Fortnite and PUBG are the latest cards to be dealt in the mobile gaming arena, with some saying that it brings another war on platforms to the foray.

It's with this that we see developers launching their games for a specific platform, in fortnite's case, it's with iOS and no word when other platforms like Android may see the game take shape.
With more and more AAA games making their way to mobile you can get a sense that there is an oncoming war for which mobile gaming platform game makers are going to release their mobile ports to first.
Taking shape over the next few years we should see a steady increase in AAA game developers, creating mobile versions of their games to capture an ever growing market of mobile gamers. In 2013 to 2017 the gaming revenue for mobile devices was 40.6 Billion dollars USD, which is a massive market to leave out. With figures like that, it's no surprise developers are getting on board.

Nintendo Switch has taken the market by storm by creating a fully fledged mobile/standard console which bridges the gap between your phone and gaming system. It's increased Nintendo's console sales to 11.8 million units sold in 2017 alone.
What do you think about the growth in mobile gaming? Do you think it's worthwhile or just a fad? Nintendo sure thinks it's a stayer.
