Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Staring into the abyss of a world where Nintendo has no games scheduled for release. Edit: The Time of Darkness Has Arrived

They can't have a direct if they don't have any games to announce. They unfortunately scrapped a ton of projects to start from scratch.

Got a source for that?

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Care to explain this baseless statement ?

the only example i know of is metroid prime 4. are there any others?



Imagine if Animal Crossing: New Horizons released in November or December of 2019. We'd have virtually no first-party support until at least the summer. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if we only end up getting a paltry 4 new first-party games from Nintendo this year (and that includes Animal Crossing). That would be really sucky, but it's looking possible.

I hope in the last years of the Switch and during the lifespan of its successor we finally reap the rewards of Nintendo releasing to one hybrid platfrom. Because we're still not there yet.



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

Switch: 144 million (was 73, then 96, then 113 million, then 125 million)

PS5: 105 million Xbox Series S/X: 60 million

PS4: 120 mil (was 100 then 130 million, then 122 million) Xbox One: 51 mil (was 50 then 55 mil)

3DS: 75.5 mil (was 73, then 77 million)

It's shocking that no direct was announced for tomorrow :O
Really Nintendo doesn't have any new game to show us for the rest of the year?!?

They must have something in the works for release later this year. They combined their console and handheld developers all onto one platform. You'd think they would be able to get more games out.

In the wilderness we go alone with our new knowledge and strength.

It’s official, Nintendo has NO new games for the year. Wrap it up



I'm sure we'll get a Direct soon.
