Metroid Prime announcement was one of biggest announcements of E3 despite Nintendo showed just logo, Metroid Prime fans were literally crying after announcement. People now know those games are coming, not they will wait to actually see them.
They said "Game Freaks has begun developing" Pokemon for Switch, but they didnt said "recently" or "just". And for Metroid "now in development" can men do not meant they couldn't working on game for quiet time now.
Lie, my vision of E3 2017. was that they will focus on 2017. games and to promote 2017. games on 1st place, and that they will show at least around two 2018. games despite they are focusing on 2017. games. And they did that, they did focus one 2017. games, they did show two 2018. games that will most likly be realased in 1st half of 2018. and they showed 2 games that could be relased in second half of 2018. or beyond. You are very well aware that I wrote to you multiply times that "focus on 2017. games" doesn't mean they will talk or show only 2017. games.
DKTF and Federation Force doesn't have anything with this situation. With Pokemon Nintendo just wanted to ensure people that Pokemon is in development for Switch after 3DS anancument (we are talking about biggest Nintendo IP), and this announcement was very simple, same goes for Metroid Prime. Metroid 3DS announcement isn't nearly important like Metroid Prime 4 announcement, its remaster of 2D Metroid game, fact that is announced at TreeHouse also proves that.
It totaly make sense, but you still dont get it. Pokemon Tournament is announced just before E3, Mario Rabbids is Switch exclusive game with Nintendo IP and its is announced at E3. Nintendo could anancued those games also in January, but they didn't. But that exception was totally different to any other Nintendo console reveal, thats is clear proof and fact that Nintendo is now managing announcements and releases different. They will have Nintendo Direct and E3 where they will announcing other their games for 2018. Again, its doesnt make any sense to be worried about Switch 2018. lineup in middle of 2017. when we already have 3-5 2018. announcements and when we already saw how they managed 2017. lineup with announcements and releases.
"Game Freaks has begun developing" and "now in development" point to recent events.
In MP4's case your own quote shows that Nintendo wanted to let people know right at the start.
Either it's began recently or not. You can't have it both ways.
"and they showed 2 games that could be relased in second half of 2018. "
This is the part i was talking about. There's nothing pointing at this - other than you wishing/believing.
So, yes, until both games come out in 2018, you were wrong.
The question was not if Nintendo wanted to please fans for not announcing a Switch Pokemon game in the ND. Your argument was that the Spotlight reveal was made because of that.
I don't believe that to be the case; i haven't seen any hint proving you right; i even showed you that Nintendo doesn't work that way (used the FForce backlash to show this).
Those non-revealed games of January were the exception. The same way Mario Tennis for Wii U was revealed at E3 2015 and launched months after.
E3 showed you that they reveal (always have) more than just what's coming in the short term.
I don't know if there's reason to worry, but i do believe there's no reason to say all is fine when they have only announced 3 (confirmed to be) 2018 games.
Yes it can be go in both ways. But have on mind that Reggie and Nintendo were hinting Metroid Prime for quite time now.
Why you ingoring fact they said they "it may not be released in more than in year" for Pokemon. Holiday 2018. is year and half after E3 2017. so defiantly its posible that can be relased in 2018. and that actually even sound like they aiming holiday 2018. release. For Metroid Prime 4, we dont know for how much is development and of course also it could be released in holiday 2018. that again is around 1.5 year after E3 2017. announcement. I can't be wrong with that because I wrote they could be released in second half of 2018. not that they will certainly be released. But you will be wrong if only one is relased in 2018. beacuse you are saying they will not be relased in 2018.
You believe whatever you want, even dispte strong point and facts. Like I wrote, Force backlash doesn't have anything with this situation, what exactly they could said after FForce backlash, certainly they didn't want to say they are working on some "NX" game when "NX" still wasn't revealed, but actualy they did start hinting Metroid Prime after FForce backlash.
Only Mario Tennis!? :D You have plenty of those examples for Wii U and 3DS, SM3DW was 1st time shown at E3 2013. and released in November of same year, Paper Mario: Color Splash was revealed in March 2016. and released in October, Captain Toad was announced at E3 2014. and released in December of same year, TP HD was revealed in November and relesed in March (4 monts later), WW HD was revealed in January event and released in September, Animal Crossing and Mario Tennis were revealed at E3 2015. and were released in November, Kirby and the Rainbow Curse and Mario Party 10 at E3 2014. and they were relased in February and March, Hyrule Warriors was revealed in December and released in September...I will not even bother with 3DS games I will just mentione last example, this 3DS Pokemon was announced in June and it will be released in November, while previous one was announced in February and released in November of same year.
This is clear example how Nintendo is operating in most cases, they reveal and launch game in less than a year and like you can see there are plenty examples where they announced and released game in less than 6 months. Wii U list would have even much more examples if Wii U didnt sell terrible and Nintendo in panic mode announced most of Wii U projects they had in that time in January event just 2 months after Wii U launch. And now with Switch, they are going even for less time between annacument and launch (in most cases), because Switch is selling great and they have steady flow of good games without drouths compared to Wii U. You again fail to see that or from some reason you don't want to see that, but all that is reason why you don't need to be worry (and why most people are not worry), "because in middle of 2017. we have "only" 3 certain games that will be released in 2018", especially if we know that that all big internal projects are in development for Switch (most of 2017. and 2018. 3DS games are done buy external teams outside Nintendo and in most cases they are smaller projects, spinoffs and remasters).
If you want we can bet, I am sure until years end, Nintendo will announced at least around 2-3 more 2018. games, so at years end we will have at least (certain) 5-6 Switch 1st party/exclusives 2018. games. Of Course in January I expecting ND again with some other new anancuments.
