This is the kind of game that could do really well as a smartphone game a casual puzzle game designed to make you want to come back later to keep playing. Super Mario Run was a little rocky due to its price to play to full game while Nintendos other two RPG titles might be too complicated for a casual player.

However, the World part of the games title throws us for a loop. Nintendos Mario games that end in World means they are platform games. In the source, however, the game is classified as Puzzle. The game will be co-developed by LINE and Nintendo.

In related news, the other mobile Nintendo game in the pipeline is Mario Kart Tour, a mobile version of one of Nintendos biggest game franchises, has been delayed and will be released this summer. We hear you, Nintendo, please take the time to make Mario Kart Tour a great game from the get go.
