LAS VEGAS (January 6, 1990) — In a continuing effort to broaden the appeal of its

game software, Nintendo will showcase the further expansion of its licensee network in

According to Nintendo’s vice president of marketing Peter Main, the recent

addition of these new licensees is evidence that the variety of high quality games and

accessories continues to grow. “Nintendo remains dedicated in its efforts to meet the

ever-increasing demand for new software and accessories. In fact, we’ve recently

broadened our commitment by introducing titles with particular appeal to adults and

families,” Main said.

dedicated to Nintendo hardware, software, accessories, the World of Nintendo

merchandising centers and Game Boy.™

 

“Our family of software and accessory developers strengthens and enhances the

appeal of the Nintendo Entertainment System to consumers. The range of titles

available presents many options to children, adults and families and solidifies Nintendo’s

position as the number one home entertainment system.”
