How do you think Nintendo is going to handle the 3DS going forward now that they know the Switch is viable? Do you think they'll stick to their January statement that both systems will continue to co-exist?

I am sure that they will stick to their January statement, because that plan went never beyond normal late life support for a Nintendo handheld. This co-existence never meant something along the lines of "expect more top-of-the-line first party games for the 3DS."

In their latest financial results, Nintendo showed data that back catalogue games going as far back as 2011 stilll managed to sell 500k-1m units each in the past fiscal year alone. There is clearly demand left for the 3DS platform, and the rising share of 2DS sales in the past fiscal year is the reason for the New 2DS XL, a 2DS model with clamshell design and the more popular bigger screens.

The co-existence means that the 3DS platform will be coasting on evergreen titles and a new hardware revision. There's no reason to believe that Switch and 3DS will receive equal support going forward, the 3DS merely continues to exist because there's still demand and its hardware and software are in a different league than Switch when it comes to price.

The only question mark is the rumored Pokémon Stars. It could be 3DS-only, but I am thinking it will be a dual-release for 3DS and Switch.

That's encouraging news. The Switch will need a constant stream of games from all of Nintendo's teams because I don't expect much from 3rd parties in the near future.

Part of the January statement that bugged me was that they outlined that the Switch is not a replacement for the 3DS which kinda left the door open for an eventual successor to be announced down the line.

on 19 May 2017

Switch is already on track to inherit the third party support of 3DS and Vita which is almost exclusively Japanese software. Indies from all across the world will show up as well. There's no reason to expect substantial third party support from the big publishers of America and Europe, but otherwise it's looking pretty good for the mid to long term. But you are right that 2017 won't be loaded.

Nintendo never said anything about Switch not replacing the 3DS, but there were news articles floating around that claimed the contrary because of loose interpretations of what NIntendo said. It goes back to this co-existence which really only means that Nintendo won't immediately discontinue the 3DS. Discontinuation was the specific question in one interview and Kimishima said that the 3DS will continue to be produced; there were gaming news that removed the question and presented Kimishima's answer as something that implied that there will be a separate line of handhelds going forward.

One interesting announcement related to this is that Nintendo's presentation at E3 will be about Switch while the 3DS will be shoved into the Treehouse. Switch and 3DS are clearly not equal.

on 19 May 2017

Yeah I did see that news. I even joked that the 3DS was getting the Vita treatment (which might have been harsh, nobody deserves the Vita treatment...except the Vita of course).

How often do you plan on bumping your Switch Predictions thread? As often as Nintendo provides figures that contrast the general (incorrect) opinion of the people who posted in it?

At least once per quarter. But I actually might start to add links of other threads where Switch gets doubted. Of course, others can dump such links in my thread too. I don't think it will hurt to collect all the sub-50m stuff.

on 03 May 2017

That's dedication. I thought of collecting links to these posts as they happened but decided I also didn't care enough. However, if you end up making a thread of shame I'm all for it.

Nintendo Switch, brought to you by the Kubler-Ross model

I have no idea what that means.

Oh, the five stages of grief. Yup, we are witnessing denial right now, although a few went straight to anger.

Well, I've been going through some older threads on the site, and I actually forgot that you're the Greatest User of 2014! How do you plan on retaking the crown this year?

With my Switch sales prediction thread.

I can't speak for level ups with absolute certainty, but I'd assume everything is reset. I'll need the try it out to be sure though.

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia discussion.

in Gaming Discussion 1 hour ago

I haven't played the game since last week, but I was wondering about something. If the turnwheel is used after a bad level up to go back right before the level up, is the RNG rolled differently? Because that would be a great help. Like I said earlier in this thread, I've a bunch of units who got lots of bad level ups and can't be relied upon as a result. Either I find a spot to level up or I...
