Square and Nintendo Bringing Game to Cell Phones

With the help of publisher Square Enix, Nintendo will be bringing its wildly successful Pokémon franchise to mobile phones. In the Japan, compatible phone owners will be able to download an application that will act both as an email reader and pocket monster pet simulator.

This new piece of software, available only in Japan, is part of Nintendo's inital foray into the mobile phone market. Only recently has the company allowed for the licensing of some of its more famous trademarked songs as ring tones. Whether or not anyone outside of the country will be able to use this application remains to be seen, depending on its success and any shifts in cell phone culture in North America and Europe. I can see this coming stateside too so we'll be sure to keep you updated.
