Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Monolith Soft interested in having its Kyoto studio work on original games

Jumpin said:

Retro Studios fans are annoying. Retro isn’t as good or important as you think they are.

Monolith soft is the real deal - in 2017 a portion of the Tokyo team released Xenoblade Chronicles 2 which they developed in its entirety, the rest of the team (the larger part, about 60% of them) co-developed Breath of the Wild. Before that, in 2015, they released Project X-Zone 2 and Xenoblade Chronicles X. I am unsure what the Kyoto branch has worked on recently, but in the not so distant past they co-developed: Animal Crossing New Leaf, Splatoon, Pikmin 3, and A Link Between Worlds.

I agree But I think this comes from some Nintendo fans desperate for Nintendo to have a Western Studio  similar to naughty dog

Retro were an elite studio once, but that was a long time ago. 

They were on the way and still could be elite, it is just that they haven't done any major games since tropical freeze. Their silence is worrisome for those that believed they would become Nintendo ' s big western studio like Naughty Dog, but the could still be doing great things behind the scenes like the company wide middle ware tools.

I just don't think a studio can really be considered elite when they've put out one game in the last 7 years.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Yeah, that'd be cool. I'd like to see what that team can come up with

When was the last brand new game Rockstar North put out? Would they really not be considered elite?

I wouldn't call them elite, no.

You wouldn't call the team that made Grand Theft Auto V, the greatest selling video game ever, elite?

Then what would you call them?

Overrated.

There's also a world of difference between GTA5 and Tropical Freeze.

First off, one is a 2D platformer. One and done. It sold 1.8 million units and has an 84% average review score, and no longer sells anything.

The other is an open world game that is complete with online features, and also doubles as a platform with a content release schedule; the latest about a month and a half ago. It's sold 85 million copies and has a 96% review average, and continues to be one of the highest revenue games on the market.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Yeah; Tropical Freeze is actually a good game. ;)

Wasn't the Kyoto studio supposed to be working on a 3DS project???
I wonder if it was scrapped...



Have a nice day...
