Nintendo has had a very hard time in the gaming market over the last few years. Sales of the firm's game consoles are down as are sales of game software. Some have been clamoring for Nintendo to support other platforms with its first party games, but so far, Nintendo has refused.
A new report is making the rounds that claims Nintendo and affiliate The Pokemon Co. may be getting ready to put Pokemon onto the iPad. If the report is true, this will be the first time that the Pokemon franchise has been available on iOS hardware. The Pokemon Co has said that an online trading card game will hit the iPad.
Word that Nintendo has sold over a million copies of Mario Kart 8 also helped send Nintendo shares up in trading. Mario Kart 8 has become only the second game on the Wii U to sell over a million copies; Super Mario Bros. U was the first game to hit that milestone. The Pokemon game will hit the US and Europe on the iPad, but no official launch date has been offered.
