Nintendo’s Google Powered Game Upgraded With English Patch


imageIn April, Nintendo released a Google powered game called And Kensaku for Wii. Skip, the makers of Chibi-Robo, used Google’s data for mini-games where players would guess which search terms were more popular.


And Kensaku was only released in Japan so Nintendo only designed it with support for Japanese characters and search terms. Well, until now. A new update for And Kensaku allows players to search for English words. Nintendo says this may give users in Japan an idea of what people around the world think.


We think, perhaps, Nintendo is planning on bringing And Kensaku outside of Japan.
