Nintendo Brings Mario, Zelda Games To Android Devices

Android users can spend more time playing online games using their phones. Why? Because game developer Nintendo is rolling out two of its popular games.

Nintendo rolls out Super Mario and Legend of Zelda games in Android devices. Avid fans of the games expressed excitement as news has surfaced that both franchises are heading to Android-powered devices.

Moreover, the Japanese powerhouse Nintendo is also planning something different this time. While the news of both games is making noise on the internet, Nintendo is negotiating Nvidia about its console.


Also, Nintendo is planning to license Wii and GameCube to Nvidia. What is clear right now is that Wii and GameCube will not be coming to Android devices this time.

However, Android-enabled Nvidia Shield set-top box will be available in China. Mobile gamers can also download and play several Wii games. This includes the Super Mario Galaxy, The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, the New Super Mario Bros., as well as the Punch Out.

With this, avid fans of Super Mario in China can now play and download the popular game. Thanks to Nvidia Shield, mobile gamers can play the iconic game as part of the world’s gaming market.

Meanwhile, in China, gamers can buy the Nvidia Shield for US$226 or equivalent to 1, 499 yuan. Nvidia said that its device is compatible with Baidu’s DuerOS.

The device features a conversational artificial intelligence system and entertainment options. Gamers could expect more games will be introduced to China by 2018, according to Nvidia.

What’s next for Nintendo’s Miyamoto?

Game creator Shigeru Miyamoto of Nintedo is the on responsible for much beloved games such as Super Mario, Donkey Kong, Legend of Zelda and many more titles will try to shake up the gaming world anew with his inkling to create something fresh.

In a CNN interview, the Nintedo honcho said through an interpreter that, “I am really keen to work on something really new, which eventually is going to be important for the future of Nintedo”. He also added that, “I would like to try to do something which might be able to expand the boundary or the definition of video games.”

The interview was done after Wired reported that Miyamoto is going to step down as the company’s director and producer responsible for the development of products and games.

Nintedo said that, “Miyamoto’s role at Nintendo is not changing. He will continue to be a driving force in Nintedo’s development efforts.”

The gaming revolutionary will have a senior role in the company and is responsible in helping carve the future of Nintedo’s hardware and software.

Miyamoto said that they have to “incorporate something new all the time.” He also added that, “everything starts from something small whenever we are trying to find out something new.”

The Nintendo Executive declined to give details on their upcoming project in depth. But he gave clues such as gyroscopes and wireless proximity communication as technologies that he would like to pursue.
