    Nintendo E3 Predictions/Wishlist

    in Nintendo Discussion 4 days ago

    We're about 3 weeks away from E3, and Nintendo so far is set to have a jam-packed 2019. With the Switch now on its 3rd year, and the 3DS finally retired, this will be the E3 for Nintendo to show how serious it they are with the Switch and its success. The interesting thing this year, is that Nintendo isn't dedicating the show to one particular game like the past few years, so we'll probably...

    The future of major third party Switch games will be mid-budget

    gamingsoul said: ptofhearts said: History repeats itself. Nintendo is a powerhouse and honestly they could keep the Switch alive on their own. Of course it's important to have third party support but their catalogue of exclusive games is still their most powerful weapon. Sure they did a great job keeping the Wii U alive, history repeats itself you buy a Nintendo console just...

    The future of major third party Switch games will be mid-budget

    in Nintendo Discussion on 17 April 2019

    As you know, this generation is winding down in the spotlight, come next year, the 9th gen systems will make their debut. Sony's already blown the lid on specs for PS5, and everything they've listed sounds very impressive for next gen, and we're still waiting to see what Microsoft plans on doing with Scarlett. One common fear is that because next gen systems will be arriving, that means that...

    Is it really accurate to compare Nintendo to Disney at this point?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 06 April 2019

    In the gaming community, Nintendo is often cited as "the Disney of gaming" and while that may have been true during the 90s or 80s, in 2019? The two companies couldn't be anymore different. Now yes, Nintendo and Disney share similarities. They're both known for family-friendly content, and both have an empire of well known characters in pop culture that they want to protect and look after as...

    How much will HD development actually hurt handheld developers on Switch?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 20 February 2019

    Megiddo said: Octopath Traveler is a 2D game. Apples and oranges there. If your suggestion is to move all 3D modelers/animators etc over to 2D then that will of course hurt that developer. That's not an easy switch. With Engines like Unity and Unreal Engine, crafting 3D models is easy as well. You seem to think game development is still stuck in the early 2000s, where nearly...

You seem to believe that there is an audience that can be served which is no longer there on a traditional handheld platform. All you need to do is look at Octopath Traveler. It's a SNES-style...

    vivster said: Zero. All this "HD games are expensive" is a moronic and untrue narrative that handheld fanboys like to tell themselves to justify their bottom shelf hardware. Also HD =/= AAA. More hyperbolic than untrue. They are correct that AAA games, or in this case what would've been considered AAA on a handheld, will take longer and cost more to make on Switch due to its...

    Megiddo said: Oh absolutely, just look at how long poor Yokai Watch 4 and the HD Inazuma Eleven games have been delayed. And on the other side of the ticket, poor Compile Heart looks absolutely lost without the Vita to sell its low budget fanservicy RPGs. Its latest release "Arc of Alchemist" sold just 3,300 copies last week (its initial week) in Japan. That's not a port. That's a new...

    in Nintendo Discussion on 17 February 2019

    Conina said: Most "3DS AAA games" or "DS AAA games" were AA games (or good indie games) anyways. A more powerful system is no problem. Not every game has to use all the resources of the system to be considered "good" or "great". Of course, which is my point. Games that were considered AAA on past Nintendo handhelds are now held to a higher standard on the Switch, which means more...

    How much will HD development actually hurt handheld developers on Switch?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 17 February 2019

    AAA games are expensive. The rise of HD assets and increased audience expectations from more powerful hardware leads to higher costs and longer development times. Nobody was immune from this, and in the case of the big publishers, things only continue to grow worse. But as far as games in general are concerned, games are actually easier to make than ever these days thanks to the flexibility of...

    Up to 11 new Nintendo unannounced games to be revealed this year.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 15 February 2019

    Wyrdness said: Next direct is likely going to be a dedicated one possibly to Pokemon Gen 8 for a short reveal before E3 like what they did with Sun and Moon my guess is around May. I think we're going to get one more general Direct before E3 simply because of Super Mario Maker 2. April would be a good time to flesh out more details and give us a release date if its releasing in...

    Was the hybrid nature of the Switch difficult for developers to adjust to?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 15 February 2019

    2019 is looking to be the year the Switch starts hitting its true stride With the 3DS on death's door, and third parties having enough time to get more games ready, 2019 and 2020 look to be the peak years for the system. But it's easy to forget that there were some growing pains for the Switch. Even with its success in 2017 and 2018, it took a while for developers to really understand what the...

    Does Nintendo Have a Scheduling Problem for 2019?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 15 February 2019

    I think everything is going to make its 2019 release date. I know some people are disappointed with the lack of a big Nintendo release for early 2019, But that's really nothing new for Nintendo. They've never really focused on releasing big games during that period, most of their major titles for the year come in the later half as that's the period where Nintendo makes most of their sales. A lot...

    peachbuggy said: I kind of think that too. I just got the feeling they had so much more they could have shown, especially from 3rd parties and given the rumours. At this point it seems that May is pretty barren from a Nintendo perspective, so i wouldn't be surprised if they had a direct in March given that there have been strong rumours for certain titles from Nintendo and sneaked a...

    in Nintendo Discussion on 14 February 2019

    I think Nintendo is only scratching the surface of their 2019 lineup. I think we'll have another Direct in April to show even more unannounced first party games coming in 2019, plus at least one more 2019 reveal at E3. Remember, there could be as many as 11 upcoming first party games, so I think there's more to be seen....

    What would you say was the peak of the DS & 3DS respectively?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 14 February 2019

    With the 3DS now seemingly done on new releases, I think it's time we look back at the two platforms in the DS line and judge what their best years were. Starting with the original Nintendo DS. While it was slow out of the gate during its launch, it quickly made a name for itself thanks to a lineup of great and unique titles from Nintendo and third party developers. In terms of quantity and...

    Furukawa: "Expanding the gaming population no longer fits the current situation"

    AngryLittleAlchemist said: I don't think Miyamoto has much to do with Nintendo's PR or their official press releases, but I could be wrong. Miyamoto basically says every game he likes is a failure from a sales perspective (StarFox, Pikmin, etc.) and it's usually because he takes these projects as his baby. At least from my understanding of it. I don't think he's as good a source as...

Initial shipment is supposed to be the initial sales, not the first year sales. You can say that the numbers are not that bad, but the fact that they sold in 8 months (after price cut) what they expected to sell in the first weeks shows...
