Does Nintendo need new IPs?

#1Ritster21Posted 2/4/2013 3:05:35 PM(edited)
Friend: Nintendo has no good games anymore. All they have is Mario.

Me: Zelda, Metroid, Star Fox, F-Zero, Xenoblade, Kirby, Golden Sun, Fire Emblem, Pikmin, Kirby, Kid Icarus, Yoshi, Mother, Donkey Kong, Animal Crossing, Pokemon etc etc

Friend: Star Fox, F-Zero and Golden Sun are non existent now. Xenoblade is a new IP; we don't know if it will become a franchise. Kirby and Yoshi are casual-fest. Kid Icarus just came back; we don't know if it will continue. Whats Mother? Fire Emblem was almost non existent, we'll see soon what happens. DK is up in the air. AC is irrelevant. Pikmin is niche. That leaves Mario, Zelda, Metroid and Pokemon. Ninty needs some new IPs ASAP!

What do you guys think?

They have a whole bunch of IPs.... that theyre doing absolutely nothing with.

Your friend is right.

I dont think they need new IPs as it will reintroduce their current problem. Having a bunch of dead IPs left in the water with no futures.

It's not about graphics vs gameplay, it's about profits vs gameplay. Profits are more important than gameplay in this forum. -lgi on the Wii U messageboard

Pretty much the entire industry as a whole does this.

A few, maybe; more than anything though, they need to revive old ones.

They desperately need new IPs. I'm tired of playing the 100th Mario and Zelda games. They were good in the past, but its just old and stale. Nintendo needs to come out with some actual fresh ideas.

I'm going to call it, this conversation didn't happen and is secretly you seeking vindication on a board that will agree with you.

I'd be more naive, but I've seen this done a hundred times before.
