Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Should Next Level Games do an original IP After LM3?

Always go for the new IPs if possible, otherwise I'm sure nobody would mind a new Mario Strikers or Punch-Out !! either way :)

But would that new IP be for Nintendo platforms?



Some days I just blow up.

Yes, I believe they signed a contract to develop exclusively on Nintendo platforms.

In my opinion the N64 was not just the best console of the 5th gen but, to this day the best console ever created!

But I thought they were an independent developer.

They are, they're just signed with Nintendo as a "second-party" studio. Meaning, Next Level is still independent, but they use Nintendo as their exclusive publisher, so Nintendo's marketing teams, iconic IP, producers, and War Chest are all readily available to them.

Now hold on, we gotta see if Luigi's Mansion 3 is any good first. :L

Hopefully it would end up as a good game, unlike Splatoon/Arms.

I'm surprised you haven't been bashed for saying that.

So far previews have indicated that LM3 has great promise.

And as for Splatoon/ARMS, the numbers are there for AngryLittleAlchemist, so I guess it doesn't matter. I mean regardless, especially for Splatoon, all the merch, the concerts, and the sales and popularity (especially in Japan) show otherwise. So while anyone can say Splatoon/ARMS are not good games, the numbers can speak for themselves. 

It's like when people ask why is Animal Crossing an important IP when its a Life/Social Simulator, while being a popular IP within the female and Japanese audience.

As for the OP, NLG have potential to create a new IP. Whether they can get approval of Nintendo from a gameplay perspective will determine if it comes to fruition.

I hope so. Nintendo really needs more western-developed games with a unique feel. Not necessarily to compete with Sony and Microsoft, but simply to help balance out their largely Japanese-developed first party stable on Switch ATM, as well as give the brand some extra appeal to Western audiences. They are taking baby steps, Marvel UA3 while developed in Japan, was co-produced by the American Marvel Games.

I say that because there are certain people on this site who will aggressively defend games they like. Even if you still like the game too, if you don't share the exact same criticisms as they do no more no less, then your opinion won't be accepted. So for him to outright call those games bad is quite ballsy, but perhaps he's part of the in-crowd so they'll overlook this transgression lul.

I don't doubt Luigi's Mansion 3 will be great, but you know, can't be 100% sure until it's out. NLG has made a variety of different gameplay styles between Strikers, Mansion, Federation Force, so I have no clue what their new IP would be like.



Federation Force was basically that. Someone thought it was a good idea to attach that game to Metroid though which meant it got bashed heavily. It would probably have been better off if it didn’t mention Metroid, or was it’s own thing.
