Nintendo development rumors that are tough to believe

Pikmin concept coming from an unpublished real-time strategy project? Foundation of Mario Galaxy coming from a purchased prototype? These are the two significant rumors 01Net published today from the site's third Nintendo report. As always, they should be treated as speculation.

The PS3 isn't entertaining enough to keep kiddies from downplaying Xbox/Nintendo/PC at every opportunity. Ah, I see. :)

all the rumors 01net has been putting out this week feels like utter bullcrap. They may have a good track record but doesn't mean they haven't been wrong before.

Well I remember a lil game called Super Mario Bros. 2.

This might be false, but Nintendo's track record sure makes it easier to swallow.

lol. You used track record and Super Mario Bros. 2 in the same sentence.

The author references Pikmin (released in 2001) and Super Mario Galaxy (released in 2007). Super Mario Bros. 2 was released in 1988.

Are you seriously calling out Nintendo's track record between 1988 - 2007? Nintendo innovated more than any of its competitors in that time frame. They also invented the the shoulder buttons (SNES), analog stick (N64), and motion gaming in that time period.

This is brought up as if the so-called “original” ideas wouldve made the same amount of money as Pikmin and Super Mario Galaxy.

I love how this “information” surfaces now, after all of the success of Super Mario Galaxy 2. Super Mario Galaxy was released in 2007, and i have never heard this rumor before.

And of course, Pikmin is mentioned too. The same Pikmin that Nintendo confirmed to be released at the WiiU launch 2012.
