The gaming giants - who are responsible for franchises such as 'Mario' and 'The Legend of Zelda' - have said that whilst they have noticed an increase in the number of users of computers when it comes to gaming, they won't be making ports of their games for the systems as they believe the "integrated hardware-software business" is the way forward.

Speaking at the latest Annual General Meeting for their company, Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima said: "We are aware that many consumers play PC games. However, we believe that the integrated hardware-software business is the best way for us to provide the surprises and new gameplay experiences that we want to achieve."

However, whilst they might not be interested in making games for PC just yet, that might change in the future as the company had a similar stance to bringing games to smartphones before they eventually got on board with 'Super Mario Run'.

But for now, Nintendo are focusing on releasing more content for their own consoles - primarily the new Nintendo Switch hybrid console and the popular 3DS - as well as furthering their mobile content.

Tatsumi added: "We believe that we can further expand our core integrated hardware-software business by providing our software on smart devices and increasing the number of consumers who experience our IP."

Meanwhile, it was previously announced that the Nintendo Switch would be getting more ports of older games originally released for the Wii U console.

Nintendo executive Reggie Fils-Aime said: "Given the install base of Wii U, there was some fantastic content that consumers did not get to play. So that creates certainly a business opportunity. On the other hand, one of the things that we've discussed internally is, there really needs to be an additional element to that game to make it fresh, and to further compel the consumer to buy in."
