Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo intends to maintain a steady stream of releases for Switch

Really hope so.
Although this year will be hard to beat (mario, zelda, mario kart, splatoon).

Pikmin 4

TP

Tokyo Mirage Sessions Remaster

Bayonetta 1 + 2

The Wonderful 101 Remaster

Take MGS V off that list and you have a very plausible bet.

Nintendo seems quite aware of how that move could backfire on them in a public relations sense.

 

Where are you getting this from? I'm constantly seeing people begging for Smash, and while that's probably just the hardcore minority, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is one of the best selling Switch games despite being an enhanced port that some said no one would want. While I agree the Switch doesn't need a Smash 4 remaster, I don't see how releasing it would hurt more than help, and yeah I wont deny that I want it too. :P

Also Fire Emblem is bigger than Kirby n Yoshi only by a couple hundred thousand (based on sales of their recent games) so I would still put them in the same sales tier of 1-2 million, though I do believe FE Switch has potential to take the series even higher if it's done excellently.



well,they only have one console to work now,this should be expected.And yes,koizumi,you guys do have a number of ips left,so how about a new wave race and a f-zero huh?



Remakes: as long as it's just a coupke per year, with 8-10 new games, no biggie. with this more aggressive release schedule, why nit smash 4 in 2018 and 5 in 2019?
Unannounced games? How about DK, Paper Mario or Fire Emblem? i want to see a new IP, too

I used to get excited at the sight of these topics. Now I read them and get disgusted, frustrated, and angry. What happened?

Smash 4? Why not a new Smash? Why do people want remakes? Where is the community going?

It's the fastest route to getting Smash Bros. on the Switch and Smash 4 is already *ahem* smashing with content and incredible fanfare that would make any gamer wet him/herself. 
The community generally feels that Smash Wii U in particular had its legs cut short, and find it quite a shame since it's nearly unanimously agreed that out of the two versions, the Wii U one is the superior, definitive verison (though Smash 3DS has its' pros as well). 

Meanwhile, a brand new Smash Bros. game from scratch would be at least 3-4 years of development and resources if they started today, that puts Smash 5 at around 2020/2021, and I don't think the community doesn't want to wait that long for a new Smash Bros. on the Switch. At that point, Switch 2 would be looming so, Nintendo might even push it even further back to meet the launch of that system.
Additionally, developing and directing Smash 4 took a huge toll on Sakurai, the man was in a sling, working with one arm trying to develop the game. So it's understandable if he's quite burned out and not particularly eager to get back on the helm for a new Smash Bros. just yet. 

Thus, porting the latest version that everyone still clearly cares about makes the most logical and efficient sense. It clearly worked with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.  So 

Smash 4 is on Wii U and 3DS. It is literally on both a home console and a handheld already. Asking for it a third time is just stupid. If there were so many good Wii U titles worth porting, the why the fuck wouldn't people just buy a Wii U? Ughhhhh.

Regardless, I do not want two Smash titles on one console just as I do not want two Mario Kart titles on one console. One title is enough to last four or five years - a generation. Smash 4 is finished at this point. I do not want one out tomorrow, I already have one to play right now. Get me a new one with that Smash quality. I can wait and so can you.

A step down from this year is hardly unworkable as long as they don't step down to a point the years big holiday release is a HD version of Kirby's Air Ride. 



The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?

I also want to add that people have gone from complaining that every game is too similar to asking for the same game three times in one generation. My how times have changed.

Not a single new third party game? Only ports of games already released?



Just as i thought, they were never going to leave luck to heaven, i wouldn't be surprised if they always planned a stream of steady games deep into 2018, they wanted to make sure this thing would attract consumers as well as third parties.

Wouldn't it make more sense to release melee on VC first, then release a full-fledged smash 5? (crash bandicoot, elma from XCX, and of course, arms characters)
