A patent filed by Nintendo in June makes it look like Game Boy games might be finally coming to mobile platforms.
Yup, you might finally get to play Mario on your iPhone. The patent, disclosed and discovered by a NeoGAF user Thursday, is for an emulator — software that would mimic the original 1989 Game Boy, the Game Boy Color and Game Boy Advance.
The patent seems to be targeting mobile devices specifically but it also mentions PC and seat-back displays in airplanes.
