    One thing i've been wondering about is whether this flood of classic Nintendo series games will dry up creativity or improve it in the future, and I can see it going either way. So far in the course of a little over a year we've seen these series get a new game for wii. Super Mario Brothers, Mario RPG, Super Smash Brothers, Mario Kart, and Metroid Prime. With these "sure fire hits" already off the table for Nintendo what will they then focus on. From a business standpoint it seems a little foolish to release, mario galaxy, SSBB, and Mario Kart, in a 6 month time frame. I could see this going either way though. Either you'll use up all their ideas early and be screwed, or this will force Nintendo to become more creative and think up great new series to begin. Hopefully option 3 doesn't happen, that being endless sequels being released.

    Nintendo always have a plan and will always have a back-up. but it is a very valif point you have made only time will tell for us.

    LOL at least im good for something lmao, yeah tbh i would still buy the new mario and zelda games even if they had nothing different lol and im sure nintendo see it as that as well, but from what i have heard nintendo are trying to look at new ways to play games insted of picking up a controller and playing hence the Wii.
    Im nintendo all the way tho lol

    I don't think they were foolish....this gets all these standard series Nintendo produces out of the way early to leave time for either a sequel to come out on the Wii ,or a rebirth of an old series. We seem to forget that without Mario,Zelda ,or Metroid doesn't have any good franchises left in their tank when that isn't the fact.

    The fact is Nintendo has plenty of franchises they either haven't on the Wii yet ,or used in years.

    There's
    Star Fox
    Startropics
    Kid Icarus
    Animal Crossing
    Wave Race
    FZero
    1080
    Pikmin
    Earthbound(Mother)
    Punch-Out
    Donkey Kong (platforming game)
    Wario(platforming game) i wouldn't mind seeing a Wario World sequel.

    plus there's plenty of blockbuster possibilities for the WiiWare service
    think of it:

    New Super Mario Bros (either Wii port ,or a Wii exclusive sequel)
    Legend of Zelda Four Swords (imagine playing the other links with people online ,and the possibility of DS connectivity)
    Metroid Prime Hunters 2 ( a Wii exclusive sequel that would be multiplayer online only)
    the next Yoshi's Island game

    So theres plenty of fuel left in the tank

    let us not forget Disaster Day of Crisis ,and possibility maybe because Project HAMMER was canceled doesn't mean it doesn't evolve into something else building upon what was created on PH.

    If you really think about it the whole Mii ,and Wii Music ideas started from a little Gamecube game that never was released called Stage Debut. You were suppose to be able to create characters ,and i believe have them play music.
    Nintendo may cancel some games ,but they never scrap their ideas they just build upon them in another game. Hence Super Mario 128=Super Mario Galaxy

    They still plan to do RPGs with their newly aquired Monolith Studios(Xenogears).

    They also have Golden Sun for an RPG franchise.

    Hopefully they plan on doing a 1st party mutiplayer FPS like a Metroid Prime spinoff or something.

    Obviously Kid Icarus and Animal Crossing are gonna happen. A Zelda sequel is likely. F-Zero is certain.

    Nintendo also seems to be swinging some great 3rd party exlusives like Monster Hunter and Fatal Frame.

    I agree. Also just wanted to put this out there: Fatal frames is 2nd party. Also, I believe that nintendo is releasing ssbb and so close to each other because they want more people online.

    Nintendo wasn't foolish at all, not in the least.

    Theres still so much they can do, StarFox, Pikmin, Donkey Kong etc. Theres the potential of a Red Steel 2, Animal Crossing is coming at some point W/Voice Chat I am sure, Disaster Day Of Crisis and Kid Icarus and or a new Zelda. Wii Music also has the potential of being a good game, similar to Wii Fit.

    Plus not everyone will buy Mario Kart right after, and some haven't yet bought Brawl. They can still wait until the holidays to buy one of those, much like they waited a bit to buy Galaxy.

    Clearly Nintendo has things shaping up nicely, and is planning on making 2008 a good year for Wii owners, much better than previous years for sure.

    Yes i agree with cantgetawii nintendo is really shaping this year up for us and with the Wii's sales skyrocketing i would expect to see and hear lot more about some old franchises being brought back and new ones brought forward to us.

    They are also trying to make up for third parties. If there's real good third party support you can expect Nintendo not to release things so closely for causing competition, but there isn't now so they must make up for it. Nintendo still has a lot under their sleeves, even if they don't they're sewing new sleeves full of stuff (i.e. WiiFit idea, they might come up with something else). I think all their releases so far are good business choice.

    I think the big N know what they are doing but my real question is why mario kart so close to brawl i mean i wont be done with brawl (as in beat 100% not done playing) for another few months and it would have held me over till mid summer or early fall. But with games like Animal Crossing in the works i know they will keep churning out good games to keep me playing.

    Actually it's better if they used up all there game franchises. Then we get new stuff! It also doesn't take as long to make these games due to the new tools you can use.
