While we knew Nintendo was happy to hook-up its newest consoles to your smartphone, we thought that was only going to extend to social networking and shopping. Nope, it looks like the company is going a step further, with a report from Japan Times suggesting that the games maker is offering high-level conversion software to app developers “so they can produce smartphone games that can be played on Wii U.” A weak existing games library has been cited to as one of the main causes of Nintendo’s recent financial woes and it’s hoping that the addition of some popular titles will offer enough of a reason to invest in a dedicated games machine. We just hope it’s able to glean some fresh gaming gems — the first Angry Birds title launched in 2009.
