Nintendo has taken some big steps into mobile gaming over the past year. Some people have speculated that Nintendo might even make their own hardware that will be compatible with mobile devices.
Recently at the Nintendo shareholders meeting, Nintendo executive Shinya Takahashi said that the company could create a physical controller for their mobile games and that it’s possible they “may also develop something new,” but they think they can create games without needing a separate controller.
Takahashi clarified that Nintendo wants to make an action game for mobile devices, but the company could do so with just a touch screen for control input. Their decisions are based on “what best embodies ‘Nintendo-like’ applications,” which means making games for children as well as seniors. “Releasing applications for non-Nintendo platforms is one challenge for us, and we will try all kinds of things as we continue this challenge.”
