81GamesakeFri 8th Mar 2013 So when this thread asks do we want new IPs, the question isn't do we want new kinds of Nintendo games (Kid Icarus Uprising), the question is do we want Nintendo to stop working their existing characters into all their new games, right? Would Kirby's Epic Yarn have been better off without Kirby's star power? I don't know. I would have been fine with it just starring Prince Fluff, but then maybe the game would have bombed. Personally I'd be fine seeing new games that don't guest star familiar Nintendo characters. But that doesn't mean Nintendo would be wise to retire their old moneymakers. They have a strong heritage that other gaming companies can only try to emulate. ...in my pants.
