GiantBomb: I Asked Nintendo Some Questions, But Didn't Get Many Answers


The future of Virtual Console? Metroid? Other Retro games? The status of Earthbound? These are things I wanted to know. Sadly, Nintendo's senior communications director, Charlie Scibetta, wasn't budging.

They enjoy failure being fickle, sticking it to the fans.

We got 13 exclsuives to keep us busy until the next real Zelda and whatever else ninteneo has in the pipeline. It isnt like the games we are getting are crap... They all are extremely polished and look great. They aren't going to show all their cards now prior to the holidays.

for me personally out of those 13 i'm only interested in

Mario 3D
Zelda WW HD

Donkey Kong

At least you are interested, which I guess was there point at this juncture.. Do you have a Wii U?

I think one thing you cant really debate with most of Nintendos games is that they all have a certain level of polish .. As much as I thought I wouldnt like New Super Mario Bros U because I had the orginal Wii version I was pretty wrong.. It looked great and played great and felt fresh...

Altho none of the 2013 games really blew me away I still think they all looked fun and well made.. I realize people wanted more but people also have to consider this is Nintendos first HD dance so it will take them longer than expected to get stuff done (even tho they cant afford to take longer at this point).. At least none of the games are half baked like the Wii U was on release.

I plan to get one the minute they announce a price drop. It will be a holiday purchase for sure.

Wait, "the status of Earthbound"? Beyond the Virtual Console?

Does the guy interviewing seriously think that Nintendo is actually going to talk about...Earthbound? Even if they are working on a super top-secret project regarding Earthbound (which would be pretty damn amazing), does anyone really expect Nintendo to say anything about it at all?
