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.

I tried the mystery dungeon demo. AA is being kind. Kinda sux for me as I prefer theAAA games. Hopin for some solid 3rd party announcements as I too dont see any big AAA announcements comin from 10do other than botw2. Biomutant in particular would be cool. Really sucks considering the potential nintendo routinely fails to realize w alot of their old ip's.

We could really use Samus Returns on Switch though.

I'd much rather something actually fresh and new instead of just recycling an old game. To me there's nothing exciting about that, it's boring.

But it's a big chance to boost sales of a great game that was released on the wrong platform.



A useless rumor, as always I'll believe it when I see it. I mean I don't doubt there's gonna be a new Paper Mario game, but in the style of TTYD after the devs said they were gonna do something new? Obviously they can change their mind, but I'm taking their word over a rumor for now.

As for 2D Metroid, I'm sure we'll get that right after Prime Trilogy HD lul. If this game does happen I could be interested, did enjoy my time with Super.



I'm going to doubt this rumor. It's only been 3 years since Color Splash and it was a big flop. Why would Nintendo be in a rush to get a new game out the door?

I'd prefer a proper Mario RPG sequel but if it's a decent Paper Mario, I'm down.

I've been suggesting this for awhile.  It makes sense.  It's pretty clear that Nintendo isn't quite sure what to do with Paper Mario and needs to retool the series.  Maybe even bring in someone new to run the team.  Meanwhile, reaching out to Square Enix to run with a Mario RPG would be a very tidy solution.

I don't care, I'm not excited about an old game getting a HD paint job on Switch. I am excited about getting actual new games.

Three years isn't really rushing, and Color Splash came out on the dead Wii U.  Would have almost certainly sold at least a million had it come out on the Switch.  Also, the developer for the Mario and Luigi series went bankrupt.  According to Nintendo the reason for Paper Mario's direction was because Mario and Luigi was their Mario RPG franchise.  With the dev going broke now seems like a good time to put that series on hiatus and make a more traditional RPG Paper Mario game.



As with every other rumor. Take it with a massive grain of salt.
I'll believe it when it comes straight from the horse's mouth.

If paper Mario releases this year it will likely be closer to 4 years. Also colour splash wasn't a big flop, according to vgchartz it sold just a little under 900k, which for a late wii u title isn't terrible. A paper mario title on switch would likely sell 2 million minimum.
