    Nintendo doesn't feel Mario IP is overexposed, "highly cognizant" of every release

    The Mario franchise is an IP Nintendo is “highly cognizant” of, according to Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime, and as long as each release offers fans something new, there’s no reason to fear an overly saturated Mario market.

    Speaking with GI International, Fils-Aime said Nintendo hold the Mario IP "very dearly.”

    “Our developers, starting with Mr. Miyamoto and going through the entire EAD development organization, they understand the power of our franchises, and they understand that the only reason these franchises have the power that they do is that they have to make sure that each subsequent edition is unique, different and offers something new,” he said.

    “They know that if they don’t do that, we’ll kill the golden goose that lays the golden egg. So it’s something they are highly cognizant of, and even the executives on the business side, we hold that IP very dearly to make sure that every edition in the series is foundationally sound.”

    Fils-Aime’s comments echo those made by Nintendo president Satoru Iwata during gamescom when he said: “We only create a New Super Mario Bros. title one per platform.

    “I think we’ll probably go ahead and continue at that pace. That being said, that’s probably Miyamoto’s choice, so I can’t give you a 100% guarantee that that’s the pace we’ll continue at.”

    New Super Marios Bros. U will launch alongside Wii U in November.

    They may make one New Super Mario Game per gen but they release a $#@! load of spinoffs and cameos. If people are into him still, that's all good. I'm personally bored as hell of him. Nintendo need to grow some balls and try to create something new. Heritage shouldn't be forgotten of course, but ease off the $#@!ing spin offs!

    100% agree with this. As long as it sells buttloads, how is it over exposed?


    Next Gen top picks:
    PS4: Infamous SS, DriveClub
    One: Project spark, Forza 5
    Multi: Watchdogs, The crew, FFXV, KHIII

    I love Mario games, but I never buy any spin offs.
    They should still work on new projects, but that doesn't mean they cannot keep an old classic IP that is a sure money maker.

    the Mario Spins have surprising been fun games. Mario kart has been an important IP for nintendo.

    As long as they are fun games $#@! it keep them coming especially if they are selling well and moving hardware...

    I think Guitar Hero is a perfect example of irresponsible handling of an IP and oversaturing the market.

    I never said that Mario was like that. I've always enjoyed playing Mario games (mostly, sans Sonic\Mario @ olympics).

    Guitar hero was the same game over and over the first game bought a new element of game play.

    Mario Series has different IP's within the main series. Which is obvious information but Like Reggie said Nintendo is smart with their Mario IP's this Year 2012 they have released a lot of Mario Games:

    Mario Kart 7 (3ds)

    Super Mario 3d land (3ds)

    Mario Party 9 (Wii)

    NSMB2 (3ds)

    Mario Tennis Open (3ds)

    Still we are gonna see 2 More titles this year from The Mario IP

    Paper Mario (3ds)

    NSMBU (Wii U)

    7 mario titles this year all different type of games with the exception of the NSMB series. Most Mario games were on the 3ds which is what 3ds owners were asking more first party games and mario games.

    Every Nintendo console since the N64 has its typical mario ip line up one 3d platform game, Mario Kart game, RPG mario game, mario Tennis game, and Mario Party games also GC and Wii got Mario Striker games as well I'm sure we'll see one on Wii U. Looks like NSMB series will be another IP we'll be seeing as part of this mix going forward.

    I don't consider sonic and Mario part of those Mario titles just like smash brother series isn't part of those previous titles as well.

    Point is I don't see how nintendo would over saturate the market with different types of mario games while Guitar hero was the same game always 2 times a year.

    I wonder if any other company could get away with releasing 7 titles for an IP, imagine:

    LittleBigPlanet Karting
    LittleBigPlanet 3D Adventure
    Sackboy Party
    LittleBigPlanet 3
    Sackboy Soccer
    Paper Sackboy
    LittleBigPlanet Vita



    If people lap it up, more power to Nintendo, but they shouldn't go on about how they aren't over exposing Mario and how they only release a proper Mario game a generation when they stick him in half a dozen other games imho.

    Don't we have 6 more games announced down the pipeline, plus 12 more on the drawing board, and 17 more still in the concept stages, as we speak?

    Sorry I'm pretty sure he's beyond sunburn to say the least.

    It's true, there's already alot of people that says Sony is already going to far with God of War, Killzone, Uncharted,LBP, ect. saying Sony is out of ideas lol

    Wikipedia lists 10 games for God of War. It's practically Sony's Mario.

    Yeah, but it's obviously a big franchise for Sony and they started it back in 2005. I actually thought they were going to give it a rest after God of War III.

    Oh it is for sure, but the point I was making was to say that you're not over exposing a character that stars in 7 titles in one year doesn't make much sense to me. Only Nintendo can get away with this. Sony would catch all kinds of grief if they released a GoW game and 6 spins offs in a year.

    I don't really think its fair to count collections as new games. Collection, Origins, and Saga shouldn't be counted as there own (1,2,betrayal,Chains of olympus,3,Ghost of Sparta, Ascension)
