Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Which post-NES console introduced the best new Nintendo franchises?

 

I choose...

SNES 18 29.51%
 
N64 22 36.07%
 
Gamecube 6 9.84%
 
Wii 11 18.03%
 
Wii U 1 1.64%

The Gameboy needs to be on the list for introducing Pokemon.

Also, I vote the Gameboy for introducing Pokemon.

I did indeed forget Astral Chain, I've added it to the OP.

Still not sure about games like Geist or Pandora's Tower, they're Nintendo published but I'm unsure if they actually own the IP.

Ganbarion developed the game Nintendo published the Pal version and Xseed published the NA version , so the developer most likely owns the IP.

Edit it turns out that Nintendo released a NA digital Edition later without Xseeds knowledge so they may own it , aren't you glad I cleared that up for you.

Wonderful 101 belongs to Nintendo.
PlatinumGames were even surprised that Nintendo allowed them to published It on other plataforms.
And i am not sure, but i believe Endless Ocean is a Nintendo ip too.

No it doesn't, Platinum Games own the Wonderful 101 IP, they gained it from Nintendo as part of the deal that saw them sell their 50% of Astral Chain.

Third-party franchises don't count?

I'm gonna say the SNES either way.

I meant Nintendo franchises, sorry should've been more clear about that.



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

Its pretty Hard but i would go with Wii and Xenoblade.



Donkey Kong Country was introduced on the SNES, right?? 

Wii is my choice.

SNES: Mario Kart, Starfox, F-Zero, Pilot Wings

N64: Smash Bros, 1080 Snowboarding, Paper Mario, Animal Crossing, Sin & Punishment, Mario Party

Gamecube: Pikmin, Luigi's Mansion, Geist, Eternal Darkness

Wii: Xenoblade, The Last Story, Pandora's Tower, Wii Sports, Wii Fit

Wii U: Splatoon

Switch: ARMS, Labo, Ring Fit Adventure, Astral Chain

Also, some I'm not sure whether or not they're technically Nintendo IPs: The Last Story, Endless Ocean, and Pandora's Tower for Wii, Eternal Darkness for Gamecube. Can anyone shed some light here?

Nintendo owns all.

As a note, Wave Race 64 was a sequel.

And while Paper Mario became its own brand, the original game was developed and promoted as a sequel to Mario RPG.

I don’t think Geist and Eternal Darkness would count since these are third party games that were published by Nintendo, but were one-offs rather than franchises.

Nin owns Eternal Darkness trademark.

Gamecube for Pikmin and Luigi's Mansion, they are pretty neat.

Wii U for the Xenoblade Chronicles X franchise



SNES or N64, c'mon. The other systems are not even close. Putting things like Pandora's Tower and Geist in the same vein as freaking Super Mario Kart, lulz. Xenoblade is nice but it's a B-tier Nintendo franchise at best.
