Legendary video game developer Shigeru Miyamoto says that the company is working on more spin-off titles to help improve the flow of Wii U software.
Lol...Nintendo talks about getting more third party games for over an decade from time to time. And the result...less and less. With the exception of a ton of shovelware a la PETZ on wii.
You didn't read the article. This is talking about collaborative titles. Like Hyrule Warriors. Or working with companies like Namco to get games out faster.
They are talking about 3rd Party exclusives and off-spin nintendo titles and not normal 3rd parties, like Witcher3. If you know what I mean.
Even though the results have been mixed, I think this can only help. Nintendo is doing as good a job as anyone could of trying to save a console by themselves, but they just need more software. I.E., even if Hyrule Warriors wasn't great, it's still for the better that it exist.
Go go Miyamoto. LOL Great to hear that he wants to bring more 3rd party support to the Wii U.
Go go, Cornholio I invite you to read the piece and not just the headline.
I think a few collaborative projects and new IPs like Splatoon from their smaller studios (not mentioned but still quite relevant) will be interesting, but games like Hyrule Warriors aren't really adequate substitutes (it wasn't particularly good, in my opinion). Nintendo is really going to have to wise up with their next console. If they have some good open policies, they should be able to snatch up the majority of awesome indie games on the market and a few 3rd party games this gen. That would be a good start. But they're going to have to deliver a console that 3rd parties can actually work with, and take seriously as part of a long-term vision/revenue stream. It's likely a lot of Wii U ports were just poor cash-grabs because they weren't really invested with a string of future titles for the system. It's good to see them trying though.
The Wii U IS a platform that third parties can work with. They just need to focus less on half-assed ports of multiplats that gamers would rather invest in on other consoles, and more on collaborative exclusives that will draw attention and create them some reliable revenue. Multiplats are a lost cause on Nintendo home consoles, going forward, so long as third parties don't care about making them on-par to other versions in all aspects aside from graphics. No one, for example, would purchase the next CoD on the Wii U's successor if third parties don't repair the broken trust players have in the multiplats they bring to Nintendo's home consoles, by giving them all the same gameplay content.[extra stages, multiplayer modes, etc etc etc] It'd also help if they'd stop making all of them late. That's what killed Watch Dog's chances of ever selling on Wii U. Going forward, exclusives are a better bet than multiplats, for third parties that want to sell well on Nintendo home consoles. Not guaranteed, by any means, but still a better bet.
The problem is, 3rd parties as it relates to multi plats, are not working with Nintendo- Nintendo has not some anything so far to change that- it is their job to make their consoles viable for 3rd parties or they will continue to stay away If Nintendo is not going to make an effort to get 3rd party support for the Wii u with then software droughts it s had, what makes anyone think they will try to get it on their next console I think they are planning to be a Nintendo box with 2ndarty exclusives and the occasional 3rd party collaboration -
Nintendo shouldn't have to do anything to get third parties to put all the same gameplay content into their Wii U multiplats, Dunban. Ghosts, AC4, and all the other multiplats, should have gotten all the same content, modes, and extras that the other versions got. The multiplats are a bad bet for Nintendo, and it would actually be smarter for Nintendo to focus on collaborative titles instead since third parties are too stubborn to do their own multiplats justice on the platform 99% of the time.
I would love to see Irrational Games make a new Metroid game they did a awesome job with BioShock Infinite I know they can do the same with Metroid
Yes, please. The Wonderful 101 has become my favorite game of all time, Hyrule Warriors gave me plenty of mindless old school fun, and now I'm having a blast with Bayonetta 2. Here's hoping Devil's Third is just as fun, and that Nintendo does more third party collaborations! :3
Kid Icarus for the Wii U Nintendo make it happen
mmmm. Nintendo looking to create more spin off huh? I wonder if one of the spin off game would be like Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare. A Nintendo warfare game with all of Nintendo's popular characters battling it out in Nintendo land would be a good idea In my opinion.
But they're already making Splatoon, so I think it unlikely to make another shooter game. The only genre that they seem to use for various IPs seems to be 2D platformers.
Well, you can never have too many FPS. Splatoon seems like a great game. Though, I do agree that the only genre that they seem to use for various IPs seems to be 2D platformers. Personally, I think Nintendo is doing very smart business by creating a bunch of spin off games. The reason I say that is b/c the 3rd party devs don't have to spend lots of time on coming up with new ideas and concepts which should save some development cost.
Maybe they make a spin-off Metroid FPS title. That would be more like a Halo game, than Nintendos take on any kind of sports game. Splatoon is basically that, a shooter added with nintendos fun flavour, but it would be nice to get one, that is a little more serious.
Build a better system next time and stop focusing on gimmicks and youll be ok. That narrow minded thinking and lack of advancement in online features is also haunting you. The Wii made you gazillions and you thought that same avenue would produce fruit but sadly its spanked you!!!! Stop living in your own Nintendo world full of bright, cartoony graphics, big weird controllers, archaic online components, weak hardware and Mario, Mario, Mario and ill buy your next console!
Nintendo needs to bring back Metroid Prime. Ninja Theory is a bunch of mewling losers.
