Lazy, but not rushed at all. Rumours about it started early March, it was supposed to be announced in the E3

I don't think Nintendo needs another big Holiday Title this year, the Switch is barely able to meet demand rn and to release another major game when demand can't be meant would just canabilize their sales. It's better to release their more major games when demand isn't as high.



2020 NSW vs. VGC 07/08/09 NDS & 08/09 Wii



Looks like NSW Q3 sell-through will be 5.5-5.8M after the next two weeks, before we get any hard shipment data from Nintendo. I'd wager ROTW/Europe will be higher than tracked and we end up at 6-6.3M sell-through and >7M shipped for the quarter (1M inventory + in-transit).

Maybe not, but a second big holiday title would be nice.

They have two; Mario Kart Live and Hyrule Warriors Age of Calamity.

Neither may be Pokemon or Smash type "big" but I think they're both noteworthy all the same. If you want something else to play on Switch these holidays there's always Immortals Fenyx Rising.



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