and aside from Splatoon and Mario Maker, Nintendo has been making nothing but soulless rehashes for a long time. I say this as a major Nintendo fan.So, you played Steel Diver, Dillo's Rolling Western, and Codename S.T.E.A.M., then? People hate on them for making "soulless rehashes", and then they try something like Federation Force and people go completely bonkers. What do you expect?
On that note, Square did release I Am Setsuna – and everyone likewise apparently went "Meh".
Zelazny's "Amber" set of novels come to mind as something that would yet need to come as the source of video games.Technically there already was an Amber game once, long ago.
In any case I recall can't see anything to be gained by going back to a source like that. Certainly name recognition for something so relatively obscure isn't going to help it sell, nor do I see it as having any particularly fresh ideas that would foster something new in gaming.
