EA and Nintendo has some type of hissy fit before the Wii U was launch in 2012. EA has yet to get over whatever caused this disagreement. Its kind of pathetic at this point.

Didn't E.A change management a few times since then, and thus the people from that time should be gone...particularly the ones on the atmost top?



The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?

Well, its kind of expected to MS to have one or two ports ready for the Switch.

I mean, its weird as hell, but its the world we live in.

If nothing else there is that new Minecraft game, they also mention Ubisoft , Bethesda and Square Enix so I don't think people should get their hopes up too much.



Well, they do understand that the Switch has a potential customer base that's probably more interested in some of their IP's than even their own so that's fair of them, I guess.

People need to stop and think before bashing on EA (I know it's fun guys, and in most cases they deserve it) Porting EA's biggest franchises into a Switch would require much more resources and money than porting a game like Minecraft, that can run on a toaster.

Companies like Bethesda and Netherrealm are supporting the Switch. It wouldn't take that much effort to at least get Madden on the system.

EA just flat out blows dead rats. I wish the NFL and FIFA would open up their licensing to other publishers and allow competition from companies like 2K and Konami. That's the reason why EA gets away with all of its BS.

Yeah, they deserve the bashing

^ I wonder what EA will say when Fifa20 on Switch inevitably bombs while the previous two did good. I bet they won’t have a clue why that happened and blame it on Nintendo fans not buying 3rd party games.



What's this obsession of Nintendo fans with EA? Last time I checked they were the worst thing that ever happened to gaming and Nintendo fans look at it and say: "Damn, I wish worst thing that ever happened to gaming senpai would notice me".



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

A new game is unlikely to be announced. A character for Smash or the confirmation of a port (such as the first Ori game) are more probable options, especially the latter.

True. Maybe Battletoads, but that did not look very good unfortunately.

Unfortunate design choices.  I don't know why animation designers create such ugly characters lacking appeal these days, but I know I don't want any part of them.

I'm thinking there's more to it than that. Miyamoto was reportedly going to show up at the Microsoft conference, but there were flight issues and that's why it was shorter than planned. I highly doubt he would go through the trouble of showing up if it were were a port.
