  3. Is there a reason Nintendo doesn't put effort into remakes?

Why are higher ups signing off on crap like Shadow Dragon and Sticker Star?


What was wrong with Shadow Dragon? As far as remakes went it overhauled almost the entire game, mechanics-wise,class-wise, weapons wise, stats wise to be more in-line with the more recent entries of the series added entirely brand new features used in even the most recent one(Re-class) and overhauled features added in the previous games(Forging) and added more difficulty levels, bonuses for higher weapon rank, an online multiplayer mode.

Infact in the context of this topic this makes no sense, Shadow Dragon has to be the best example of a remake with a lot of effort put into it, but it's crap?

I think people are just getting the terms port and remake confused. A remake is when the game is completly remade from the ground up, like Resident Evil on Gamecube or Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver. Whereas a port is just porting an existing game run on a different system and maybe touching up the graphics and controls or adding some small things, like with Ocarina of Time 3D or Metal Gear Solid 3D.


You were right up to that part.
