What should Nintendo do with some of its less prominent characters?

I won’t leave you guessing. I’ll state the names right off the bat: Daisy, Wario, Waluigi, and most recently, Nabbit.

Only one of these characters has starred in their own games so far. Their reception has ranged from relatively warm to ice cold. Their appearances are varied in frequency. It’s reasonable to say that none of them have truly come of their own yet. So what should Nintendo do with some of its less prominent characters? (3DS, Nintendo, Nintendo DS, Wii, Wii U)

An outlandish, hilarious, random rpg. If they can do toad the treasure hunter , they can do something like that.

It could play on the idea that they get no play time so they all get together and go.on a adventure

Make a beach volleyball game starring them maybe

When you say beach volleyball ball, do you mean something like this?

I can totally picture a Nintendo game like that. Just replace the DOA girls with Nintendo's female characters.

Or do you actually want volleyball to be the main focus of the game? In that case, it sounds boring.

Start licensing them to thirds parties and let them make games for those characters.

This could solve the software drought.

GTA with wario as the main character, Peach as a professional lady, and people buying and selling toad.

Nobody wants to use them.

What? Nobody just wants to use your characters; that not how licensing deal work.
You make it sound like they're doing it for free and out of the goodness of their hearts. Property owners usually offer a sum of money and pay for the development of the project and that's an offer any smart third party would not turn down.

They're already doing this with their franchises. Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem and Hyrule Warriors are both examples of Nintendo licensing out characters.

I know you're a troll but I just felt like this needed to be a addressed.

I'd love a new Wario Land on 3ds. I remember played the second one to death. Something like that would be awesome. A NSMB U dlc done like super Luigi u would be awesome with Wario and Waluigi taking lead,give like 80+ new levels and challenges.

Cellphone games. It's what Nin should have done long ago with characters that are obscure or completely forgotten about. You make a cellphone game, give them exposure, and than make a modern Wii U or DS game around them to capitalize on the exposure.

Or they can just skip the crappy cell phone game part and just put the games on 3DS.
