TWEWY Neo is also announced for PS4. Another Nintendo exclusive third party game now making its way over to Playstation. Nintendo has now lost:

- MH

- DQ

- DQ (spinoff)

- KH (spinoff)

- RER

- AA

- YW

- TWEWY

- Harvest Moon

Only notable third party exclusives are OT, BD, SMT and MHR+S. Makes sense why Nintendo are paying publishers to have their AA games exclusive to SW.

Lets be honest here, the Switch version is gonna outsell the Playstation version by a good margin considering the history of the franchise and how JRPG's been performing on Switch especially in the last year or two.

Games going PS4/Switch multiplat has benefit the Switch so much more than the other way around. I doubt Nintendo loses sleep over "losing" exclusives when they still get the game anyway.

For sure, PS4 is dead in the water now. 3rd parties have much more chance for spotlight by releasing on PS5/ Switch.

And when it comes to Japan though, that is assuming that PS5 doesn't continue the decline Playstation has been facing in Japan. Though it should get sequels to some of the big heavy hitters on the PS4 sooner, since it looks like FFXVI could release as early as late 2021 and if those documents from the Capcom aren't outdated, the follow up to Monster Hunter World is 2023. Both of those have a good chance of not hitting Switch, but for another big sequel to a PS4 game, DQXII. I think is that gonna be multiplat with Switch and PS5 with the former being the lead platform for the game and Nintendo definitely more likely to help market then Sony.

Yeah there's been no indication so far that PS5 is going to do anything to buck Switch's brutal dominance in Japan.
PS4 had mainline MH and DQ and it still got beaten with ease. Multiplat is just the way almost everything is trending these days.



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