My theory is they had one group working on closing out X's development while another was making headway on 2's. Not sure if that will be enough for 2 to hit 2017, but could explain it being at a nice point in development. It's realy the only game I am worried about missing the year, everything else looks to hit it comfortably I think.
Yeah, word is that Mario Odyssey is already nearly done, and with Splatoon aiming for a midyear release, it seems unlikely either will be pushed back to next year. XB2 on the other hand seems a much more complex game than either, and thus a likely candidate.
After all, this is Nintendo we're talking about, the day they stop delaying key games is the day it snows in hell. XD
Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)
