Nintendo + Apple = the perfect chance to enter the mobile market
This is pure speculation as I am not an industry insider or employee of Nintendo of America.
Nintendo announced over the weekend coinciding with the Wii U Deluxe price drop of $50 to $299 on September 20th a change to the title of their Wii U Facebook page. The new page will be called Nintendo Console Gaming.
Many have speculated this was done to combine both the Wii (over 6 million likes) with Wii U (not even 1 million) but I think it could be much bigger than that.
This morning Nintendo was removed from the Nikkei (for all you non-financial gurus = stock exchange in Tokyo) and shares have dropped to an all time low. This holiday season they definitely have some stellar titles I'm excited about including Super Mario Bros 3D land and Donkey Kong's debut on Wii U but the company needs something bigger.
Does the change hint Nintendo maybe part of Apple's September event which is why it was done prior to Tuesday? Could the debut of Mario on mobile be arriving? I know Nintendo's 3DS is doing extremely well but Nintendo certainly could be filling their pockets with additional revenue from game downloads on other app stores. Could Apple's App Store be the beginning? Never say never. #nintendo #facebook #wiiu #wiiueshop #wii #apple #t
