It’s been reported that Nintendo wants to turn away from the mobile games market due to disappointing revenue numbers.

However the company is still focusing on karting games, with Kantan Games’ Dr. Serkan Toto claiming earlier this year that Mario Kart 9 is in “active development” and the title will feature a “new twist”.

In other news, former Nintendo Of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé has said fans shouldn’t get their hopes up about more Earthbound content.

Despite leaving three years ago, Fils-Aimé said Nintendo would be “thinking about how to make it current, thinking about how to make it bigger than just the, you know, the relatively small group of fans that desperately want to see Mother 3 or something next in the Earthbound series. And they just haven’t figured out yet the solution to that, or at least they haven’t been prepared to talk about it.”
