Poll Is it clear by now that Nintendo is saving their heavy hitters for Switch 2? (71 votes)

Yep 38%
Nah 62%

I just watched the Direct, and when it came time to talk about Breath of the Wild 2, there was no info at all. Instead we got a Skyword Sword HD announcement, which I'll get because I never played the original (I'm also getting Ninja Gaiden collection as well). But anyway, we're hitting the four year mark, and no talk about Breath of the Wild 2, no Bayonetta 3, no Metroid, and the show ended with Splatoon 3, which is slated to come in 2022. It seems to me that Nintendo is planning for the next system. Thoughts, SW? Agree or disagree?

So no effort went into RDR2 then.

I didn't say that, I said no effort is going into output of new products because they're soaking up money from the old ones. They, like Nintendo have no excuse to not have a steady stream of content with the money they make.

Fair point, my mistake.

Nah, There is going to be no Switch 2 for a while yet. Nintendo is still doing well with the Switch and Switch Lite and they don't wanna kill the system just yet. WE are only just begining to see what the current switch is capable of.

Why would they release a Switch 2 when the Switch is at the height of its popularity?

It's not like the Playstation and Xbox where they need to keep up with more powerful hardware.

Next month is four years, so yea, but I think they may keep supporting it even when the Switch 2 comes around.

2023.

By then, Switch sales will slow down and Bayo3, Metroid4 and BOTW2 will be done/near done.

You have a ps5 to keep you busy. Now imagine someone who has nothing else but the switch as their main system. For the next two plus years you'll have nothing else but hd ports and emulators.

You'd be surprised. Many may own another system, but Switch is their fav and they use it as their main platform. On SW alone there's plenty of people like that. Sheep might not be as extinc as we originally thought. They're just hiding and in most cases don't want to let people know that they use their Switch as their primary system because its too damn easy to ridicule them.

BOTW2 this year. Metroid in 2022.

I'm on the hype train for E3, see you all in 4 months.

More like some hd ports and few emulators in 2021 and guess what's coming next year? The same thing.

I guess you missed the part where the Direct was focused on the first half of the year. Plus it takes time to make games. E3 direct should be good, if not then 2021 is gonna be a major bust.

That's what I've been thinking lately. Nintendo may be looking to replicate the success of the original Switch by releasing a new Zelda beside it. If they threw in Bayonetta 3 and Metroid Prime 4, that'd just sweeten the deal. A more realistic scenario is that they're just going to ride the Switch until it's not selling well enough for them and place said games in certain spots to draw out their release lineup.

Been saying this for a year now. Why bother putting effort into something that has no competition and is on an auto pilot trajectory that prints them money? And because most sheep are a bunch of apologists, nobody calls them out enough on their complete lack of support. Instead, every single new lazy af hd port/emulator is announced, you see the usual "i haven't played the game when it was originally released because i didn't own X system so i am so glad its coming". These people do not ask for improvements of said re-releases. These people do not ask for these zero effort titles to be cheap. Nah, they just buy whatever Nintendo gives them no matter what. And this is why a "SHEEP" fits them so nicely.

Enjoy your $60 emulators until the next generation. Your next two to three years will be real spicy.

I personally would like improved versions of old games at the very least. Like an HD Mario 64 Remake with Mario Odyssey graphics. Or Legend of Zelda Ocarina of time being a full HD Remake from the ground up.

Of course you would, like every sane person. But why bother when with no effort put into the port, they're still printing mountains of cash? They have no incentive to invest resources.

The only people who would have the Switch as their only system are mid-core and casual gamers. They could care less about a lack of games coming out like that. It's easy to think that certain people want a lot of something because you're a fanatic about it. Like some people are fanatical about sports. I'll watch a few sports like Gymnastics, Track and Field, Ice Skating, when I notice it. Those sports look interesting, and I truly enjoy watching them. Yet, I'm not going to go out of my way to look up when they come on, keep up with teams, etc. My dad is an avid sports watcher though, and I remember him talking to his friends and complaining "after this championship is over, it's going to be a very boring time for sports until the Olympics get here." I personally didn't care because I'm not a sports fan. *shrugs* Like in most multiplayer games, I get annoyed when my team isn't pulling their weight, because I'm a competitive player. I keep up with meta, balance changes, weapon changes, etc. Though I also have to remember that some people are casual fans that only load it up for a couple of games with their friends on the weekend, while drinking mountain dew and eating a bag of chips.

I personally use Nintendo systems as my primary, while using the PS4 for the occasional exclusive and third party games. During my break from Nintendo systems, I'm on third party multiplayer games obsessing about the meta and competitive aspects.

There's rumors of a Switch Pro being releasing this holiday, so expect the Switch to continue through most of this generation cycle if true.
