Nintendo looking to run smartphone apps on Wii U?
It appears that Nintendo is desperate for new software on the Wii U. So desperate that it is distributing conversion software to app developers in hopes of making smartphone games that are playable on the Wii U.
According to a report from The Japan Times via Kotaku, this new initiative is in hopes that smartphone games can bolster the lacking library of Wii U titles, and in turn, boost console sales while consumers are waiting on Nintendo’s first party software to arrive.
It’s no secret that the Wii U has seen a rough couple of months in the sales department, but the lack of software for the new console certainly isn’t helping the cause. While these app-like games could increase the Wii U library, they are no replacement for the games that Nintendo fans are expecting.
A recent rumor reported that a new 3D Mario game is in the works for the Wii U, and is slated to arrive later this year. Alongside titles like The Wonderful 101, Bayonetta 2, Pikmin 3, and others, things should be looking better for Wii U owners in the months to come.
