    Nintendo thinking about reviving older franchises

    Excerpt from a larger interview here:

    Multiplayer: So, by the end of this year, almost all of the major Nintendo franchises will have some kind of representation on the Wii U. Almost. Can we hope that in the coming months after that we'll see all of them?

    Fils-Aime: You know, I think we have to be really clear on the time period that we are talking about, and we need to be really clear on the specific franchises that we are talking about. I do think though, that it's helpful to look at what we've done with Wii, and what we've done to date with Nintendo 3DS. With Wii, there was just about every Nintendo franchise brought to bear on that platform, including "Metroid," in a number of different incarnations. When you look at Nintendo 3DS, we've been able to bring back beloved Nintendo franchises like "Kid Icarus" and "Luigi's Mansion."

    Nintendo is a very fortunate place, we have over 30 different franchises, and we look constantly for opportunities to bring those franchises to bear on our most current systems. I'm not making any promises, and I'm not making any commitments, but certainly we are thinking about, for Wii U and for 3DS, what are those franchises? Maybe those franchises that have been dormant for a few years, that we can loving bring to those platforms to drive our business forward.
    The first thing that came to mind is F-Zero, which would be pretty cool for the Wii U or 3DS. The series has been dormant for nearly a decade.

    F-Zero is a huge possibility, what else does Nintendo have? I'm hoping it doesn't involve Nitendogs for Wii U.

    Star Fox, maybe. The last title (not counting Star Fox 64 3D) was released in '06. Hideki Kamiya even expressed interest in the series.

    Is Advance Wars old school enough? I hope so.

    We Nintendo fans would love old franchises to come back, but of course, people will complain they're "milking" franchises when really they are just giving their fans exactly what they want. I want Luigi's Mansion on the Wii U!

    I've only ever played the GBA F-Zero but I would love a new version. I'm not sure if considered 'old' but from how successful Fire Emblem was, I'm keen for a new Advance Wars too

    Black Hole Rising was the last one I've played. But I liked Fire Emblem: Awakening so it'd be cool if they used the same engine for a new Advance Wars.

    How about competing with Sony and MS? That'd be neat. <.<

    You forgot Zelda. :P I think maybe they mean older in general... like games they used to make... not necessarily iconic characters.

    It just refers to games we haven't seen in a while. Mario, Zelda and Metroid are more well-known, compared to F-Zero or Star Fox.

    I admit, F-Zero would be awesome, i played the GC title to death and did the classic "Oh $#@! i cant even beat my own ghost now what have i done!?".

    But thats not enough to make me even consider buying a Wii U, ill keep to Wipeout on my Vita
    There once was a man named Sidney, he used to collect shells on the beach. everything was going well for him. untill he stopped and took a look, he had a glance and a stare and realised he what he was reading.
    It was a forum signature full of nonsense

    Bring back Earthbound and I'm on board with Wii U. Make a billion Mario's and I'm not...why do I think this means "Mario Tenis" is back?
