Getting nostalgic for my old handheld games
I can't wait to see what they do. Making something for the phone that calls to the handheld games of the past could be really fun. Plus a Guardians of the Galaxy sounds good too.

Do you know why people are spending more time playing on their phones? Is it a specific game, a general switch away from PC games or physical consoles? A combination?  I see it in my household. I can pick up my phone to play a game for a few minutes  and now choose to do that more than taking the time to sit down and play a more involved console or PC game.

Re: not before?
I think one of the reasons for Nintendo to ignore the commodity mobile environment in the past, was because the company wanted to tie their product/service to a physical device. Another reason was that the commodity microprocessor was not as powerful in the past. However, everything has changed.

app vs. console
I wonder, if they go to recreate a Nintendo game on mobile, if the app (mobile) version will be a lot different than the console version. Like Minecraft is different on mobile than console; mobile is like a teaser or shorter/smaller version.

not before?
I'm surprised Nintendo hasn't come out with a mobile game. I'm not into electronic games but I just assumed they had. Did they think the competition in that space was too strong?
