Tror det er mye sant i dette. Nintendo har virkelig hatt suksess med nye IPer, som Splatoon, Nintendogs og hjernetreningsspillene som er umulig å stave.;)

Splatoon Sells 4 Million, Shows That "New" is Nintendo's Best Bet

Splatoon Sells 4 Million, Shows That "New" is Nintendo's Best Bet

Nintendo's non-violent shooter found its way into the homes of one-third of all Wii U owners.

Today, Nintendo announced the results of its financial earnings report for the third quarter of fiscal year 2015. Total sales stayed rather flat year-over-year, dropping 3.9 percent to 427.7 billion yen ($3.5 billion), but profits saw a steeper 32 percent decline to 40.5 billion yen ($336 million). Not a great year, but certainly not a bad one either.
Where does Nintendo spend all that money?

Software sales for the period.
its sales figures for software during the nine-month period. The big winner was Splatoon, Nintendo's family-friendly shooter! The game sold 4.06 million during the reporting period, making it the best-performing first party exclusive and Nintendo's biggest title. Other solid performers include Super Mario Maker with 3.34 million sold, Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer with 2.93 million sold, and Mario Kart 8 still holding on with 2.13 million sold, bringing its overall total to 7.24 million copies sold.

Splatoon continues Nintendo's trend of introducing brand-new concepts that take off. On the Nintendo DS, Nintendogs and Brain Age absolutely cleaned up in sales, selling 23.96 million and 19.01 million (for the first game) respectively. The entire "Wii" lineup, from Wii Sports, to Wii Sports Resort, and Wii Play, sold more than 20 million copies each, with the exception of Wii Party, which only sold 9.15 million. The 3DS introduced Tomodachi Life, which went on to sell 4.89 million.

Games like Splatoon show the continuing way forward for Nintendo. Yes, there's a certain amount of mileage in keeping Mario Kart, Super Mario Bros, or Smash Bros alive on new platforms, but Nintendo's proven adept at finding the new genres to play in and those experiments tend to pay off more than other conservative titles. During this nine month period, The Legend of Zelda: Tri Force Heroes and Yoshi's Wooly World sold 1.08 million and 1.31 million copies respectively. Those numbers are respectable, but Splatoon points to a Nintendo that could branch out farther to find more success.

The Mario or Zelda brands are important, but the takeaway is Nintendo has crafted a relatively solid audience that will try out new things as long as Nintendo is behind them. Instead of stretching Zelda into something like Tri-Force Heroes or Metroid into something like Metroid Prime: Federation Force, Nintendo looks to be better off crafting wholly-new projects around those same gameplay concepts.

Of course, the company may not know how to consistently pull out a Splatoon, Nintendogs, or Brain Age. Game development is hard and hitting gold mines in brand-new regions is even harder, but if anyone can do it, it's Nintendo. I'm hoping the company's upcoming partnership with DeNA to create new mobile titles will shake up the development staff a bit and let them pursue some new gameplay concepts away from consoles. Then perhaps those ideas will find their way back to new games on the Wii U or upcoming NX. And that's before we get into whatever new play experiences Nintendo has waiting for us on NX in 2016 and beyond.

Men en ser jo også at Mario Kart 8 selger tålelig bra! Så ja takk, begge deler på meg.

Fant Wii'en i en flytte eske for noen dager siden... Litt dårlig samvittighet :eek:
 
Syns personlig at nintendo bør utvikle flere nye IP'er enn de gjør nå. Splatoon var jo en hyggelig overraskelse, men bortsett fra det så er det ikke så mange som har blitt lansert i nyere tider, som jeg har fått med meg ihvertfall.

Splatoon er resultatet av en ny strategi fra Nintendo, hvor unge utviklere får frie tøyler til å utvikling nye konsepter. Så vi kan jo håpe.

Fra Wikipedia.

Sales
Splatoon debuted at No. 2 in the UK software sales chart in the week it launched, only behind The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. It is the fifth fastest-selling Wii U game and the fastest-selling new intellectual property on the console in that country, beating the previous record set by Ubisoft's 2012 launch title ZombiU.[72] Splatoon debuted at the top of the Japanese software sales chart, with over 144,000 retail copies sold in its launch week and a total of 1.38 million sold by June 2016.[73][74] In the U.S., 165,000 combined physical and downloaded copies were sold in May 2015, with another 290,000 sold in June and 85,000 in July.[75][76] By the end of August 2015, over 600,000 copies had been sold in the region.[77] In March 2016, Nintendo announced that one million copies had been shipped in Europe.[78] By the end of June 2015, 1.62 million copies of the game had been sold worldwide,[79] and by the end of March 2016, worldwide sales reached 4.27 million.[80] In May 2016, Splatoon was announced to be the most successful new intellectual property (IP) in Japan since Wii Sports.[81]
Viser vel at nye IPer faktisk gjør det kjempe bra på Ninty konsoller også :) Men de må få en mulighet.

Interessant at de kaller ZombiU ny IP. Det var det jo ikke. Sovende IP, ja. Men ikke ny.:p

Jeg har det tror jeg, mener det fulgte med konsollen. Men jeg er ikke så glad i skrekkspill, så jeg har ikke prøvd det.

Hvor mange spill til WiiU har du forresten? Jeg har, om Virtual Console ikke regnes med, syv fysiske. Har også ett eller to digitale spill som ikke er VC-spill. For Wii har jeg ni fysiske spill. Så ikke så aller verst attach-rate, egentlig.:)
