Nintendo confirms they’ll go mobile, first title will be Super Mario Galaxy 2 port

Nintendo sure surprised everyone with their last announce that the company will enter the mobile gaming competition, but the real jar-dropping news has been unveiled just a few days later: the first title that will be released will be a port of the Wii title Super Mario Galaxy 2.

Not much has been revealed aside for the announcement itself, except for the fact that it will feature mobile controls, including the ability to shake the Smartphone/Ipad to make Mario spin – and improved graphics over the Wii version.

Nintendo’s president Satoru Iwata had this to say:

“Coming from myself it may sound silly, but the reason we picked Super Mario Galaxy was how well it tied with the already existing brand of popular mobile cellphones. Here at Nintendo we firmly believe that a product’s name, either for a software or a console, has no impact whatsoever on how people will perceive it and should be assigned randomly for the sake of silliness. Stay tuned for more infos on our next console, codenamed NX and with a planned title of WiiU2².”
