Default Nintendo to release games on phone's and tablet

The move to mobile - long requested by the company's investors - will begin later this year, when the first new game apps are released.

Nintendo is partnering with massive Japanese mobile firm DeNA to aid in the company's app development.

Speaking in a press conference this morning, Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata confirmed Nintendo would take charge of the actual game development - the front-end, gameplay and UI that players actually see.

DeNA, meanwhile, will be working on supporting Nintendo by providing back-end services and server knowledge.

Nintendo and DeNA will also work together on a new membership service. This is the replacement for Club Nintendo that the company teased earlier this year.

This service will work across all platforms - PC, mobile, tablet, 3DS, Wii U and the upcoming NX - a new dedicated game system that Nintendo also announced.

Yep and Pokemon GO looks to be leading the charge. Looks fun for those with a smartphone.

A new Animal Crossing game has been confirmed to be in development along with I THINK a new Fire Emblem.

What I want more than anything to play on my phone is Pikmin and Mario Golf. Those would be tailor made for mobile phones!
