Mario > Sega = Nintendo’s quality control

July 9, 2008

Don’t let Dogz, Horsez, Babiez, Herpez, Fecez, and the waves upon god-forsaken waves of shovelware crap the DS and Wii get fool you. The Large N does keep a firm grip on quality control for their platforms. As a matter of fact, there’s a recipe. Shiggs has even let the secret slip: Nintendon’t make games like Sega.

When asked about maintaining quality control at Nintendo, Miyamoto says the key is in avoiding Sega-style design. He tells Wired, “I’m always instructing my game designers on the history of the characters and worlds we’ve created. Often we’re in development and I’ll say, ‘Oh, this looks like a Sega game. We need to make it look more like Mario.'”

Tons more Mario, lot less SEGA software of any type or form. With the track records this far, it’s a sound gameplan. Let’s cancel all Nintendo releases of Sonic Unleashed and Bioware’s RPG right now, else the money train derails.
