Nintendo and mobile gaming seem like a lucrative prospect for the users out there. Though it is true that the age old game developer has decided to release games for iOS and Android users, there is a bit of a snag to this news.

First of all, let me state down the good stuff. Nintendo has agreed to experiment with a multitude of game releases for the potential mobile gaming audience. According to Nikkei; the Japanese business publication, Nintendo will be releasing these games as part of the promotion campaign for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS titles.

The downside to this news, which would have been otherwise made our day, is that Nintendo is going to release these games as demo version of the actual games on Nintendo 3DS, and whatever platform they are planning to eventually release the game for.

These free mini games are a great idea, but I do think that they should release the full version of classic Super Mario Bros. Besides, it has been a very long time, and perhaps this game should be completely free for classic Nintendo fans. We have spent our childhood growing with Mario and we deserve to have the same stuff made available to us in our adulthood.

If Nintendo were to release the free version of Classic Super Mario Bros, I can see the kids from today’s generation playing it. In a way, the company will be establishing a legacy of Mario franchise lovers all over the world.

As for mini games and mobile gaming market, Nintendo is said to be a latecomer to the industry. Experts, such as Chris Kohler from Wired Magazine, think that the company is not realizing the potential of online and mobile gaming opportunities. While the developers behind these games are sticking close to the “tradition”, they are also missing a finely constructed gaming ecosystem.

President Reggie Fils- Aime of Nintendo America recently said, “We’re also doing a lot of experimentation of what I would call the little experiences you can have on your smartphone and tablet that will drive you back to your Nintendo hardware. It’s largely going to be much more marketing activity-oriented, but we’ve done little things where there’s some element of gameplay — a movement, a shaking, something like that.”
