Nintendo Open to More HD Remakes if Made by Development Partner

Legend of Zelda Wind Waker HD screen

Nintendo is focusing on developing new titles, but it wouldn't say no to others making HD remakes of old Nintendo games.

HD remake this, HD remake that. HD remasters are all over the place. Nintendo's own Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker HD launched last month. Speaking as a part of a roundtable interview, Shigeru Miyamoto said Nintendo is working on new titles; however, were someone outside Nintendo to work with the company to develop HD remakes, Nintendo would be interested.

Miyamoto did not mention the names of any development partners for future HD remakes. He added HD remakes should make use of Wii U technology rather than only updating the visuals for the Wii U.

"The main thing that's always going to be on our minds is what new elements of gameplay can we use with the Gamepad as applied to some of these older games," he said. "We want to find some way to bring a refreshing experience to this rather than simply update the visuals and leave it at that."

In an earlier Iwata Asks, Takuhiro Dohta of the Technology Development Department at Nintendo said only a few in-house designers at Nintendo worked on Wind Waker HD. "Things that could be done with sheer manpower" were handed off to developers outside of Nintendo.

Nintendo has several series that have gone on for many years, giving the company and development partners much to work from - so long as Nintendo feels the remake can add something new to the original.

So they're not going to be internally developing the remakes of their older games?

So why the change now, since thats all they've done for the last 20 years?

To beat a dead horse, I'd love to see an updated Majoras Mask come out of this, preferably for the Wii U and not the 3DS like OOT did. Mainly because I'm looking for another excuse to buy a Wii U other than Skyward Sword and Luigi U

*sigh* There's a difference between "remake" (HD re-releases with updated textures and tweaked gameplay elements) and "port" (keeping the game intact, but playable in a different platform), also, the most recent remakes (not simple ports) that comes to mind are Ocarina of Time and Star Fox 64, both for the 3DS, there's not yet a single remake or even port of that style on the Wii U, except Wind Waker.

OT: Hmmm... isn't the Virtual Console enough for these things?, I'd rather prefer a low price port than a full fledged remake... except if it's F-Zero GX. PLEASE Ninty, remake that in HD D:

No, I was referring to remakes like every super Mario game since 64, ever Zelda game since Ocarina of Time, every Mario Kart since 64, every Kirby game period, and every Pokemon game period.

Would love a HD remake of that.

I'd also love a WiiU remake of the Metroid Prime Trilogy. I know we just got a re-release with the Wii, but it wasn't Wii Motion+ compatible. All the pre-Motion+ games seem so archaic to me now.

I welcome the idea, as long as they tone down the bloom a bit.
Seriously, Wind Waker HD had way too much bloom in it and that's the only thing I disliked about the game.

And for those who say "they didn't use too much bloom", look at the Tower of the Gods Appears cutscene and tell me that again.
Bloom seems to be something that Nintendo needs to work on because it gets pretty bad at certain points, especially since you are out on the open seas so much in Wind Waker.

Right... because every sequel ever made is a remake of the first game.

Fallout 2 is a sequel "remake" of Fallout 1.

Doom 2 is a sequel "remake" of Doom 1.

Halo 2 is a is a sequel "remake" of Halo 1.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2/3/Black Ops/2/Ghosts is a sequel "remake" of Call of Duty 4.

No, just the ones that do it the way Nintendo does, with the same exact characters, in the same exact story, playing out with the same structure, over and over and over and over and over.

Jumwa:
All the pre-Motion+ games seem so archaic to me now.

I respect that and to some extent, I agree, BUT, Prime Trilogy was highly dependent on the IR pointer, wich IMO, is much better than the shoddy default motion controls of the Wiimote (granted, I'm talking about Prime 1/2, but if you're refering to Prime 3, then I totally agree, it desperately needs a Motion Plus upgrade).

Toadfish1:
No, just the ones that do it the way Nintendo does, with the same exact characters, in the same exact story, playing out with the same structure, over and over and over and over and over.

Because Square-Enix hasn't milked Final Fantasy VII/XIII enough by now, or Activision recycling "russians wants to take over the world with their arabic pawns" every year and Electronic Arts mimicking them, or every Halo killing grunts/brutes/elites/flood, or any BioWare game that follows the exact same template in their stories, or every Gears of War with testosterone filled guns with chainsaws, or Capcom with every single Street Fighter game.

Because no one can enjoy something because it's been done to death by somebody else or it's just repeating ideas over and over.

Couldn't agree more (assuming your point is that there's been basically no innovation in Nintendo's games for close to 20 years now). I'm not even slightly suprised that they want to do more remakes of old games (saves them even pretending it's actually a new game), I'm only suprised that they would let other developers take a slice of the profits.

Are you saying the stagnation in CoD and the other franchises you mentioned is good? Because as far as I can tell it's a running joke at best and at worst potentially capable of destroying the gaming industry again. The Escapist is a place where people are particularly fed up with this and constanty griping about it. Simply pointing out that other franchises have been repeatedly recycled and overused as well doesn't change the fact that Nintendo have done this with more franchises than almost any other publisher/ developer and it certainly doesn't absolve them.

Maybe some people enjoy playing the same game with a new coat of paint every year, in fact the franchises you mentioned would have died out if they didn't, but don't expect every gamer to be satisfied with that, especially not on this website.

So, I have to just pretend to keep scoffing at the CODs and Fifas of the world, because it's the popular thing around here.

Call them remakes if you want, but Nintendo quite frankly brings a lot more new to their sequels than most companies. You just notice repetition more with them because they don't stop everything once it reaches a trilogy, and because they make fewer design mistakes that actually need changed (see: everything in Mass Effect).

P.S. Thanks

You have a talent for misinterpretation. That wasn't my point at all, my point was that you were implying that just reusing old games with minor changes to make them current gen is acceptable. Not everyone feels that way and the CoDs and Fifas of the world certainly aren't very popular on this site. If you like them that's fine, you're free to do so just like I or anyone else is free to dislike them, the same goes for Nintendo games.

Personally I think Nintendo are overrated and are basically incapable of creating new ideas and nostalgia has encouraged a lot of people to forgive them for this and not include them as one of those AAA deveopers who symbolises current stagnation in big budget games.

Were you in a coma when Super Mario Galaxy and Zelda Skyward Sword (for inovative sword controls) came out?
Even if you were in a coma you could inform yourself after waking up so it's no excuse.

Mayeb you don't like those games, not everyone can have good taste in games like me, I get that, but it's not Nintendo's fault, and you have to admit they do inovate.

edit: Sorry double post, I was expecting someone to post before my second post. This is a
Nintendo topic after all, it will quickly be full of Nintendo haters and defenders.

And I actually don't think a remake of Metroid and Mario Sunshine are needed. Those games are still gorgeous and aged very well. I played Sunshine after Galaxy and still held up pretty good.
I thought the same about Windwaker though, and they still did it...

Dude be real here you honestly think that there was no innovation in nintendo games in damn 20 years?

That statement borders on the type of blind hatin that I see in youtube comments.

But ok ima list some examples that i found pretty innovative for theyr time.

Majoras Mask: 3 day system and the very depressive atmosphere make the game very different from ocarina of time.

Smash bros: A very unique fighting game that up until today has no real equals because of it's KO system.

Metroid Prime: At that point in time I didn't see any other fps designed with exploration as theyr main theme and a story that presented itself like this.

Wii: Well the entire console basically.

You couldn't be more accurate, really. They are playing it extremely safe and it's so boring to watch.

I thought with the Wii U not having a motion controller as an integral component and how they said they would try to win back 'hardcore' gamers (scoff scoff), that they were literally going to go back to how they used to do things. However, these shoddy remakes and continuous use of classic themes over and over is quickly sucking my optimism away. I am waiting to see if the new Smash Brothers will turn out anything special like Melee was, but I really don't expect much anymore.

They are stinking up the place with stagnation too and fans will defend them over the tiniest changes. That probably sounds silly to the people who say they keep making the same game, and that's fair enough, but they used to try some different themes while trying to improve on the older ones. Now I just call their stuff competent, and even then I feel like I'm pushing it.

That's a lot of 6-10 year olds with nostalgia issues.

I would guess one for every manchild who thinks CoD and Fifa are the only reason consoles even exist because for every one of those people there will be one person who sees them and despairs, thinking back to the good old days of video gaming when they weren't around i.e. Nintendo.

Wii: Well the entire console basically.

I did say close to 20 years for a reason and the games you listed still aren't exactly recent, the only item you mentioned from the past decade is the Wii and since I am purely talking about games it isn't really relevant. Majoras mask I haven't played so I can't comment on that but Smash Bros. was and still is just a moshpit version of tekken, street fighter, or even dead or alive with Nintendo's stash of overused characters instead of Ken, Ryu, Yoshimitsu etc.

I also said _basically_ no _innovation_, basically and innovation are key words there. Yes there have been some slight innovations in games and yes some of their games are still good but as a whole Nintendo have gradually ground to a halt, constantly relying on the same overrused icons they always have to sell their game for them (e.g. Mario, Link, Pikmin). Yes they still make the _occasional_ good game and very rarely a new Nintendo game will have some minor mechanic that hasn't been seen in other AAA games however for the most part they are coasting on their previous successes. Having mentioned the Wii I don't think it's unfair to say that Nintendo just wouldn't have any sway in any area of gaming other than handheld games today if they hadn't released the Wii and in my opinion it's their games that are holding them back at the moment.

I'm not 'hatin' on Nintendo (on a side note I only hear someone described as 'hating' on something or being a 'hater' when they present a legitimate argument about why they personally don't like something, frankly it's become cliched), they have been a huge force in the gaming industry and I thank them for that but that doesn't give them carte blanche to put any less effort into innovation than they used to. I think the best way to describe my feelings for Nintendo is to liken them to my feelings for Freud. Psychology is my other main passion (aside from gaming) and as many people know Freud is really the godfather of the field, presenting revolutionary ideas that helped change and define psychology for the better. I have huge repsect and gratitude to the man for that, just as I do for Nintendo's pioneering work in consoles. However if you know much about Freud's ideas you will know that they have not stood the test of time and are generally considered dated and even somewhat immature by many (based on overemphasising sex). Nintendo have not kept up with modern gaming, remaking Zelda games or Mario games (they may have different names but the majority of Mario games boil down to a 3d version of the original) over and over and not coming up with anything that keeps them relevant. I also mentioned maturity with Freud because hard hitting characters and stories are not Nintendo's forte by a long shot. It feels like they haven't acknowledged the fact that their audience is older now and often expect more mature content in their games. Now I'm not saying we need more grey-y brown-y games about apocalypses and monsters but it would be nice if Nintendo at least tried to make something more appealing to the older audience than re hashes with the same old cartoon characters. It's certainly not impossible in today's market either- Naughty Dog started out with the Crash games, then moved to the slightly weightier Jak series, before moving onto Uncharted (clearly aimed at the average young adult gamer) and have now had huge success with The Last of Us, an incredibly deep and adult game at its very core. So like I said I certainly don't hate Nintendo, I am very grateful to them for what they have previously done but they're not up to date any more. Unlike Freud they have the oppurtunity to change that and bring themselves more to the forefront in innovation.

In short Nintendo need some new IPs and new characters or they will just fade out (which would no doubt be a shame). Personally I think they could do with one or two franchises that are more serious than the happy go lucky cartoon mascot template that applies to just about every game they have made.

Just realised I misread the post I was replying to slightly. My basic point was that I think there are a lot of older gamers (I didn't read the 6-10 year old bit properly) who have nostalgia for Nintendo in response to the huge number of people out there who basically only buy/ play CoD and Fifa and can't see the vast gaming world that lies beyond those franchises. In retrospect I could have worded it better.

I really don't know why you seem to think that people are wanting back the days of Nintendo. Specifically Nintendo games.

It also has nothing to do with CoD, or Fifa. It has more to do how every other game copies them.

History can't change the fact that was the dominant gaming system. However that also means that much more than Nintendo games were on Nintendo systems.

So to claim that we as in a huge majority of the Escapist are still pining for Mario and Donkey Kong is pretty inaccurate.

Hey, Nintendo, behind you 100% on focusing on new titles. The second you give me a portable Majora's Mask, that is. Please. Nintendo, please do this.
Would a Majora's Mask remake using the Ocarina of Time engine and assets already on the 3ds count as a "Thing that could be done with sheer manpower"? Sure hope so.

Could you guys port Pokemon X&Y to the Wii U real quick? Just to get rid of the frame drops. That poor ARM processor.

Considering Grezzo's great work with Ocarina of Time 3DS, I can see outside studios handling remastering a Zelda game just fine. Even if I would rather have them work on a new game, giving a game like Twilight Princess to Retro Studios to remaster and add content would be awesome. Given their amazing work with making the Gamecube and Wii work their hardest to make Retro made games look amazing on those systems, Twilight Princess's realistic looks, would be right up their alley.

Uh... I don't know if reading all of the current replies to this thread before commenting was right or not...

OT: Well, okay then... A HD Metroid Prime trilogy where you use the gamepad to aim and scan enemies and enviourements, a HD Luigi's Mansion where the gamepad helps you find the ghost and hidden items, a HD... uh... Majora's Mask where the gamepad... uh... wow... Making HD remakes utilizing the Wii U gamepad is harder than I thought it would be...

Nintendo took the high road this day, me thinks...

I agree entirely with all of you. I do love how much we all complain about yearly sequels for games like COD and Fifa and Madden, etc. But when Nintendo puts out maybe two games a franchise in an entire generation they are just following the same model.

There was only one Mario Kart, Smash Brothers, etc last gen... but some how Nintendo just releases the same game with upgrades every year.

FFS Nintendo, we keep playing this game. IF YOU WANT To SWIM IN MY MONEY, JUST MAKE AN HD/CEL-SHADED REMAKE OF MAJORA'S MASK AND WE'LL BE GOOD. JUST FRIGGIN'... FRIGGIN' DO IT, DAMN IT! *gets dragged away, frothing at the mouth*
