Nintendo won't release mobile versions of their games, but we do get an official application for Mario Kart that will let you share gameplay footage and screenshots, and access rankings:

Our policy is to establish consumer relationships based on accounts named Nintendo Network IDs, which are abbreviated as NNIDs," Iwata said. "This 'Mario Kart TV' (temp.) web service is available even for players without NNIDs, but by logging into the service with an NNID, they will be able to easily find their rankings, videos that their friends have shared, videos of tournaments in which they have participated, and it will be convenient to access this service through smart devices even when they are not at home.

In an interview with Bloomberg, Reggie Fils-Aime stated that pre-orders of Smash have surpassed those for Mario Kart 8, and that "The launch of Mario Kart 8 has essentially doubled our Wii U sales year-on-year. Our expectation is that the sell-through for Smash is going to be very strong, certainly on par with what we saw with Mario Kart 8. We think the impact on hardware will be similarly dramatic."


Meanwhile, Sony has sold 8 million PS4s, Microsoft has moved 3 million Xbox Ones, and Nintendo has sold 2 million Wii Us this year. We'll see what happens after the holiday season.
