Nintendo has ruled out speculation that it will be bringing “mini-games” (also categorized as demos) to smartphone devices.

Nikkei published a report yesterday indicating that Nintendo would be increasing its presence on mobile hardware. Mini-games and an increase in advertising were mentioned as two prominent ways in which the company would be pushing its products on smartphones and tablets in the future.

A new statement from Nintendo, however, indicates otherwise. It flat-out says, “we can confirm that there are no plans to offer mini-games on smartphone devices.”
