M-Rated Nintendo Franchise?

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - M-Rated Nintendo Franchise?

Which Nintendo franchise would you like to have an M-rated entry?

Zelda 4 7.02%
 
Metroid 22 38.60%
 
Sin & Punishment 4 7.02%
 
Fire Emblem 10 17.54%
 
Other (Please specify) 6 10.53%
 
None 11 19.30%
 
Total:57

I know Nintendo is famously marketed towards kids, but I'd still like to see which one of their franchises would go the M-rated direction.

For me Metroid is the most likely to do so, considering it already has a gritty sci-fi atmosphere mixed with horror, but what Nintendo franchise would you like to see have an M-rated entry?



Some days I just blow up.

Around the Network

I just want them to make games, if one warrants a higher rating is whatever, making a game M rated for the sake of it sounds dumb.



None.



Well, I want a new Eternal Darkness myself, that is already an M-Rated franchise.

I wouldn't like them to do M-Rated games just for the sake of doing it. For horror games, then yeah but the other franchise are going pretty well without the M-Rated "factor" put into the equation, so would they need it in the first place ? (Don't anwser, I already know it)

No need. As long as the game library is good is doesn't matter which company produces the game. Nintendo has been lenient lately so they should not have any issues.



M rating means sex or sexual content these days (typically) so no thanks.



Give Kirby a gun and some smokes.



Out of their franchises, the only one that I think would be able to pull it off is Metroid. Because the type of setting and atmosphere it sets, being a lone bounty hunter on an unknown and hostile planet in deep outer space, it matches more with a mature setting and tone. So, Metroid would be able to make that transition or leap easier than the other franchises.
Whereas with Zelda or Fire Emblem, they can only go so far before they are being Mature just for the sake of being Mature. At that point, it just becomes forced, unnecessary, and bogs down the experience.
