The Nintendo controllers have stayed true to the brand's original look for the most part over the years, featuring the same flat structure and accessible buttons. However, the Japanese brand is set to take the retro Nintendo controllers to smartphone users in the near future in order to increase sales.
The company is attempting to make mobile gaming just as appealing as handheld consoles -- giving consumers more control and further immersing them into the gaming experience.
With gaming on the go becoming more popular among consumers, the new Nintendo controllers would likey give the company's products more marketability and lead to more profit. The devices are said to be compatible with iPhones and iPads for the time being -- however further expansions are possible if the move proves successful.
