Meh, no big news. That only covers titles with the Nintendo logo (which, granted, were the majority of the good ones, but none of the BEST)

Kick-ass. I'm really looking forward to the Rev.; moreso than the other two. Now if only Nintendo could cut back on the prices for the new titles.

I believe the Zelda and Mario franchises are both Nintendo, and are some of the greatest games to come out for any console, ever.

Sure, you don't have the FF franchises, RE, and some others, but this is a pretty big deal.

Nintendo is working with 3rd parties to get their games too...
But it may not be 'free'...
From what I understand 3rd parties can either do what Nintendo is doing, free...
Or they could come up with their own prices...
...
I can't imagine why somebody wouldn't release their game...
It's already been made and if they charged a few bucks it would be easy money...

Rare was a 2nd party developer at the time so I think Nintendo has the rights to those games. Rare made a Star Fox game didnt they? Nintendo still makes Star Fox games.

It was around the same time...
Infact it was Ed Fries who lead the charge to buy several developers...
Rare being the biggest at $375 mill...

Nintendo kept the IPs for Donkey Kong Country, Diddy Kong, and Star Fox...
Rare still has Perfect Dark, Conker, and Banjo-Kazooie...
