“Nintendo is synonymous with great platformers, adorable characters and on-the-go gaming,” noted Igor Pusenjak, co-founder of Lima Sky. “Doodle Jump is a natural fit on Nintendo’s handhelds. We’re thrilled to bring the Doodler to audiences that have yet to meet him while bringing great new adventures to our existing fans.”
