Nintendo may make iOS game controllers

Nintendo has “major plans” to focus on smart device development, including possibly designing its own controller for mobile gaming on, among other things, iOS devices, Shinya Takahashi, general manager of entertainment planning and development, told Polygon.

"Physical controllers for smart device applications are available in the market and it is possible that we may also develop something new by ourselves," Takahashi said. "I believe Nintendo's way of thinking is to look at whether action games are really not impossible (without a physical controller for smart device applications) to create and how we can make it happen to create such a game.”

The company previously announced that it was working on five mobile titles to be released by March, the same month its new console, the NX, will be released. (Hey, Nintendo, how about some games and game controllers for the Mac, as well as the iPhone and iPad.)
