Yuji Naka almost made a Mario game
« on: March 23, 2019, 04:02:35 PM »
Who is Yuji Naka? He has a hand in making the original Sonic games so great, he made a proposal to  Nintendo to make a Mario game however it was shot down

I do wonder what kind of game he was planning and there is a chance if the game might be picked up after all.

The article is right in making us think how much Nintendo has changed since. Thank heavens they're willing to open up their IP to more developers now, or we'd never see games like Mario + Rabbids or that Zelda indie game (Cadence of Hyrule?) see the light of day.

There's that comic pitch that was shot down but I figure if that if it was pitched today, Nintendo would probably be on board. I mean, as long as it's not Archie, I'd be hyped.

Well, I can't entirely say I blame them for being reluctant to lend out their IPs since before recently just about every time they did it wound up being completely terrible.

Thank you for taking the time to read this sig. This sig loves you.
