They make a million 2D and now even 3D Mario rehashes that sell millions and millions, yet they can't do this just because it won't sell well?

Nintendo needs to make a proper console style RPG game once again.

Because of Square, maybe?

Not only that, but Paper Mario (N64) was pretty much what we're getting in the way of a sequel to that game.

You don't need Square, though, to make another Super Mario RPG. Most of the creativity behind Super Mario RPG was actually by Miyamoto, and Square just mainly helped out in developing.

Square owns the rights to a lot of the characters, so if you want a true sequel you will need square.

Paper Mario on the N64 is the sequel to Mario RPG. It was even originally titles Super Mario RPG 2. After that Paper Mario TTYD -> Super Paper Mario -> Paper Mario Sticker Star. That last one came out last year, give them some time.
I'm not a gamer, I'm a Nintendrone. Here's proof I live to serve Nintendo:

Mario RPGs = take effort and don't bring in tons of money.

Generic Mario rehash platformers = almost no effort at all and sell millions every time.

My thoughts exactly.

Nintendo has no passion anymore, it's all about that easy money.

Then what was the point of paying square that much money to make them a game? They would have done it themselves
