I think it's pathetic how it takes Retro Studios 3 years to make 1 game.

Because of this they will never surpass Rare in my mind. During the N64's five year life span, Rare made 7 awesome games for it. Diddy kong racing, banjo-kazooie, donkey kong 64, banjo-tooie, goldeneye 007, jet force gemini, conkers bad fur day. And yet it takes Retro 3 years to make one. Why? Is it the lack of enough employees or something?

Dev costs and spending are much higher now a days. So working on multiple games isn't entirely wise. At least not more then 3 or 4 (if they are not AAA).

Plus you might have just answered your own question, TC.

It is a remake, not my fault you people think ports are remakes (but only on Nintendo systems)-Demondog666 on Kid Icarus Uprising

It's not their fault Nintendo is limiting their potential. As they said, they only have enough resources to make one game at a time, and help with something like MK7.

It's up to Nintendo to increase their funding and staff. IMO it's long overdue.

It's so cute when fanboys get all bent out of shape when someone says something legit, but is even the slightest bit negative towards Nintendo. Pathetic.

I'm not trying to dis or troll them. I love nintendo. In fact I'm going to boycott square-enix about not releasing kingdom hearts 3 on the Wii U. But even the most die-hard nintendo fan has to admit that it takes them too long to make these games. This is the problem they're currently having with the Wii U.

I have to say I kinda agree. I mean I would love to see more games from them. How many games did they made? 5? Metroid Prime and Donkey Kong Country? At the span of 2 generations.

retro fallows the nintendo code of conduct for dev work

small teams working on 1 game and not verry large studios

this allows a game to have less bugs becuse the dev team works so close together

and talk out problems quickly rather than going trew corprate chains
