    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...

    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...

    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...

    NPD: 50% of Switch Owners Have a PS4. 40% Have a Xbox One.

    in Nintendo Discussion on 31 January 2019

    Switch plus Xbox One. I actually sold my Xbox One to get the Switch, but then got a free Xbox One S when I upgraded my phone in the summer. I don't really use the X1 for gaming - Switch is my main system. I'm hanging onto the X1 though, because it'll be a good backwards compatible system for my 360 and original Xbox games....

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

    in Nintendo Discussion on 31 January 2019

    If this is real - which I think it easily could be - it's presumably come about in no small part thanks to Switch's performance in Japan. From Nintendo's perspective, Switch hasn't quite solved the problem of reconciling a portable-centric Japanese market with a home console-centric Western market. Switch is trending behind both 3DS and DS in Japan and that'll be cause for concern for Nintendo,...

    Nintendo FY Q3 Results (Switch 32.3m LT, Smash Bros 12m, Pokemon 10m..)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 31 January 2019

    "No, I highly doubt it - that soft spring quarter has hamstrung them somewhat. They needed to be coming in at around 3 million units or more for each quarter outside of Q3; 1.88 million in Q1 just wasn't good enough. Labo clearly hasn't taken off the way they hoped; the three packs combined have probably sold less than Xenoblade Chronicles. Selling less than a middle-tier JRPG is not what you...

    Nintendo FY Q3 Results (Switch 32.3m LT, Smash Bros 12m, Pokemon 10m..)

    in Nintendo Discussion on 31 January 2019

    RolStoppable said: Lower than expected hardware shipments for the quarter. The reduction of the forecast to 17m instead of 17.5m means that Nintendo wants to be sure to meet the new goal as shipping 2.5m units in the final quarter is much less of a challenge than 3m. The PS4 shipped 17.7m units in its second full fiscal year when it had a $50 price cut, so in the big picture Switch sales...

    Nintendo Switch sold 14.49 million from Apr-Dec 2018. Apr-18 - Mar-19 Forecast 17 million

    SKMBlake said: Noobie said: In Jan-Mar Quarter of 2018, Nintendo shipped 2.93 million and so far this financial year their non-holiday quarters have been less than stellar.  So adding 2.93 to 14.49 million would have given them 17.4 million. and expecting them to hit 18 million meant that they have to beat last year results by 20%, which is not an easy thing to do especially...
