I'd actually be really interested to see what the Nintendo designers could do with all of the 3D World parts we got for SMM2

3D World was a super average game and I have no desire to play again really. Would not be surprised if Bowser's Fury is a minigame collection/match 3 puzzler.

I hope they're not done with directs, but either way I'm very curious to see what Nintendo are working on. Looking at the coming soon section on eshop theres not many big confirmed releases aside from Mario 3D World (I know Metroid 4, botw2 and Bayonetta 3 may come out this year, but none these have been confirmed as so). I'm opimistic though, maybe they'll announce big titles a few weeks from release (Paper Mario and Hyrule style) and perhaps there was surprises that would have come out last year but were delayed due to Covid and we'll get to see them this year. Come on F-Zero and Starfox :wub:

Wrestling Empire has launched on Switch. Having watched a few vids, I'm wondering if it could be in the "it's so bad it's good" category. It looks genuinely funny :-).

The initial reveal trailer made too much of a deal out of Bowser's Fury for it to just be an easy mode, it just wouldn't make sense.









That's totally what it's going to be isn't it? :fp:

Maybe Bowser's Fury is that they've canonized Bowsette?

Nintendo has - very deservedly, IMHO - gained lots of praise for the launch of the Switch and the huge range of indie games it has attracted to the system.

I do wonder, though, if some goodwill is being eroded by the lack of original first-party titles on the system. I enjoy checking out Nintendo Life website for Switch news and even there - a stronghold for Nintendo fans - folk in the comment sections are increasingly griping about the amount of ports and seemingly few decent new titles.

Nearly four years after the console's launch it is a little frustrating. I recall the talk of attention being focussed upon a single system to increase output, but it doesn't feel like that has happened. In terms of great new first-party titles, I think we've had Super Mario Odyssey, Animal Crossing and Three Houses. Maybe Ring Fit, too, as an off-beat fitness game. Tennis Aces gained a mixed reception.

I guess that for folk who didn't have a U you can also look at the ports such as New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe, Treasure Tracker, Zelda BotW, DK Tropical Freeze, Pikmin 3 and Kart 8 Deluxe. Chuck in Tokyo Mirage Sessions. There have been "new" games such as Splatoon 2 and Mario Maker 2... although I feel that they're just updated ports, too.

I get the argument that the ports are good for non-U owners; they can now play them too! But at £49.99, they're more expensive than the U games were at release; and often a lot more than they are now.

Am I being too harsh? Has Nintendo's output been better than I'm making out?

It's been shockingly poor over the last year. But it doesn't bother Nintendo as the system still sells ridiculously well. I suspect a lot of good stuff is being held back for a quality switch 2 launch. As they launched the switch with Zelda and mario close behind it. No chance of Metroid 4 anytime soon but there will be smaller games and dlc to fill the gaps. All they need to do is keep releasing Pokémon dlc and animal crossing stuff and sales will stay strong.

Have to disagree.

Smash Ultimate, Arms, Xenoblade 2 + Torna, Hyrule Warriors 2, Paper Mario, Luigi's Mansion 3, Mario x Rabbids are all fantastic releases in my opinion and give the Switch a really varied lineup. Throw in some welcome remakes in Link's Awakening and Xenoblade De too. Also, Splatoon 2 and Mario Maker 2 are sequels, not updated ports. They both substantially improve on the foundations of the original. Splatoon 2 is a much better balanced game than the first and Nintendo have properly cemented it as a core IP with the sequel.

Has it been perfect? No, 2018 after the bumper 2017 year was patchy at best and 2020 was clearly lacking 1 or 2 big releases. However, you have to give them some benefit of the doubt for last year, with the impact of Covid. Hopefully, this will mean a stronger 2021 as more things line up and become ready for release.

The Switch had a belting launch that bought it a lot of goodwill. I think 2019 was pretty good too, and I think there are excuses for the slow 2018 (one of the first two years is always going to be bad) and 2020 (COVID). I think it’s unfair to limit the Nintendo offerings to that selection as well: to me it feels like Smash, Xenoblade 2, Luigi’s Mansion 3, and Hyrule Warriors 2 all ought to be in the conversation, even if they’re not centrally made projects. Arguably Pokémon, even if they’ve not been the best. Spla2n and SMM2 are just you Jawa, they’ve definitely felt like new games to me and had completely fresh (heh) campaigns.

That said, they’ve definitely eroded a fair bit of that goodwill now, having had two dodgy years out of four. The thing that really irks me is the lack of second-tier all-new portable-esque titles, like 2D Mario, 2D Zelda, Wario Ware, Rhythm Paradise/Ouendan, or Ever Oasis. With the merging of handheld and home console, it feels like we should be getting more of these to fill the gaps. The lack of any new Wario game this far in, in particular, feels absurd.

I am expecting a stonking 2021 to make up for it, even if so far most of the big exclusives feel like they’re coming from third parties. Let’s see.

EDIT: I think I was mostly usurped by Tomous. Ah well!
