Pokemon on Switch is still a major move as would be most significant technological leap for that series in a long time.  If 2017 comes and goes and no major 3DS titles have successors announced for Switch I will become very concerned with Nintendo and handheld gaming.

Yeah, we'll see. No matter what, though, I really can't see this thing doing 3DS numbers.

Not at $300.  If there is room for a price cut to $200 in the next 18 months it has a shot.  Depends on Nintendo's philosophy as the Wii U held at price points long after its sales were consistently poor.



I mean, I see Switch being a moderate commercial success. It's clearly going to step into Vita's role in Japan which is multi-plat with PS4 titles, which is basically all Vita's had its whole life (alongside PS3 multiplats) and it pushed 6m there. Switch should easily do more with the additional Nintendo franchises.

In the west, I don't see it selling to more than the Nintendo hardcore really, just like Wii U did.

One thing's for certain - I was expecting to wake up this morning and see all kinds of amazing Switch news all over the front page. Betrayalton of this dev going over to them; that game being announced and the price being competitive. None of that happened. They're getting a load of late ports; the western third parties STILL aren't on board; the Japanese third parties aren't announcing anything really new and the indies were barely present.

It's certainly convinced me that I'm happy with my Vita/PS4 setup for at least another year. Beyond that we'll see where the console is at that point and whether I can justify a purchase.



lol, me too. I thought we'd see some devs already jumping ship considering they are leaving the vita behind and mid size japanese games aren't selling that great on ps4.

Something like a new God eater for switch/ps4/vita , Toukiden port maybe, DanganRonpa, even a Dragon quest builders port considering how popular the brand is on Nintendo platforms.(was also secretly wishing for Ys/Kiseki). That and ports of a western game or 2. I don't think I was too hyped since all I'm talking about are ports with the exception of a new God eater.

Then there is room for hype inducing stuff like teasers for pokemon switch, Dragon Quest confirmation for switch, Monster Hunter switch etc... That is not to say these are not coming in the future, but I honestly thought Nintendo would just go all out to hype the fans after the WII U.

Edit : where the f*** ar you Vanillware !!?

Haha, you're such a nervous nelly!

Success of switch depends entirely on how much they are willing to drop the price and how fast they are willing to do it. The pricing is a fking joke. What a mess

Yeah. What was surprising for me is (so far) it doesn't seem like they've really done anything to court any of the mid-to-big tier games over from PS4/Vita despite a lot releasing over the coming months. Off the top of my head - DanganRonpa V3; Valkyria Revolution; Super Robot Wars V; Musou Stars; Blue Reflection; Accel World vs. SAO etc. All this stuff - Vita games, that'd be an easy port over to Switch that seems to be absent. Instead it just looks like they've gone to Square Enix and given then a small amount of money to port over some recent games and said "that'll do" (and NIS decided to port Disgaea 5 as a "hey look we're Nintendo devs now!" pity port).

I've no doubt that 1 year down the line, we'll see more of these games go PS4/Switch, but right now for the foreseeable future it looks like Vita is still a safe bet for multi-plats. Which of course I'm very pleased with as long as they come west, but still a bit surprised with.

I'm just gonna see where Falcom/Gust end up. Those are my two favourites of the otaku developers. I've a feeling NIS will cling on to Vita/PS4 for a while longer and Compile Heart/Acquire do whatever the hell they want, which is good for us at least (Compile Heart will be on board for longer, I can almost guarantee that. I'd be surprised to see them embracing Switch).

4 years of being a Vita fan has helped with that :P



I think the sales of Sen III will be key for Falcom's strategy. If the game manages to sell numbers that they are pleased with then I guess they will stick with the Ps4. If not, we might end up seeing some ps4/switch Falcom games in the future.

I see that Gust released 3 ds games. Did they not sell well ? I'm guessing that's the case since they haven't touched the 3ds since launch except for Rorona (which they went chibi style with...).

I still maintain Sen III PS4-only is a mistake. They'll need to sell like 160k FW for it to match the predecessors. There's just no way that's happening. It'd have to sell more than Star Ocean did on PS4.

I know Vita held back the previous two release, but this is Falcom, who released a dual-UMD game. Falcom who squeezed all of their PC releases onto PSP. I know they have a specific story they want to tell but there's no reason they couldn't have tailored it to be told on Vita too, and in doing so they'd guarantee themselves ~100k+ sales domestically.

And it'd make more sense to start their next story arc with a PS4-only game - make the most of the hardware, make it a showcase etc. Don't do it for the third in a trilogy, just bizarre.

Ah well.

re. Gust, I guess they'll go wherever. This year they dropped the PS4/PS3/Vita strategy for just PS4/Vita. I'd imagine we'll get Atelier Mysterious 3 in fall/winter on PS4/Vita and then they'll drop Vita and we'll have to see what they do after that.



I honestly have no clue what Japan is thinking about the Switch. The third parties might have seen it before hand and realized this might not do well. I mean, when you bring your Japanese third party developers to your conference and all they say is "We haven't started to work on anything", that's a huge warning. They didn't even show Dragon Quest. PS4 and 3DS have gameplay footage. Such a Japanese focused conference, and they didn't show any Dragon Quest running. I think Square might be worried and are bound by whatever contract they signed back in the DS days. Hell the only game from Square they showed is a PSP looking 2.5D JRPG. That's a huge problem when you consider the 3DS launched with a relatively full fledged Kingdom Hearts game. That excuse of a Street Fighter instead of Monster Hunter is really worrying for the Switch. Like expected this to sell at least 20 million in Japan. I have no clue now. I suspect the Vita's niche might be migrating over to the PS4/PC instead.
