Isn't that great news or what? One of the computer games greats, both hardware and software wise, has finally relented and acknowledged the future of gaming the mobile way. Nintendo just announced an alliance with Japanese mobile games company DeNA hours ago.
What all these means is yet to be seen but it's good news that Nintendo pledge that there will not be any direct ports but instead will develop software from the ground up to suit the mobile experience. I believe them considering how well they did for the Wii games. It would be interesting to know how they will integrate (yes, I suspect they will to sell more hardware) these together with their range of consoles.
Am looking forward to play Mario on my mobile device soon!
