    Why don’t thesy release a Demo for pikmin. I’ve never seen a nintendo first party title getting a demo, why is that? It would help sales incredibly

    They just don’t seem to see the value in them. It’s crazy. It was a lot worse with Wii where the way the wiimote was implemented could make or break a game quite badly.

    I would love Nintendo to embrace demos, but Doc seems to be right. Nintendo just don’t do demos.

    The limited space on the U’s built-in HDD might be a factor.

    Nah – third parties do demos. I’ve played Rayman Legends, Sonic Racing, FIFA and MH3U. Just no Nintendo ones.

    This is one of the finest and most polished games i’ve ever played.

    Art style and graphics are amazing, but playability and gameplay is a pure dream.

    I used to spend a lot of time exploring the countryside and messing around in ponds / rivers etc… as a kid, so maybe it’s just because it brings that kind of feeling back to me.

    Still, it’s a fantastic gaming achievment and makes me happy certain devs are still making games that want to be games.

    There is no data that says demos help with sales. Most Wii U owners know if they want the game or not. Now third party demos is what we need more of.

    I don’t think they need demos. You know what you are going to get when you purchase a Nintendo title…. Wish I could say the same about other publishers.
