What titles will Revolution debut?

With all the speculation about the system itself, we're basically all in the dark regarding its release titles. Not only have they been tight-lipped on the system, but they haven't mentioned anything about an opening line up. I believe over the past few months [if my memory is correct] that Nintendo's president, Iwata, defiantly declared that both Mario 128 and the upcoming Zelda title will be released for the Gamecube. If that is the case, then what will Nintendo offer upon the Revolution's release which will be very close time-wise to those two games? Traditionally, Mario has always been their biggest and most reliable franchise when debuting a system. Would Nintendo actually be thinking "revolutionary" ideas by offering something else this time around to help sell their product rather than relying on the pizon? I'd be truly impressed if they did.

I heard that they've transferred Mario 128 to the Revolution. They'd better offer great software on a nonstop basis for the Revolution. Sorry, releasing one must-own game once or twice every year isn't gonna cut it.

Obviously with the inclusion of online gaming, there will be a lot more third party software available for the Revolution that has been drying up on the Gamecube in recent years.

Many people think that third party games just aren't selling on GC, but that's not the case. Third party titles on GC, especially in the early years, were selling better than Xbox titles and near PS2 levels sometimes.

But over the years, it just became a hassle to make games for the GC because it lacked features that could be made on the PS2 and Xbox, namely online play, so the number of games started to drop as online gaming became more popular.

Nintendo is banking in on the idea that Revolution will offer everything the other consoles have(great graphics, online games, etc) but also offer something that they could never do. This would give Nintendo the advantage that the other guys had this generation.

All Nintendo needs to do is show them what this idea is, if it's a hit, Revolution will be number one, if it isn't, the Revolution still offers everything the other consoles do as well, so it will still stay competitive.


Of course, I'm talking from a developer's point of view, who knows how the gamers and publishers will take to the Revolution.


Case in point, I think Nintendo is going to launch with a new Mario that will showcase the special features of Revolution, and with Super Smash Bros Online to bring in the masses.

Don't think online is a magical silver bullet, because it's not. Even with XBL, the best online service, MS will not be #1 this gen. Factor in that the Revolution is going online with an even less popular method instead of broadband, don't expect it to do much for the Rev. platform.

The only thing Reggie has said about software coming from Nintendo is that it will be a continuation of Mario, Zelda, Metroid. Not exactly Revolutionary, but sound business wise. Remember when Nintendo pushed GBA to GC connectivity as the greatest thing? That went nowhere, fast. That's why I don't believe Nintendo will deliver anything revolutionary at all.

The true revolution would be to have a consistent software release schedule (someone tell Nintendo we play games year round, not in the fall only), to not show teasers of games at a console's unveailing and then never release them (Mario 128 - mia since what? 2001?) , to realize GC owners do have component inputs on their tv's, and to actually push a console graphically - which this generation they left up to Capcom.

Well, not all gamers have component. Also, Wifi is a part of broadband. It just requires a wireless router. Basically, Nintendo will just have people with existing routers to upgrade to one with Wifi. Extra money spent, true, but it will be for a free on-line service, should Nintendo hold true to its word.

I sincerely do hope they come up with some new franchise so it's not a bunch of crappy Mario spin-off games, a Metroid here and there, and Link once every few years.... Not to mention the same Pokemon game remade over and over and over again with a few tweaks.

Keep in mind though they just said wifi was built in. That doesn't mean it'll be the only way to connect. The console could very well connect to a modem or have a modem connected to it. It already connects to computer monitors. Making the console one step closer to able to connect the most accessible gaming equipment. The simple advantages of wifi built in is wireless controllers, wireless net work, Nintendo DS use, ect.

If you think that Nintendo will not make alot of new franchises because what they did to NGC and GBA days then you most be happy because in that case Revolution will have alot of new franchises just like what Nintendo did to NDS(Nintendo made 8 new franchises for NDS)so just like what they did to NDS they will do the same to Revolution so that mean that you agree that Revolution have alot of new franchises and if you dissagree then you just want to talk trash about Revolution.

and there is no game that plays like Yoshi Touch & Go so what different would it make if they change the characters?
the game will still not change they just put Mario characters just like what they did to Doki Doki Dream Factory.

and about GBA to GC connectivity Nintendo are the same once that said that about NDS and they were right it was a great system and did sell 2 millions in just US and about 1 and a half million or more in japan and NDS games are realy new and never have been done before so the last thing that they said was true so why the next one will be any different?


Note- for those who did not noticed his excuses have turned on him.
