    The Pokémon Company obtained $2.1 Bilion dollars in revenue last year

    in Nintendo Discussion on 06 May 2016

    So... Does Nintendo have a strangle hold on the PokeMon Company/IP? Is there no chance one day someone else could decide they want it? If so would Nintendo be powerless if the PokeMon Company wanted out?...

Nintendo need to do some gap filler games though, they cant just leave things as is and forget about the Wii U.

    Nintendo's actual earnings (prior quarter and FY)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 27 April 2016

    In terms of the coming year — 1st April 2016 to 31st March 2017 — Nintendo estimates continued profit but a decline in overall sales; the NX platform will only have a month or less on the market, for example, in the current financial year. A 0.9% decrease is expected in net sales, with an operating profit of 45,000 million Yen, around $404.9 million / Ł277.8 million / €357.8 million, and a net...

    Best SNES graphics

    in Nintendo Discussion on 23 March 2016

    They might not have aged well but what about Pilotwings, F-Zero etc. At the time mode 7 was incredible. Also Star Fox for that Super FX goodness. If DKC gets a mention I don't see why these shouldn't. DKC has aged, especially when playing on a modern TV....

    Things in Zelda that need to change

    in Nintendo Discussion on 21 March 2016

    What they need to change is the pace of the opening of the games. Twilight Princess and Skyward Sword take hours to get going. A Link to the Past was perfect in this regard. Within minutes you have a sword in hand and are in the first dungeon....

    This generation has the most Zelda titles from Nintendo

    in Nintendo Discussion on 21 March 2016

    Gen 4 had 2, Links Awakening originally came out on the OG GB. DX on GBC is a re-release. As far as those Mario games go, at least they're all new. If your counting Hyrule Warriors then what about Mario Kart/Golf etc? But yeah I get your point and do generally agree, there's too much Zelda atm, they should tone it down a tad imo....

    F-Zero X or F-Zero GX?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 23 February 2016

    X, reasons... RolStoppable said: F-Zero X. Better controls and course design. Boost maintenance. The machines drop like rocks in GX. You also can't avoid being lifted off the track by pressing up on the analog stick because up and down don't work until you are in the air. This makes some portions of certain tracks deadly for no good reason. Many tracks are also too long despite multiple...

    I think the reason the attach rates are higher now is because there's less choice on their consoles. SNES had great games from tons of third parties, Wii U just has Nintendo games so of course most are gonna have MK....
