The first batch of Nintendo smartphone games are set to be free-to-play, according to co-developer DeNA.
The Wall Street Journal reports comments made by DeNA chief executive Isao Moriyasu said at an earnings briefing suggest that early games will instead rely on in-app microtransactions.
"Games currently in the pipeline are all free-to-play," he said. Additionally, Moriyasu also warned against referring to DeNA's first smartphone project with Nintendo, Miitomo, as a game, saying instead it's an entertainment feature, though in the fullness of time and with the addition of new features it could become such.
