Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Iwata Cites Cheaper Software/More Remakes For 3DS, No Price Cuts.

Wait till Nintendo surprises us all and releases a remake of final fantasy 5 and 6 for the N3DS and to make us shit ourselves Nintendo will remake mario RPG legend of the seven stars with DLC sidequests for all 3 games. :)

What about Wii U pricecut?


Easy solution dont buy this and next years same games(Fifa 15 and 16 etc.) and then you basically got yourself a 120bucks price cut for WiiU.


This month I bought a XBO with Sunset overdrive because the last 10 games I bought I bought discounted = 300 bucks to spend for the XBO.



Tbone, be cool. This thread feels dangerous for you.

Maybe I've been lurking in the wrong threads, but I don't know where this idea that Nintendo fans hate remakes has come from. I was under the impression that the brunt of the criticisms against MCC came from it not functioning properly at launch, and that the circumstances around the "definitive editions" -- releasing just a year after the past-gen versions, sometimes after the publishers had specifically said they weren't looking into current-gen ports -- were the cause of derisive remarks.

I fail to see how Iwata's statement here makes Nintendo fans appear any more hypocritical than they already did, if indeed they did. Nintendo fans love remakes. They've bought Ocarina of Time and Star Fox 64 and Donkey Kong Country Returns and Wind Waker and Ruby/Sapphire and soon they'll buy Majora's Mask and Xenoblade. Iwata's comments change nothing.

You could of sworn a few Nintendo fans, like a few of every type of fans raging on remakes are a total cop out. No need to act like their the majority in this. (or only ones, just because ps4/x1 had a ton of them 1st year)

That said there's like what? 2 at most remakes/ports per year from Nintendo across from both their HH/HC. Another thing is the games they put out aren't just a year old port.

Anywayz, i personally dont really care as i dontlike remakes/ports in general and would rather thm spend their time on making new games.


I don't care all that much about remakes either, especially if it's the same game with only redone visuals, as opposed to a new game entirely with added mechanics etc. The reason I mentioned Nintendo fans is the massive storm of critique against games like "The Last of Us" remake and "Halo: Master Chief Collection" by Nintendo fans on this site, citing that "remakes are what are supposed to sell these consoles? The Wii U has all the best games and exclusives".

Regardless of whether or not they are year old ports; the fact still remains that Iwata seemingly thinks this will be sufficient for the 3DS this year, with it already looming over a very likely big decline yoy, especially since there won't be a N3DS in the West and no price cut. It's almost as if he doesn't care at all sometimes; not only have their ND's shifted focus back onto the 3DS again; but the main platform for their income will rely on semi-decent Japanese hardware sales and remakes to keep it afloat? It's a horrible, horrible plan at best.

Aren't we supposed to shy away from making such sweeping generalizations, especially moderators of all people? And I really don't get where this Nintendo fans don't like remakes talk comes from, we have been buying remakes/remasters/ports for decades. Super Mario Advance series, Mario 64 DS, Ocarina of Time 3D, New Play Control series, Star Fox 64 3D, Links Awakening DX, Link to the Past GBA, Donkey Kong Country GBA, Metroid Zero Mission, Wind Waker HD, DKC Returns 3D, the upcoming Majora's Mask 3D, Xenoblade 3D, Classic NES Series, hell the entire virtual console.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

last story!

what? I don't recall a statement that 3ds would ONLY have ports and remakes from now. and the new 3ds is releasing on west next week.

- Nintendo to make more cheap software for 3DS, remakes of past games for 3DS and ports of smartphone titles (I guess Mario: Puzzles & Dragons fits in this category); could be sold for as low as a few hundred yen. Low development costs for these games. Maybe we'll see a Mario 64 3DS? 

I'm interested to see what these cheap software are? Maybe eShop bite-sized games?

It feels like this is a treading water strategy. But then again I guess I wasn't expecting a flood of N3DS only games that infuriates and fractures their user base.
As for Wii U they should have really considered adding GameCube games to the library too. Maybe even lower the prices of VC games to encourage sales. They also need to find a way to add the Square Enix games they got on the Wii VC to the Wii U. There's so many games they need to add to the library that they refuse to do.



I seriously can't wait until the 17th.



Well, this is new.

Read.

WOW! That is a lot of misreading of my posts. I think I should just quit this thread. Feel free to PM me though.
