Tapinator is also pleased to provide the following timing updates for some of its most significant upcoming Full-Featured global game launches: Big Sport Fishing 2017 - November 10, 2016 -- The freemium sequel to Big Sport Fishing, a game with 15 million player downloads. The US fishing market is larger than the hunting market: $41.7 billion vs. $31.8 billion. Given the quality of our game, this statistic and the success of hunting games on mobile, we believe this to be a significant opportunity for the Company.
Solitaire (game named to be disclosed closer to launch) - December 1, 2016 -- Solitaire is the most popular category of card games on mobile and, recently, several themed solitaire games have proven out the category's top grossing potential. Our new solitaire title will combine the classic game with a theme that we believe will resonate widely, across age groups and geographic regions.
ROCKY - December 8, 2016 -- The ROCKY film series has grossed over $1 billion at the worldwide box office. This freemium game features collectible fighters (including the original motion picture characters), multiplayer fights, exciting training sessions, and best-in-class engagement/monetization mechanics.

Nintendo Co. Ltd. (OTC: NTDOY) News: In gaming, there are often many controversies about final products being less than what was promised. We see this every year, but most recently a prominent example was No Man's Sky, where the final game delivered only a portion of what players thought they would be getting. Strangely, however, we're now seeing the exact opposite happen with Nintendo's Pokémon GO Plus peripheral. It's something that actually does more than was advertised. Past that, Pokémon GO Plus is flat-out doing things that Nintendo specifically said it wouldn't do. Now, only after it's on sale (and mostly sold out) is that being made clear.
