Iwata explains again why Nintendo isn't interested in mobiles

Mr. Iwata explained again why Nintendo isn’t interested in the mobile market and why they’re only making games exclusively for their consoles. You can read the quote below:

“The smartphone market is probably more competitive than the console business. We have had a console business for 30 years, and I don’t think we can just transfer that over onto a smartphone model.”

“Our games such as Mario and Zelda are designed for our game machines so if we transfer them into smartphones as they are, customers won’t be satisfied. If customers aren’t satisfied with the experience, it will decrease the value of our content.”
