Over the decades, countless incredible franchises have graced Nintendo consoles, some of which have been neglected.
Golden Sun is overdue for a return.
only if they do it right like the gba version. The 3ds was horrible
Banjo-Kazooie isn't a Nintendo franchise anymore Conker was never a Nintendo, especially since non of its game were even published by Nintendo
Nintendo never owned Rare or the original IPs that the studio created during the N64-era. I can’t believe the author lists Conker and Banjo-Kazooie as Nintendo franchise, despite both series having releases and re-releases on Xbox consoles.
Nintendo owned 49% of Rare at one point. Rare was a second party developer up until Nintendo sold their stake to Microsoft.
I don't think the author ever said first-party titles. A game that only appears on one console can be considered a franchise of that console.
Not true On the back of the Diddy Kong Racing box art, this was written "Trademark of Nintendo, Diddy Kong, Banjo and Krunch characters licensed by Nintendo" Meaning Nintendo licensed those characters to Rare. Note how Conker isn’t among the listed
No that means Nintendo licensed those characters, meaning they paid Rare for their use. Conker wasn't in Diddy Kong Racing and they never owned any of them.
Nintendo licensed Duffy Kong, Banjo and Krunch from Rare.
@ where There’s already proof that Nintendo at a point owned the Banjo-Kazooie franchise http://trademarks.justia.co... Trademark History: Nintendo of America Inc - Original Registrant Nintendo of America Inc - Owner at Publication Nintendo of America Inc - Original Applicant Conker debuted in Diddy Kong Racing alongside Banjo https://www.youtube.com/wat...
@ Sci That doesn’t make sense. If Rare owned those characters mentioned in the trademark then there’d be no need to specifically mention just those three in particular as being licensed by Nintendo
Still waiting for Golden Sun.
I'd really love another Conker, but not as long as M$ owns the IP.
I think the writer might want to look up Double Dragon Neon.
As far as I know Double Dragon was never an NES franchise it also appears on various consoles in the day I own the Master System cart of Double Dragon. Double Dragon also appears on the Genesis besides the SNES and there is a sequel called Double Dragon Neon on PS3 and Xbox 360 as well as pc Double Dragon 2 and 3 might be NES only titles. Conker and Banjo could get a sequel on an XBox system since Nintendo never owned the ip's or Rare.
You got some things wrong there
But Rare franchises aren't Nintendo franchises. Ask MS why there are no new entries in those series.
