Nintendo has long been very selective over their key franchises such as Mario and Zelda. Only in the last couple of three years has Nintendo actually trusted a company to take charge of their key independent properties. Sure, Grezzo was in charge of porting The
Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D to the 3DS, and Team Ninja developer Metroid: Other M for the Wii, but will Nintendo ever trust other third parties with Mario or Zelda?
If you had the choice, what developer would you like to see helm the next Nintendo property.
Many people would already consider the Wii U a failure based on the January NPD numbers. Doom and gloom is the order of the day, very similar to the way annalists chronicled the demise of the 3DS early on in its lifecycle. Clearly Nintendo benefited by launching the 3DS before the Sony Playstation Vita, judging by the latest sales data, but can the same be said for the Wii U?
What do you think? Did Nintendo do right by releasing the Wii U ahead of Microsoft and Sony?
It seems like we say this every year, but 2013 has the potential to be one of the best gaming years in quite a long time. We here at Infendo pride ourselves in not only providing you with the best Nintendo information money can buy (wait, I’m supposed to get paid!?), but we also dabble occasionally in the non-Nintendo realm of gaming.
This is one of those times. Here are the games that I am most looking forward to in 2013, what are yours?
