Analyzing Nintendo's Studios: Second Party

"We’ve been looking over Nintendo’s stable of studios to find out what is coming next by analyzing and examining their histories and current statuses. At this point, we have covered all of Nintendo’s fully owned teams, both internal and external. Now we move on to the second-party studios.

These groups all have varying relationships with the company. Though all the teams listed here have had at least one game funded and/or published by Nintendo, some have more of a connection with them than others; a few have made games exclusively for Nintendo’s hardware while others have only made one or two.

Either way, they all have the potential to create something in the near future, even if some of the studios have a higher game quality than others. Since there is such a high amount of content to cover this time, I unfortunately won’t be able to go quite as in-depth as before for every single studio, but this should give a fair look at just what all these studios are." (3DS, Dev, Nintendo DS, Wii, Wii U)

Shining Force, up until Shining Force III was also Camelot, as was Shining in the Darkness and Shining the Holy Ark. After they left the Shining series took a giant nose dive into horribleness.

Why Not both? I'd love a new mario golf or tennis on wii u. They both could use wii motionplus or a button set up on the wii u gamepad. Plus with sega currently close to nintendo they could work on a new shinning force also.

There's nothing I'd love more than a new, Camelot-developed Shining Force. Unfortunately, Camelot and Sega have not been very fond of eachother for a LONG time.

Oh shit, Golden Sun! How could I have forgotten that?!
I do believe they still owe us a conclusion to Dark Dawn, actually. The ending was left so wide open and even though the game was fun, it felt soooooo SHORT without another game to compliment it.

I agree; it's time for Camelot to return to its RPG kingdom.

I'm hoping that Platinum and Sega both forge much closer ties with Nintendo going forward.
The Wonderful 101 is an incredibly deep and addicting game once you've gotten into it, and Sega's still got a LOT of untapped back-log games that I'd love to see them revive, via new entries in said series' in collaboration with some of Nintendo's internal teams.

Should these be the external teams, and the external teams chapter be titled 2nd party?
Anyway, these kick ass. Really like reading them.
I can not express enough how badly I want a nintendo owned platinum to make a StarFox.
