What If Nintendo Made A Smartphone? (VIDEO)

What if Nintendo made a smartphone?

Would it be shaped like a mushroom, have two (or three, or four) screens, and mystifyingly slow system software? Or would it just be really thin, beautiful and run Super Mario World?

That's the question answered (theoretically) in a new concept video produced by T3.

The clip shows a potential new avenue for the troubled Japanese gaming giant, whose Wii U console has struggled since launch last December. Even its 3DS handheld, while bolstered by recent sales bumps and software exclusives, sells far less games that Apple's App Store.

Take a look at the idea, above - and make sure to head over to T3 for the full story behind how the concept was made.
