A few days ago, a rumor started circulating that Apple and Nintendo may be teaming up in a fashion which would find Nintendo delivering games for the iPhone. The rumor is definitely enough to perk up a few heads, but unfortunately comes from an unnamed, unconfirmed source.
Regardless, the report - out of tech blog NoHeat - indicates that Nintendo and Apple have reached an agreement in which Nintendo would license a limited portion of it's content for use on the iPhone.
As for how the games will work, the NoHeat report describes an on screen directional pad which would be used to provide controls. One can only assume touchscreen buttons will accompany the touchscreen d-pad.According to the rumor, the iPhone Nintendo games will be sold through iTunes at a $29 price point. As far as what titles will be sold, no specifics have been provided. It was mentioned, however, that the available titles will "cater to an older audience" - which suggests traditional titles such as the pictured Super Mario Brothers, Metroid, and Zelda.
