Nintendo has never been fond of such an idea, but we never know what the game-maker may be planning.
Nintendo recently reported one of its worst quarters ever. The company meant to sell nine million Wii U consoles, but managed to sell under three million.
Now, we’re hearing rumors that Nintendo may begin releasing free games on mobile devices such as the iPhone and Android devices. This is something Nintendo usually said it wouldn’t do. However, things change. Sometimes those things we said we would never do end up becoming necessary or viable.
According to the reports, the games will be free. They are also minigame-type things. We wouldn’t be surprised if they turn out to be more along the lines of advergaming. That’s a combination of advertising and gaming. For instance, imagine a simple, scaled back Mario Kart minigame that encourages you to purchase Mario Kart for your Wii U.
