As for the bonus question, Nintendo Switch Sports is releasing this month, would you like for Nintendo to create more content akin to what was popular during the Wii era? (Sports Resort, Wii Music, Wii Fit, Wii Play, etc)

Well, at least Feb and March were great.

The only one that really stands out to me is Chrono Cross, mostly because I've never had the chance to play it before. Not sure when I would get around to it, but it sure isn't going to be in the near future considering I literally started playing Elden Ring yesterday.

Yeah it’s kinda rough when half of the games are either remakes or remasters. The rest of the year is looking kinda rough too but then again, I feel like April generally has a lull in release dates and then they start announcing them in may and june

To me it's clearly LEGO Star Wars this month, as it seems like they've changed the normal LEGO formula quite a bit in this game. Second would be Switch Sports, but having to wait until fall for golf knocks it down for me.

Bonus question: while the motion-based Wii games are fun, I only want them back if they can expand or innovate on what was done on the Wii. If it's just a copy of Wii games with HD graphics, then no thanks.

A rather tame month compared to the previous two we got. Voted for Chrono Cross.

Good, a month off where I can catch up on the backlog. Much appreciated, developers of games I'm not presently interested in!

Niceee, we'll be able to finish some games I've started recently and begin Disco Elysium ^^

Though, I am rather excited to play the House of the Dead Remake. If it's good, a remake of the iconic 2nd game would be a no brainer

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (Switch). No joking, I screamed like a little girl when I saw that in the Direct. My favourite Star Wars videogame ever. So many good memories of playing it on the Wii... It really made you feel like you were an almighty Sith Lord/Jedi. I hope we get the PSP Story Missions too. Then it would be the absolute definitive version of The Force Unleashed.

LEGO Star Wars... I don't know. It looks amazing and it is clear that a lot of love and care for the franchise went into it. But I never played a LEGO game in my life and I don't know if gameplay will be to simplified for my tastes. Wish there was a demo.

Chrono Cross I'll wait for the eventual physical release here on Europe. People are getting crazy pre ordering the asian version for an exaggerated price. I bet we'll be able to find it for 30 dolars or so in 6 months-1 year.

Switch Sports... I may get it at some point in the very distant future. I'm very interested, but I don't have time for a game that requires me to be stationary at home right now.

13 Sentinels, already have it on PS4. Not double dipping.

Lego Star Wars by far. I very rarely preorder games physically or digitally. Preordered this one physically after the release date was finally locked in. Gonna play it on PS4 and hope the load times are alright. The game will run better on PS5, but I don't feel like waiting for a PS5 to play it.

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)
