The video game company best known for Game Boy, "Mario" and "Pokemon" for kids is campaigning for older players with its "Touch Generation" games for the Nintendo DS handheld game system. Featured under the new orange logos are games that are mostly short mind-challenging puzzles and that don't require a great deal of control maneuvering.
On Monday, Nintendo is releasing a Touch Generation game for fans of Soduku puzzles, "Soduku Gridmaster." Left is an image from "Brain Age."
