Nintendo releases first paid-for iOS app

Tom Phillips for Eurogamer:

In a watershed moment for Nintendo: the Japanese developer has released its first paid-for iOS app.

A version of the existing 3DS Pokédex app is now available for iPhone, iPad and iPhone devices (thanks, Serebii).

Initially just for release in Japan, the download also comes with in-app purchases.

Granted it’s just a Pokémon encyclopaedia, but nonetheless an interesting development.
