to open related services by this autumn.

Nintendo has powerful gaming titles and characters, and DeNA has know-how with the internet services and the development of games for smartphones. They will team up to try to make something "awesome" and introduce it to the global market.
