Chinese gamers are review bombing Dr. Mario World

Dr. Mario World has been out for a few months now, and it’s been making quite a bit of money. However, despite the good sales performance, some gamers aren’t happy with Dr. Mario World. More specifically, Chinese fans are review bombing the game for not being able to select China as a country, and because some are under the impression that it does not have simplified Chinese as a language option.

Dr. Mario World unfortunately does omit China as a country of choice because Nintendo Accounts aren’t supported in China as of now. However, Simplified Chinese is actually an available language option in the game. But due to the lack of an EULA (end user license agreement) in China, the game’s default language is Japanese. So it’s understandable how Chinese fans could get confused and angry about this.

This is unfortunate but also currently unavoidable for Nintendo. Lately, they’ve made some large strides in making their games available to Chinese gamers, though they seem to still have a long way to go when it comes to market saturation.

What do you guys think? Is there anything Nintendo can do to appease these gamers with Dr. Mario World, or is it not their responsibility? Let us know!

I love all kinds of video games. I personally find the most enjoyment in JRPGs, Visual Novels, and pretty much anything Nintendo makes. I'm always open to discovering new types of games, so I'll be happy to check out anything someone suggests.
