What would you like to see in the new Metroid or Pokemon title?
Furthermore, hugely popular games such as Rocket League, Elder Scrolls: Skyrim and Federation Internationale de Football Association 18 are set to appear on the Switch too, boosting the appeal of the console even further. Although Pokemon has appeared numerous times on home consoles in the form of spin-offs, this will mark the first time for a core entry to the series. In December, Nintendo reported overall Wii U sales of 13.56 million, a drop in the bucket compared to what the Wii achieved. After the Wii U flopped, Nintendo should be humbled and willing to reach out.
What we expect is that for the Nintendo 3DS family of devices, the appeal is a thousand different games, a wide range of different experiences, a wide range of different formats, whether it's the New 2DS XL or whether they brought a new 3DS a year ago or whether they buy a New 3DS XL. "It killed our ability to install on the hardware and it killed our momentum. And the early tentpoles are definitely leveraging our most popular IPs". However, according to Polygon, Nintendo recently revised that target with an aim to have the beefed up online service available to consumers in 2018. And just as expected, Wii U ports are also making their way on Switch, starting with the overwhelmingly successful Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and the upcoming Pokken Tournament DX.
The idea of having someone control Cappy exclusively in Super Mario Odyssey sounds a bit. not great, actually. Following in the footsteps of last year's Breath of the Wild-themed exhibit, Nintendo has opted for a re-creation of New Donk City - the NY knockoff featured in Super Mario Odyssey. Voice chat is part of the Switch app that also manages the multiplayer games.
"As we were proceeding along development, there were things we wanted to do with Nintendo Switch online that extended the development time". It's also a game that supports cross-platform multiplayer, meaning you can play against Xbox One and PC owners (but not PS4 because for some reason Sony said no), which is a sign of Nintendo being super open to this idea for future cross-platform multiplayer games - and that's incredibly significant.
