I suppose that previous GC Zelda being delayed and then launching with a Wii version didnt happen either.

 

GC was a flop, 3DS is not. This isn't the Wii U we're talking about here. The installbase of the 3DS is big enough for Pokemon to sell at it's potential, so there'e no reason for extreme measures. Plus if Sun/Moon was also for NX, they wouldn't have announced it before the NX itself is revealed. But yeah fine, it isn't 100% confirmed, that wont be until the NX reveal, but it's a very safe bet it'll be 3DS only.



Around the Network

I think you definitely see 3D Mario and Retro's game if they're ready. They should be close and they have surely been held over for NX. Zelda U definitely gets a port and possibly Smash. I hope/expect a new IP that shows off whatever is apparently unique about the system. Beyond that I expect a hard push to get third party content.

Splatoon 2 and Kart NX I would expect to come a little later.



Pokemon Arena Smash. Squidshoot 2: Splattin' In Yer 'Oon. Ultra Mario Bros. Warioware: Not Lame Like Game & Wario.

and...

Driftburger 4: Race n' Bake



Legend of Zelda
Pikmin 4
Mario release
Retro Studios

These 4 are pretty much locks when it comes to games in the launch window

Wont be guessing on any other games at this point but hoping for a few more games ofc.

But I really do not see how anyone could think it is going to be released this year.

Wii U was announced a year and a half before it was released......

Wii was announced over a year and a half before release......

PS2 was announced 1.5 years before launch

PS3 was announced 1.5 years before launch

PS4 was announced 9 months before launch



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Zelda, 2 Ubi generic ports, and some Mario offshoot. Maybe a NX version of the Starfox game.  Minimal 3rd party support because devs JUST got their kits in November. Any original game would take over a year to release. (Which is why I strongly believe in a 2017 release date for the NX)

That's comapring oranges and anvils. A company's business plan is rarely influenced by another's, especially with the consistency of Nintendo.

U missed the point, I'm saying history doesn't always repeat itself.

It's not about Pokemon selling at its potential. Its about making the NX a lot more attractive asap in it's lifetime.

Likewise it's not an extreme measure either offering the game on the cheaper 3DS while similtaneously offering it for the more expensive NX.

And I would argue that the announcement for now for 3DS is due in part to keep the 3DS going, sales wise, until the NX reveal (whereby 3DS sales will most likely begin to dip quite noticeably) and because there are other promotions taking place with Pokemon Sun/ Moon (like the upcoming movie reveal) which they need to work alongside. NX is just not ready to be announced now.

I could be wrong. But I am just being honest about what I feel Nintendo will do: anything released for 3DS/ WiiU around the time of NX is going to be on NX too.

this.  Add also Dragon Quest XI. :)

You guys forgot about VII remake

There´s no chance at all of the game being released this year.
