A report by Japanese newspaper Nikkei claimed that Nintendo would launch free mini games and trailers for the Wii U and 3DS.

However, the news was categorically denied by the company via a statement to Engadget.

The statement read: “Nikkei’s article contains information previously stated by Mr Iwata during past press conferences, including statements which relate to Nintendo’s willingness to make use of smart devices to promote our products.

However during such past announcements Mr Iwata has also stated that Nintendo’s intention is not to make Nintendo software available on smart devices and as such, we can confirm that there are no plans to offer minigames on smartphone devices.”

What do you think? Should Nintendo promote their products through demos for smartphones and tablets?
