If there ever was an Achilles Heel for Nintendo’s consoles, it’s been that they were never really known to cater to adults who usually craved shooting, violence and the sort. Well, things might be changing for the super-successful, Nintendo Switch.
According to a report from the Wall Street Journal (via Twinfinite), Nintendo is encouraging developers to bring more adult-themed games to the Switch! Takuya Aizu, Chief Executive of Inti Creates, said he was shocked when Gal Gun 2 was approved for the Switch.
Add in games like Skyrim, DOOM, Wolfenstein II: The New Colossus, which all feature violence and gore, then gamers who want their shooting on the go will finally get their wish. The WSJ claims this change course in thinking is Nintendo’s goal to ensure that the Nintendo Switch will cater to all audiences.
As someone who has a Switch, the main deterrent here is, would people buy these “adult” games on the Switch than say, the PS4 or Xbox One? If the Switch is your only gaming device, then maybe? Regardless though, Nintendo’s games are meant to be enjoyed by adults and kids alike, but I can see why Nintendo would want more M-rated games to appear on its platform.
