Chinese megacorp Tencent has revealed it is looking to Nintendo to “learn the essence of making console games” for European and American gamers.
Though it already dominates the mobile market and had a stake in both Epic Games and Activision Blizzard, Tencent is looking to grow its audience outside of China, particularly in light of China’s recent decision to impose game curfews on people under 18 years of age. The company is also in a partnership with Nintendo, too.
“What we want is to expand from China, and one target is console game players in the U.S. and Europe,” a Tencent official – who asked not to be identified – told the Wall Street Journal. “We hope to create console games with Nintendo characters, and learn the essence of making console games from Nintendo engineers.”
