I really doubt there's a chance that Nintendo will ever release anything substantial for mobile until they either partner up with something or create their own device that's similar.

Maybe they should be doing one of those 2 things. For me at least phone games never compete with console games for the reason that I'll never play phone games indoors. Do people do this? I mean I can understand playing tablet games indoors.

I'd guess Nintendo games on smartphones would be a lot better than most of what's currently out there. I have over 100 phone games downloaded and there's probably 10 or so titles Nintendo could release that would be an automatic buy for me. And I'd be buying all their sequels. Again I'd probably agree releasing on tablets could be constituted as competition for their own console but I doubt the same is true for smartphones.

I think Nintendo releasing companion games on mobile devices could work. Not a big full retail experience you'd see on the 3DS, but smaller spinoff or mini game type stuff. They have enough franchises to make it work. Even licensing out their IPs to a developer to do a reskinned version of an existing game could be a way to get their foot in the door

It's just not something I see as interested in doing. I could see them doing something in a similar vein to the PlayStation Now in the future (possibly), but I don't think we'll ever see them develop mobile games unless it's on their own terms. Maybe release classics, but even then, probably a stretch.

That would probably just lead to a lot of subpar products similar to all the junk that companies like Square and Capcom have let happen. Say what you will about Nintendo, but they generally keep their own IPs to a certain level of quality. The only franchise they tend to pimp out to an extreme is Mario.

I think they'd be a big enough player (probably no.1) if they decided to put all their properties on mobile that they'd be able to dictate terms to anyone.

Except for the format and hardware, which is a obviously a big term for them as seen with their dispute with Sony way back in the pre-N64/PS1 days.

But honestly, it's kind of a moot argument anyway. It's like saying, 'Well, if Microsoft decided to go into the canoe business, they'd clean up.' You can look at from every which angle, but it's not something that's realistically going to happen, at least not anytime in the foreseeable future.

I think Nintendo are better placed to clean up here than anyone and particularly more so than Microsoft in the canoe business lol. If it was any other company in Nintendo's position with all those properties it wouldn't be a moot point. It would have been fully discussed, analysed, P&L projected & concluded one way or other by now. There are some crap companies making crap games who are making a lot of money on phone games at the moment. A sensible business properly considers all opportunities.

Yeah, but it's not any other company, it's Nintendo. And I mean, it's so much that I disagree with you (though I think mobile as a gold mine is not quite as solid as most), but it's just sort of something that I don't see much value in discussing, because it's really not something I see any possibility of happening until Nintendo finds a way to do so in their own way on their own time.

I don't mean that as a slight to you, by the way, Iceman. Rereading what I wrote makes me think it comes off that way, but it's about subject, not the subjector.

You're probably right in the likelihood of it happening.

The value in discussing it is because the possibility itself can be fun to discuss for certain people (like me). This whole forum is based on far out speculation on far out film properties, not just things that have been formally announced or have a 90% probability of happening. And I'll continue to put out possibilities of improving Nintendo's situation going forward, especially in ways that will have a big benefit to me, in the hope that a Nintendo exec's kid out there one day reads it and complains to his/her daddy/mommy.

Maybe. I think something like Warioware which is literally a collection of 10 second games could work quite well on that platform

More on what Iwata had to say.


Iwata clarifies: Nintendo is not done with consoles

(8 hours ago)
142




Last week, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata mentioned that the company was rethinking its business strategy following poor sales of the Wii U console. Speculation that Nintendo would cease building consoles immediately followed, but Iwata assures fans and investors that this is not the case.

"The spread of smart devices does not spell the end of game consoles. It's not that simple," Iwata stated. "It doesn't mean that we should put Mario on smartphones." Instead, Iwata sees the new ubiquity of mobile devices as a platform that Nintendo could and should tap to promote its console releases. Here he cites GungHo Online Entertainment's Puzzle And Dragons as an example, pointing out that the 3DS incarnation of the game sold more than a million copies in its first month of existence, despite Puzzle And Dragons being available as a free-to-play offering on all manner of mobile devices.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Iwata remains convinced that good games can sell consoles, regardless of how technologically impressive they might be - though modern customers need more convincing than earlier generations. To that end, Nintendo is reportedly pouring money into research and development, and "Mr. Iwata promises to surprise game players in the future."

Um, Layton isn't a Nintendo IP. It may be associated with their platform, but it's developed and published by Level-5 (with Nintendo helping the overseas publishing on some of the games). They make games for Sony as well and this gen, that will extend to MS, To the best of my knowledge. Nintendo doesn't actually develop any games for mobile platforms, nor do they publish or license out their IPs for others to do something with.

Well I never really said they(Nintendo) own it. I said they have the creator that makes games for them of which there is a huge series of them on their 3ds and prior to it and they have them do that often . and most of the time that's what people remember as what's said in that review and their not the first nor will they be the last.

But yeah they are on other systems. My bad if I made it seem that way. wasn't trying to. Just saying what most know that has shown up on the system from most people saying it.

I didn't claim Nintendo has started doing that already them selves ether.

I don't think there's really a maybe about it. Have you actually played a lot of the stuff that Japanese publishers have released on mobile? I'm not saying there's no good anywhere there, but the reason the things are such big moneymakers is because they're cheap as hell to make, and boy, do they show. And the ones that aren't are generally burdened by microtransitions. To create something worthwhile, you have to put some real effort into it, and I think Nintendo would rather just do that with their own handheld device.

I won't lie... I'd TOTALLY buy a Nintendo Phone with exclusive NOS games and whatnot.

For sure.

It could sync up with your WiiU/3DS/2DS and the Miiverse... That'd be pretty sweet. Mimic what the Playstation app does right now on my Galaxy SIII.

UK retailer price cuts: Wii U Premium for 180, Xbox One 410

(9 hours ago)
38

Amazon UK and Argos both dropped the Wii U Premium to 180 this week, and if that's a familiar-sounding figure it's because it matches the launch price of the Wii. Both retailers have the 32GB Wii U model, complete with Nintendo Land, priced 120 less than the 300 Nintendo itself is asking for, and what most retailers sold the Wii U Premium for at launch.

Nintendo UK has several Premium SKUs at 250, including the better value New Super Mario U bundle, and Amazon and Argos more or less price match those bundles. There's been no official word, but perhaps these cuts indicate that Nintendo UK wants to phase out the Nintendo Land bundle, just as Nintendo of America did last year.

In contrast, Zavvi taking 20 off the Xbox One is a fresher development for Microsoft's console. Europe's Day One editions of the Xbox One came with free copies of FIFA 14 or Forza 5, so it's arguable 410 better reflects Zavvi's game-less bundle. In any case, other retailers aren't following suit at this stage, so we're not sure what to make of it yet.

The Xbox One enjoyed a strong start at retail, racking up 3 million worldwide sales before the close of 2013. The Wii U reached 3 million shipped in a similar time frame, but that early success dried up in 2013, and Nintendo slashed the console's fiscal year forecasts recently from 9 million to 2.8 million - if that figure proves accurate, Nintendo will have shipped 6.2 million units by March 2014.

Mighty Bomb Jack leaps to Wii U Virtual Console this week


(52 minutes ago)
4

An unexpected blast from the past hits the Wii U Virtual Console on Thursday in the form of NES cult classic Mighty Bomb Jack.

Originally based on an arcade game of the same title, Mighty Bomb Jack is a relatively standard NES-era platformer. The game's protagonist uses the titular bombs as his main weapon, but most of the game focuses on precise jumping, seeking hidden treasure and that particular brand of video game weirdness you only see in Japanese games translated to English during the late 1980s.

Nintendo did not announce Mighty Bomb Jack's upcoming re-release, leaving it instead for fans to find on the Virtual Console. As a result, we can't say for certain what price will be attached to the game, though if it falls in line with most other Virtual Console NES releases Mighty Bomb Jack should feature a $5 price tag.
