It's Time For A New Nintendo Franchise

From Toasty Controller...

"Three men have practically created work for Nintendo for years to come. Some of these geniuses have passed down the title of designer for most of these franchises, but still work very closes with the programmers who work on the new games. This leaves us with one question: Do we have to wait for a new character until one of these three masterminds creates another one? Is there literally no one else in this company that can step up and say, 'I've been working on the design and concept of a new character' and simply pitch it to someone within the company?"

Because Xenoblade, The last story and Pandoras tower were not good enough? -_-

From my perspective, they really aren't enough.

I wouldn't say there not good enough it's just....well, it's hard to explain

If you look at Mario, Donkey Kong, Zelda, Kirby and even franchises which havent had much done to them like Pikman, Luigis mansion and Kid Icarus you just know there a Nintendo game by looking at's like a instant click inside your head that goes off and your like "Nintendo", but in my opinion Xenoblade, The Last Story and Pandoras tower don't have that despite being amazing games. They don't give off that Nintendo magic like the other know franchises do. Their new IPs just don't become as big as games like Mario/Zelda....maybe it's because of the Wii and lack of a good old classic controller...who knows

Nintendo have got to start becoming more creative again and take more risks

Didn't say they weren't good enough, they just aren't Nintendo developed titles. I love the second party support, but it isn't what I'm really going for. They need a new homegrown character.

there's Pushmo/Pullbox too! :) great game..

Metroid-Kart, that one is on the house...

I wish ninbtendo would lay off the gimices and focuse on what made them the company players grew to love. Their characters are all they got and a new one that has the ability to catch on sure would do them a lot of good.just as long as i dont have to swing my arm around the room to controll them...

I don't get why ppl hate on motion controls... games like skyward sword make me pray and thank god for motion controls...

Shok2458d ago

Xenoblade, Last Story, and Pandora's Tower are all pretty much new IPs, including smaller games like Pushmo.

Nintendo makes new IPs, it's just that for the most part they go unnoticed because Mario and Zelda games eclipse them or people don't recognize that a game is actually a Nintendo game (like Xenoblade)

But Miyamoto said that he was going to start working on new Ips that'll only take 1-2 years to make, so more noticeable IPs are down the pipeline for Wii U.

ThePsychoGamer2458d ago

In US Pandora's tower and the last story really shouldn't count with both they are unconfirmed and I'm pretty sure Mistwalker owns the IP to The Last Story.

Shok2458d ago

I think Nintendo actually does, since both The Last Story and Pandora's Tower were published by Nintendo.

Might be wrong though.

ThePsychoGamer2458d ago

Having the publishing rights to a game and actually owning the IP are to different things. Think how Microsoft owns publishing rights to Mass Effect 1, but Bioware still owns the actual IP or how Nintendo owns the publishing rights to Fatal Frame 4, but Tecmo Koei still owns the Fatal Frame IP.

3GenGames2458d ago

Crystalis. Nintendo bought the rights, I don't see why they don't use them. (Except it being better than Zelda is they doit) It's perfect to extend on, one main game and that's it. It's crying for a sequel.
