Nintendo Goes Dark: Setting The Stage For More ‘Mature’ Games?



If you’ve got a Wii chances are you’ve gone to your local game store and stood at the Wii game racks looking for seemingly eternal minutes for a game that catches your eye. You’ve got to skim through countless fitness titles and off-brand party games until you find that single teen+ rated game, only to realize you’ve already played it.

Well Nintendo seems to want to change things, they are now going to be packaging all their CERO C (Japan’s 15+ rating) rated games in black boxes. That’s right, black box and black art, this should make finding the few mature-ish games a lot simpler. Perhaps Nintendo is rethinking it’s strategy towards the hardcore market? Or perhaps this is just a visual aid to eliminate those pesky blackheads from Nintendo’s perfect porcelain white family gaming face.

    It would be great to see this duplicated for North American and European shores. The red box of New Super Mario Bros. Wii is quite an eye catcher so some black boxes would attract some attention as well.

    This is exciting, as a Nintendo fan I love seeing variety in the games. ;_; Is it so wrong to get sick of torrents of nothing but minigame compilations at full game prices?

    this would surely make me start hunting for black at the rack
