Chinese megacorp Tencent has revealed it is looking to Nintendo to “learn the essence of making console games” for European and American gamers.

Despite the fact that it as of now overwhelms the versatile market and had a stake in both Epic Games and Activision Blizzard, Tencent is hoping to develop its group of spectators outside of China, especially considering China’s ongoing choice to force game curfews on individuals under 18 years old. The company is likewise in an partnership with Nintendo, as well.

“What we want is to expand from China, and one target is console game players in the U.S. and Europe,” a Tencent authority – who asked not to be distinguished – 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.”

“Nintendo games are not constructed to make people pay a lot of money,” another Tencent authority included.

“Women are becoming a driving force behind the growth of the gaming market,” analyst Daniel Ahmad told WSJ. “Chinese developers are not only shifting to create games aimed at female players, they are also tailoring existing games to better appeal to them.”

Curiously, this is backed up by reports Nintendo has requested that outside engineers center around games intended to engage young ladies, “such as romance games, a genre with passionate fans including in China” as indicated by the WSJ.

“Tencent is skillfully pursuing silent global domination, via expansion primarily in the form of major and minor investments in industry companies around the world without rebranding them as Tencent,” included Lisa Cosmas Hanson, overseeing accomplice at Niko Partners.

In other China-related gaming news, Blizzard has as of late been blamed for organizing its Chinese business interests over the right to speak freely of discourse by suspending Hearthstone player Chung “Blitzchung” Ng Wai for communicating master Hong Kong sees. In spite of the fact that the company (fairly) apologized for its treatment of the issue, Blizzard thusly reported it won’t revoke the bans.
