Are Japanese games made for younger audiences?

Like that art style looks like it's for 8 year olds. that Ni No Kuni game looks like it's for a younger audience than Pokemon

Your art style looks like it's for 8 year olds.. >_>

Seriously though, I play games for FUN, It doesn't matter what kind of art style it has as long as the gameplay is solid.

Regardless of whatever trolling you're attempting to do, the answer is actually yes. In Japan, it's supposedly a thing still looked at as toys for children. Most games aren't aimed at 20+ year old people, unfortunately.

You obviously know nothing about Japan.

You know, the place where 20+ year olds carry around 3DS/PSPs from and to work.

The art style used in Ni no Kuni is the Studio Ghibli artstyle. Studio Ghibli is kind of akin to the Disney of Japan, they produce family-friendly content which is popular with people of all ages.

I played MGS3 when I was 14. Talks about Government, conspiracy, Cold War, money laundering, etc. over my head.

I obviously don't, but based on what I've read about Japan's gaming stats, most of those DS/PSP gamers are actually teenagers.
