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.”

What do you guys think? Would you like to see special mobile hardware from Nintendo? Would you rather they just stick with developing games? Leave your thoughts in the comments below!

Writing is half of my life. Video games make up the other half. I decided to put these two hobbies together and join Gamnesia back in 2015. I spend most of my time working at a retail store and paying off my student debt. When I'm not getting stressed about the thousands of dollars I owe my loan providers, I play tons of video games (which just puts me into more debt). I'm also currently writing a novel in what little spare time I have. It's a story I've been wanting to write for a while, but I don't want to talk about it until I have most of it completed. Any Gamnesia-related inquiries may be sent to [email protected] Feel free to follow my personal Twitter if you want (@Pindlo). I mostly just retweet things.
