They do have 2 teams working on Zelda and we're probably going get a top down game sooner rather than later but expecting Nintendo to pump out AAA Zelda's every 2 years is just dumb especially if you expect the same quality as BotW. It would limit creativity and has the potential to impact quality. 

I hope we get a top down one soon albw was amazing on 3ds. I dont expect a 3D zelda every year. I just didnt expect them to waste the BotW engine so yeah i did expect something to be coming out after a couple of years. Fuck waiting 6 years again ill just ditch nintendo not worth wasting the money just to play one Zelda game per gen.

The Zelda games would not be the quaility they are now if they came out like you wished them too

It hasn't even been 2 years. Even during the N64 era with way lower production values making Majora's mask in 2 years was pushing it 

Dude its not 'pushing it' and its 2 years in march since release, but BotW was ready before than, they just needed it for switch release. If ubisoft can make the absolutely stella Black flag one year after AC3 and odeysey and Origins almost back to back both of which are highly praised then why us it pushing it for nintendo unless they have a problem getting software out? Oh wait that sounds familiar hello 2012,12,14,15,16 and 18. 2017 was a great year for Nintendo but 2018 was meh.

 

 

No offence but look at the inconsistent quality of the AC games, BF came after the disastrous AC3 not to mention as an open world game BOTW is very different to AC in approach and what the player does. AC is the typical open world template approach while BOTW is it's own approach utilizing full absolute freedom in what the player chooses to do allowing a structure of the players like so as a result BOTW's approach like GTA and RDR requires a more hand crafted approach in its world building and design which takes far more time compared to AC which just lifts the same type of structure and tasks from prior games and applies it to a new map this why AC comes out so frequently.

You do realize you're talking about assassin's Creed right? A series that includes classics like ac3 and unity. Zelda is way more comparable to rockstar series. Sony 1st parties are also pretty comparable, if we get horizon 2 before 2021 I'd be shocked 



On average, how many days in advanced does Nintendo announce a Direct before it happens?

Back in those days Ubisoft typically had 3 different AC teams releasing in a rotation, much like the 3 Call of Duty studios (Treyarch, Sledgehammer, and Infinity Ward) do today. That way Ubisoft could release yearly AC games while each game still received 3 years of development. I can't see Nintendo doing the same and having 3 AAA 3D Zelda teams anytime soon, or even 2 AAA 3D Zelda teams anytime soon, because Nintendo doesn't want to oversaturate the market. We might get a new 2D Zelda soon, but I wouldn't expect the next 3D Zelda for at least a few more years if I were you.

That's not exactly true, huge boost in sales Switch recived because launch of Pokemon Lets Go and Smash Bros Ultimate, last month we had NSMBU DX, next month we have Yoshi and next week we are getting Direct with new release dates. Wii died after great fly because it had tons of casuals that left platform after all that motion controls, Wii Sports, Fit...worn off, while on other hand Switch from start is selling to much more core games oriented market.

You are right that that Switch lineup (or for any platform) cant fulfill everyone's taste, but someone can say same thing even for PS4, for isntance, PS4 dont have not much after Days Gone launch, on other hand it seems that Switch will have very packed year when comes to Nintendo games and exclusives and some interesting 3rd party games.

Here is just one link showing 31 games which may be interesting and seem to cater to a wide audience

https://au.ign.com/articles/2019/01/04/31-big-playstation-games-coming-in-2019

Throw in the sports games and then you have a lot to pick from.

 

Yes Nintendo have a bit to show, but I do not care for half of it. For me I have never been into animal crossing, yoshi, Pokemon let's go I played on mobile and got bored. Smash is fun but not as fun as MK or KI. This is just my personal taste.

So fro my perspective the Switch is hitting a dry spell compared to my tastes on PS4. The only way to fix that is to A) hire/buy more studios to make the genres the switch lacks, or B) finally find a way to get more mainstream 3rd party support.

I dont think all games mentioned from there are big (for instance Trials Rising, and few I didnt even hear about), saying that, I could easily make similar list for Switch of around "30  big" games that are coming to Switch in 2019. even plenty of 2019. Switch games yet need to be announced.

 

Thats my point, personal preferences are totally different thing than an accurate picture of market, I get when you say that you specifically don't have much to play on Switch, I just saying that generally speaking situation is quite different.

Fine. Dont release Zelda bi-yearly but fuck me release some games pleeeease. If they dont want current 3rd party games being released because they release crap hardware specs then atleast start releasing games man. Why dont they branch out abit, create some more western studios like Ninja theory, what was it?? 13 blokes (and gals) to make hellblade in 2years for 10 million. Its acheivable, its being avhieved time and time again by western studios.

Nintendo works on several Zelda games in same time, for isntance they worked on Zelda ALBW, Zelda WW HD, Zelda MM, Zelda TP HD, Zelda BotW and even spinoffs like Triforce Heroes and Hyrule Warriors, in same time, difference is that now they will work on Zelda games just for one platform. Just for record, new 3D Zelda (same like new 3D Mario) are rumored for 2020. release, Zelda BotW was finish at end of 2016. so with 2020. release we talking about 3-4 years of development, and its expected that Nintendo will reuse engine and some assets from BotW and that will save quite of development time.

Zelda is in no way comparable to Rockstar games lol. Now dont get me wrong zelda is my favourite games series ever, but come on? Just the voice acting alone and the motion capture techniques would take ages to create. Not to mention the amount of actual pixels in something like RDR2 and graphical effects. The physics system was something else though in BotW i guess alot of their time was spent there, cos it certainly wasnt spend on story telling, cutscenes or voice acting that much is for certain.

I tend to agree with you that Nintendo needs more 1st/2nd party games to compensate for their weak 3rd party support due to always releasing low spec systems. I only like 4 Nintendo 1st/2nd party series currently personally; Pokemon, Fire Emblem, Fatal Frame, and Smash Bros, and as such I haven't felt the need to buy a Switch as of yet and decided to hold out for a potential cheaper Switch Mini model. If we do get a Switch Mini this year as well as Fire Emblem: Three Houses and Pokemon Gen 8 I will probably buy a Switch this year, but I would sure like to see more exclusives that interest me besides Pokemon Gen 8, Pokemon Let's Go, Fire Emblem: 3 Houses, Smash Bros Ultimate, and Pokken DX. I'm still hoping to see Fatal Frame 5 and Tokyo Mirage Sessions # Fire Emblem ports on Switch eventually, but what Nintendo really needs to win me over in a big way is a big new AAA mature (or at least teen rated) IP that is cool.
