Yeah, that's gotta be Kirby. Mario, Pokemon and Smash Bros are all amongst my favorite game franchises whereas Kirby has always been good but not great. When was the last time a Kirby game got a 90+ on metacritic or sales of over a million on opening week? Pokemon, Smash, and Mario are all a combination of top sellers and some of the best rated games of their respective generations, whereas Kirby has never been truly outstanding, at least not since perhaps Super Star or Canvas Curse. 

Also, does mario include Mario Kart? 



I got it all, baby! 

PS4, Switch, WiiU, XBO, PC
Vita, 3DS, Android

Top 3 this generation: 
Bloodborne, The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Dark Souls III

Fourteen times out of fifteen, physical.



e=mc^2

Gaming on: PS4 Pro, Switch, SNES Mini, Wii U, PC (i5-7400, GTX 1060)

Bye Bye Smash. Not that it isn't fun. It's just not my one of those I cherish a LOT.

Never really liked Smash or Pokemon tbh.

On a separate topic, feeling a little worried about Mortal Kombat 11, specifically that the Switch port could be another WWE 2K18 with a woeful framerate and ugly visuals. A skilled team could produce a good conversion, but companies often tend not to put much effort into the Nintendo version of their games and I just hope MK11 isn't one such slapdash cash-in.

That explains why 2018 was definitely not your year :P

 

And I'm more confident in MK 11 than WWE.  WWE is the lowest rung of the sports games.  It was never gonna get the needed resources.  Also, MK11 is using UE4 and this far, most UE4 conversions have turned out pretty good.  Not 100% obviously,  but a good majority.

Yup, pretty much. XD

And oh, it's UE4? I tried googling it but couldn't see what engine it was made on. You're right, that should help, Ark aside UE4 has a good track record on Switch. (And well, Ark is Ark)  It's just that now that more big games are starting to arrive on Switch it'd be a shame if they just try to cash in on the system's success without bothering to create a quality conversion.

Having watched the footage, it also looks good enough that it'll take actual effort to bring it over to Switch without butchering it. Not undoable by any means, but not the sort of thing where a half-hearted effort will yeild acceptable results.
