Nintendo: no u can't remake our Mario games in Unreal engine, it's our IP we love dearly!!!
Also Nintendo: haha, we know you guys love this game, go buy it again with little to no changes!!!
Also also Nintendo: I heard y'all like artificial shortages on plastic figures with NFC chips how 'bout we do it again!
It's just the audacity of Nintendo in some aspects that pisses me off.
so many products from them feel rushed just because "well the Nintendroids will buy it anyways!".
that's partially why I am glad why Metroid Prime 4's development got scrapped and the project was handed over to Retro Studios (which should have been the dev in the first place). it's one of the few Nintendo subsiaries that seems to mostly care about the games they are making ('mostly' because DK Country Returns 3D was kind of weird and because Mario Kart 7 could have been better).
they are not like the devs behind Mario Kart 8 (Deluxe), Mario Party New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe or even Pokemon. These seem to mostly not care about their games, or about the content given. they just care about shitting out a new game for people to buy.
funny you compared Nintendo with EA, because if I remember correctly they both used a guilt method to get people to buy their games.
if I remember correctly, EA did this with Dead Space; guilting people for not buying this game series enough for it to go on.
same happened with Nintendo and Chibi-Robo. That was of course a small GameCube game, which they then made a sequel on the DS, but made it a very limited release (only certain retailers if memory serves me right). Then they made a 3DS 2D platformer game, which was nothing like the GameCube game.
Then Nintendo started guilting the fans like "oh if people don't buy this game, this is the last Chibi Robo game!", so people who didn't want this style of game.. first didn't buy it, because they don't want to support this style of game, but then bought it anyways to "save Chibi Robo!"
Last we saw Chibi Robo was in Smash Bros. Ultimate as a 'cameo' (tropy, like there are hundreds in that game).
so my point is, Nintendo promotes lazy games and guilts their fanbase in buying things they don't want.
