Smartphone apps to come to Wii U

Post by Winters Thief Zero on Sun May 05, 2013 3:02 pm

My Nintendo News wrote:The Japan Times is reporting that Nintendo is trying to modify the Wii U so that smartphone applications can run on it. The
publication says that Nintendo has offered professional-use conversion
software to application developers so that they can get their
applications playable on the console. The company hopes that this will
provide a sales boost for the struggling console, as it will lead to an
increase in popular titles. Sources also state that Nintendo will also
focus on developing new applications internally.

This is a nice feature, but I likely won't use smartphone apps on the Wii U. I mean, it's my game console, not my phone. I don't see the point, honestly. But I may try one, just depends.

If it was cheap enough to run I'd probably use it. XD

I won't use the feature, However it could be good for the non gamers.
