Sorry, i've been away for a while. Anyway, is it really first party or is it merely publishing rights that Nintendo has? Microsoft used the same thing with Gears of War. People tried to argue whether Gears of War was first or third party and its quite clear last gen Gears was merely a third party exclusive with publishing rights. Microsoft only recently purchased the IP before they made the Coalition. Same thing with Sunset Overdrive. Microsoft only recently gave back publishing rights to Remedy for Alan Wake, so now they are free to do remasters anywhere they please for the specific game.

Bayonetta 2 and 3 are really first party. Nintendo funded the development, so they own the copyright for the games with Sega.

Bayonetta 1 is only published by Nintendo on Nintendo consoles, so it remains third party.



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

You just described publishing rights. This is why I used Gears of War as an example. Its an actual third party that became first party.

Yes, I described publishing rights for Bayonetta 1. The problem is that you are seemingly unable to grasp that the legal situation is not the same across all three Bayonetta games. Copyright and publishing rights are absolutely not the same thing, hence why Octopath Traveler was never counted as first party game.

Nintendo co-owns Bayonetta 2 and 3 with Sega despite not owning the IP itself.

Astral Chain and Link's Awakening, both physical.



Oh, and one third party game (Star Wars Pinball, physical), since the last time I updated.



Hola.
