@Quorthon Nintendo always wants to secure its far future. As of today, their catalog is not enough to generate Wii U sales, even if the games are great.
They know they have to diversify. And it won't be only through smartphones.

That's why I think new IPS will come. Splatoon and Codename Steam are the first steps to launch big series. Even if Splatoon doesn't sell very well, it doesn't matter. What matter is that the game is good and appreciated. So buzz will generate and the annoucement of Splatoon 2 will have a bigger impact.
They have to rectify their shot with CodeName Steam and they will (it already has started with patchs and free DLC I think).

So, getting new ip's as popular as Konami's, if they were to sell, is in their interest. If so, Nintendo would ask itself for each of those IP "Is their a future for it ?". The answer for Metal Gear and Silent Hill is obviously "yes", because Nintendo doesn't have that kind of game in their catalog. It would be harder to get a proper answer for Castlevania because they have Metroid, but it's still a strong and popular ip.

Well, that's my opinion if someone asks me to what could lead such a decision as Konami's one to leave the video game business. They haven't for now

This analysis makes total sense. If it's true, I hope Konami will sell its catalog to another company. Like Sony or Nintendo, who would take great care of it.
I say Nintendo because I think they're gonna diversify their catalog a lot in the next years (imho the Wii U is the last hardware with only the usual catalog titles - they won't make the same mistake again) and yes, they could make a huge Silent Hill if they wanted to. Signs show they're more and more interested in more-mature games. It could be their opportunity to acquire hugely-loved-but-abandoned licences and orchestrate their rebirth. And to bring us the new Parodius we are all waiting for

nono6400 commented on SEGA and M2 Are Happy to Continue 3D Classics ...:

My biggest hope would be Story of Thor (aka Beyond Oasis), Castlevania Bloodlines, World of Illusion and Sonic CD.

And I would definitly buy Virtua Racing, Aladdin, Cool Spot, Earthworm Jim, Lion King, Batman & Robin, Castle of Illusion, Quackshot, Contra Hard Corps, Global Gladiator, ...

@Wonder-Redhead @FragRed Except that Capcom doesn't intend to release different versions of the game in the way you say. They were screwed by the architecture of the first SF4 which couldn't allow the digital updates. They changed that with Super Street IV, which can get huge updates as it did with Arcade Edition or Ultra.
And Street Fighter V will be like that : the next versions will only be updates. The name of the game might change (Super, Hyper, Ultra, ...) but it will be only be updates. So no, don't expect SF5 or its evolutions to come on another machine than PS4.

Ocarina of Time 3D was 512MB.

As for the difference with the N64 Rom :

  • Not the same resolution as N64.
  • More textures. And textures take A LOT of space. (and that's the only reason PS4 games need around 40Gb install place)
  • And... I don't know about musics and sounds but I think they take more space ? It was still something like midi on N64 (remember WipeOut which had loading time to unpack each music because they were NOT midi).

Super Castlevania IV is a very nice game... who aged. It's still a very good nostalgia moment for those who played it when it was released and it might still catch the interest of the others, enough to be played till its final credits.But its gameplay feels now very very old.

In my opinion, Castlevania Bloodlines (Genesis) is a little more interesting, Dracula X (Nec, Super Nes) is far more challenging and fascinating, and the masterpiece of the saga still is Symphony of the Night (PSone, Saturn)...
