    RUMOR : Nintendo Direct for the Feb. 13th

    in Nintendo Discussion on 11 February 2019

    I find it astonishing the amount of hysterical gloom and doom flying around. Personally I've never had so much choice on a Nintendo system. As someone else pointed out, the Switch userbase grew by 40% over the last 2 or 3 months, Nintendo have had their best holiday quarter since the Wii/DS era, one of their best ever software launches in Smash, and four consecutive months where they've launched...

As for 11 unannounced games, Rogers has said 3 will be eShop titles and a couple will likely be Wii U ports. Add in heavily rumoured things like Prime Trilogy and at least one Labo pack,...

    Dark Souls is overrated, it simply isn’t fun

    in Gaming Discussion on 06 February 2019

    I'm not sure where I stand on it yet - I'm 20 hours into my first playthrough and am in Anor Londo. Most of the time I haven't actually had much difficulty with boss fights; I've usually killed them on the first or second attempt. I've also done some optional areas, like Darkroot Garden/Basin, the Catacombs (I hate the wheel skeletons), and the Painted World (entirely accidental - I didn't...

    How many will be Nintendo's forecast for FY2019 ?

    in Sales Discussion on 04 February 2019

    I voted for 20 million but I think that's too high for the initial prediction. The revision at their latest briefing suggests some conservatism so I think 18 million or 19 million is a likelier forecast. Personally, with Animal Crossing, Pokemon, Luigi's Mansion 3 and a wider variety of original first-party titles (as opposed to ports) and greater third-party support (at retail and on the eShop),...

    Wii/DS each had ten 10-million-plus sellers. Switch has five and it's not even 2 years old

    Bofferbrauer2 said: Asriel said: I seriously can't believe people are legitimately naming Metroid Prime 4 and Fire Emblem as possible 10 million sellers. Yeah I checked the numbers after I posted and they were selling quite a bit less than I expected. I still think Three Houses will become the bestselling one in the series, but 10M+ is nigh impossible considering the...

    Another Wii U port in 2019?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 03 February 2019

    Conina said: He said "It's a massive game. Re-creating it would be really difficult." That sounds like a more ambitious approach where they upgrade most of the assets (similar to the Crash Bandicoot and Spyro trilogies or Windwaker HD). But a simple port of the engine with the same resolution (undocked) or a bit higher resolution (docked) would be good enough for many...

    I'd have to say yes, at this point. Given how strongly key Nintendo franchises are performing, it's a good bet. Already over 10m: Mario Kart 8 DX, Super Mario Odyssey, Smash Ultimate, Zelda, Pokemon Let's Go Should hit 10m, probably in 2019: Splatoon 2, Animal Crossing, Pokemon Generation 8 Could hit 10m: Super Mario Party We're up to 8 practically guaranteed 10 million sellers and a possible...

    in Nintendo Discussion on 03 February 2019

    Conina said: Asriel said: It doesn't matter who ports it - it's the size and scale of the challenge which makes it unlikely. Thats what Tetsuya Takahashi said. You acknowledged it yourself: a port needs to make sense in terms of resources expended. If they get the engine running properly on the Switch, most assets won't have to be touched. It's not a Wii port where most...

    Another Wii U port in 2019?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 03 February 2019

    Miyamotoo said: Asriel said: Some of these suggested ports don't make much sense or have been ruled out. With Mario Maker and Pikmin 3 it makes more sense for Nintendo to make new entries, given 3DS got its own version of Mario Maker, so I would expect Switch to get one too. Pikmin 4 has been talked about in the past as nearly finished - so it may be ready to launch any time soon....

I was also specifically talking about ports in the context of this year and the ways in which some of these titles wouldn't necessarily fit. We've had one Mario port this year; Mario Maker had a unique version for 3DS so I'd expect that Switch gets a unique version too; Pikmin 3 is more likely...

    in Nintendo Discussion on 03 February 2019

    Conina said: Asriel said: Some of these suggested ports don't make much sense or have been ruled out.  I'm curious... which ports of Wii U games wouldn't make sense? The WiiU is a dead platform with no further software sales, on Switch these titles can bring in additional revenue and profit. As long as the revenue is higher than the porting costs, every port makes...

    Nikkei rumor: Nintendo Switch Mini Launches In Mid 2019, New Online Services Aimed At Core Gamers

    in Nintendo Discussion on 01 February 2019

    Initially, I thought there'd be issues shrinking Switch down and making it compatible with current docks - but looking at my model, it'd be fairly easy to make something smaller, which fits in the current dock but isn't as tall or as wide as the Switch with joycons attached (it would obviously need to stick out of the dock - which could be achieved). A system with circle pads instead of analog...

    Nintendo says they have at least 1 unannounced game that'll make fans go crazy & 1 heavily online focused game for FY 2019

    in Nintendo Discussion on 01 February 2019

        Ah - the Q&A transcript definitely isn't there yet. The context in which this was said is key - if it was a generic statement, then we're no closer to knowing what game it is. If it was said as a response to questions about third party support, it'd be a third party title, and if it's a question about the Metroid Prime 4 delay - I think we could assume it's...

If it was in the Q&A and a transcript exists, the sensible thing to do would be to see what question was asked which prompted this response.
