When discussion about Nintendo games comes up, inevitably there’s always someone calling for the re-visiting of old franchises, such as F-Zero or StarTropics. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime says bringing back dormant franchises might be more likely than you think.
“Nintendo is a very fortunate place, we have over 30 different franchises, and we look constantly for opportunities to bring those franchises to bear on our most current systems. I’m not making any promises, and I’m not making any commitments, but certainly we are thinking about, for Wii U and for 3DS, what are those franchises? Maybe those franchises that have been dormant for a few years, that we can lovingly bring to those platforms to drive our business forward.”
For fans of older franchises, this is great news as it confirms that Nintendo is looking positively at all of their IPs and what can work for both the Wii U and the 3DS. What do you think of this news? Which franchises do you want to see re-visited the most? Let us know in the comments.
