Yeah I suspect Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury was supposed to be 2020, and I read somewhere that Monster Hunter Rise was too.

I mean, I wonder if 2022 games like Sparks of Hope, Splatoon 3, or Project Triangle Strategy were originally targeting this year.

Can't really say, we don't have much of a window for these games other than the year stated for now. Otherwise, Splatoon 3 will remain in that Spring/Summer release spot as usual.

Given their predecessors released in 2017 and they're being shown with gameplay this far out, I strongly suspect Sparks of Hope and Splatoon 3 were initially targeted for this year.

Still, this way at least helps pace out Switch's software schedule. I just hope we're not headed for a drought over the next 6 months.



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

- Dev team three times bigger than it was for Kingdom Battle

- No limits on team composition this time, you can go all Rabbids or none for example

- Game is not open world but exploration is less linear

I really hope they dont go to far away from the battlesystem the first one had



If it isn't turnbased it isn't worth playing   (mostly)

And shepherds we shall be,

For Thee, my Lord, for Thee. Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy command. So we shall flow a river forth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it ever be. In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritūs Sancti. -----The Boondock Saints

Great, it was a bit annoying in the first game.



Hearing that the dev team is three times bigger this time around really shows how serious they are about investing in this. It definitely doesn't feel like a perfunctory or lazy sequel just trying to capitalize on the first game's success.

The first game apparently had a team of 100 so that would mean roughly 300 people working on Sparks of Hope.
