Wondering when you will finally get to see your favorite Nintendo franchises on Android? GameWoof has the answer for you, but it might not be the news you are looking for.
Some are already on Android thanks to emulators. Soon as Android gets the hardware to fully run Dolphin every Nintendo console/handheld and game up till the Wii will be available(excluding the 3DS) on Android(through emulation of course).
That's what I was thinking. As for official releases from Nintendo, I really doubt it in the near future. Nintendo uses their first party software to sell their hardware, and they see 3DS as their mobile device.
Dolphin ? This requires a sh*t ton of cpu power. My first gen i7 can't even handle it well.
What type of GPU do you have? That could be the problem possibly.
Yeah, the article talks about that.
Unless Nintendo is out of the hardware business that will not happen (officially). I doubt they'll bother with a PS Mobile kind of thing when their 3DS is selling like hot cookies.
Yeah, roms and for free.
uhhhhh Emulators?? With use of a PS3 controller? Yes, it is possible. And even better if you do it on a S3...
Officially? No. Unofficially? Yes.
Blasphemy! Maybe Halo or Killzone in 3DS, Wii U or gameboy. But Mario for Android forget it!
There are A LOT of nintendo games on android already lol. If nintendo was smart they would go the android/apple route, it would make them a lot of money. Nintendo isn't smart though.
That's what i've been saying tons of money to be made ;)
i love how both our comments got disagrees lol nintendo fans are living in an alternate reality
I think Nintendo relies on the exclusivity of games like mario, zelda and picmin to sell its own consoles. I don't think it makes sense for them to start releasing their games on other machines or devices. Unless they do a SEGA and pull out of the hardware business to go totally software.
Unless Nintendo drops out of the hardware race entirely, no chance in hell. Next.
Nintendo has started from time to time that when they are out they will destroy all of their properties. They don't want to lose any talent. Reason they keep making games is because of their hardware is made for their games. Developing Mario on PlayStation or Xbox or mobile won't be the same as developing Mario on Nintendo Systems.
Yeah, it would be a completely different logo on the box, impossible for it to work, the thing would just blow up X )
Yeah, I've read those statements by Nintendo. It was Iwata who made them, if memory serves correctly. However, I don't believe them for a second. I don't think Nintendo is anywhere close to being broke, far from it, they have loads of money and experience. But if the unthinkable were to happen, and Nintendo dropped out of the hardware race sometime, I'm 100% sure they would go third party, regardless of whatever Iwata said with his japanese pride. Why? Because Nintendo has a ridiculous, and I mean RIDICULOUS amount of IPs, many of them extremely valuable. If they went third party, all of these IPs would easily make them the biggest third party publisher that ever existed, casting a huge shadow that would eat whole the likes of Ubisoft, EA and Activision. That's saying something. Both Sega and Atari were behemots back in the day (especially Atari), and both went third party. I don't think Nintendo would be any different to them in that regard, should things go horribly wrong with the company (which is ridiculously improbable anyway :P ). Ah well, theorizing is fun, even if it's absolutely useless! ^_^
