Nintendo to Release Mobile Versions of Popular Games

Mobile gamers rejoice!

In a meeting with investors Friday, Nintendo CEO Satoru Iwata  (TYO: 7974) said the company is partnering with DeNA developers in Japan in order to roll out a mobile-friend game by the end of the year, with plans for up to four games by 2017, Business Insider reported. This may seem like a long time to wait for some of the most popular video games of all time, however, the company has always favored quality over quantity, and will release games that are sure to not disappoint. 

"We are going to carefully select appropriate IP and titles for our smart device deployment," Iwata said, according to Business Insider. "If we were simply to port software that already has a track record on a dedicated game system, it would not match the play styles of smart devices, and the appropriate business models are different between the two, so we would not anticipate a great result."
