A patent is filed today in USA. This patent is for a system of games designed for young children, defined by Nintendo as toddlers and pre-kindergartners, and/or people with disabilities. Nintendo believes these games or learning tools will help young children develop skills. A long time ago Sega tried to grab the young children demographic with the Pico which had a drawing board. That didnít work so well, but Nintendo has an elaborate edutainment plan with multiple concept games.
