    Radical Idea: Nintendo EPD spining-off internal development teams

    in Nintendo Discussion 1 day ago

    Sarkar said: As far as I remember Nintendo used to make not only mainline Mario and Zelda games but also, Mario Kart, Smash Bros, Pikmin, etc. as well. Now it's just the mainline Mario/Zelda and Splatoon. along with some low effort gimmick shit like Labo, 1-2 Switch and the Ring thing. These are more of toys rather than Videogames anyway though so not sure if it's worth bringing them...

    Radical Idea: Nintendo EPD spining-off internal development teams

    in Nintendo Discussion 1 day ago

    Sarkar said: That is not true. Nintendo EPD output lately has been abysmal. What have they made for the Switch? BOTW which was just a Wii U game delayed for their next system. Mario Odyssey, Mario Maker 2 and Splatoon 2. Those are the only well received ones barring those they’ve made Arms, 1-2 Switch, Labo. That’s it.  With 11 teams and given how small scale most of...

    Radical Idea: Nintendo EPD spining-off internal development teams

    in Nintendo Discussion 1 day ago

    GuyDuke said: That is basically the system that was in place before Nintendo merged everything into EPD. They had 5 different EAD software group, each dedicated to specific IPs.  I believe Nintendo has felt the need to pool all resources into one single development beast, as the average yield of all EAD individual teams was pretty poor at that time. It's a creative way to speed up...

    Radical Idea: Nintendo EPD spining-off internal development teams

    in Nintendo Discussion 1 day ago

    All First party Nintendo software production is run through the Entertainment Planning and Development division, led by Shinya Takahashi. In addition to having its own internal production groups, EPD also has teams dedicated to oversight of Nintendo's external developers and games such as MonolithSoft, Intelligent Systems, Camelot, HAL Laboratory, Retro Studios, Next Level Games, among others....

    Nintendo 2020 predictions

    in Nintendo Discussion 2 days ago

    AngryLittleAlchemist said: You're making a huge stretch by saying "Mario related". Don't play naive. Yoshi and Luigi's Mansion are basically their own franchises. A port to try to put steam in a dying system hardly counts, especially when it's the last release for Nintendo's old 2-console model.  They're still Mario characters, they're still set in the Mario universe....

    Nintendo 2020 predictions

    in Nintendo Discussion 2 days ago

    Lonely_Dolphin said: It is one per system but that was when they had to make Mario Karts for both console and handheld. They were also brand new games each time rather than an enhanced port. A new game on Switch wouldn't negate MK8D, sure it'll undoubtedly take some sales away, but having two 15m sellers is better than one 20m seller for example. If MK9 skips the Switch, I think the...

    Nintendo 2020 predictions

    in Nintendo Discussion 2 days ago

    Lonely_Dolphin said: I'm still not convinced Mario Kart 8 Deluxe will be the only Mario Kart on the system. If Mario Kart 9 is ever gonna happen, it's gotta at least be shown next year. Yeah, I'm beginning to doubt that more and more as time goes on. MK8 DX is STILL making Nintendo so much money, and Mario Kart is typically one-per-system like most of Nintendo's other series. It's...

    Nintendo 2020 predictions

    in Nintendo Discussion 2 days ago

    AngryLittleAlchemist said: Yeah honestly if it wasn't for the fact that I think Nintendo wouldn't go for 3 Mario games per year I'd agree. Actually you could probably Switch BOTW2 with Mario Odyssey 2 on my list and just erase Mario Golf altogether, who knows. Mario's not just one series though. There's multiple Mario-related games released each year in one of various series....

    in Nintendo Discussion 2 days ago

    AngryLittleAlchemist said: Can't tell if late next year will have the release of Breath of the Wild 2, or Odyssey 2. Not really sure, I think they're both as likely. But I don't expect them in the same timeframe, so if I had to pick one... I kind of feel like Mario Odyssey 2 is more likely next year ... but I also feel like it's time for a new Paper Mario and Mario Sports spin-off, so...

    Nintendo 2020 predictions

    in Nintendo Discussion 2 days ago

    We're in the final stretches of 2019, and Nintendo's lineup for the rest od the year is pretty much locked. So now it's time to look to the future. With the 3DS now fully in it's grave, Nintendo is now near 100% dedicated to the Switch, and 2020 will be an interesting beast. Next gen systems are arriving, and the Switch will be in its third year. Nintendo will need games and lots of them, so...

    Nintendo's New Fit Game (Ring Fit Adventure™)

    in Nintendo Discussion 3 days ago

    curl-6 said: TheMisterManGuy said: Not sure why some are still rolling the "Nintendo didn't make new IPs until Splatoon" argument since that's always be a load of bullshit. Sure, you can argue that they played it too safe in the Wii U days, but it's not like Nintendo didn't like making new things and then Splatoon came along and suddenly they do. I never said Nintendo...

    Should Nintendo double down on working with "AA" studios

    in Nintendo Discussion 4 days ago

    Kai_Mao said: I think Nintendo should double down on more AA titles in this sense, the AAA third party developers (with the exception of Square Enix) do not appear as interested in developing new titles for the Switch. I mean look at Capcom. Besides Mega Man 11, I believe most of Capcom's support are just ports; controversial ones at times. That's a far cry compared to the 3DS support.Tokyo...

    Should Nintendo double down on working with "AA" studios

    in Nintendo Discussion 5 days ago

    KLXVER said: Are Sony really buying up a lot of studios? I can really only think of Insomniac and they are definitely not AA. It's moreso Microsoft than Sony, but yeah, medium-large sized independent studios are getting bought up by the big two in an effort to prepare for the increased costs of next generation. Sony acquired Insomniac so far, but they said they were looking into...

    Should Nintendo double down on working with "AA" studios

    in Nintendo Discussion 5 days ago

    One thing I like about Nintendo vs. most major publishers is that they're regularly able to occupy a middle-ground between AAA and Indie games in terms of scope and production values. With most of their games, you can tell they're given a larger budget than a typical Indie game, but most also don't rival the sheer costs of conventional AAA games. Over the years, Nintendo has worked regularly...

    Nintendo Developer Spotlight: Shinya Takahashi

    in Nintendo Discussion on 12 September 2019

    When it comes to Nintendo executives. The ones everyone thinks about currently, are Shigeru Miyamoto, and Yoshiaki Koizumi. Miyamoto has been the face of the company for many years, and Koizumi was responsible for the Nintendo Switch as we know it, as well as being the primary host of Nintendo Directs. But an executive that plays the most important role at Nintendo regarding games is also one...

    Terry Bogard in Smash. And how KOF inspired Sakurai to make Smash.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 08 September 2019

    Hiku said: Because Sakurai was (supposedly) against the competitive play styles of Melee, and added a random tripping mechanic to Brawl to prevent it, I was under the impression that Sakurai didn't like and didn't play competitive fighting games. But hearing his KOF story, I understand that the intention didn't come from him disliking those games, but that he wanted to create a game where...

    cycycychris said: I'm not sure I see what the appeal of that would be. Switch fit is obvious from the trailer. Labo didn't capture the casuals, maybe this will (probably not) Maybe this is supposed to be some exercise thing? Labo was meant to be a niche product for kids who like Lego and similar stuff, perhaps this will fill another niche. The great thing about the Switch is that...
