There's a good chance we'll be seeing more Wii U games from the team behind The Wonderful 101, as Platinum Games designer Hideki Kamiya has expressed interest in not only creating more titles for Nintendo, but also becoming a second-party developer.
god help us all... no mgr 2 nintendo , why the hell wont you understand ? buying out devs isnt the way people want 3rd party games on the wii u
Oh there will still be a Metal Gear Rising 2... It'll just be a Wii U-exclusive!
can't happen unless they have Konami approve. I don't think Konami would approve it.
Ahhhhh yes more vanquish would be great! Rising with more fighting and gamepad or motion plus support would be great... I mean if blackops can do motion aiming right why not eeveryone else?
@MT - Konami will approve if they get an exclusive game deal with Nintendo though.
It is actually.... Me and 2 of my friends want the wii u when sonic lost world and bayonetta 2 will launch. Besides theres some good exclusives on there too, regardless. I plan on owning all 3 next gen consoles by next year.. Need to save money xD
Things are turning around for the Wii U! I'd love to see what Platinum could do with even more support from Nintendo. After all, they're one of the few studios actually exploring GamePad functionality.
I think they are the prefect developers for Nintendo to buy. They have everything that Nintendo first party developers lack.
Well if that's the case their games would be selling on the console....sadly they aren't Wonderful 101 kind of failed and I expect no better for Bayonetta 2
how has w101 failed if it hasn't even been released in NA?
Y'all need to stop with the wonderful 101 failed crap. Not only has it not released in NA, but it released in japan two days before those numbers came out, so its only two days worth of sales. At least give it a week of sales before saying fail. Besides everyone knows these kinda games on a Nintendo console typically have legs.
Yeah, madworld was a game that seemed like it would sell well in japan, but it flopped there and sold 700,000 everywhere else. No more heroes also flopped in japan and made its money in america. So even though w101 seemed perfect for japan and sold bad, its not too late for the game.
OH,THE BURN!!!! LOl
mgr 2 will be wiiu exclusive. and dont think konami wont allow it, remember nintendo secured the brilliant remake of metal gear solid exclusively for gamecube. remember snake was in smash bros. nintendo have a great relationship with konami. this will be a great move for nintendo
First off that was a very different time and secondly Konomi wouldn't make any money at all for WiiU exclusivity. Konomi will not allow it, the Metal Gear series will never EVER be exclusive again.
konami's all future developments are on fox engine.no wii u support(not a bad hardware...but its not been made keep wii u framework in mind.so no spport) 2.kojima wont let his beloved franchise be butchered just for the sake of nintendo fanboy bragging rights
Listen guys this is proof any developer that works with Nintendo loves them and their superior experience in game development.....Please Nintendo take these guys under your wings... this happened to Moonlith and look how good they are now,in other words Platinum will be better developers for it.
Waw that was so damn moronic, Nintendo doesn't have superior experience in game development since they just release the same franchise games over and over. If Nintendo takes them in than Platinum Games would die, the WiiU is dying.
I just hope Nintendo continues its partnership with Platinum Games.I hope nintendo put more money to help other developers like Platinum Games to get their "niche and beautiful" ideas become reality.
why do u care? How do u know how people want 3rd party games? Frustrated, that these games wont come to other consoles?
Why do I feel Nintendo is going to sleep on this opportunity. Its a known fact that Nintendo is not getting support from key 3rd party developers like they did back in the late 80s and early 90s.Plus outside of Retro Studios, Nintendo 1st and 2nd party developers lack the skill set to create large robust franchises. Nintendo needs to jump on this now and I strongly feel they need to acquire (or try to) Slightly Mad Studios.
Nintendo knows how to work with other developers, unlike their competitors.
Hope it happens! I'm sure it wouldn't be the first time a developer becomes 2nd party. In this case though it sounds like it's Platinum who wants it not Nintendo searching it out!
Couldn't MGR2 just get a different developer?
For a person with only three bubbles, you sure do know how to use them well...not
If Nintendo ever buys Platinum Games, then that just killed the fast paced action combat for gaming.
no it wouldn't,it would be on nintendo.
If Wonderful 101 is anything to go by, it would be financial suicide for Platinum Games.
@Roccetarius - if TW101 is anything to go by? So a face paced, over the top, button mashing action game? How would it be financial suicide? If they became a 2nd party developer, Nintendo would fund all of their projects.
@ your second comment. Do you understand how development works? Nintendo paid platinum to make wonderful 101. Platinum games has already received a paycheck. Nintendo has shielded them from any financial risk. If Wonderful 101 flops badly Nintendo will take the hit. If ninty buys Platinum, they will be providing all the financial resources - all platinum needs to do is make the game. So tell me - how is it financial suicide?
Unless something drastically changes sales-wise, then Platinum Games would only serve to drag Nintendo down even further, which leaves the developer in the dust.
How would it be financial suicide for platinum if Nintendo would be paying for everything?? Platinum's games never sell well other tham MGR because the mgs name.So i would say thank god if Nintendo picks them up because it would ensure we get more of their games. @below Monolith isn't being closed down and xenoblade didn't even break 1 million.Sony and MS usually scrap studios that don't sell frequently but ive never heard of Nintendo doing it. I'm sure when they funded bayo2 and w101 they knew what they were getting into.
But then wouldn't it be "financial suicide" for Nintendo if their games don't sell that well. They would be putting money into a studio where they aren't seeing much of profit. Usually when that happens to anyone else the studio is closed down....not hired. Hey I love Platinum Games but I don't think it's the best decision for Nintendo. If Platinum's games were actually selling tons of Wii U's then fair enough but they aren't
@ Foxtrot. Platinum hasn't even released a game on Wii U yet you idiot. Except 101 in japan which we have only seen two days worth of sales so far. And Japanese don't preorder so go troll another article.
What are you on about Bayonetta2 is a step up in graphics,action,framerate,game play,everything....
Not really. Nintendo has a good track record with second parties and nourishing them and they have never closed a single studio even when sales were poor on a game. Monolith Soft is still making games they want to make with X, which looks to be a kind of sequel to Xenoblade Chronicles and i can imagine P* would do the exact same. In fact this would actually give P* a lot of job security and stability.
Sta Sta Starfox......? Please be true.
Platinum could do some really cool stuff with that franchise.
Stop playing with my emotions
Go ahead. With their games they won't be overshadowed by Other Third Parties much on Wii or 3DS. This could also mean work on Star Fox, Third Person Metroid or Sin and Punishment. Wii U and 3DS is best for medium and small game developers and publishers. Reason for Level-5 and Atlus games on 3DS, Indies for Wii U and third parties making profits unlike big studios who waste too much or don't fully develop a game.
Oh man, I hadn't even thought of a Metroid game by Platinum. That would be crazy awesome!
Treasure does sin and pun... another classic development studio. Nintendo collects talent and all those marios and wii fit keeps those games coming. stop the complaining.
there only two Wii Fit @MrMister Did you even read. I said third party devs and publishers.
Atlus said they are bringing another ps3 game later this year. If the end of this month/beginning of next month is when they announce who bought atlus, then that means Nintendo didn't get atlus. Why would atlus cut a deal to publish games on ps3 if there is even a slight chance that they would be bought by Nintendo? Makes no sense. Lol whoever it is who bought them is definitely a 3rd party.
You troll,ps4 and xbox1 are loosing out get your head around it m8,Nintendo only deserve medium/small developers ?? Nintendo are the biggest gaming company that have been around for over 120 years not far off coca cola ?? Plus collaborations with Nintendo normally turn out to be some of the best games ever... Retro Studio's will be hard at work on Metroid they are technically more creative than Platinum and now how to push graphics more than anyone,i remember the humble wii rolling around at a silky 60fps in metroid corruption in that morph ball ive still not experienced something that smooth yet and Nintendo have said they will use Retro to push graphics hard on wiiu in the future,Donkey kong out sold Unchartered last year so it's obvious why they did that...
if that means no metal gear rising 2 then NO. Please don't
No god please no..
After playing the Wonderful 101 like 6 times through (Demo) from what I have played and seen I think they would be a PERFECT fit for Nintendo. Plus they could bring that more mature part of Nintendo a lot of fans have been longing for. I'm going to state this NOW! Next year is fair game. There is no system launches just software to go off from. Nintendo is going to blow the competition out of the water with games next year. Calling it now!
SmashBros,X,FE X SMT,Yarn Yoshi,Mariokart,Bayonetta2,tha t new pokemon game,third sonic exclusive,maybe even new zelda, plus new announcements.WIIu 2014 looks like a great year.
Plus Nintendo hinted at a collaboration with Capcom on SOMETHING as well so who knows what that could be. Mega Man? Maybe a new Onimusha? Or a exclusive Resident Evil? Resident Evil remake was on the Gamecube! Capcom has hinted at maybe remaking Resident Evil 2! All kinds of crazy stuff could be in the plans for Nintendo but I have my money down on Mega Man.
Damn, imagine a remake of Resident Evil 2 in Wii U * mind blow*
now let's hear the trolls, Bayonetta 2 is coming to the other systems!!! NO IT IS NOT!!!!!! this is going to happen, I cannot wait, platinum would be an awesome developer, and they would fit right at home, with Nintendo, SORRY TROLLS unless you buy a wii u NOW it will be in the bag, BAYONETTA 2, WILL NEVER BE ON THE OTHER SYSTEMS!! GET OVER IT!!!!
Before getting hype over P* belonging to Nintendo: 1. It's just P* is intersted, their mind may change later OR Nintendo may reject it 2. Has Wonderful 101 sold well? And will Bayonetta 2 be a system seller or sell well? 3. Did you Nintendo fans played P* games on PS3/X360 like Bayonetta? And if you did played them did you liked or loved them? 4. Will they make Great and/or GOTY games for Nintendo to be system seller? Not trying to put your hope down and not trolling if they'll P* make good games I'll sure own Wii U just like I am already convinced to own PS4 but I think there're already better Sword(Or Hack N Slash) games than Bayonetta though at least I like Bayonetta than DmC. (A reply would be nice)
For Nintendo they don't throw or reject their developers because a game failed. They just make them move on to something else.
All Nintendo has to do is give them a first party franchise like they did with Retro... If Plat Games made a Starfox or something else to that extent it would put them on the map... More people would be interested in buying games from them and it would increase sales of previous titles.
@bobacdigital Platinum Games president has already said he wanted to make a Starfox game. So, they will probably make one before the end of the Wii U's life cycle. But at the end of the day Nintendo will let Platinum do their own thing. They won't force them to do anything. Look at Monolith Soft. You don't see their main studio making Pokemon games lol. No! They stick to what their good at. Xenoblade Chronicles and X. Disater Day of Crisis didn't pan out but they allowed Monolith Soft to make it. I expect if Platinum does become a 1st or 2nd party they will still make those bloody vicious hack and slash games along with a Starfox. That's Platinum Games! The reason why Retro Studios are kind of locked down, is due to the fact that when they first started they made a lot of games that were bust. These games never made it on store shelves due to bugs and flaws. But when they made Metroid, that's what they were good at. Monolith is good at JRPG's.
@ZHZ90 The Wonderful 101 hasn't even reached Western Civilization yet. I expect it to sell well here, the demo is loved by just about every Wii U owner. Platinum has already said this game would cater more to the Western audience.
1. Well they have a great relationship, and it is a great opportunity for BOTH of them, honestly 2. Too early to tell, its been only 2 days for TW101 and only 30000 copies have been shipped. We will know more next week and in the coming months when it arrives here. As for Bayonetta 2, it has the making of a system-seller ,as was the first one (which was overshadowed by the billions of FPS games out there), we will see when it arrives. 3. Hell yes, I played, liked and LOVED Bayonetta and Vanquish. 4. TW101 may be just that. Bayonetta 2 may be too. Nin and Plat make a GREAT team, that cannot be denied.
They're a "B" gaming studio nothing would be lost imo. ;)
No wonder MGR felt more like a B game, then a AAA MG game lol
Said the "D", at best, troll gamer.
I hope kojima team learned from platinum how to make a hack and slash game . I want a sequel to MGR on fox engine for next generation !! :D Kojima helped platinum , so even if they turn into nintendo-studio , they still can help kojima on MGR2 .
It would indeed be great for nintendo but what about mgsr 2 and vanquish2? ..... (:((
Nintendo is in perfect position to release hardcore, niche titles and platinum is in just the position to get bought up. With platinum's game sales, none of which hit expectations, they are in a rough spot. If nintendo made the financial push and they made the games it would benefit both companies. Eventually im sure theyd strike gold with an ip that is critically and commercially successful. Nintendo owners just need to embrace them as they did Rareware, or ps owners have naughty dog.
As a Wii U owner, how could I not jump at the idea of Platinum being a 2nd party developer. Nintendo is surprising a lot of people lately, with the price cut of the Wii U and the 2DS coming seemingly out of left field. Adding a talented group like P* would only help bolster their game library, not take away from it.
I definitely Agree "Intelligent"
I saw this coming a mile away. Platinum have expressed desire to make a "Star Fox" game. This means that they are not, in any rate, in a hurry to be rid of Nintendo. Nintendo should do it.
If platinum do end up joining Nintendo I would like to see them make a new IP i want a mature game with alot of blood a game u wouldn't let your kids play.
