It's hard to believe Nintendo was against developing mobile games for their franchises not too long ago. Super Mario Run was amazingly popular, and Fire Emblem Heroes has made bank through microtransactions.

On the other hand, those who enjoyed Sonic's more recent adventures were teased with Sonic Team's very own "Project Sonic 2017," bringing Modern Sonic not only back to Boost-style gameplay last seen in Sonic Generations, but also to darker and more serious storytelling of the pre-Colors games.
