Hell has officially frozen over.

Well, nothing's official yet. I'm still giving Nintendo a chance to chicken out.

I reallllllly hope they don't screw this up. I'd hate to have another stellar company go the way of microtransactions and nickle and diming us.

But, Nintendo's always been a good dev, so I've got confidence. For now.

So it begins...

I wonder what route they'll take with this. My hope is that they'll sell complete games at a low cost, rather than going with the "freemium" option. Sequels to some older puzzle games like Dr. Mario or Tetris Attack would be nice to see.

My guess is they won't make anything new. We'll probably see Gameboy Games, and NES, and SNES games. This is probably part of a larger strategy to make younger people into fans of Nintendo, or make older people remember the glory days to drive up their overall sales.

I believe the main factor in their success will be in the price. They should make games in the $1.99 to $5.99 range. That would be a fair deal. But it seems like right now they charge a lot more than that. If you want Earthbound for example it's $9.99. A bit steep considering what you can get in the market place. There are lots of better games that are cheaper. Minecraft for example is cheaper than that.

I can see where this is going. How long until Google starts blacklisting emulators for Nintendo systems?

Oh fuck. I hope they don't turn into a full microtransaction company. EA's already pretty much gone that route and as if they weren't bad enough, they murdered Dungeon Keeper with a rusty fork.

New lines of games. Hurm. That means I'll never get a proper sequel to Paper Mario, thousand year door. Boo.

Whatever we get will have to run in a horrendously varied set of hardwares, meaning "most common denominator" will run the field.

"Yoshi's egg plantation" - Like farmville, but with shoe wearing dinosaurs.
"Mario/Wario dance off" - Join the gang as they battle head to head in a rhythm game.
"Metaknight's battle school" - Try to turn hilariously inept creatures into warriors, dungeon keeper style.
"Fire Emblem: ultimate bakeshop" - Development got turned over to Zynga using Nintendo IP. No one knows how to play it, but it'll make a ton of lucre on facebook.
