Nintendo just need to shut up for a couple of months. Everything they've said until now only angers their fans.

Theyellowflash301264d ago

LOL, or they can shut up till the NX comes out. Seriously, this company has serious issues. But they will be bailed out by mobile and other shit they have been doing to make money amiibo ect.....

DarthZoolu1263d ago

Or they can listen to hardcore gamers like me that spend $160 or more a month on games.

Turning Animal Crossing into Mario Party and shoving amiibos all over it? This was the most disappointing thing shown by Nintendo.

How about put the amiibo's down for 5 minutes and just focus on making a good Animal Crossing game? They put amiibo sales as a priority with this one and the game looks to have suffered because of it.

I'm a big fan of this franchise and I don't even want to go near it. What a waste

Agreed. I had very high hopes Nintendo was announce a real Animal Crossing game for Wii U at E3, and instead we got this crap. Hell, I would have been happy with a new 3DS game, as long as it wasn't this spin off garbage.

Amiibos started off ok with Smash bros, but now they're WORSE than DLC. In Splatoon i wanted to get those extra arcade games, and to get EACH one you need to get an amiibo. Thats 35 bucks for a couple minigames

Isn't that the thing with all these gaming features


They all start out so small and when people complain no one bats an eye lid...hell people end up defending them like how people defended the shit out of Ammibos. Then in the future...BAM it hits us and it's too late

Yet now look at what's happened.

Imagine if each DLC pack, even skins or whatever were roughly £12 EACH

Nintendo has been really money hungry lately. These Amiibo's are all about making a profit, they even created artificial demand by not making enough to go around. They're also casting hardcore fans aside on franchises they love, by making freaking spin off titles like this and Metroid. Not to mention how sad I was to see the new StarFox look like it was made 10 years ago. It's sad to see them going down this route, as I have so many fond memories of the N64 and Gamecube era...

Good-Smurf1264d ago

This new starfox looked terrible really.
Even Luigi's Mansion which is a launch title for Gamecube looked better.
I'm pissed that this is the best they come up with Animal Crossing it just another game to sell amiibo actually right now Nintendo is all about 3DS and Amiibo
Wii U they simply gave up on it.
Nintendo just literally stuck in 1950s selling cards and toys now,the stuff they did best since 19th century!
If that's not an indication of how out of touch Nintendo is with fans and gaming industry then I don't know what is!

Shnazzyone1264d ago

Yeah, I just wanted the Amiibos. Game should be free.

JamesBroski1264d ago

That's why I always pick you over Charmander and Bulbasaur!

_-EDMIX-_1263d ago

Nope, I disagree. As an Animal Crossing fan, what I want is anything but Animal Crossing, lets say, an Amiibo game, party type maybe? Yes..that is exactly what I want.

Soooo why on earth is Nintendo some how surprised that a fanbase of a game, don't like its new entry.......that is a whole different genre? I mean you got to be kidding me, they are just in another realm of lost. Some folks legit at Nintendo need to be fired. They don't know what they are doing...

What game publisher do you know, of a damn IP which had a game do 33 MILLION UNITS! ....turns it into some home making game, then into a party game, yet expects wild sales and excitement? Can they really be this slow? Leave it alone, add on to it....make money.

They would turn Call Of Duty into a racing sim, they would make Assassins Creed into a party game lol, at this point..I'm convinced they are allergic to making games people want!

Nintendo needs a restructure. They're so out of touch.

If they thought this was what the fans wanted, it shows just how out of touch they are.

Give us a REAL AC game Ninty.
