RUMOR - Nintendo bringing big, plentiful first party support to NX

The following comes from Emily Rogers...

- in a single year, the NX will build a larger library of games than Wii U produced in three or four years
- goal behind NX is to vastly increase the software output from Nintendo’s first party teams and studios
- entire process of how Nintendo develops and produces software has gone through radical changes
- new strategy that was put in place to create and release first party software at a faster rate
- multiple unannounced Wii U projects were moved over to NX
- NX could potentially see the highest output of first party software over its lifespan in the company’s history

Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice, shame on you. I'll wait and see how many of those turn out to be ports of stuff we already have and like or stuff that's late but for some reason 3rd party thinks we'll be interested in x years later while they release a superior version at the same time on different platforms (aka. Mass Effect 3 vs Trilogy scenario). .

Count me in!!! Since the Wii Nintendo output has been dreadful. If you look at the NES - GC Nntendo had a lot of big titles coming out every year. I just hope that they don't sacrifice quality over quantity! They also need to get 3rd party support up and make more deals on exclusives. Get the wallet out Nintendo! Pay for them!!!

Do you even realize how much lengthier and expensive game development has become? Since you are comparing current output to NES, or even Gamecube, apparently not.

I do. However, looking at what their 1st party devs have outputted over the last few years it's likely they have quite a few titles in development. We know at least Pikmin 4 and Zelda are likely. So that leaves a few other in house studios releasing nothing for a few years!?!

Also I believe looking at his history Nintendo's new president is more aggressive much like former president Hiroshi Yamauchi was!

I guess time will tell. I ain't expecting 6 big titles within the first year! But I guess we will get more big titles from Nintendo like we did with N64/GC as the market has went back to the core gamer once again n

Makes sense, considering the merging of the console and handheld divisions under the NX ecosystem.

And between launch Wii U ports / remasters, new NX games, VC, and a lion's share of the NX Handhelds' titles [aka everything bar main game Pokemon titles, I bet], then software output will indeed be greatly improved.

On one hand I hope this is true, but on the other, I hope this doesn't mean that we're going to get a ton of low budget games. I would prefer having fewer but more robust, larger scale titles rather than more but shorter, shoebox scale games like the Wii U had.

This is sounded too good to be true...

"- multiple unannounced Wii U projects were moved over to NX "

So the people who got a wiiU will feel even more screwed if that's true!

as I have said, they are working hard to make the wiiu irrelevant EVEN as a legacy console.

good, time to get hacking now! I got BIG PLANS for wiiU homebrew!

Well that would be good. Let's hope it's true.

The one thing I think is funny is how majority keep saying that they feel cheated for buying a Wii U. I have had a Wii U since launch night (1 of 2 received in my area) and have made AWESOME memories with the Wii U. In fact, I have over 103 games on it. How about the people feeling cheated stop looking to only play games like Smash, Mario Kart, and Mario 3D World and honestly play other games on the system. I mean, sure, if you played the handful of games that everyone else raves about, I can see how you'd feel cheated. The games and the fun are out there. Plus, now there's a backlog of games to play! If you need suggestions, I'm more than happy to help point gamers in a good direction.

I'm guessing Nintendo will have a mixture of Wii U ports, remasters/remakes, third party collaborations and a couple of money hats to have this kind of output.

I'm pretty skeptical of this happening though.
