Nintendo says it has no plans for iOS, other platforms

Updated

Nintendo President Satoru Iwata has indicated that Nintendo will not be bringing any of its games to hardware platforms manufactured by other companies. In responding to a question following a recent investors meeting, Iwata stated that “Nintendo’s software and hardware are the same thing,” and that “[o]ther companies don’t share Nintendo’s values or traditions when it comes to creating devices.” Although Iwata did not specifically mention Apple, iOS devices or the App Store, the general statement is that Nintendo only plans to release its titles for hardware created by the company itself, maintaining its current closed development model.
