Do We Care About New Nintendo IPs?

IGN - Shigeru Miyamoto says he's working on a new franchise for Wii U. What does that mean? Does Nintendo really need new IPs? Rich and Sam discuss. (3DS, Nintendo DS, Shigeru Miyamoto, Wii, Wii U)

apparently not, since everyone forgets every new IP Nintendo makes each gen. Tho I love Rolling Western, Sakura Samurai, Pushmo, Steel Diver, and ASH, most people either don't know they exist, or ignore them completely

I've heard of those, but they are not as popular as Mario or Zelda, so maybe they don't actually exist?

It's nice to hear that a "true" new Nintendo Ip(whatever that means to pple) is being worked on by the NIntendo man himself.

To be honest this isn't the reason they are obscure.

Look at pikmin, it was a new IP in the GameCube era and now one of Nintendo's valuable franchises.

If they invest well on a new AAA IP with good marketing then it should fare well.

The only problem is the high expectations from people thinking those new IPs gonna rival the likes of Mario or Zelda.

We don't care because we play real consoles

I've said it before and I'll say it again. If people are going to complain about Nintendo not producing new IPs then the least they can do is support the new ones they DO make. Or at least make yourself more knowledgeable. It's pretty weird seeing someone complain about Nintendo "just reusing the same old IPs" when Wonderful 101 and X are sitting right there on the table. There's even a sequel to Kid Icarus out and another coming for Pikmin, both of which have not been touched in at least a decade.

i agree. and i believe one of the main reasons for this is that, a lot of gamers have this misconception that a new IP has to be some AAA big title, something familiar in terms of gameplay, and perhaps something that will appeal to so-called hardcore gamers. so when Nintendo rolls out Wii Fit, Dillon's Rolling Western, Pushmo, Brain Age, etc. they don't consider them new IPs coz either it's not a conventional "game", or it's not something with a skyrocketing budget or a shooter. what they only see are the new Marios, Zelda, etc. which only comes out about 1 in every 2 or even more years, as opposed to "known" franchises that are annual fares.

Don't say do we care, do you care about new Nintendo IPs. Speak for yourself, as if you have a following. Why wouldn't anyone want new IPs from Nintendo. Speaking for myself, I know I do.

"We want new IPs, Nintendo!"

*Miyamoto announces that he's working on a new franchise*

"Do we really care about new IPs, Nintendo?"

*flips table*

^ This. The article makes no sense. Just fishing for hits. Why the hell would anyone not want new IP's?

This will sound ridiculous but you'd be surprised how isolated and sheltered some peoples' tastes are. It's part of why Call of Duty does so well each year.

Exactly this, there is no pleasing people here at n4g. What nintendo needs to do is advertise the shit outta w.e new I.P it is they are coming out with, Such as Wonderful 101, Monolith X, and w.e game they are working on behind the curtains. Nintendo has money to waste so they should be wasting it on ADVERTISING.

makes me super sad face when i talk about Wii U and people say whats that? or think i just mean the Wii -_-
