Forums - Nintendo Discussion - A Nintendo IP Going Mature?

What Nintendo IP would mostly get an M-rated entry?

Zelda 2 3.70%
 
Metroid 32 59.26%
 
Sin & Punishment 6 11.11%
 
Xenoblade 3 5.56%
 
Fire Emblem 3 5.56%
 
Other (be specific) 8 14.81%
 
Total:54

Voted sin and punishment. Going by the Australian classifications they have all already been rated M btw ;)

What does Bayonetta have to do to be considered Nintendo IP at this point? Do they have to buy Platinum Games?

I thought Bayonetta was still a third party IP.

Australia needs to get that stick out of it's ass.



While a mature Zelda could be insanely badass, I feel like the IP realistically that could do it and pull it off would be Metroid.

I was hesitant to put Zelda in the poll because I worried it would be too much like God of War.

A picture says 1000 words, I wonder what Nintendo was hinting at with this promo-art for the original game?

 I think a mature Splatoon would look something like this.

LOL a porn splatoon game? Pretty sure you'd be labelled as a lolicon ...

I think you are right, but I see it heading to first party soon in a very Xenoblade-like manner.

Didn't the Chicken VS. Egg Splatfest have white ink for the Team Egg?

I thought Xenoblade was separate from Xenosaga (what Monolith Soft made before being bought by Nintendo).

I just checked this, and found that Monolith was bought by Nintendo earlier than I thought.  My fault. 


Still wouldn't be surprised if Nintendo bought either Platinum games or the Bayonetta IP though.

Even after the failure of Star Fox Zero?

This is the sort of thing that shows Platinum and Nintendo already have a close working relationship.  Even if Star Fox Zero flopped, Nintendo seems interested in keeping Bayonetta.  Also, I'm sure Nintendo wouldn't mind the Nier franchise becoming an exclusive on their platform either.

If they don't buy Platinum games, then they might try to make them an "unofficial" first party like HAL.
