OK, so they're not EXACTLY the same - that'd be no fun. However, I think that the constant references to "non-specific action figure" was a sly nod to those in the know, if you will, and we might see some Rainbow action at E3.

Discuss.

I used to have a blog link here. I'll put it back up when the blog has something to read.

Now this is reading into this.

also we get it, they used an action figure in a video. do we really need hundreds of threads about it?

Well I genuinely think they might have been hinting at it, so I thought it was worth an extra thread. I hadn't seen anyone else point it out.

I love NSAF just as much as the next guy,but we dont need multiple threads on one topic,theres already one thread about him so you might as well bring the discussion over there.

As I said, they're not exactly the same. I'm thinking Nintendo didn't want to stick what is obviously Captain Rainbow in the video, so they just went to a dollar shop, bought a blue action figure and spend 2 minutes painting him to vaguely resemble CR as sort of an in joke/hint.

It's possible, but there's a LOT of other explanations.
It would be much cheaper to get an action figure and edit it VS creating a new one from scratch. Or it could just be a coincidence. Or the guy who did the action figure might just be a fan of "Captain Rainbow".

My SD Card with the game on it is just as physical as your cartridge with the game on it.
I love Nintendo, that's why I criticize them so harshly.

or this could be the new version of captain rainbow

It was just an Action Fiigure.
Its not an new IP, we probably wont even see it anymore.

That's exactly what i'm thinking! Or at least, a new IP

Anyway, i doubt it is a new CR game. Appearenty the first game was a big failure in sales.

Maybe we could get Captain Rainbow as a downloadable title on Wii U? That would be cheaper for them to do, right?

It would, although it'd still cost them to translate it (although I don't know how much text and voice is in the game, and therefore if it would be hugely expensive or not).

That's the kind of thing I was addressing a while ago on these forums - Nintendo could potentially release digital-only versions of games that aren't guaranteed hits, in order to reduce the risk to them.

Other than their eye shape (and only the shape) and the blue body suit/ skin (and the "superhero" build), they look nothing like each other at all.

I hope this happens. Earthbound? Fire Emblem? Starfy?

This would require them to significantly increase their size limit for downloadable games. Have they said anything about that?
