It's the second decade of the 2000s; mobile Nintendo is coming and you'll no longer need a console to play your favorite video games. The maker of classic digital quests like Super Mario is teaming up with :DeNA of Japan to make handset-specific apps.

Don't expect to see anything like what you've played before, however, because the alliance is set to produce original story lines, characters and challenges that are optimized for interaction with touchscreen devices. The announcement for the new Nintendo IP for tablets and smartphones coincided with SXSW 2015, rousing fans online amidst a general spirit of Internet buzz surrounding developments in interactive technology. Pretty soon, a simple tap on your display will bring mobile Nintendo to your fingertips.
