UK games publication EDGE has named Nintendo as the best publisher of 2013. (How after all the shit UK did with Wii U and not buying it? They like Nintendo but don’t want to but it?) Nintendo was up against Ubisoft and Sony Computer Entertainment, but managed to scoop the acclaimed accolade. EDGE had this to say about Nintendo in 2013.
“With no new hardware to launch, Nintendo spent 2013 focusing on games, and it’s been uncommonly prolific. 3DS got the best Animal Crossing, the best Fire Emblem and, in X&Y, perhaps the best Pokémon yet. On Wii U, we had a loving Pikmin update and the vibrant, majestic Super Mario 3D World. Also encouraging was a willingness to partner with external studios. The Wonderful 101 might not have hit the mark, but it represents a welcome shift away from total dependency on peerless internal studios.”
