    This is some unfortunate news. Nintendo will not be developing for the iPod touch.

    I recently emailed them asking about it and they replied. The email is below.

    This is a let down to some because we will not be seeing any Nintendo games! They said there have been rare exceptions but that is like saying that this is not an iPod touch site. It is not going to happen.

    of course they won't...don't you know a company that only wants to make money(nintendo)...won't develop for another company that only wants to make money(apple). These guys only make stuff for themselves.

    same reason why they say its illeagal to install OSX on anything but they're macs....they just want your money...so they force you to buy their computers. And if you want to play mario kart,ssb,or any other crazy game involing any one of nintendos hit charcters...your going to have to buy a ds or a wii to do so.

    There is no creativity at ninendo, they are just rehashing the same characters in a new game. I rather see new ideas/games( ie spores, enigmo) that are more interesting/challenging. Let the new games continue...

    They have a DS if you want to play nintendo games go out and buy one. They don't need to put games on other devices if they have a portable gaming system.
