@azg When was the last time a Sonic game took 2 years from when it was officially announced to come out? I'm betting Holiday or sooner for that title. They've been working on it for a while already. Besides, the show is coming out this fall, why would they wait a whole year to release the game?

@Jaz007 What they'll have to do is make the WiiU version have much more content than the 3DS one, and make it incredibly clear that it is worth it to get the WiiU version, even if they already have it for the 3DS. Otherwise, it will indeed cause great harm to the WiiU sales.

I really hope (for their sake) this isn't exclusive to WiiU. If it is multiplatform it has a good chance of selling enough to become profitable. If it is exclusive, there is practically no chance. Unfortunately Nintendo players will not be flocking to play this in droves, even if it scores above 9/10 from most reviewers.

Do people not understand what's with the artstyle? It's colored pencils instead of crayons. It's still supposed to be hand drawn, just with a more sophisticated medium.

If I remember correctly, the last game was often knocked by reviewers for being too challenging. It sounds like they listened. Probably means there will be fewer cheap deaths with tricky platforming and enemies that knock you back.

Assassinated commented on Platinum: Nintendo Has Been The "White Knight"...:

You know, I'm actually starting to think Nintendo's stance on backwards compatibility is going to hurt them in the long run this generation. WiiU will get several must have games, but people won't buy the system, because they assume they can play them on Nintendo's next console. Many already think the console is a failure, and will refuse to buy it regardless of the games it has. Bayonetta 2 and Zelda are the big ones I think will suffer from this.

@unrandomsam Of course Zelda will sell systems, but if it comes too late, it may be too late to save the system. I no longer feel as though Mario Kart and Smash Bros can turn the system's fortunes around, and while Zelda potentially could, it has to come before the WiiU is given up on (by the general populace) as a lost cause.

Assassinated commented on Feature: The Big Nintendo Direct Summary - 13t...:

This gave no incentive for someone to invest in the WiiU. The only unannounced game is a sequel to NES Remix, hardly a system seller. The potential for the WiiU is dwindling lower and lower, to the point where it almost seems Nintendo has given up on the system. One thing is for sure, they Cannot skip the E3 press conference this year if they want any hope of the WiiU not failing completely. They have to utterly knock it out of the park at E3, or else the console truly is doomed. Publishers are pulling support left and right, and so far there's only been 5 first party games announced for this year, with only 2 having firm release dates, one of which is coming next week. If Zelda does not come this year, I fear the WiiU will be too far gone for even that to save it. There's no hype for the system anymore, and the deeper the perception is that the system is a failure, the more likely it will become one.
Nintendo needed to blow us away with this one, turn that negative perception around, and show what potential the future has in store for the WiiU. This direct did none of that.

Subspace Emissary was the best way to unlock characters. Some characters would on ly appear after playing hundreds of hours in the brawls, but if you unlocked them in the Subspace Emissary you had them for good. I remember diving back in after finishing it to find Toon Link and Wolf.

Assassinated commented on Satoru Iwata Explains Reduced Projections and ...:

I knew they had no chance of making 9 million sales for WiiU, but their new projections are less than a third of that! I expected the revision to be between 5 and 6 million, not 2.8. And it looks like Nintendo is going to have their second loss in 3 years.

Assassinated commented on Nintendo Obtains IA Labs Patent Portfolio Foll...:

Hang on let me get this straight, IA Labs sues Nintendo for infringing on one of its patents. They lose and have to pay for Nintendo's lawyers which cost more than the worth of every single one of their patents?! And now Nintendo holds the patent they were being sued over!?

Assassinated commented on Nintendo Ordered to Pay Royalties on 3DS Sales...:

While I know he isn't a patent troll, from what I understand Tomia showed their technology to Nintendo, but Nintendo went with Sharp instead, yet they are being sued for using Tomita's technology which they did not use. Unless the wording of the patent is vague enough to encompass and supersede Sharp's patent's, it doesn't seem like Nintendo would be infringing.

Assassinated commented on Review: Donkey Kong 3 (3DS eShop / NES):

I very much disagree that Nintendo tends to mix things up on threes. Typically threes return to original gameplay style, whereas twos veer sharply from it. Mario 3 had a lot more in common with Mario 1 than either had to do with Mario 2. Look at the difference between the Legend of Zelda, Zelda 2, and a Link to the Past. Same goes with Metroid, Metroid 2, and Super Metroid.

Assassinated commented on Analysts Weigh In With Estimates for Wii U Fis...:

I feel at this point it is next to impossible for Nintendo to meet their projections. 9 million WiiUs and 100 million yen by April, when in December it's only half that, does not seem to be feasible. It makes me wonder if Iwata will be stepping down as he alluded to if the projections were not met.
