Nintendo making mini-games for smartphones

Nintendo might be going mobile, but not in the way many people are calling for. Japan’s Nikkei business daily reports that the company is planning to leverage smartphones as a platform for marketing videos and, more interestingly, free mini-games designed to drive new users to Nintendo hardware.

The mini-games are reportedly designed to make players understand the appeal of Nintendo’s software in a short period of time and convince them to purchase the full experience elsewhere.

I, uh…I really don’t know if this will work out or not.
