Xenoblade isn't really a "main" franchise since the xeno series is not Nintendo exclusive.

Also it depends on what you mean by "main", because if you mean "most well known and are typically the face of Nintendo" franchises then your list would be halved.

Xenoblade isn't connected to previous Xeno games; it's an entirely new start. Xenoblade IS a Nintendo franchise you fluck.
>>
>>254252896
Not a mian franchise, faggot
>>
>>254252610
Xeno may not be, but Xenoblade is. It has two games under its belt, and Nintendo owns the rights to both.
>>
>>254253320
Don't be an ass, it's very much a main Nintendo franchise.
>>
>>254253446
If two games counts as a "main" franchise then that list would be a hundred times longer.
>>
Trauma Center
Golden Sun
Brain Age
Excitebike
Steel Diver
Advanced Wars
Jump Superstars (at least up to Ultimate anyway)

>>254253737
it isn't, the game isn't mainly popular or has countributed a lot, it hasn't sold a million either

>>254253993
No, but it's a very relevant, popular Nintendo franchise right now amongst core Nintendo gamers. Why do you have such a big problem with the Xenoblade series?

>>254254219
You don't stray too far do you.
>>
>>254254991
it might be relevant, but not popular to be considered a mian nintendo franchise

Law route in literally every SMT game. Deal w/it edgy chaosfags.

>rhythm heaven
Basically a successor to the Wario Ware games. Focusing mostly on keeping up with the rhythm.
>earthbound
Arguably one of the best games for the SNES and a massive cult classic
>Kid Icarus
One of the best reboots of a series ever
>Fire Emblem
You're kidding right
>Xenoblade
One of the best RPGs of the last gen.
>>
>>254252276
A lot of those are one-off games, not exactly franchises, and definitely not main franchises.

>>254255992
You mean the long, rich legacy of "Who?" and "Oh, that guy who cried a lot in that crappy cartoon?"
>>
My main gripe with Nintendo is that they have a fuckton of excellent IPs that they never do anything with. I get that Mario. Zelda, Pokemon and Kirby bring in the dosh and are the flagships. But Kid Icarus has proved that they can do a lot of good with their other IPs as well.

.

(Note: Picture to the left includes a list of all Nintendo IP's that I know about. Do know that the list is fairly old and may neglect a few of the more resent IP's.)

>>254251439
You forgot Splatoon. Doesn't even have a game yet and it's already far too successful for its own good.
>>
>>254256665
Oops already messed up.

I forgot to include Mario Party at 32 Million.

Also the sales for Mario Kart may be off.
>>
>>254256665
I wonder. Do we as consumers create the cycle of "rehashing" that people claim that Nintendo is in? I mean look at the numbers for Mario compared to the likes of Metroid. Is it any wonder why Nintendo tends to play it safe?

I've always preferred Nintendo's lesser known series.
>>
>>254256665
Technically Mario & Sonic is more of a Sega franchise than it is a Nintendo franchise. Sega develops it and writes Nintendo a healthy check to use the characters.
