Nintendo's new, crossplatform membership service will likely launch this fall

Polygon:
Nintendo and partner DeNA are hoping to release Nintendo's new cross-platform membership service this fall and an "evolved" version of Nintendo's loyalty program is under development, according to DeNA's latest financial report which was released today.

In March, Nintendo announced plans to partner with DeNA to release smartphone games potentially using Nintendo's existing properties. Earlier this week, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said that the company would release about five phone games with DeNA by March 2017.

The story is too old to be commented.

Not many interesting things in Dena Financial Report apart the pages with Nintendo Alliance: "First game app to be released this calendar year"

That means till end of the year? (end 2015) or end of fiscal year? (March 2016)

"Calendar year" means January 1 - December 31.

So will digital content still be tied to hardware or are they going to fix that mishap

Believe it or not, the content is actually tied to your account, but your account is tied to the hardware, which is still just as idiotic. They really need to fix that.

For the one millionth time just give us a proper account system. One that doesn't require you to go through technical support to recover lost games. I want to be able to have my content on more than one system and not have to do a dumb transfer. Virtual Console should be universal across every device. This membersip service is their last chance to win me over, I prefer going digital when I can and I would like to see alot more competence on their part with this.

If not I'm sticking with retail.

I hope they do a PS+ thing, minus paywalls for online. Also, just conform to standard account practices like Sony, and Microsoft.
