    Should Nintendo double down on working with "AA" studios

    in Nintendo Discussion 6 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...

Not a failure, modestly profitable, but it will show, as if it's not already clear, that the mythical "Wii Fit crowd" doesn't really exist any more.

    New Nintendo Switch Experience (Learn More on September 12)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 05 September 2019

    People are tired of having so much plastic shit (or cardboard) lying around their living room, this whole accessorie craze died around 10 years ago. Nintendo will keep trying, but I don't see these types of things being anywhere near the success of the pre-smartphone casual era, just like Labo was a dud. ...

    What's causing Nintendo's software sales on the Switch to be so good?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 05 September 2019

    The Switch's userbase is older than prior Nintendo systems and has more core-centric and enthusiast gamers. That will lead to higher software sales and a more rabid buying base. Every 5 years that passes, Nintendo gains more and more adult fans because every generational cycle sees more Nintendo fans who were once children graduate up into adulthood and a certain number of those people are...

    PortisheadBiscuit said: So in hindsight, Nintendo was the sacrificial lamb for the gaming industry to expand to what it is today.

    Will Switch sales success lead to better early 'Switch 2' support?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 19 August 2019

    TheMisterManGuy said: Only if Nintendo can prove its worth at launch. The mistake Nintendo made with the 3DS and Wii U was that because their predecessors were so successful, they assumed third parties would arrive with high quality games day one, so Nintendo put no effort into launching with a killer app on those systems, instead letting third parties take care of that. When that...

    Are there any years worse for Nintendo than 2015 and 2016?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 16 August 2019

    Probably 1993 ... they released Star Fox which was a big deal, but the only other major first party game for the rest of the year was Super Mario All-Stars which is a compilation of older games. Of course, back in those days it didn't matter as much because Nintendo had such great third party support. I actually didn't think 2015 was that bad at all ... Splatoon (biggest new Nintendo IP in...

    Will Switch sales success lead to better early 'Switch 2' support?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 15 August 2019

    Bigger question is will "Switch 2" be able to run whatever game engines the developers are making at the time without having to bend over backwards and cut too many corners. If they can port the games without too much fuss it would probably get a fair bit of support, but if it's a pain in the ass, most devs will just stick to PS5/XB2/PC.  ...

Apparently the terms of the deal would have given Sony a great deal of control over both. So Sony wasn't an entirely innocent party in that debacle like everybody thinks. Nintendo...

    Alternate history: N64 goes with CDs instead of cartridges

    in Gaming Discussion on 14 August 2019

    Nintendo got their nose bloodied by Sega in the 16-bit wars but it made them better for the N64 era. They were a hipper/cooler company by '96. That and the move to 3D really I think created a great creative focus for Nintendo with games like Mario 64 and Zelda: OoT. And you had peak Rare, Rare only came onto the SNES late in the product cycle, but on the N64 they were arguably the best developer...

    Shadow1980 said: I think Nintendo would have won, and handily so. People tend to forget that the PS1 was not an instant hit, and took a while to become truly successful. In all of 1995, it sold only 1.37M units in Japan, a very low number by the standards of the time. Shipment data suggests that it was likely outsold by the Super Famicom and may have done only about on par with or...
