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?

They've become more aware of what fans want and making games they want made this generation, imo. People have been begging for this for over a decade. If they think it will sell really well, they could have reprioritized schedules to push it up further.

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.

I also believe a lot of Wii U games were intentionally pushed off from being released, well after they were complete, to spread out their first party games since Wii U had such terrible 3rdnparty support. Switch doesn't have that problem. 



Paper Mario, I can see coming. I was expecting something like that this year anyway. I mean, it's one of the Nintendo IP that aren't on the Switch yet.

A 2D Metroid however seems weird, especially in light of Metroid Prime 4 coming at a later date. I simply don't expect Nintendo to develop 2 Metroid games side by side, especially not in a way that both would have released about the same time if MP4 wouldn't have been scrapped and restarted along the way.

What if they were planning to release both around the same time? What if then2-D Metroid game, is a prequel/side story to the greater arc going on in MP4, like Arkham blackgate was to the Arkham 3D games? I think it would generate more hype and before successful.



Metroid 5 has been rumored since last year, so nothing new here.

Paper Mario sounds realistic. Fire Emblem: Three Houses was programmed by Tecmo-Koei studios, so Intelligent Systems was able to make another game on their own in the meantime. Additionally, all factors to "justify" Sticker Star/Color Splash are a thing of the past. Shigeru Miyamoto doesn't get to make calls on software development anymore, plus AlphaDreams has filed for bankruptcy, so there won't be two concurrent Mario RPG series.

But for both rumored games it holds true that being a realistic possibility doesn't mean that the games are real.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

I may or may not be excited, but I am certainly not "excite", whatever that means.

But that's what they did with prime and fusion.

Yes, but only if it's like the first two Paper Mario games.



We'll know if this is true or not in the next Direct. Which, hopefuly, it will air soon.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

But those came for different Platforms. Prime was for the Gamecube, Fusion for the GBA. Here, both would come for the same platform and would have eaten each other's sales if they released like that.
