Iwata on the Possibility of Providing Nintendo's IP on Other Platforms

"What I believe is that Nintendo is a very unique company, because it does its business by designing and introducing people to hardware and software - by integrating them, we can be unique. And because we have hardware and software developers in the same building, they stimulate each other," he said.

"And those kinds of conditions have enabled us to create something that no other companies can create. Those kinds of backgrounds are there behind the fact that such a number of great Nintendo franchises exist, and those great franchises always shine for people around the world."

This is why I said earlier that I don't expect Nintendo to ever offer their games on any other platform, including on iOS.
