Those of us who suffered pangs of jealously when we heard young people in Japan are using their Nintendo DS Lite's as personal trainers, drinking guides and therapists/life coaches might finally be able to rest easy.
Nintendo has announced they hope to expand the gaming market to non-gamers while video game publisher Ubisoft has announced their intention to release a series of games they're calling "Games for Everyone." What are these games you wonder? The main game comes from the "Petz" series, where you care for virtual pets. Also on the list is a game called "My Coach," which according to Switched is heavily influenced by the Nicole Kidman-backed Brain Training series. That series will include a game called "My Life Coach," which is described as "your own personal Dr. Phil." Details are still vague but it sounds a lot like the life coach games being released in Japan.
