Really, who are "mobile gamers"? Cause i can only imagine those gamers as people who play in very short spurts of time every once in a while. So... that's the only kind of experience that can work on mobile. But, as more games appear, theres less room for new ones.
As for DmC, the controversy was well earned. I love the games Ninja theory makes and i loved DmC. But, they spit in the face of the fans. They made their own bed. If anything it's a case study of how to not insult fans of the original work and embrace them instead. It was pure developer arrogance that created the "controversy".
