DeNA hopes to strengthen its gaming business and expand beyond its base in Japan, where it currently operates a range of services, including DeNA Shopping and Mobage, a social platform with more than 50 million users.
In a statement online, DeNA said it hoped the alliance would provide a high-quality gaming experience to loyal customers, adding that "only new original games optimized for smart device functionality will be created."
"As these consumers enjoy the unique kind of gameplay found only with Nintendo, they will have the opportunity to explore even more premium experiences on Nintendo's dedicated video game platforms," DeNA added.

In addition, DeNA announced that the companies hoped to develop a joint online membership service and launch it during 2015's fall season. This online program will be made available on smartphone devices, alongside Nintendo and PC console systems.
Anders Drachen, a data scientist at Aalborg University in Copenhagen, said that the joint venture seemed a boon for DeNa.
"Partnering with Nintendo seems like a win-win, given the strong brands the company is bringing to the table. It will be interesting to see how they translate the console/handheld experience to mobile," he told CNBC via email.
