I don't see why not, but it's not like they'd be pulling in the Madden/FIFA/2K fans. Less conventional interpretations of sports, like Inazuma Eleven, would probably be a good bet for them alongside some Mario games.

THIS... THIS... THIS!!

I had this growing up and I loved it!! I was stupid to buy All Star Baseball 2000 the next season though... It was a solid baseball game, but it was considered REALLY stiff from Ken Griffey's Jr's Winning Run.

They also had Kobe Bryant in NBA courtside!! That game was HELLA FUN!! I used to come over and play that at my friends house... Good times!!

They could contact major sport stars if they wanted to. I am 110% if they contract Cristano Ronaldo to some deal for a Soccer game, they will sell MILLIONS, just on his name alone.... and the game can be completely average.

You might be on to something bro.

Another good example.

Sadly many Nintendo fans want Mario in everything and games like this would probably not sell.



 

 

Yes and they should be made by former Sega sports developers. In addition, Nintendo should develop realistic sports games without Mario.



I would love to play realistic simulations of sports games. I am not going to buy an extra console just to do so. So, yes, I would love for Nintendo to develop their own sports games. But like many have already said here, I would like it to be in the vein of Ken Griffey Jr's baseball on the N64. Not a Mario themed game.

Yes and no.
They should make some sports games, but they should use Miis instead.

Nineto shoudl fricken create a new angel studios and make real sports games.

Here is an example og one, better than anythign EA did with baseball:

Oh man, what a great game. I would love something like this.



They sort of do, just not on the poorly selling Wii U.

Without the major licenses for the teams and the players from NFL, FIFA and MLB, even a Mario sports game won't do much nor draw the crowds that like those games.

There are options such as going complete fictional leagues but it still wouldn't be the same as every American football game released after EA and NFL signed their exclusivity deal found out the hard way.

I wonder if Nintendo could get a license from the NFL.  They could argue that since EA isn't making the game on their console, someone else should be allowed to have the rights.

This is probably all academic though.  I doubt anyone would even try.

I think the market for games like Ken Griffey Jr. MLB and Kobe Bryant NBA left Nintendo a while ago unfortunately.

So there isn't much point to going that route.

Perhaps they could do Mario NFL Football and let EA co-publish it (since they have the NFL license). That might be an OK play. Mario FIFA could work too.

Neither of these would be game changers or anything but they'd probably sell a decent 800k-2 million WW.
