Content designed to appeal to 50+ age group and women is on the way, promises Nintendo America's president.
The 3DS has thus far seen a software line-up predominately geared towards the core gamer - nintendogs + cats aside - but this is set to change claims Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime.
This starts now with the release of two new Mario titles.
"Well, our two big holiday titles for this year will certainly broaden the audience. Everyone loves Mario, everyone loves to play Mario Kart," Fils-Aime told Games Blog.
He continued: "As we look to next year, Mario & Sonic at the London Olympic Games is coming out on 3DS early next year-that's going continue to broaden. But my expectation is that, come E3, I think we'll be showcasing a range of different titles that, for a more casual consumer, they'll see reasons to jump on board with the Nintendo 3DS."
Pressed further on the subject of new titles for the 3DS, Fils-Aime added: "In terms of other genres, absolutely we will continue to push the envelope with new, unique, differentiated experiences that you can only get on the Nintendo 3DS and that widen the consumer demographic. So, will there be content to appeal to consumers 50 plus the way Brain Age did? Absolutely. Will there be content that's going to appeal to women the way we are able to do with the DS? Absolutely.
"I can't go into the details of what exactly those titles will be, but stay tuned. There is information that we'll be sharing prior to E3, plus a lot of information at E3 as well."
