Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo Switch’s next evergreen/blue ocean title(s)

So we got Zelda BOTW, Mario Kart 8, Super Mario O. and Splatoon 2 seemingly selling till the end of time.

But ever since SMO we didn’t get another such title for the Switch.

When and Who do you think will be the next Switch’s evergreen title?

Fairly easy answer. Smash.

Super Mario Party and Smash

Pokemon Let’s Go....anybody?

2d Mario the rumours are true

Kirby will continue to sell for a long time, even if not in the same pace as others.

But the obvious answer is Smash.

My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

It's already got an expiration date thanks to the mainline game coming out next year.

I don't see it or Mario Party being fixtures on the weekly sales chart for over a year like those other four games.  Not that they won't do fine.

You mean the next after Smash? Pokémon 8th generation.

Kirby will only last a year in the charts, not bad, but not evergreen. Super Mario Party will be the same way. Both will do respectable numbers for their franchises. People I think undercount Pokemon Let's Go a bit, but I agree that being a semi-spinoff reboot of Gen 1 released a year before Pokemon gets its first mainline (sort of) home console entry means that its legs will be cut short. Smash will sell until the next Nintendo console releases and maybe even beyond that, so it's the next evergreen game. Beyond that, 2D Mario might happen, but a NSMB port won't do the trick unless it ports every NSMB game together. Animal Crossing would almost certainly do the trick, seeing as New Leaf is STILL selling and appearing in charts to this day. Beyond that, a new Mario Kart, an Odyssey or BotW sequel, or a new IP altogether are Nintendo's best bets for further evergreens unless Metroid Prime takes off like it fucking deserves to never has before.

If by blue ocean ypu mean a title that tries to appeal to the highest amount of people possible, 2D Mario would be fairly safe. Mario Maker would follow suit. Another Pokemon spinoff might be coming too (we've had surprisingly little Pokemon on the Switch).

You know it deserves the GOTY.
