Nintendo may expect to have its first mobile game on the market before the year is through, but don't plan on seeing any hint of it at E3 2015.

Nintendo plans to have five games for smartphones and tablets on the market by the end of March 2017, the Japanese company has confirmed to investors today.

This follows with last year's announcement of the Surface Pro 3, having taken place on May 20th, 2014.
