    Well good, if Mario were to be developed on Smartphones, it might as well be stupid.
    Most likely to just be a puzzle game in my thoughts.

    :arrow: You know what this link is, its the source.

    *EDIT: Plus, I agree with the comment, in the comments in the source, smartphone games get pretty boring later on. I was a freak for temple run lol, and later on, it made me fall asleep, and got bored of it.

    $0.99? The president might have missed the fact that big game developers such as Electronic Arts and Square Enix ported their games to smartphones, and put price tag between $7 - $17 (depending on title).

    Glad to hear Mario isn't going the same way Sonic went.

    People were expecting a $0.99 Mario game?

    Still, I guess it's encouraging to hear this. I'm glad to know Nintendo won't just smartphone it in.

    For all intents and purposes, Sonic The Hedgehog 4 Episodes 1 and 2 are thoroughly enjoyable, solid classic titles - this is a chit-chat about mobile games, which in the case of Sonic happen to be good.

    Well, I wasn't expecting anyone to think there would be one.

    Just my 2 cents.

    Don't think anyone expected a 99 cent version or even a mario game on a smart phone. Just these muppets who think everything needs to be on a smartphone just because it can be

    I kind of agree. It wouldn't make any cents.

    I always thought Nintendo wanted to nickel and dime their customers, but apparently not literally.

    This is what I usually see in Mario games: "Only 20 more minutes of reading until you can actually play"

    Are you kidding me? Are you so witless that you didn't notice my misleading (joke) post.
    I hope you get better soon.

    But what about a 50-Cent Mario game?

    That would make sense, but my 2 cents is going to the thread. Not this nonexistent game.

    I don't see a big deal I mean the only fun smartphone games are ports and games run through an emulator.

    Well, it's better than having to wait an hour before you can press a button to watch yet another hour-long cutscene.

    Truth! Yeah! I hate when you end up playing a game, waiting a rather long time to play, only to find that you got to sit through a movie rather than playing a game! I really think that RPGs especially need to give you an option to skip a cutscene. Especially if you've already seen it once or twice!
