Well, i dont see any big game comming for 2018.

If PkmN and metroid are comming 2018 ok. But these 2 games alone will not sell the system. I really hope for bluckbuster support and not only indie titles when comes to 3rd party titles.

I don’t know, it’s been selling pretty good all year with little more than Zelda and a port of Mario kart 8. Once Mario hits next week, that’ll easily carry it for months like Zelda has done. Not sure if next year, but I know it has new entries coming for yoshi, kirby and more.

Sorry I haven't helped you out much today. This site has been playing up for me and I've been having to write stuff several times to get it posted. I just didn't want to go through all of the update only to find it didn't post for the 6th time.

Don't worry about it! I really don't mind doing these updates.

Well, as PS fans love to talk about, it's not just the big games but the steady flow of mid tier releases.  Yeah, the biggest games have been Zelda, Mario Kart, and Splatoon, but the mid tier releases of Pokken, Arms, Fire Emblem Warriors, etc. have all helped maintain momentum.  Especially since Nintendo has promoted them all around their releases.  

2018, the Switch has Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes, Kirby Star Allies, Yoshi, Fire Emblem, Octopath Traveler, and Shin Megami Tensei V (may not be an exclusive).   Pokemon may make it but it's hard to say, Nintendo is playing with a lot of cards close to the chest right now.

Well it’s true. A steady flow of games regardless of budget means there’s more incentive to buy your product. I primarily buy PlayStation products as they have the sort of games I enjoy. From platformers like ratchet to RPGs like dragon quest. Not big on Xbox as not much of a shooter fan but I do love me some Nintendo too. 

 

So yes, I see Nintendo having a great 2018. Huge congrats to them on the switch. 



Ass Creed making moves

interested to see how it does critically and commercially after the gap year and supposedly adding better combat and more RPG elements
