Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has said that Hollywood is “interested” in what 3DS can offer.

“When we show Nintendo 3DS to people in Hollywood, they’re intensely interested,” he said in the latest edition of Iwata Asks.

“I think lots of people would be happy if they could watch things like 3D movie trailers on their Nintendo 3DS.

“It is possible to distribute trailers to Nintendo 3DS. And it’s possible to distribute them to a Nintendo 3DS in a Wi-Fi environment while the user sleeps.”

Shigeru Miyamoto chimed in, adding: “It’s still unpredictable, but I imagine we will both be able to profit. Game developers used to have a complex about Hollywood. There was an atmosphere of inequality, but recently Hollywood is taking Nintendo seriously.”
