I was wondering how much time Nintendo allocates to the games on the Switch in their presentations. Therefore I decided to create a thread about it.
I will look at Nintendo exclusive games (including its DLC). When a game got ported from Wii U (i.e. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe) I only count the time that the port was presented and not the version on the original system. I only exclude The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild from that rule since it got released simultaneously on the Switch and the Wii U.
After every Nintendo Direct or the main e3 presentations I will update the numbers. I won’t include Nintendo Treehouse (I consider Nintendos e3 presentation in 2016 a Treehouse).
To make things easier I will count every started minute as a whole one.
To clarify how I calculate my numbers I will make an example:
Arms was presented on following days for following minutes:
- January 12, 2017 for 6 minutes
- April 12, 2017 for 8 minutes
- May 17, 2017 for 21 minutes
- September 13, 2017 for 1 minute
- March 8, 2018 for 2 minutes
Feel free to make any suggestion.
