Nintendo makes plenty of new IPs

Gimme Gimme Games argues that Nintendo already makes a bunch of new IPs every year but people largely ignore them for whatever reason.

While I don't like this article's jabs at Sony (seriously, there are worse worse offenders to "milking" than God of War), it makes a good point about Nintendo's newer IPs and how people ignore them.

"But but but I want IPs that appeal to me!"

Fair enough, but at least have the decency to acknowledge the fact that Nintendo DOES bust out new IPs here and there, but they don't appeal to you. At least then you'd be honest. And accurate.

Nintendo x MonolithSoft Action-MMORPG that'll last for 10years !

xenoblade is honestly the best rpg i played last gen. and i played plenty of them

Sanquine901885d ago


This site is making a lot of articles jabbing at sony... I dont know why it has to make the comparison with Sony. Gimme Gimme Games is an Nintendo only site? because i have seen a lot of articles about Nintendo in the positive daylight. If anyone is to blame for the Wii U tanking it's Nintendo themself.. Friends of mine think the Wii U is a extra controller for the Wii. They need to give a console a proper name. Wii 2 was far better.

Iwata , please dont talk but just give us games. My wii U is collecting dust because im sick of playing MH ultimate every day

They seem to really prefer the PS4 in all their Xbox One posts.

PopRocks3591885d ago

In all fairness around six or seven notable games are all coming out this year.

Game & Wario, Pikmin 3, Zelda WWHD, Mario 3D World, Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze, Wonderful 101 and New Super Luigi U (if you count it).

Sanquine901885d ago


- Pikmin 3 ( reason why i bought the console) So im a happy man!
-Zelda WW HD looks stunning
- Donkey kong is always fun

So yeah! Good stuff

Sanquine901885d ago


Yeah, i noticed that earlier. I dont know why.. I favor Wii U and playstation 4 but my taste is more RPG etc. And i know that will come to these two.

Pre ordered PS4 and Xbox one

Sincere01211884d ago

Plenty of games r out and more are to come. Do your research instead of just repeating senseless crap that is constantly repeated online in order to have jabs at Nintendo.
If you really think MH Ultimate is the only game on the wii u then u must live on the moon. MH is one of the worst games on wii u, I played the demo but never got into it.

Sanquine901884d ago

@Sincere Do some research> ? Uuuhm i did.... MH ultimate is awesome. Also have zombie U , toki tori 2 , Nintendoland , Super mario bros uuhmm and mass effect 3. So dont tell me i got no games;) I just want new games. Cant say anything to the fanboys

11 games in 11 years for Ratchet & Clank ( 1 per year )
50+ games in 17 years for Pokemon ( ~3 per year )
125+ games in 28 years for Mario ( ~4 per year )

So what's your point ?

PopRocks3591885d ago

The point is they still put out new IPs when everyone seems to think otherwise?

imXify1885d ago

I'm okay with new IPs. But comparing it with Ratchet & Clank and God of War just wasn't necessary.

thezeldadoth1885d ago (Edited 1885d ago )

sony defense.

Also, the mario games are way better than ratchet and clank and they sell more than any other IP. Of course they're gonna make more games. Mario saved the gaming industry...Ratchet and clank is just a decent IP from insomniac that misses just as much as it hits.

AceBlazer131885d ago

having lots of ips don't mean shit if they suck

_QQ_1885d ago

Those don't count, remember.

Rusty5151885d ago

@thezeldadoth: Mario didn't save the gaming industry. Between 1982 and 1985, gaming was still very much alive in Japan and other countries. The video game crash only happened in North America. And besides...That was over 25 years ago. Stop living in the past. The point is, Nintendo isn't the same company they used to be. When was the last time Nintendo actually made a relevant IP? Something that compares to Mario or Zelda as their "killer app"? Smash Bros? That was over 3 console generations ago. Face it. They're a shadow of their former selves and rely on the same exact franchises to carry their systems. And then Nintendo fanboys act like nothing's wrong as long as Mario gets a new cat suit. Pathetic.

thezeldadoth1885d ago

^lol yeah thats the only change to mario is that he got a new cat suit. Its funny how you guys are so desperate to spin things. Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 are some of the highest rated games in history, and they are new. Its not just nintendo, but nobody has created an IP as legendary as mario or zelda since, but the new games in the IP's continue to perform amazingly. Skyward Sword, Twilight princess, mario galaxy, all of those earned game of the year awards from multiple places.

You're counting non-mainline Pokemon/Mario games. If Ratchet had the IP strength to carry sports spin offs you better bet Sony would pull the trigger

jcnba281885d ago

Mario Golf is not the same as Mario Galaxy. Just because the same character is in it doesn't mean it's the same game.

PopRocks3591885d ago

I've seen some really stupid people try to claim that Luigi's Mansion, Paper Mario and Mario Kart are all the same because they have Mario characters in it.

I'll admit, there is a lot of games that use the Mario universe (a whole LOT), but no two Mario games are the same. Except maybe the New Super Mario Bros. games.

GenericNameHere1885d ago

Not the same games, but Mario's still in the forefront, selling the game. It's STILL A MARIO GAME, despite different roles and not "main" Mario games. You're still "milking" the Mario franchise.

Only ones I wouldn't call milking are rereleases (as in HD releases or remasters. I wouldn't count Mario 64DS as a new game)

ChickeyCantor1885d ago

"Not the same games, but Mario's still in the forefront,"

You mean a marketing trick? You're right. But that doesn't in any way imply they are the same game.

"You're still "milking" the Mario franchise. "

But why is this an issue? Why does this affect the next true mario platfomer?
It's something I never understood. Mario is milked ( eww ) so their main games are bad all of a sudden?

From all those mario games, i've hardly played any of the non platforming titles.

stragomccloud1885d ago

You should really think of taking into consideration actual Mario games, and not just Mario themed games, or games with Mario in it. Mario is Nintendo's mascot, so obviously as the face of Nintendo, he will be in almost everything he can possibly be put in.

fatstarr1885d ago

They did the comparison so blind people could see that ALl of the Big 3, Milk their Bread and Butter Franchises.

but the claim that Nintendo Only does it is now Disproved
and the Claim that Nintendo doesnt have New IP's
is now disproved

just because it isnt a game of the year contender or some "new" fps doesnt mean its not a New IP.

AWBrawler1885d ago

Exactly. LAST STORY is a new IP. STEEL DIVER is a new IP. XENOBLADE though similar to Xenogear and xenosaga is still a new IP. Wii Fit is a new IP. BATTALION WARS though inspired by advanved wars is a fairly new IP. TRACE MEMORY is fairly new and has a sequel on Wii. And heck X is coming to Wii U as.are some unannounced new IPs.

Sanquine901885d ago

@AW Brawl The last story is awesome.. But cmon steeldiver. Xenogear and the new announced X game ( one of my most anticpated games of the next generation) and you are hearing this from a sony fan ( who also has a big heart for Nintendo)

quantae061885d ago

@imXify Mario isn't a game, he's a character. Mario Kart and Mario Bros U are different games n different series. But your off topic anyways.

Plenty of IP's, not enough big multi platforms.

fatstarr1885d ago

coulnt agree more thats the killer of the wiiu
the shafting by the 3rd parties and then when big name games come out they never give us the good ones, just the shitty ones no one wants to play.

weekev151885d ago

Hence why this household will once againbe a 2 console hoiuse. WiiU will be my primary console for the games I love and ill have my PS4 for my multiplatforms and naughty dog.

Triforce0791885d ago (Edited 1885d ago )

Can i just say if Sony or Microsoft had Donkeykong,Mario,Zelda,Metroid ,Animal crossing,Waverace,F-Zero,Kid icurus,Smash bros,ect ect they would milk them even worse without the quality,look Nintendo have the most successful franchises in the gaming world what should they do not support them ? well if they wernt in such demand they could.

quantae061885d ago (Edited 1885d ago )

@Trickman888 True! The Wii U has a lot of good multiplats, but they are coming up short on others. The Crew should be on Wii U, but thanks for WatchDogs n Splinter Cell Blacklist Ubisoft. ;) Either way I'm happy to buy whatever multiplat that uses the Gamepad in unique ways. I buy both 1st and 3rd party games on Wii U. I love gameplay features with the Gamepad. If the game isn't on Wii U though I'll also have a PS4. PS4 with Infamous SS n Kingdom Hearts 3 to start off with. :)
