What are your hopes for the NX?
Please keep the shitposting and falseflagging to a minimum.
Scroll wheels for shoulder buttons
good games
Home console - decent games unlike the Wii U
Handheld - I want a screen resolution from this decade.
but why
For easier/quicker menu navigation and camera zoom
GOTY editions of Wii U games so I don't have to buy one.
Wii U backwards compatability, that way my Wii can be Gcn/Wii, and the NX can be WiiU/NX.
I don't mind amiibos that much but they should change how they unlock stuff. Instead of outright unlocking content you can't get any other way, either do it like SMM where you can unlock everything without them, or make standalone DLC for like 5$ or you can buy the amiibo for 13$ and unlock the same DLC. So if you don't want the figure you don't need to buy it.

Hoping it's not gonna be a shitty cashgrab from Nintendo like the WiiU
I hope the handheld and console is combined together. I'm done buying both.
Aww come on, does Retro have to make another Metroid.

This, is fact I only want Tropical freeze, #FE and Pokken.
My hope is that it will actually have system sellers. Wii U is the first Nintendo console that I have no interest in

A powerful no-bullshit console. No gimmicks, just powerful hardware. Make it backwards compatible with the Wii U and slash prices on Wii U games (players choice releases) as an extra incentive to buy an NX. That way they can say "hey, I know you didn't want a Wii U, but if you buy the NX then you get ALL these Wii U games too!"

And it should be fucking powerful. Not just on par with PS4/Xbone. It needs to be the dreamcast to the competition's N64/PS1. Otherwise it's just falling into the same rut as the Wii U did.

As for games, pumping out first party stuff only goes so far. Nintendo needs to actually make a serious effort to get 3rd parties on board. They have always been terrible at this, and it needs to fucking change.

I can see them trying to get more Japanese 3rd party, but Nintendo is done with western 3rd party, they want nothing to do with each other.
Good hardware, no gimmicks like 3D and more games on launch.
consider: nintendo have never had the level of online infrastructe that Sony and Microsoft have developed oer the years, even if it is a conventional console developed to beat the ps4 it will suffer major online connectivity issues simply by virtue f they just dont have the expertise to develop and maintan something like that out of nowhere
Super Mario Galaxy 3
Nintendo hasn't had a good lineup of games on launch since the SNES.
u can see it actually here , testinghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZPeIXV85d0c
But that is exactly the attitude that is the issue.

You CANNOT have a successful console without 3rd party support. The only exception was the Wii, and that was because it came at just the right time before smartphones and facebook games to get all the casual non-gamers. But that's over and done with.

If they want to pursue actual gamers, they need 3rd parties. Every generation, ninty says "okay, we promise to try this time!" and they never really do. Their idea of catering to 3rd parties just means not actively antagonizing them like they did during the NES/SNES/N64 days. But that's not good enough. They need to butter up th 3rd parties and convince them. They can't just say "here's the NX, take it or leave it". They need to be more active salesmen when it comes to getting 3rd parties on-board.
Sizable and Future Proof amounts of Hardware Power.
A Smash and/or Mario Kart Day One. A high profile JRPG released in the launch window.
A controller with No Gimmicks. Well okay, add your Scroll Wheel Shoulder Buttons, or an Iphone sized screen to the controller for on-the-go play. Just don't force me to play Bop-It Extreme with this new controller.
A peripheral that lets you download every game ever released for any Nintendo system as long as you have physical copy.
More mario and zelda games! Over 200 games featuring these characters just isn't enough!
>people talking about shoulder scroll wheel buttons and screen controllers

You know those are just patents right? Half the shit Nintendo patents never even makes it out of development.
Fucking imagine if Nintendo opened their games to be modifiable. Mainly in talking older games, but anything really. Custom MK64 tracks, Goldeneye 007 levels, Pikmin maps. Imagine how strong the development community would be.
Gamecube launch lineup was top-tier though
>rogue squadron 2
>luigi's mansion
>smash bros melee (released a week or two after launch, sue me)
>super monkey ball

And while the N64's launch only had like 2 games, one of those games was fucking SM64, so it was still a decent launch for that reason alone.

Really the problem is that no consoles since 6th gen have had good launch lineups. And it's a shame. You'd think having excellent games at launch would be the #1 goal if you want people buying your system.
I want it to be able to ignore the portable functionality altogether, I want it to keep the tablet controller, and I want it to be powerful enough to have good graphics and be able to support 4 tablets at the same time, so the asymmetrical bullshit from the U is fixed. And of course, a strong enough launch lineup.

I think a new launch Mario is a given, or at least I hope it is, considering the last one was 3 years ago.
A new Metroid would be nice to cater to people on the fence too.
Good hardware.
No stupid gimmicks.
An actual innovatice concept. The rumor about releasing new hardware upgrades while keeping the architecture/compatibility was great.
Third Party support.
Waiting 4 years into the console's lifespan for a Zelda game
>rogue squadron 2
I literally bought the cube just for that one game, and holy shit was it a good purchase. It still is the best Star Wars game ever.
Most people play those on other systems because they can't play them on nintendo's.

The paradigm since 7th gen has been "you buy a system for all your multiplats and a separate one for nintendo games". Now imagine if there was a console that got all those multiplats AND nintendo first party titles. It'd be a no-brainer.

>but they already have a PS4 for multiplats
Not everyone has moved on to 8th gen consoles, first of all. And secondly, this is why the NX needs to be more powerful. It can't just be on-par. It needs to blow the PS4. I'm talking 60fps 1080p standard on top of everything else. It needs to be powerful so that it can have the definitive versions of console multiplats.

Just expecting everyone to only buy the NX as a "secondary console strictly for ninty games" is a death sentence. This is exactly the issue the Wii U had. It'd be the same mistake all over again.

Nintendo doesn't learn from their mistakes. They keep making the same ones generation after generation, even when they themselves admit to having these weak points.

And this sadly won't change with the NX. It's a shame too, but I just don't see how they're going to make it work. They'd need to make a super-powerful console and get all the major third party releases. And even then, I don't think many people (or developers) would embrace it, because faith in nintendo is low. They released the WiiU, which was a failure. Now it's dead in the water and they're dropping it like a rock... and they expect people to go out and buy another nintendo console after that? People already have the fear that it will be another flop.

It's like an (admittedly much less severe) case of what happened with sega during the mid 90s, releasing consoles/add-ons that were failures and then just expecting consumers to buy the next one anyway.
Kimishima saying that the NX will be a "New experience and not a retread of Wii or Wii U" both really excites me and scares the shit out of me.

Yes, cause that helped the Vita oh so much. Why do you even care about that? The 3DS games look great when you're playing them on the console.
It's a real shame. The 3DS could've had a really nice higher-res screen had they just gone for that instead of pursuing the 3D bullshit that's a complete gimmick and nobody uses.

It's criminal that the thing barely has a resolution much higher than the DS, which itself is only barely much higher than the GBA, etc.

They don't.
did mario fuck your mom and kill your dad or something
I want a Mario golf at 1080p 60fps at launch.
Nintendoodoo defense force has arrived.
I only use the 3D.
Let's remove Mario from the game just for example. What we are left with are very different games that are only linked by characters and settings.
So, yes. I hope we do get some more Mario games because they are the most innovative and at some points inventive games ever created.

Remove mario from the game and you wouldn't play them.
Sega CD released a little earlier than that, but you're right.

Like I said, the sega analogy is a much more extreme version of the same thing. BUT the general principle still applies. The Wii U has been an unfortunate failure and they're dropping it prematurely. There is inherently lower confidence in nintendo's next endeavor for this very reason. It's certainly an uphill battle.

But things can turn around. The Dreamcast, despite popular belief, was pretty damn successful during its short time pre-PS2. It only failed because it wasn't able to be successful enough to counter all the other failures that Sega had before then. Point being that despite the Saturn's failure (in the west), the DC was still able to be popular with consumers. But Sega did EVERYTHING right with the dreamcast. So I'm not saying Nintendo can't turn things around, but they'll likewise have to put out the perfect console.
I hope it flops and that makes Capcom put MH on PS4 or PC
>Yes, cause that helped the Vita oh so much.
The difference here is we're expecting the vare minimum for 2016. When mid-range smartphones are sporting 1440p screens is it too much to ask for NX to have a 720p screen at the least?
>Plays Super Bros. on NES
>Start up the game
>Just shows the first screen of 1-1
>Can't even do anything
>Timer runs out
>Nothing happens
Do you also sit perfectly still with your 3DS mounted to a solid platform so that the 3D effect never fucks up?
Hopefully they'll implement some kind of reward system for players with a Wii U to ease the transition. Something like giving them money to buy things from the VC right away would be nice.

Yes, cause smartphones use their power at all.
Nintendo still hasnt solved their main problem that they have with HD development and wii u development(although they had time to do this since 2005) and by going to even more powerful hardware the amount of people needed to develop a game within a 3-4 development cycle doubles once again.
In the end they will only have 1/4 of the people needed to make a gc/ wii tier first party line up, so a good first party support is impossible unless they upsize their development teams by 4times.
The N3DS has an auto adjust feature. And, no, I'm not some kind of retard, I actually didn't buy a 3DS until that was out.
>But they do?
Your standards for looking great must be low as fuck. It is made more apparent when you're playing games on one of the XL units, and things look even worse due to the large low rea screen.

God damn, I'm tired of you drones defending such dumb design choices.
The fact of the matter is that 90% of normies don't even know that the wii u exists. And based on that fact alone makes me feel like ANOTHER nintendo console is just pissing into the wind.
No hopes whatsoever.
You may be right about that. I don't know, I think the graphic power creep is actually killing videogames. You don't need every game to look hyper realistic, and I do honestly think the 3DS games look good. At least nice enough. The retro graphics movement of late is not only about nostalgia.
>Nintendo still hasnt solved their main problem that they have with HD development
Nigga, no one has solved that problem even with staffs going over 1k. Most of these bigger studios need 2-3 three cycling to meet their quotas. Even then, there are still been an absurd amount of broken relays and delays.
That's a good point. They need to think of some way to sell it to Wii U owners.

I don't personally own a Wii U. I've played it and the games are fantastic, but I never bought one myself. But I can tell you, if I were one of the people who bought one, and then I find out that nintendo is dropping and telling me to buy their next system instead, I'd be fucking pissed.

I'm just not sure how to do it. Maybe free VC games. Maybe free launch games (although I fucking hate "owning" non-physical games). Maybe some sort of voucher where people who bought a Wii U get a discount on the NX, who knows.

They also need Wii U backwards compatible, so that all the millions of gamers out there who didn't buy a Wii U but would be interested in playing Wii U games would have an incentive to picking up the NX, just as many people who didn't own a gamecube picked up a wii because it could also play GC games.
As long as they don't call it something stupid, they have something catchy to show off and they actually advertise it, it'll be fine. It'd actually be a good time to try to up their game and make their console look less childish, especially if they end up calling it the Nintendo Next, with a cool logo and everything. A Metroid game would definitely help them to achieve that look.
Holy fuck, THIS.
This is a complete tangent, but there should be a fucking peripheral with cartridge slots and controller ports for NES/SNES/N64 so that you can play corresponding these on your NX without having to re-buy games you already own on VC
>dropping it prematurely
It falls right into their cycle. Why are you guys such spin artists?
They need 2-3 teams to get 1 game per year and that on several platforms.
They solved the issue as good as possible. Meanwhile nintendo has development cycles that last longer than 5 years and the result is still unfinished.

Unless they go out and hire 10k more devs, it will just have the same nogames proble as the wii u has but this time with even more expensive games.

Resolution is not the graphics of a game
That's wrong though. 5 year cycle would mean 2017.

And you're also forgetting that Wii U's effective life cycle was even shorter because it didn't have any games for the longest time after launch and 2016 might as well not even exist for the Wii U
Wii U came out in 2012, if the rumored release of NX is 2016 then it'll have had a life of 4 years. The average Nintendo console lasts 5-6 years.
>these people dreaming about backwards compatibility right off the bat

Ha no. Do you guys know how business works?
>Wii U backwards compatible
I don't think that's gonna be plausible, if they end up going with the console/handheld hybrid thing, then it will use some sort of cards instead of disks. You can bet your ass they'll port most of the U games to that, though, just like what they did with lots of GCN games for the Wii, even though that thing was retrocompatible.
My only hope is that Nintendo doesn't go the way of Sega.

In order for that to happen:
>Hardware that is at least on par with XBO/PS4
>Get the same multiplats that keep the competition afloat (FIFA, Madden, CoD, etc.)
>Put some actual money into marketing like with Splatoon
>Have Zelda U as a launch title

That alone would keep the NX from crashing and burning.
Wii U B/C would be essential. It would effectively increase the launch lineup of the NX for the 95% of gamers who didn't own a Wii U.

The NX isn't even coming out this year and nothing but rumors indicate that. It doesn't even match Nintendo's method of releasing shit.
>what are your hopes for the nx
That it fails worse than the Wii U and nintendo gives up and I finally get pokemon games for my phone without an emulator

fucking nintendo
To be fair, their last 2 consoles and all their handhelds were retrocompatible. Of course people are gonna expect that to continue.
I'm saying this in terms of what they SHOULD do. I think the console/handheld hybrid gimmick is a terrible idea and I'd put that under the category of "should not do". So all my recommendations preclude that not being a reality.
They won't give a fuck about launch line up. They want you ponying up the $60 burgers for new games. They will release 1 or 2 games right at launch and then flood it with mario cut and paste #300000. Then a year later as its dying, they'll announce bc.
What indicates it coming out in 2017 or later? all circumstantial evidence points to 2016.
Well, this is a thread about hopes for the NX, after all. We're saying what they need to do to stand a chance.

If this was a thread about what they're actually going to do, then I would just say it's going to be barely on-par with PS4/Xbone, have a new useless gimmick, have shitty 3rd party support, a terrible launch lineup, and more NSMB rehashes.
>They need 2-3 teams to get 1 game per year and that on several platforms.
One team handles one game and usually spends 3-5 years developing it. If extra manpower is needed for porting and shit, they either pull from other branches or contract lesser studios to assist. There's no real difference between what they and Nintendo are doing except some publisher have concrete deadlines and things will be cut to meet it.

I can't take you serious when you say stuff like that.
>NX isnt even coming out this year
There so many things indicating this that we can say with a 90% chance of truth that it will come 2016, starting from a contract with sharp in 2014 that states mass production for free form displays in mid 2016 and iwata saying in 2014 that their new platform would be ready in 2 years(2016) to the fact that there are close to no wii u games in 2016 and not a single one for 2017.
>console/handheld hybrid gimmick is a terrible idea
It's actually a great idea, if they do it well. Think about it, Nintendo handhelds are the main product for Nintendo. The hybrid thing allows them to have a new handheld out at the same time they please their console fans. Also, they can sell the handheld part as a separate thing, and what's more, why do people buy Nintendo consoles? To play Nintendo and associates' games. The console/handheld thing allows them to unite all their development teams, which means more games will come out for the thing.
Maybe not unfinished but extremly barebones
>The console/handheld thing allows them to unite all their development teams, which means more games will come out for the thing.

That's the way I see it, but it'll probably take a hit graphically, which a lot of people will complain about, I don't care though, gameplay > graphics.

Still only applies to Mario Tennis.
-An actual Paper Mario game
-A proper console Kirby
-Smash with a new director and no anime shit
-Mario Kart 8 but more content and better roster
-proper 3D mario
-Proper 3D metroid
-An F-Zero game
-an inventive new IP
Splatoon released with little content, but to be fair they added more shit every month since release.

A new controller

Fuck the Wii U pad, it's cool as an accessory, not as the main thing. If there's something Sony and Microsoft have done right it's the controllers.

This thing is GOAT, they should use it for everything

Also, don't call it Wii Pii or something like that, I know the Wii was the most successful Nintendo console, but keeping the name will just confuse people, that's why you use numbers instead of words if you wanna continue the legacy of the console. Wii 2 would have been much more marketable than Wii U.
Not necessarily. I imagine the games will work like PC games, running at low settings for the handheld and at the highest ones for the console mode.
It would just result in console games being dumbed down so they can run on the handheld.
Sm4sh was a prime example for this.

There is just too big of a difference in quality between home and handheld games that in the end the home console will get dumbed down stuff and everybody will just buy the handheld version.
They just need to make it slimmer.


Sm4sh is actually a great example of how may it work. It looks meh in the 3DS and it looks great in the U. I don't get the point you're trying to make with the dumbed down stuff, what's dumbed down?
He's probably salty about IC being cut because of the 3DS.
The Ice Climbers? Did they actually said that? Doesn't Rosalina work in pretty much the same way with the star? In any case, the difference between the U and the 3DS is a lot bigger than the one 2 systems designed to work in tandem will have, I guess.

They keep calling it Smash for WiiU/3DS.
I feel like the game will be ported to NX and promptly called smash for NX.

These are the final characters for smash WiiU/3DS they said at the end of the presentation.
That'd instakill the online, so I doubt they'll do it. You'll have to wait a couple of years or so for 5mash.
>It looks
Yeah and it sucks gameplay wise because handheld was a bottleneck(ice climbers and so on).
And the look comes only from being developed completely different and just using the same physics at the end, so they made 2 different games with 2 different dev teams and then made the gameplay equal, something that would be done when they truly crossdevelop the games.

When developing a game for 2 platfoems the weakest one will always be a bottleneck and if something canne done on one version(ice climbers) but not on the one that is the bottleneck it simply wont work.

Yeah this might work out for some games, 2d platformers for example, but thevast majority of the library would take a hit in what can be done or not(just imagine a pikmin game having to run on a handheld with a weak cpu and 30 pikmins max and a console that can easily handle 100 pikmins, then both will have 30 max).
I hope it can play Wii U games turns out better than the Gamecube did.
Well, as I said, that shouldn't be a problem with the NX, since it should be designed to be used like that. Also, the bulk of the CPU should be in the handheld, so the console mode should only make the games prettier.

My main problems with Wii U were
>system all around feels dated
Fix those and your good

Keep it cheap, like $300 at BEST, not too weak, find a balance like PS2 did

Let's be real, Nintendo is never going to get 3rd Party support
So Nintendo systems will always be better as secondary/complimentary systems so the cheaper the better

Thats actually a wonderful thing nowadays since everything be coming to PC rendering consoles kinda pointless

a literal Nintendo machine is aight, it seems to be what they're doing to with the handheld/console combination so it will be like get waves and waves of 1st/2nd party games since practically the yearly releases of Wii U and 3DS would be fused together, which would be amazing

Also I actually encourage gimmicks since it makes the system more specialized since that would make for types of games you can't get anywhere else like with DS and Wii U, I like a system that makes me think
>this game would be cool on this system since it has this feature
Just don't pull a Kinect or Wii U where it sacrifices pricing too much
>$300 at BEST
If it's a console/hybrid, it'll be 400 at least.
>find a balance like PS2 did
PS2 didn't really find a balance if you looked at the other products.
The only thing that can save nintendo would be a < 200$ HD handheld and a console counterpart that shares games. Carry over the eshop from 3DS/Wii U so there won't be nogeams at launch.
Not WiiU

That's it, be the anti-WiiU and it will have success
So you want it to have only shit games? Normally I'd laugh at that, but then again, it worked for the PS4...
It's because of that, PS4 at this point have been selling only at brand name, It has literally 2-3 games decent everything is better on PC, Nintendo needs to step up their game and market their fucking consoles to Casual-gamers wannabes instead of Casual-Soccer moms.
It did, PS2 was up to par with the standards
I'd rather let Nintendo stay as a 3rd force as long as they can survive than they ruining all their IPs and releasing shit games, thanks.
those shit games sadly are the ones who sells more.
They're going to sell a supplementary computing device. I wonder if it'll be powered by Nvidia or AMD


There were noticeable and sometimes big gaps between each of the four consoles. That's not a standard at all. Also, some of the Xbox games would not have ran on the PS2.
