"The doctor is in!"
The game will be free-to-play, although the description confirms that in-app purchases will also be available.
The Super Mario Bros. movie will star the famed plumber Mario Mario, and will be produced by Chris Meledandri, Founder and CEO of Illumination, and Shigeru Miyamoto, Representative Director, Fellow of Nintendo.
It's being co-developed by Japanese app and Internet service company LINE, which suggests that rather than just a straight puzzle game Dr. Mario World will feature, as the name implies, some fairly involved social options.
"Dr. Mario World is targeting an early summer 2019 global release, including in Japan and the United States".
Nintendo has confirmed that the launch of Mario Kart Tour has been pushed back to this summer. The trio has released and operated various online and mobile games and NHN Entertainment is reportedly responsible for content development in the new game partnership.
Nintendo was once fiercely against releasing mobile games, but as fate would have it, this would prove a somewhat successful and lucrative endeavor for the company.
Games like Fire Emblem Heroes and Dragalia Lost have been relatively well received.
