Most of Int Sys should be either working on a Paper Mario or something like Wario Ware, since most of the studio didn't work on Three Houses, only a handful of key people. As far as dreams with Paper Mario, one with the structure and pacing of 64, the story of Super and the presentation in art direction and music from Sticker and Color Splash would be a perfect mix for me.

As far as 2D Metroid, well some year a rumor about it is going to land and I'll be pretty excited when it happens.



Let's have a champion time!

2d Metroid?? Cool. Let’s hope for the best!



A proper Paper Mario? Don't get my hopes up.



I really hope this is true, Metroid and Paper Mario are one of my favorite franchises of all time. And this rumor does sound somewhat believable cause at this point Nintendo pretty much released so many games on so many different franchises so quickly on the Switch, we already got 3D Mario, 3D Zelda, Mainline Kirby, Mainline Yoshi, Mario Maker, Mario Party,2D Zelda, 2D Mario(Sort of), a Mario Kart, Mainline Fire emblem, Hyrule & Fire Emblem Warriors, Luigi's Mansion, Mainline Pokemon, and Animal Crossing soon.

At this point the only game franchises that Nintendo has yet to make on the Switch is Pikmin, F-Zero, Star Fox, Metroid, Paper Mario, Mario & Luigi, so Paper Mario and Metroid do have a shot at getting some sort of release this year on Switch, and a Pikmin 3 port has been heavily rumored also. So let's just pray its true.

If the Paper Mario rumor is true, I feel like that's pretty big. TTYD was probably the best Nintendo produced story...possibly ever. It had the best humor of any Nintendo game too. If they just give the fans what they want here with a return to TTYD style Paper Mario, I think it could sell systems, and become the best selling Paper Mario to date pretty effortlessly.

I hear a lot of people say the Switch will decline soon because it's out of big guns now that Pokemon has released, but things like this make me think they're wrong. If Nintendo pulls a classic Paper Mario game out of their ass for late summer to fall, and a 2D Metroid (probably Super Metroid remake, lets be real) for fall, then combined with Animal Crossing in early spring, Xenoblade remake in late spring, and perhaps Bayonetta 3 in summer, all they'd need is a holiday release for BotW 2 and they'd have the perfect recipe for an even better year than last year. Especially if the new hardware rumors are true. Then with the new hardware, an exclusive Mario Kart 9, exclusive Metroid Prime 4, and exclusive Odyssey sequel would probably be all it needed to keep that momentum going into 2021 and beyond.

Forget Mario kart 9 on switch or that it needs a hardware revision (though a real switch lite would help). It only needs games and a price cut.



I can't imagine MK9 happening until MK8 Deluxe sales start slacking off or we get a new console.



With Mario and Luigi's developer shutting down, it makes sense that they'd make a more RPGish Paper Mario. Hopefully the rumor is true. A 2D Metroid could be a nice holdover since Prime 4 will probably be at least a couple of years.

??? Don't we already have a Switch lite?

Well it would fit with my expectations of this year being mostly comprised of AA titles rather than any blockbusters. Tokyo Mirage Sessions, Animal Crossing, Xenoblade, Mystery Dungeon, Paper Mario, 2D Metroid and maybe Bayonetta 3, plus one or two more AA surprises.

BotW2 and Odyssey 2 are likely out this year. I would consider Animal Crossing AAA, and if not, it's better than 90% of AAA games anyway, so it makes me happy. Pretty sure No More Heroes 3 is AAA as well and out this year. At the very least we should wait until E3 before saying Nintendo doesn't have anything this year.



The sentence below is false. 
The sentence above is true.

REAL switch lite (dockable).
