Nintendo: “No Plans” For Games on Mobile

Yesterday, Nikkei reported that Nintendo had intentions of releasing mini-games and demos on mobile devices in an attempt to gain new customers, however, Nintendo has squashed that flat!

Endgadget is reporting that Nintendo has struck that down quickly, stating “Nikkei’s article contains information previously stated by Mr. Iwata during past press conferences, including statements which relate to Nintendo’s willingness to make use of smart devices to promote our products. However during such past announcements Mr. Iwata has also stated that Nintendo’s intention is not to make Nintendo software available on smart devices and as such, we can confirm that there are no plans to offer mini-games on smartphone devices. “

Retro City Rampage Invading 3DS In February

While most of the world has enjoyed Retro City Rampage, Nintendo-only fans have not yet. Well, that looks to change as Vblank Entertainment is bringing the popular title to 3DS in February sometime and will cost $9.99.

It will be re-vamped due to the lower processing power and lower screen resolution, so there won’t be 3D support and features a more zoomed-in screen. However, it does come with the Retro+ Enhanced Graphics and all other content available for the game.
