    I'm not sure how I feel about Miitomo but good that they're expanding to smartphones. Some games work really well with the touch screen. Anyone that dismisses mobile games controls has never tried Puzzle And Dragons, Monster Strike, etc. They are designed with the touchscreen in mind and it works. I trust nintendo well (they had 3 consoles with touchscreens)

    Thank goodness it's not a dumbed down, one-touch-control version of a beloved Nintendo franchise. "Super Mario Bros.: Go" (tap to jump endless runner), "Legend of Zelda: Pocket Edition" (freemium crapware) or "Donkey Kong Country Saga" (Bejewelled crap with different graphics) would literally make me cry.

    You are late to the non-party. Pokemon Shuffle is already available on Android devices.

    And Pokemon is a Nintendo IP.

    EDIT: You are still wrong. You meant developed. Genius Sonority developed Pokemon Shuffle and Nintendo published the game.

    The only "cancer" is your ability to spell.

    In the meantime I'm readily awaiting to see what Nintendo does with mobile. I play quite a few mobile games. I usually prefer it to carting around the stupid 3DS everywhere.

    Spelling really is not getting any better...

    I typically spend no money on the games I play on mobile. Most are free games that offer microtransactions that I don't purchase. Peggle Blast, Crossy Road, Pacman 256, Hearthstone, Halo: Spartan Strike, Rayman Adventures, Pocket Mortys and quite a few other games are all examples of mobile games I play on IOS that I haven't had to purchase a single microtransaction for to enjoy extensively, and were games I either got for free, or paid for ONE TIME to play.

    If you really can't be resilient enough to not throw your money at cheap mobile games with microtransactions, that's your problem. Not mine.

    i don't play the garbage at all i'd rather play REAL games. because of shitty mobile games nearly every game has some type of m$t now and it's even starting to infect steam as well. and now look even ninty has been infected too. cancer alright!

    What counts as a real game to you? is PACMAN not a real game? Is PEGGLE not a real game? Is HALO not a real game? Is HEARTHSTONE not a real game? You do realize that just because something offers alternative form of pay, you don't HAVE to buy it right? There's nothing making you buy content for these games. Nintendo isn't going to force you to buy anything for their games either, they don't force you in any of the semi-mobile games they've released on the ESHOP already.

    Just gross, why would you do that Nintendo? Don't pander to the lower denominator of gaming.
