nintendo-wii-u-southwest-airlinesIs Nintendo a fan of mobile? Not so much. The company acknowledges that the platform is important but apparently not important enough for them to create games for it, or at least not any of their major games, although we’ve seen the company license out Mario for Puzzle & Dragons: Super Mario Bros. Edition.

The game, we should note, was later brought over onto the Nintendo 3DS and it seems that it has given Nintendo some ideas, which is the idea of bringing other mobile titles onto the Nintendo 3DS console. In an interview with the Nikkei Asian Review (via GameRant), Nintendos’s president Satoru Iwata shared some of the company’s plans for mobile.

According to Iwata, “It is also possible to turn smartphone games from other software makers into 3DS-compatible games and offer them for relatively low prices. We intend to pursue a variety of options. Only those products and services that receive strong support from customers will survive.”

It is unclear as to what Nintendo means by that, but it sounds as though they are hoping to persuade mobile developers to port their games over onto the 3DS, so instead of Nintendo making the move to mobile, they want mobile to move over to Nintendo. Assuming we interpreted it correctly, it is an interesting proposition, but what do you guys think?
