All I'm saying is that you can't always tell how "big" a game is or will be before it releases. Again. Pokemon. The company making it almost went bankrupt, the game was almost cancelled, people worke without pay. Now it's one of the biggest franchises on the market, and the first game was one of the best selling of all time. As for things on the scale of what I think you're talking about, Fire Emblem x Shin Megami Tensei has been in the works for years, and while FE is done before, we don't really know how it will interact with SMT, or what game it will resemble more. Rodea was in the works for years, but apparently it doesn't matter because it was delayed and believed canceled for so long that everyone forgot it. Bayonetta is new to Nintendo and that was about on your scale. Hyrule Warriors was sort of new too. All of those are mostly efforts of third parties working with Nintendo while Nintendo publishes, so second party essentially.

As for new Metroid games, I want them too. I do genuinely believe they're coming, but I think we'll see them 2016, for the 30th anniversary. Development on them probably only started recently. That's not entirely baseless speculation on my part either, just me looking at when those articles came out about considering how to go forward with the series, which implied that they were in the first phases of developing two different games, one for the Super Metroid style and one for the Prime style.

Splatoon is NOT like de Blob. That was more of a platform puzzler. Splatoon is a shooter. The fact that both involve colorful ink in some way does not make them the same. Know why de Blob didn't sell? Because no one gave a shit about it for even a second. I remember precisely zero hype surrounding that game. Splatoon already has hype, and has had hype since its announcement. It's also a completely different game mechanics wise. Give it a chance.

Pokemon did take off, but before it launched people thought it was going to be amazing.

Splatoon........it's got hype on forums, but not so much the general audience. Nintendo just isn't what it used to be in the 90's and early 2000's. I mean compare 3DS to GBA for instance, it has so much less going for it. GBA had 3 Fire Emblems, 2 Advance Wars, 5 FF remakes + a Tactics FF game, and well so much. 3DS just doesn't have the same thing.

What WiiU has looks great, XenoBlade, Zelda and Starfox all look amazing and make owning the system legit, but it's not what it used to be like. Nintendo is living in a shadow of its former self, there is less innovation and risk taking them before, and it's getting to the point where it's all sequels. I mean compare WiiU to SNES, on SNES Starfox, F-Zero, Mario RPG, Mario Kart, Donkey Kong Country, Yoshi's Island, and Earthbound (outside of Japan) were all new IP's. Plus Nintendo got exclusive FF support, Dragon Quest, etc.

As for SMT x FE, I just don't like crossovers & SMT very much.

So overall, I'm feeling WiiU is another Gamecube. What is has is great, but on its own it's not enough. I need more.

@bold: All sequels. Clearly so much more risktaking back then.

It really feels like it wouldn't matter what Nintendo did, you'd just say it doesn't matter because it's Nintendo and this isn't the 90's. And really, 3DS isn't all that short of GBA gamewise. Also I just noticed that 6 of those games you mentioned are tactical RPGs, and the rest are RPG remakes. So much going for it, I see. If your definition of success is number of tactical RPGs, then fine, I guess GBA wins for you, but I don't define it that way.



I really want Fatal Frame over in Murica. I think it looks really fun and I wish to play it one day

I have to say I agree. Also 3DS is impressing me in ways no Nintendo handheld has ever before. I'm not hating on the GameBoy brand or the original DS's, but the 3DS is just a wonderful piece of hardware and really makes the most of handheld technology. Also the software is superb, and it's impressive to see how well everything looks on the small screens. Also comparing games, Fire Emblem Awakening>all GBA entries, TLoZ:ALBW>Minish Cap, Mario Kart 7>Mario Kart Super Circuit, etc. Saying that, I do think the Pokemon spinoffs (e.g. Mystery Dungeon) and this new crap they tried (Rumble Blast) don't compare to any Pokemon title released on GBA. Also X & Y aren't nearly as good as Hoenn, but we've got these sweet remakes from that gen so I guess it's all cool. (X and Y are still awesome)

No, don't get me wrong, I loved the GBA, but the 3DS is my new favorite handheld. Regarding Pokemon though, Mystery Dungeon started on the GBA, so don't blame 3DS for that. It also had Pokemon Pinball though, which was the shit, but that started back on the Game Boy Color. Aside from that, all GBA had was the GBA videos of a few Pokemon anime episodes. Worst idea ever. I'm sure we'll see a few new Pokemon spinoffs before the 3DS is done. Maybe even in 2015. Might be something totally new, like that Pikachu detective story we heard about a while back.



Aside from Zelda and Yoshi the list isn't all that interesting.



Sigs are dumb. And so are you!

Advance Wars & Fire Emblem were both new in the west, and Nintendo got 3rd party support. I missed FF on consoles and loved playing SNES classics remade on the GBA. 3DS is getting some N64 remakes, which is nice, but where is the 3rd party support?

RPG's are just what I like, and the question is what do I think. Overall though 3DS is meh, where are the Mario remakes? Zelda and Starfox Nintendo has covered, but what about 3rd party games?

Plus, things like the remade maps in Mario Kart 8, they are terrible, nothing at all like the classics, not like what the DS/Wii/GCN had.

I like it a lot. The only title which is a must have for me is Xenoblade. All the others range from "might" to "need to know more".

Splatoon, Yoshi, and Mario Party 10 have my attention.

And don't forget Fast Racing Neo, as one of the above posts states.


I said "non eshop exclusive games"
