Nintendo Should Plumb Mobile Profits

Nintendo is leaking profits—a certain plumber could help. To offset weak results from the company's traditional console business, Nintendo should start selling classic games on mobile devices, like those featuring Super Mario, the iconic Italian-American pipe fitter. (3DS, Industry, Mobile, Nintendo, Wii U)

Nintendo should enter the modern world of gaming. While retaining that familiar Nintendo look and charm. Instead of talking and demoing to us like it's 2002.

Precise control inputs and stellar design is what makes Nintendo great. Especially old Nintendo. Porting those classics to the mobile space would absolutely break what makes them classics in the first place. If you want portable versions of old Nintendo games buy a 3DS. Everyone else is. It's turning into a very successful console. Wait......what was this article about?

lol there was nothing precise about wii controls at all. and the design of wii u games is horrible and old they don't even use the touchpad in innovative ways with the wii u games.

Nintendo need to learn to plumb there own profits first. they need to make all nes,snes, and gba games on the vc and allow for all those games to be playable on the 3ds. unify the vc stores so we can play the classics on the go and you will get more sales Nintendo.

Lol....they profited last quarter even with the Wii U selling abysmally.

Sony did not and didn't have the balls to reveal how many Vita's were sold. Sony lost 14 billion Yen...around $139 million.

Licensing prevents them from releasing all of their games in their backlog. Also, if they released everything all at once, some of the more obscure titles would fade into irrelevancy. I sincerely doubt Ghosts 'N Goblins would have sold hardly at all if the big names were there to draw the attention of newcomers.

The only way a Nintendo game ends up on a mobile phone is if Nintendo themselves. So until they do that we should all not ask them to put there games on smart phones.

It's already been proven by Nintendo themselves that for long term business mobile apps aren't that viable.

I guess Nintendo doesn't like money ;)
