More IP revivals also on the table, says Fils-Aime.

Nintendo is “looking hard at” bringing Tomodachi Collection: New Life, launched on April 18 in Japan to tremendous sales, to the western market, Nintendo of America president and COO Reggie Fils-Aime has said. 

Relating it to Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Fils-Aime told MTV Multiplayer Tomodachi Collection “is something that we are looking hard at for our market” and that it’s another title “that benefits from those short bursts of play, on a day-in, day-out basis.”

Fils-Aime also said they’re also considering more IP revivals, similar to 3DS bringing back Kid Icarus and Luigi’s Mansion, for Wii U and 3DS.

“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?” he said. “Maybe those franchises that have been dormant for a few years, that we can loving bring to those platforms to drive our business forward.”

  • Zackasaur

    I love Animal Crossing: New Leaf, but I don’t want this.

    I wish Nintendo would get creative and make some new IPs, rather than digging up old graves.

    New Ice Climbers?

    • Auragar

      Could be cool, I wonder what they’d do with it.

    • Elvick

      Action adventure with platforming elements, RPG elements and co-op.

      Do it Nintendo. I’ve given a revival of Ice Climbers a lot of thought.

  • Farid Belkacemi

    New Metroid Nintendo, on 3DS or Wii U, your call. Just do it !

    • Auragar

      Or both. o-o

    Any Wii U game they can localise would be good.
    All the games slated for 2014 seem like a while away.

    Wind Waker remake in October is good news though.

    • MosquitoLemon

      It’s a 3DS game

      • AdamBoy64
