I think Platinum Games would like to become first party for Nintendo. I don't think it would be a bad idea, but lets see what they do first with The wonderful 101. The Wonderful 101 looks fun to play.

As for starfox, that's ultimately up to Nintendo.

That would be an honor to witness PG become a Nintendo 1st Party studio.

Star Fox could be cool from Platinum Games, but I think they'd do an amazing sequel to Kid Icarus: Uprising on Wii U

Judging by the style, that would make more sense.

Lets see them prove themselves first because claiming it to be a good thing. There track recorded isn't exactly great for high quality games. Nintendo doesn't want to destroy a reputation of one of their franchises

They did MadWorld and members of P+ have been with Sega for years, to include exclusives for Nintendo. I think Platinum is a great choice and Star Fox is about the thrill and hectic fast flying gameplay...after Vanquish, I think P+ can do SF real justice.

For now we will have to live with second party

Honestly, I could see that happening too.

Their first games (if I remember correctly) were MadWorld and Infinite Space, a Wii exclusive and a DS exclusive. Then they're making Project P-100, and now Nintendo has picked up Bayonetta 2, and now statements like this, and this is actually the 2nd time he's said this.

Platinum seems to like Nintendo a lot, and vice-versa.

If PG molests this franchise I wouldn't complain. Hell they could make the-out-of-your-Airwing- experience awesome.

If they pull of a hectic environment as StarHawk why not?

their first games were:

Viewtiful joe series
God Hand

..and I love them all!! :)

I think team ninja might be a great firs party dev for nintendo, I just loved "The Other M"

AWBrawler2283d ago

thats rare to hear online, but it was one of my favorite games this gen

That would actually be very good for the Nintendo exclusive Starfox Franchise.

Platinum Games stylistic ways would actually benefit the Starfox Universe with the infamous Platinum Games high speed action packed ways used in other titles. Especially a game like Vanquish which is the best example that I could come up with. Nintendo and Platinum Games seem to be working closely together on many projects. More than a few of them being Nintendo platform exclusive titles at that. I guess they dont feel the same way about exclusive offerings dying out as other developers have recently mentioned.

The Starfox Franchise had sorta lost its footing during the era of the Nintendo Gamecube entertainment system. Actually the entire flight shooter genre pretty much took a massive step back when compared to offering on the Nintendo 64 entertainment system. With Legendary titles like Rogue Squadron, and Starfox 64 that were leading the genre at that point in time. I am patiently looking forward to a clean reboot of the franchise and for flight shooters as a whole. The Nintendo Wii U entertainment system tablet control function would make flying very interesting.

Rated E For Everyone

That would actually seem like a really interesting idea if pulled off correctly. (i.e. Not making another StarFox Adventures)

They might as well just go 2nd party dev partners w nintendo.. They need more help gtn new ips

for we are many2284d ago

If they partner up with the big N, it'll be the most interesting and potentially productive move of this kind in recent years, bringing back memories of the best successful partnership in video game history between Nintendo and Rare.
