Nintendo Creating Brand New Types Of Games For Wii U

Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has explained that the company is working on brand-new types of games for the company’s latest home console, Wii U. Iwata says that they will announce them nearer to completion to minimise the chances of other development studios copying their ideas. He concluded by saying that with Wii U Nintendo wants to satisfy existing video game fans first and provide new surprises later. (Nintendo, Satoru Iwata, Wii U)

This is what I've been wanting to hear for a very long time.

I think a lot of people would agree. Now Nintendo just needs to deliver.

I have faith in Nintendo. When pushed enough, they can create some fantastic content.

What games might those be, cause Sony wish they owned Super Mario instead of Little Big Planet. Mario Kart and Smash Bros instead of ...

@Kreate
What is the problem with Nintendo making games that all ages can enjoy, do you scold Pixar for making movies that everyone can enjoy?

'Sony wish they owned Super Mario instead of Little Big Planet. Mario Kart and Smash Bros instead of'

agreed. just like how nintendo wish they owned god of war, uncharted, gran turismo, last of us... etc etc.

@chronoforce

no
the last time they made 'brand new' types of games wii got wii fit, wii music, wii play, nintendoland etc lets face it- all crap 'games'

nintendo are going to peddle out equally poor games for the wiiu that take 'advantage' of the wiius second screen. these games will also be marketed towards non-gamers. ie mums

And now Nintendo new game is Monolith Soft X. Nintendo games are never poor quality and are of the best. Non gamers don't play games, and even the hardcore play Mario. Why are you talking crazy.

You also got Xenoblade, The Last Story and Pandora's Tower......see what the other side of the coin looks like!!

@captain n-

yes, i am aware of those games- i own them all. they are all amazing. but they are not new types of games, they are merely rpgs. they are new ips, not new types of games.

when nintendo talks about new types of games, you know they are referring to games which take advantage of the wiiu's second screen. lets be honest, what they are talking about is gimmicky games.

@ pigpen-

X is not a new type of game.

nintendo also recently commented that the new zelda will not be conventional, or like the other zeldas. which sounds scary to me. skyward sword was watered down as it was, it seems nintendo are going to ruin that franchise by making it 'mum friendly'

Oh yeah that's why they sold well and got pretty good reviews.
truechainz  +   440d ago
you should really take your elitist talk somewhere else cuz it's offensive. Anyone can play games and you don't own the right to gaming just cuz you think you have been doing it longer that a certain demographic of gamers. Gaming is growing so you might as well get used to it. Until then I can't wait til the day those "mums" you speak of get good enough to beat you at any game you consider not gimmicky or "hardcore". I know my mom would be a good first candidate cuz she is a gamer and damn good at it. She is the reason I got into gaming in the first place.
Thepcz  +   439d ago
lmao 19 disagrees. confirmation that im on the right track, but people just cant accept the truth.

we will see who is right when nintendo announce these new types of games- it will be a gimmick fest.
nzbleach  +   441d ago
oh unannounced products i like that just deliver now

That is a good strategy since everyone always copies the Nintendovaters.
jc48573  +   441d ago
for Christ sakes, release Fatal Frame 2 and 4 HD Collection already. Man, I can't stress this enough.
WeAreLegion  +   441d ago
It would work really well with the Wii U controller, but I think I'd rather see the series on PS4/XBO/PC. More power can give us better detail. Fatal Frame is such a brilliant series. I'd love to see what those guys can do with all that power. Just look at Outlast!
kreate  +   441d ago
I wonder if we can use the controller screen as a camera.
WeAreLegion  +   441d ago
I certainly hope so. I needs me some Wii U games pronto!
just-joe  +   441d ago
Look forward to it.
plsburydoughboy  +   441d ago
Well, Nintendo's been discreetly buying studios, expanding the ones they own, and even recently erected a new building to house staff (you know, while Sony sold two of theirs). It was baffling to think that they were making so few games knowing all of that, and now Nintendo is telling us point blank that was not the case after all.

So yeah, we won't know what form these brand new games will take, but it's reasonable to expect that they will have more first party titles in the market than either Sony or Microsoft come holiday season.
Dj7FairyTail  +   440d ago
Sony didn't sell their studios. They closed them. Like 5 were close and one was renewed. Basically laying off and closing them for money to recover their losses. Evil people they are.
Dgander  +   440d ago
I think he was referring to the two buildings they sold (New York and Tokyo) and is paying rent to stay in them. They sold them off to cushion the huge loss they would have taken last year. My guess is they wanted to please investors since their stock has been at all time lows last year.
plsburydoughboy  +   439d ago
My bad :| Dgander was right, I meant to say buildings and not studios hehe. Nintendo seems to be fluid when it comes to studios, considering Project SORA was built and subsequently closed on the fly just to make one game. Number of employees would be a better indicator of the company's health, although AFAIK that's not public info.
BATRA  +   440d ago
good news
linkenski  +   440d ago
I respect Iwata, and i think his strategies are sound, but the whole "to avoid other companies copying our stuff" is him being pretty querulous IMO.
Campy da Camper  +   440d ago
I'm not one to ever count Nintendo out. I admit, my hardcore gaming is on my ps3 but I'll always buy Nintendo stuff as a back up. Heck, after a 4 hour session of the last of us, I need to decompress emotionally and playing Mario is perfect.

Also , the gamepad is sweet. The potential is there and yes games are lacking but if Nintendo says new awesome stuff is on the way I will believe them. They know Wii u fit is not gonna fly. I think there are some revolutionary games that really utilize the gamepad on the horizon.
