    NPD: PS4 2016 vs Switch 2019

    in Sales Discussion on 05 July 2019

    Thanks for putting this together. Switch has a pretty steady slate of software coming now - Marvel and Fire Emblem in July, Astral Chain in August, Daemon x Machina, Zelda and Dragon Quest in September, Pokemon and Mario & Sonic in November, plus Luigi's Mansion 3 in either October or December, plus multi-platform games and ports. Add in the pretty much inevitable Mini hardware revision and...

    Japan Sales week 26, Jun 24 - 30 2019, Famitsu

    in Sales Discussion on 03 July 2019

    First week/LT Japanese sales for the other two versions of Super Mario Maker: 3DS Super Mario Maker (FW) 160.016 (LT) 1.184.885 WIU Super Mario Maker (FW) 143.514 (LT) 1.076.843 Super Mario Maker 2 should hit around 1.5 million in Japan - and depending on digital plus the inevitable Mini model of the Switch, could make it to the 2 million mark. My assumption is the Mini model plus price cut will...

    Should Nintendo use Unreal Engine 4 and Unity in more of their games?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 24 June 2019

    Digital Foundry suggested the Link's Awakening remake may have been made in Unreal Engine 4. I think Grezzo did advertise for staff with Unreal experience back in late 2017, when they were likely recruiting for the Link's Awakening game. Link's Awakening looks gorgeous, but one issue every preview mentioned was frame-rate drops in the game's overworld, which fits with other UE4 games on Switch. ...

    Breath of the Wild 2 will take place in the same Hyrule.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 13 June 2019

    I think this is interesting but it's also obvious the map is going to change. One of the most significant landmarks of the first game - Hyrule Castle - is ascending into the sky at the end of the trailer. It's a very obvious sign that while this is a world we've been to before, it's not going to be the world we know inside out - which is why that shot has us looking out from the Great Plateau....

    Zelda: BotW Sequel is "Majora's Mask" revisited?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 11 June 2019

    That is 100% Ganon's corpse. The hand holding it down is some kind of Sheikah magic sealing the corpse beneath the earth. My guess is what we're seeing is the very start of the game - Zelda and Link travel beneath the castle to find and destroy Ganon's corpse, but things go wrong. Ganon breaks free and retakes his human form (which has presumably been sealed for millenia given what we learn in...

    Official Nintendo E3 2019 Thread!

    in Nintendo Discussion on 07 June 2019

    The biggest surprises I can see happening are the Witcher 3 reveal (which is no longer a surprise for the absolute core audience) and a teaser for a fan-favourite 2020 title. Broadly, I think we'll get: - Reminders and trailers for Mario Maker 2, Marvel, Fire Emblem, Astral Chain - Shadow drop for Cadence of Hyrule - A surprise eShop game - Indie news, with a focus on games coming first to...

    I'll happily board the bus. Even if the wildest rumours don't come true, more details for Fire Emblem, Marvel and Astral Chain, plus details and release dates for Link's Awakening, Luigi's Mansion, Animal Crossing and Dragon Quest XI S will make me a happy chap. Anything else is icing on the cake. ...

    Pokemon Direct - June 5th 2019 @6am PT/9am EST/2pm BST/10pm JST

    in Nintendo Discussion on 05 June 2019

    The stadiums shown in the debut trailer will relate to some new gimmick - and part of it will involve online functionality.I also think we're going to get some large, open field areas with visible Pokemon (random encounters reserved for linear routes and dungeons). The region map is an odd shape, and it looks like a couple of spaces could be freely explorable (by Pokemon standards). I don't think...

    GameStop's internal system adds 21 untitled Switch SKUs

    Super Mario Maker 2: Are you a Maker?

    in Nintendo Discussion on 18 May 2019

    I'm definitely getting it for the story mode and the ability to play other people's levels, but I'll also be giving the Maker side of it a fair shot. I haven't played a previous version so I've no idea how much enjoyment and use I'll get from the tools, but having seen the kinds of creativity Mario Maker allows I'm still confident the game is worth purchasing. ...

    Bloomberg: Nintendo to release cheaper Switch model by end June, 'modest' upgrade by end of year

    in Nintendo Discussion on 24 April 2019

    The 'modest upgrade' could simply be a slightly revised Nvidia processor - doesn't the current model have a flaw that can only be fixed with a hardware revision? There were a bunch of reports last year that the current Switch model could be made to run homebrew applications and pirated games thanks to a flaw in Nvidia's processor which couldn't be patched. My suspicion is Nintendo are...
