My take on a new logo for Nintendo. Constructive criticism is appreciated.

Good initiative but the oldr logo is much better. Your capital N doesn't fit the rest of the letters. The rest of the font is not too consistent, reminds me a bit like a medium ITC-Avantgarde. Font is also used for the new Rare logo.

The font is actually made by me (I'm a noob at it). You're right, still has a lot of room improvement (like you stated the consistency isn't great). What i did was, I started off with Chalet NewYork as a base font and took letters from the Wii U/Miiverse/eShop/Wii U Chat/TVii/Internet Browser logos and glued them all together. I even included special characters like the Miiverse icon and the "U" icon.

Sample:

This is quite an achievement for me as I am 15 and still learning graphic design and typography but eventually i'll be great at it!

I believe one of the reasons why Nintendo has kept the same font for their logo since the NES days is because it's unique and somewhat retro looking.

I kinda see what you mean. It's probably because the old logo's font was more serious-looking (blocky, geometric), and the new font is more rounded.

Yes, Comic sans is amazing. I use it all the time, especially on really important design projects! Don't forget rainbow gradients and drop shadows! /s

Good practise! Do you use Illustrator? You can easily adjust excisting fonts with that one. Try downloading ITC Avantgarde Heavy and Bold/medium. And then adjust that one. You'll see that it will have a same look but a bit more consistent. True, your newer logo is looking a bit more modern but it has less character. Try to keep that in mind.

I use a program called FontCreator. I have Illustrator, so I might try that out. Define "character"?

Character: uniqueness, an own identity. Just copy only a few characters from thevoriginal and show it to someone, chances are that they will still identify it as the Nintendo logo even if you mis the N+NDO. Same cannot be said for your logo.

Hmm.. okay. If you were to redesign the Nintendo logo, how would you do it while keeping it's character?

IMO the new logo looks more retro than the old one.

Looks great, keep it up :)

Nintendo should really own the whole red thing again, Sony has blue, Microsoft have green and red is the retro nintendo colour so they should stick with it.

Haha, the first second I actually thought they had changed their logo to that. I thought "OMG, they're DOOMED!" :)

I almost got scared because I didn't see in which subforum this was in! Nintendo shouldn't change it really.

The difference is very minimal.

This statement is false. The previous statement is true.

RIP in peace Nintendo.

It's nice but I'd have to say that I prefer the current one. It's still not bad at all!
