Why 2 years? Seems like an arbitrary number of years to make the comparison. how about this we do a comparison of a the current generation of consoles, i’ll Even combine Nintendo’s new IPs for both WiiU and Switch.
Nintendo new IPs for Wii U and Switch:
***Octopath Traveller is a SE IP not Nintendo, like Ryse is a Cryrek IP not MS.
Microsoft new IPs for XB1:
Sea of Thieves
Ori and the Blind Forest
MS has a good edge on Nintendo, although both look irrelevant compared to Sony.
Sony new IPs for PS4:
You correctly call out Octopath Traveler as not being a game from Nintendo, then you declare a bunch of Indie games as Sony property. That's funny. If we would do the same, we could easily declare Overcooked, Celeste, Axiom Verge and Steamworld Dig as Nintendo games.
Next up you name a lot of games that are still unreleased. It could be years until Ghosts of Tsushima release. We know this tactics: for years every year we read about The Last Guardian in all list declaring why the next year will be the best year for the PS3. Yeah, PS3. Nintendo tends to unveil their games closer to release. I bet with you, that before Ghosts of Tsushima releases, three new Nintendo IPs are releasing as well.
And then you convieniently forget about Nintendo and MS IPs. For Nintendo you forget for instance Denpa Men, Dillon's Rolling Western, Tomodachi Life, Miitopia, Steel Diver, Pushmo, NES Remix and Sushi Strikers, from the top of my head.
After all it is not that Nintendo creates less new IPs than the others, just your perception is warped. Which is normal, we all have a bias. But just don't take your bias for fact.Last edited by Mnementh - on 18 December 2018
