I knew this was coming. I said it a long time ago. Nintendo needs to evolve.

Making games for smart phones isn't evolving.

Evolving, no. Sadly, it's more like succumbing.

Read the article, bro.

"Therefore, we would like to, instead of directly expanding our business on smart devices, focus on achieving greater ties with our consumers on smart devices and expanding our platform business."

Anything that they release on smart devices will be for the sole purpose of advertising their hardware and software. They aren't expanding their business onto IOS and Android, as stated in the article. If they do release games, they won't be full fledged releases.

It's not what you thought.

Title is misleading. Nintendo didn't confirm anything. The article states that Nintendo didn't give any specifics and Iwata did not confirm it directly.

Take this article down they didn't say that they said the opposite

NihonjinChick1508d ago

They technically didn't say anything specific. Here is the quote from Iwata, "I have not given any restrictions to the development team, even not ruling out the possibility of making games or using our game characters. However, if you report that we will release Mario on smart devices, it would be a completely misleading statement.”

Sounds to me like they will release apps featuring their characters but they won't be full fledged games. He is basically saying that you can expect to see something but don't expect to see the next installment of Mario on IOS.

"possibility of making games"

Sounds to me like we'll see some sort of Nintendo games on mobile platforms.

NihonjinChick1508d ago

@Pat_11_5, but the last part of his statement rules out the possibility of them releasing anything major. Don't expect a full fledged Mario game on your mobile device, you will be severely disappointed.

The author of this article should have chose a different title.
