Why haven't they made this obvious game yet?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Why haven't they made this obvious game yet?

Why has Nintendo not made a Mario and Luigi game for the Switch or at least announced one, also where id Mario Strikers Switch. The latter would do pretty well in Europe if they market it right.



Please excuse my (probally) poor grammar

You may be an intergalactic numbskull who screwed up Ratchet and Clank's adventures, but you have a point there.

Why haven't they made a good 3D Sonic game since Sonic Generations?



Some days I just blow up.

All bad PR Insomniac really holds a grudge against me. If Ratchet and Clank where not best buddies with the devs of Insomniac and even somewhat apealing as characters I didn't have to safe the series by being a numbskull in the first place. But how is Nintendo treating you, they basically made you a suïcide terrorist so not much better I figure. 

As for Sonic, probably because Sega and pure 3D platformers simply don't really mix.

Nintendo is well known for hating money, so this is a moot point, but...I have a top 10 for this, though it's in no particular order.

Why haven't Nintendo made:
1. A Pokemon open world action RPG that lets you visit every region, catch every Pokemon, get every badge, battle real people all over the world, etc.
2. Their own Kingdom Hearts like game with a protagonist that travels to various Nintendo worlds and fight alongside all the Nintendo characters against a threat to the whole multiverse (Smash Ultimate's World of Light doesn't count)
3. Even one attempt at a WRPG (BotW doesn't count, but serves as proof that there's demand for it)
4. A Nintendo style Mass Effect in the Star Fox Universe
5. A sequel to Eternal Darkness (if they'll make Bayonetta games, then clearly the M rating isn't the issue anymore)
6. A new F-Zero game (it's gotten so bad that indies are making F-Zero clones to meet the obvious demand)
7. More spinoff games featuring less utilized characters from Mario and Zelda to explore new gameplay concepts and expand the lore(an action game where Daisy saves Luigi, a game where Waluigi does weird shit in attempt to become famous like the Mario Bros., a game where Bowser saves the Mushroom Kingdom from an outside threat and you get to run around kicking ass with his brute strength, a stealth action game with Sheik that shows what the Sheikah do for the royal family of Hyrule, an RTS where Zelda leads Hyrule's forces to unite the kingdom, the possibilities are endless and Nintendo explores almost none of them)
8. Crossover fighters besides Smash that would play differently and thus wouldn't compete directly with Smash, like the obvious Nintendo vs. Capcom
9. Use the lore of the aforementioned Nintendo Kingdom Hearts game (whatever they came up with to connect all the Nintendo worlds) as an excuse to extend Mario Kart into a sort of Super Smash Kart (they already have Zelda and Animal Crossing, so they might not need a lore excuse and could just do it if they wanted)
10. Proper sequels to series they've ruined by trying to make it appeal to a broader audience, like a Paper Mario more like TTYD, Wario Land instead of Wario Ware, releasing Pikmin 4 already instead of whatever Hey Pikmin was (we'll probably get this one actually), and a true Chibi-Robo sequel in the spirit of the original game (or just release the Japan only sequel in the West) instead of that platformer bullshit they gave us instead.



There needs to be an open world Dark Souls game.  Take the combat, character development, look and difficulty of a Dark Souls game.  Now put all of that in a huge open world like Breath of the Wild.  Why haven't they made this game yet?

So uou've thought about this then :D. And YES, where is F-Zero gone? Wipout omega and Red out have proved the genre to still be popular, they should get on that.

And for that matter where is Perfect dark... I remember playing it on Xbox and now with MS and Nintendo all lovey dovey it'd be a great time for them to vomr together and revitalize the series.



 

Everything in the above reply is my opinion, from my own perspective and not representative of reality outside of my own head!

-Android user, please be gentle with critique on my spelling.

-Nintendo making a Western RPG game.
-Lord of the Rings: Total War (I know I know, we have Warhammer I and II, and they are fantastic, but still).
-A good Narnia game. Loooong before "Winter is coming" became a thing, Narnians feared the endless winter produced from the Ice Queen, and prayed for the day of Aslan's return. Have the developers of Shadow of Mordor/War do it.
-Paper Mario TTYD-like game. I know that Super Paper Mario's sales probably gave them the idea that creativity is the way to more money, rather than sticking with traditional RPG roots, and Sticker Star's great sales didn't help, but hopefully Color Splash will tell them to return the serie to its roots.
-Some kind of story drive game focused on all the Nintendo worlds.

I've thought plenty about it. That was just the top 10, and as you may note I combined a lot of stuff like "proper sequels" and "spin-offs with minor characters". I think Perfect Dark might have been taken with Rare when Microsoft bought them, but like you said, MS is getting cozy with Nintendo, so anything could happen. Nintendo could make it into their own Metal Gear. But there are a ton of IPs they've allowed to just fade into history, I just picked the most glaring ones with the most obvious potential for money for the top 10. Golden Sun needs reviving. Diddy Kong Racing deserves reviving, though it would probably require work with MS and Rare. Super Mario RPG deserves a sequel, especially if they're not going to make proper Paper Marios anymore and the Mario & Luigi series continues to veer off course as well. Pokemon Snap deserves a sequel, particularly if they keep up their work with VR (though it also should have gotten a Wii U sequel). Kirby Air Ride deserves a sequel, especially if Sakurai is truly done working on Smash for good now. The Mother series deserves a sequel, and the only reason Mother 3 being officially translated was left out of my top 10 was because I just don't care anymore as I'd rather just play the fan translation and have them continue the series. There are a ton of IPs that deserve little eShop games as sequels, like Ice Climbers especially, on the scale of other eShop only IPs like Pushmo or Dillon's Rolling Western. R.O.B. could be reborn as a Labo accessory that utilizes Augmented Reality gaming mechanics. So much endless potential in their bottomless pit of dead IPs, I could go on forever.

As I suspected, I forgot it was a rare title but makes sense now that I played it on Xbox. Hopefully with MS trying to build their IP they will see the merit in reviving Perfect dark. Metal gear status though, nah  I doubt it, they could get a solid IP out of it though.

Alright, maybe not Metal Gear level, but it could be on the level of Goldeneye, but without depending on rights to the James Bond license.
