I missed the QuickRick alt? Goddamnit.
Anyway, I don't think we shall see another Vita. It makes me wonder though, if the PS5 isn't as successful in Japan. How will that affect it's 3rd party support. I wonder how much of their relations are based on loyalty or just making profit.
PS5 will still get plenty of big games in Japan; some they'll money-hat, others will be shared with Switch, and yet others will be made for PS5 instead of Switch by devs who'll prioritize eye candy over being financially sensible.
Nintendo's been a handheld company since GBA. Their strength, soul and success are on handheld only. Leaving the console market was a brilliant decision.
Not strictly true, the Wii was a success.
Whatever other reasons, Switch got a lot of Wii U content early on and that what made Switch sell so much early on. Nintendo almost used every big franchise they have on the first 12 months. I reckon it's unprecedented.
Splatoon 2 wasn't a Wii U game, nor was Odyssey. As for using "almost every big franchise in the first 12 months" where was Pokemon, Animal Crossing, 2D Mario, Smash Bros, Donkey Kong, Mario Party, etc?
