We need both 2D and 3D Metroid games definitely.

As for Paper Mario... Gawds. Come on Intelligent, let's go back to the GameCube days.

Enough 2D games...the market is over-saturated.

Isn't Mario, Kirby, Yoshi, Donkey Kong enough?

You can't compare a 2D Metroid with any of those series.

Those are not series. Those are characters.

Those characters appear in multiple series of multiple genres. Some 2D, some 3D.

Nintendo needs new compelling I.P with broader appeal

That's a decent step. But that seems to be aiming at the same Nintendo fans that probably own a Wii U already. Not a new target market.

Nintendo makes multiple new I.P.s a year.

Their core franchises already have the broadest appeal of any given game series in the world.

They have games that range from nearly every possible genre and some that are only unique to Nintendo.

Sometimes I wonder if people like you live in another dimension.

You obviously haven't heard of Code Name S.T.E.A.M. either. How would I describe it? I'd say it's a compelling new I.P. with a broad appeal.
