Reposting my predictions:

First Party
  • Breath of the Wild is indeed a launch title, in NA. EU is delayed 1-2 weeks. Please understand.
  • Mario Switch is very similar to 3D World; Wario appears as a character this time.
  • Splatoon is not quite a sequel, but is a massively updated port. Octolings are finally playable.
  • Smash is shown; at least one newcomer will be revealed.
  • Mario Kart is MK8 with 4 additional cups, more characters, and classic Battle Mode. Called Mario Kart Infinite and will be updated for the Switch's lifespan.
  • A bizarre new IP, even stranger than Splatoon is revealed.
  • Pikmin 4 is revealed.
  • Pokemon Stars is not mentioned.
  • A brief sizzle reel teases games to be elaborated on during the Treehouse stream.
  • MOTHER 3
  • Rabbids Kingdom Battle is revealed to little applause.
  • New Mario Strikers revealed; gritty Rosalina quickly proves a fan favorite.

Third Party
  • Skyrim Remastered is confirmed, obviously. Launch day.
  • Sonic Mania is confirmed; Project 2017 gets a new teaser.
  • Monster Hunter is shown in some capacity.
  • Marvel VS Capcom Infinite shown off; one new Marvel and one new Capcom fighter revealed.
  • Tecmo shows off a new Nintendo-themed Warriors game. Fire Emblem?
  • Tekken 7.
  • Dark Souls Trilogy confirmed.
  • Dragon Quest incoming.
  • Indie sizzle reel that contains conspicuous UNDERTALE footage, with no comment on Nintendo's part.

Yeah I was thinking the same the other day actually! The Wii U version could go all digital or maybe have a physical release but in extremely limited copies, so much that it will become a rare piece instantly. Like the GC version of Twilight Princess but in way less quantities considering the userbase.

I'm not complaining, just asking what the point is of opening that thread so early. Without anything to discuss, it'll just be pages upon pages of people getting themselves hyped, and I think mods are pretty allergic to that kind of stuff. It's the same reason why OTs aren't allowed a week in advance anymore. Also, why split off the discussion when there's this thread?

If Rosti wants to post the thread then, that's fine. I'm not one to decide what he can or cannot - that's up to the mods. Just curious if there was any reason to do so.

Planning on the switch, Zelda, and pro controller at launch. Maybe an accessory or two if I deem I need it.

I'm earmarking £350 for launch. I hope it's enough to splurge on games and accessories, but I may bump it to £400, shit. It's rare I'm this excited for a console. Last time was the PS4, and the Wii before that. I'm hoping Pikmin 4 and Zelda make it for launch at the very least, and the Splatoon port. That'd be enough for me, plus I want Nintendo to space things out a bit. No need for Mario AND Zelda at launch, for example.

This is the least hype I've felt for Nintendo ever, and it's a brand new home console unveiling. My disappointment with the Wii U, I guess, has had its toll.

I know I'm curious, too. Especially with the games being small chip-thingers, and brick-'n-mortar stores like Gamestop filling themselves with more merch crap and having less space for games.

The man was a true inspiration. He represented everything that I love about Nintendo; he will be truly missed. I only hope that he looks down on the Switch launch and smiles, proud of his final child.

The timing lines up, they always take ~3 years to release a game and Tropical Freeze was 3 years ago. Even so I still don't expect their new game to be here, though I don't have a solid reason for thinking so. Just not getting my hopes up I guess lol

I get the not getting your hopes up thing, but look at it this way: Nintendo NEEDS to reveal a non-port/not being developed for the Wii U title at launch. They need something that says "Hey fuckers, it's a new day!"

The timing lines up for Retro in this capacity. I am expecting a teaser at most, but I think it will be there.

The XCX 'Still Shit' square hurts. Never has a game been more in need of a director's cut than this one. There's a decent game in there struggling to get out...

It'd need so much more than a port, though. It would need some fairly major surgery, and there's no way Nintendo does that for a niche RPG. In fact, I don't expect it to be ported in the first place.

Those first 5-10 hours were so fucking promising... gah!

But what if it's only DKCR3? I'd be hyped as hell at least.

It makes total sense for their game to be there and it wouldn't be shocking to me if it was, but I guess I'd rather be safe then sorry. Don't wanna be disappointed if it's not there.

I'm really hoping the Donkey Kong series doesn't go into another weird experimental phase like it did after Rare was bought out but I do want Retro to move onto something new.

Monster Games could be put on a new DKC since they co-developed Tropical Freeze and ported Returns. Or Diddy Kong Racing 2 because I still believe in Kevin Callahan damn it.

Hah. Yeah I get that. Retro's reveal is certainly not something to hinge one's hopes upon. I am strangely optimistic, though.

The man doesn't want to be the face of Nintendo, and in all likelihood he's going to be stepping down in the next couple years. Man is a temporary placeholder till the next president is picked (certainly already done behind closed doors) and groomed.
