E3 2012: Mario, Yoshi and Link coming to your iPhone

No. Satoru Iwata hasn't performed a total volte-face and decided to do the decent thing, bringing Nintendo's most loved characters to the biggest, fastest growing gaming platform.

However, Nintendo has done a deal with peripheral and licensing outfit PDP to create official Nintendo cases for iPhones - in this case iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S.

Case the joint

First publicly shown at E3 2012, these designs - including Mario, Luigi, Yoshi and some excellent Zelda cases (my personal favourites), are expected to be available in October.

Pricing is to be confirmed.

Of course, iPhone cases are big business now, with PDP recently launching Diablo III, World of Warcraft and Where's My Water designs.

There's also some neat Disney ones, including a charming iPad design.
