Recently this seem to be a trend with Nintendo letting other companies develop new entries or remakes to games that they themselves made. Such as Namco Bandai developing Wii Sports Club and Smash Bros Monster Games developing Pilotwings and Excitebike. Next Level Developing Punch out and Luigi's Mansion. Is EAD incapable of developing games what happened that they can't make these games in-house like back in the day?

You know EAD isn't the only internal studio, right?

And they just finished Mario 3D World right now...

Wasn't it not long ago that some people complained about why Nintendo wasn't letting other companies take a go at some of their franchises? Now we're seeing people complain about why Nintendo isn't handling their games themselves......

Damned if you do, damned if you don't. That seems to be Nintendo's lot in life.

I don't remember ever wishing that. I've always been against it.

Well, Nintendo's internal teams can't make every game ever. If you want more games in a shorter time span, you'll need more people to do that, and there's a limit to how much manpower Nintendo can spare.
