I know and that sets Nintendo apart from pretty much everyone in the market. They are idealists, not businessmen. It's weird, and sometimes annoying. But eh...

I like how they're idealists, it creates room for more innovation. They're not looking to make a quick buck fast and cheap. Sometimes they are forced to throw things out there quickly just so they have something for people to hold over with. But during that time they're at least working on greater things.

Yeah I for some reason think Super Mario 3D World was one of those forced products. At least it was still good.

Sorry for the double post. But yeah, Nintendo just had their investors meeting. If you wanna read up on it, head here: http://www.nintendo....0130/index.html

 

Anyway, one part that stuck out to me was Nintendo saying they were 'Licensing out their characters.' This could mean anything from marketing toys and thing to other companies, to advertising, to actually letting other game companies tackle their licenses to make more IPs available. This is exciting to me <3

 

As an example, here's a Campbell's commercial that just started showing. It has the Wii U on display and could possibly get people wondering.

Yes, but how often do you see it advertised? Nintendo has been protecting it's characters for a long time now, it seems they want to change that!
