Why do people keep on asking this? Nintendo isn't going to devalue it's ip's that it can sell for 35-39 bucks in a market where the most expensive ''games'' on the smart phones are like ten bucks. What type of stupidity is that? Iwata wouldn't torpedo his company like that. And for the people who continue to bitch about this... you want to play Nintendo games, but your too ''cool'' for a gameboy or ds or 3ds... really? But playing Angry birds on a tiny phone is acceptable.
