Game info: Nintendo games available on a mobile phone
For hardcore game fans, the concept of play Nintendo games on your mobile phone is as fascinating as it is unlikely, with the Japanese giant flatly refuses to license its titles or participate in the development of third-party hardware. Indeed, it seemed that we have to wait until the rumor that both Nintendo phone before they had come to take Mario obtain cellphone.
Now, however, it seems that all may change with the advent of new mobile MC100 Fly, the first handset to support both Java games and classic Nintendo game platforms, including NES, SNES, Game Boy and Game Boy Color.
While this does not exclude, of course, in all three dimensions, for example, in GoldenEye N64 until Super Mario Galaxy Wii, there is still an incredibly rich heritage of the old skool titles with the likes of Mario, Zelda and Metroid still holding that make their mobile Bowman.
What's more, to ensure that games can be enjoyed as intended by the owners of the MC100 special gambling are keys on the top of the phone, as well as a robust joypad that seems to be designed with a subtle wink to the D-pad style.
Other features of the entertainment theme will include a special phone chipset for Yamaha audio output high-quality, built in the e-book functions and email client, a two-megapixel camera and a microSD card for storing games and music.
Before you get too excited, however, there are two reservations to be taken into account. First, the phone is currently only available in the USA At a price of $ 270 (£ 137).
Secondly, and perhaps more pressingly, the question remains as to exactly how these games are legitimate (Nintendo and knows how much on the set-up). The official press release only states that "the games (nes / smc / gb / gbc) can be freely downloaded from the Internet and create their MC100 Fly."
Although we have not yet received official confirmation of the company, we can only assume this refers to ROM instead of playing with official license. If that's the case, then do not be surprised if Nintendo whole legal department gave a buzzing fly in the next couple of weeks.
Suffice it to say that we will be monitoring developments closely and hope to get our hands on an MC100 to see if we can put the manufacturer claims to the test in the next couple of weeks.
