Does Nintendo Need More First Party studios?

Nintendo is fine just the way they are
Yes they can't support the Wii U alone
They can just keep paying third part studios for exclusives
I don't care

MAKE STAR FOX U NOW!

I think its pretty clear at this point that if you buy a Wii U you are buying it mainly for first party Nintendo games, so the question is can Nintendo really support an entire console with just their first party games, and lets not forget they have to support the 3DS too.  Honestly I think Nintendo needs more first party studios like Retro and Monolith to really boost its portfolio, both those studios have put out some of the best recent first party Nintendo games.  Nintendo has so many IPs that they don't use that are still money makers, so if they had more first parties like Retro  I think we would have a better chance of seeing those IPs return.

On a side note, Nintendo make Star Fox for the Wii U!

No i think they should do more deals with 3rd parties like Sega

PS3, Vita, 3DS and Wii U. 

PS4 eventually. 


they should support the ones they already own and not just Mario Kart, Zelda and Smash Bros

Yeah, half of their IP's never get new installments.


This shouldn't even need to be asked. The correct answer is clear as day.

No. They don't need to create more First Party studios. They just need to invest in the ones they already have and hire more employees to handle things instead of having a small-ish team handle a whole game.

Yes. This recent game drought along with certain studios being forced to work on big sellers is proof of that.

Since Nintendo is the only one out there willing to make Wii U games,,,YES

Please, no. We already get enough Mario games as it is.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

If they do that then we will just keep getting more of the same, but if they had some new first party studios I think they could really add some variety to their exclusives, like Monolith is doing now.
