What old franchise should Nintendo revive first on the Wii U?

Star Fox
F-Zero
Wave Race
Top-Down Zelda
Show me the results.
Nintendo must release a SMB game at launch with a similar artstyle to Epic Mickey 3DS.

I`m saying this because if Nintendo launches a Mario for Wii U so soon after it`s launch it will hinder 3rd parties a lot.


Dont' think so. A new Mario game at launch would sell millions of consoles and many of these gamers would buy some third party games too.


Mario games do sell consoles, that`s exactly why you don`t need a Mario game on launch or on launch window because Wii U will sell itself for a good time. A Mario game, be it 2D or 3D, would work better when there`s a market or at least a chance of supplying retail with enough consoles and at launch you can`t do that.

If Mario launches a console people are going to overlook 3rd party games for a good time before giving other games a chance and Wii U needs is attract PS3 and Xbox 360 gamers as soon as possible. More, a short of consoles would hinder that transition and that would result in lesser sales for hardcore games.

In my opinion, it`s best that Nintendo keeps those big hitters for a later date to sustain sales.

I just gotta second this point! WiiU will sell itself for a while (IF backed by Nintendo with other games that is!) and then you just release 2D Mario upon the up coming PS720 to destroy them!



I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

Shocking news as an analyst talks sense for once!!!

About time too!

Edit: And with regards to a Mario title I'd say there's a good chance that Nintendo will release it between February and May because they'll need to keep momentum going after Christmas and the New Year when sales of all products dip due to people being skint after Christmas. And we'll probably have another big hitter before Christmas next year in an attempt to overshadow the releases of the PS4 and 720. Probably not a 3D/2D Mario but a Mario Kart or a sequel to DKCR.

the awesomeness keeps on coming! I wonder thu what joelcool will make of this: he don't think it's such a great idea to launch WiiU with a 2d mario...


I stand by what I have said releasing a Mario game any main Mario game within the six month launch window is a bad idea. With all the announcements and leaks pointing to over whelming third party support Mario is not only over kill he would be counter productive. I also stand by what I said about 2D Mario it should not be present within the launch year ideally.

Of course however I can understand why it is coming. Its not coming for profits or business sense. It is coming for political reasons share holders need to have full confidence in the WiiU and shareholders are not often educated in the industry and how it works. Nintendo needs something that will renew investor confidence and show Nintendo is going to be a success. As I said Mario within the launch window is ridiculous over kill. But I'd say Nintendo needs to show Mario at E3 even just for the sake of investors.

I am just hoping Nintendo keeps third parties as well as new and lesser popular first party IP in mind when launching Mario. I still suspect Nintendo will announce Mario for Summer/fall 2semester

Actually, this is shocking.

I think a fall 2013 release is the smartest release date for Super Mario 4. With full online and offline coop. The choice of 2D Mario would be ideal for combatting Sony and Microsoft's new hardware since they will give Nintendo a hard time winter 2013. I still however stand by my initial business plan in regards to launch line up. I thin Nintendo's focus should be on new IP as well as some under developed less popular IP and a couple rebooted of old popular IP. The big guns shouldn't be present till next winter and the fiscal year starting in 2013-14. That includes Mario, Zelda and SmashBros. Though I think Pokemon would be a smart IP to use within the first year of WiiU. In fact a day one Pokemon XD sequel for Japan alongside the announcement of a Final Fantasy and Monster Hunter would secure Nintendo's dominance in Japan.

Maybe a FFXIV and FFXIII Versus ports. Or a version of FFXV, but I'm not expecting a major FF exclusively for Wii U.

For Pokemon, PokePark 2 has been released too recently, so no. And mainline games are only portable. expect to continue that. And won't be surprised if the same occurs to MH.

About a 2D Mario, well, is not going to persuade to early adopters to not buy PS4/720, but will help to keep a decent amount of consoles sold.

Pokemon Battle Revolution launched in Japan on the 14th and Wii on the second. So a Pokemon like that with full online play and even some mini games like the Mii quest in streetpass could make the game push the console.

An exclusive FF or a special version could be the thing the series needs to get on it`s feet again. Nintendo`s crowd hasn`t got a FF for years!
