I am not surprised to see good news here, and I expect their to be more good news as more reports are released. COVID may have been bad for a lot of industries, but it was a huge boon for video games.



To Japanese development industry: "Ready to Switch?"



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

But but but *insert random reason why third parties can't have sales on Switch*



Gameplay > Graphics

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

The situation is clearly divided.

Koei Tecmo and Bandai Namco have adjusted by contract development of Nintendo's games. Marvelous succeed to grab the perfect situation for their main franchises. On the other hand, Sega has missed the timing to fit the market...
