    Given that we have this recent influx of Nintendo games on smart devices and how awesome DS games look on a standard Android launcher, is it time that Nintendo or some other developer made a dedicated Nintendo styled launcher? I don't own a 3DS but at this point my phone has now become my current Nintendo portable. I'm actually making a game focused user on my Moto G3 for the sake of seeing how games would look via TV Launcher. I'll try to post pics as soon as I get time. As always, feel free to share your thoughts with me :)

    So, here's something I was able to come up with over the course of last week.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I'm using TV Launcher. Some of these icons were made by other people a while back. Most of the icons I am using come from cropping game logos from their box arts. This launcher works perfectly with a controller. I use my MOGA controller in B-mode to navigate this menu. I have the following sections created

    * Nintendo Mobile: For Nintendo mobile releases and a few Android titles that are usually associated with Nintendo portables (hence Yo-Kai watch.
    * Nintendo DS
    * GameBoy Advanced'
    * Google Play Games
    * Media - YouTube and Google Play Music goes here
    * Utilities

    My next goals will be to...

    1) add web links to the Splatoon match maker, Miiverse, Play Nintendo and My Nintendo. I might stick it all in a section called Nintendo Network

    2) Finish up my game icons

    3) Background music for my launcher. -and ONLY my launcher.


    My wishlist for this project includes...


    - Hope that someone would release a Wii Classic Controller styled Bluetooth controller with a phone grip (That would really complete the "Nintendo feeling". I guess I could simply use a Wii U Pro Controller but I cant seem to find a Smartphone clamp that would work well. Also I have a feeling that the pro controller is bigger than my MOGA which doesn't help with portability.

    -Also hoping that someone would copy the 3DS or Switch keyboard and make a Android keyboard that looks like one of them.
