      new TLZ and pokemon games coming up soon, also the next SBB and the year of Luigi... Always a fan of Nintendo, would be a great opportunity to have one. Also, Nintendo is the best choice, as a company, for promoting education, learning and exploring if you will, since it's the only gaming company that cares for that. Nintendo will never die
