This gen is when some Nintendo IP's may change

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - This gen is when some Nintendo IP's may change

Legend of Zelda was...well, different compared to a typical Zelda game. Not only was it enjoyed by everyone (even from rather harsh critics), it was something which proved Ninendo is great at keeping their franchises fresh. 

Saying that, I think some of the bigger series will be given the same treatment as well. Chances are Kirby, Pikmin, and series similar to it will just keep evolving its great gameplay. The bigger franchises like Mario, Donkey Kong, Animal Crossing, and others may be different than what we typically see.

 

Pokemon: Sun/Moon was rather different than most Pokemon games. It didn't have much to do after the game, but it had an excellent main story. Unfortunately, the 3ds severely limited generation 7. Gamefreak honestly was hurt by having it on the 3DS. With the Switch, their budget will most likely be bigger for multiple factors (including the bump from 240p to HD). This is a strange theory, but I believe they have been working on a Pokemon game for the Switch at the same time as Sun/Moon. Either that, or they are just gonna make a modest entry to test out the Switch and then try to make generation eight huge.

Either way, I think Pokemon can  keep on evolving. It is great, but improvements in the quality of the games will always be welcomed. I really enjoyed soulsilver for being able to visit two regions and having ridiculous amounts of post-game content- hopefully the Switch will have a S2/M2 which will let you go to Kanto to visit Lillie (it'd work with the story).

 

Donkey Kong: Donkey Kong is a great series. Tropical Freeze was one of the Wii U's only good games, and it really shined on a dull console. 

As great as it is, I was always curious on whether a 3D donkey Kong would work. Would Donkey Kong benefit from moving away from its current style, or would it ruin what makes Donkey Kong great? 

 

Animal Crossing: Chances are there was an Animal Crossing U in mind, but it was quickly stopped. AC is a great, there's no doubting that, but it is obvious that more power gives us more oppurtunities. 

I think Nintendo should really focus on Animal Crossing. New Leaf was amazing, and a worthy successor would be another addition to the Switch's lineup. A bigger world or game-changing features can really improve this franchise. 

 

Metroid: We have constantly been teased about a new game, and chances are we may get one. If we do however, will it be classic Metroid or something more along the lines of Prime? 

I think Nintendo will make a game similar to Prime to make a wider audience for the Switch. It will help more hardcore gamers see some interest in a mature Nintendo game. What does Nintendo need to do to accomplish this? Only one thing- they need to make a Metroid game (no- federation force doesn't count).

 

 

 

That's about it- my ideas probably aren't revolutionary or anything, but it is an interesting topic.

Nintendo usually mixes things up with their franchises. That's one of the reason they have such longevity.

Great game. Personally I prefer the series as a sidescroller but to each their own.



" Rebellion Against Tyrants Is Obedience To God"

For Pokemon that's not really all that different. The majority of first entries in a new gen have very little post game content and a good mainline story has been done before too (B/W for example). But yeah, I do agree that Pokemon can keep on evolving, IMO it's actually a long way behind on this. It's had plenty of cool features that have then been removed in later gens and each gen isn't really that much of a step up from the previous in terms of either graphics or world size, with the exception of gen 2 and its 2 regions of course.

Also, would love a 3D Donkey Kong. Largely because 3D platformers are the only platformers I like, but still



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

I agree that they will be willing to make more drastic changes to games of existing franchises.. but I'm not so sure about Donkey Kong and Animal Crossing. I feel those will stick to the roots pretty well with new additions of course :p

New isn't always good, but would really like to see what they can come with if they choose to with these games or others

 Can't wait for all of these games (along with spinoffs like Fire Emblem Warriors)

Well two of them are confirmed and the other two are rumored so we'll see how things turn out for the Switch. Imagine even a remake of past FF games like VI or IV.



A person actually remembered that Pokemon changed up the story format. How remarkable.

And yes the Post Game was weak. That's kind of a problem Pokemon games generally have, particularly generation starting games.



The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?

You are curious whether a 3d donkey kong game would work? The answer is obvious, seen as a great 3d one already exists. Also I can't believe you said Donkey kong TF was the only good game on Wiiu
