Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo lost their last third party support

Purple said:


Extra levels is the big one. There was some mention of exclusive skins too from memory.


the wii u has exclusive levels too, i don't know how many but one of them is The Deadly Lights level. Extra levels doesn't necessarily make it the lead platform either.

Didn't they make developers keep everything quiet last year? Maybe they are doing this again this time.

Anyone know how long the ND is going to be tomorrow?


Have Nintendo ever discussed any third party games during a Nintendo Direct? (that weren't part of a partnership/publisher deal)


Yes. Need For Speed: Most Wanted is an example of one.

For those that aren't aware a lead platform is the platform that development started with and the code is ported to other platforms. It has nothing to do with features or extra content whatsoever. Come on people, this is video game 101. The Wii U is the lead platform for Rayman Legends.



I'll wait till the Direct to make an opinion on this.



Estelle and Adol... best characters ever! XD

well Nintendo should do more themselves like expand and shit all over 3rd parties! If I was Nintendo I would have been more aggressive in that department


I´ve been saying that for years now, that´s the only way for them to survive in the long run.

They desperatly need their own eco system and let the 3rd parties that want to particapate


 Nintendo increased their manpower to more than 5000 people recently. They are combining their hardware development divisions... I think Nintendo realized their position several gens ago... Iwata has also stated that they do not buy studios, since studios are only worthy as much as the people who work there continues to be motivated and willing to work with them.

I know, i thought his definition of lead platform was a bit ridiculous. As well as assuming that ubisoft cut off support. 



source? oh that's right assumptions.

can i sage this thread now?



“When we make some new announcement and if there is no positive initial reaction from the market, I try to think of it as a good sign because that can be interpreted as people reacting to something groundbreaking. ...if the employees were always minding themselves to do whatever the market is requiring at any moment, and if they were always focusing on something we can sell right now for the short term, it would be very limiting. We are trying to think outside the box.” - Satoru Iwata - This is why corporate multinationals will never truly understand, or risk doing, what Nintendo does.

I believe this is the Information people are talking about:

http://mynintendonews.com/2013/06/11/ubisoft-e3-show-host-says-no-new-wii-u-games-because-its-an-abandoned-platform/

Ubisoft referred to the Wii U as an "abandoned" platform claiming that they were moving away from developing any new core games for the system for the foreseeable future.

Correct me if I'm wrong but the Wii U no longer has any exlcusive levels as they're all in the Vita version.
