Nintendo buys stake in Dwango, a mobile content company
Nintendo’s stock rose today after the company purchased a stake in Dwango Co. Dwango is a company that provides content through mobile phones. Stock rose 5.15% after the announcement and it’s the highest it’s been since August 6th. While it may seem like Nintendo is planning on entering the mobile market, it’s more likely that Nintendo plans on approaching Dwango to bring Miiverse apps to various smartphone platforms.
When the Miiverse app is available, will you be downloading it? We found out today that Miiverse for 3DS will not be able to send messages between friends or receive friend requests, so if the mobile app is able to do these things, it could be the best way to access Miiverse outside of the Wii U once it’s available.
