What if MK9 is for Nintendo's still unannounced 3DS successor??

The unannounced 3ds successor will be  or has to be a switch revision, a new handheld console with its own game library would be an asinine move by Nintendo for obvious reasons , so still MK9 better on switch successor.

americas out shipping europe and ROTW just shows how weak switch is doing there. hope we get sales through numbers. probably around 15.5 million.

Oh, the guy who has nothing positive to say about Nintendo! Seriously, why are you doing this? I don't like Sony but you will not see me in this forum in threads about Sony saying only negative things about them.

I didn't see it mentioned in this thread, but Nintendo forecasts 20m for Switch and 4m for 3DS in the fiscal year ending March 2019.

Pokemon might help dramatically to reach that number, but honestly 20 million does seem a lot. ALSO DAMN 3DS, you still selling!

Well, they sold nearly 3M with just Bayonetta and then Kirby just before the end of the quarter as it's headliners for the quarter. Next quarters are way more stocked than that, so sales should go up over the course of the next months. And then there's the behemoth Smash looming for the holiday season plus what will be announced at E3. And Fire Emblem, which got announced last year already,  could very much boost sales too, especially in Japan.

Puts it marginally ahead of the 3DS in terms of shipment, performance isn't bad ...

Funny how everyone writes off the posibility of an Arms sequel because it hasn't sold 3 to 5 million.  Xenoblade 1 and X never broke 1mil but 2 was made AND given the biggest marketing push of them all and that's a much more costly series than Arms.  Arms has already outsold the highest selling Pikmin entries and that series is still chugging along.  Nintendo has demonstrated time and time and time again that they are completely comfortable with giving ideas more than one shot if they show potential.  And they are also happy to keep mid tier franchises going.  I would be surprised if Arms doesn't get a follow up.

The difference here is, Xenoblade is Monolith's main series. That has always been their jam, that's what they are good at.

The only reason Pikmin gets sequels is because that franchise is Shigeru Miyomoto's baby.

I'm not suggesting ARMS was a failure. Infact, I admit that it did quite well for what it was. It probably earned more profit's than Xenoblade 2, as you suggested. However, if you're Nintendo, do you send the Kosuke Yabuki team to.....

a) Make Mariokart 9. A game that is basically guaranteed to sell at least 10 million units on Switch (probably much more than that)

b) sequel to ARMS, something that may not even hit 2 million (first game only sold as well as it did because next to nothing on the switch when the game launched. Now, that advantage will also be gone).

You could put another EPD team on it, sure. But what team? Take the koizumi team off 3D Mario? Take the Aonuma team off Zelda? Take Nogami team off Splatoon? Heck no, to all of these. The only one that would do it is 1,2 Switch/Labo team.

 

This logic would lead to no new games at all and only more Mario Karts. This logic wouldn't even allow ARMS to be developed at all but another Nintendogs instead because those games are also made by the Mario Kart team. Cost of opportunity may be a nice catch phrase but they are not the single reason for why a game is made. The underlying situation is to be regarded holistically.
