I don't think a 2D Zelda would take long to develop but could the developers handle developing a 2D and 3D Zelda side by side??.

They've quite litterally been doing that for 20 years....

I'm not convinced Nintendo decide on mechanics first before designing gameplay? I would have thought it be the other way around. I mean, I am sure they have tons of left over design from BotW to warrant another game, but that doesn't mean they haven't got other ideas that would suit 2D mechanics more. It is much harder to think 'let's make a 2D Zelda' than ask 'what mechanics would suit these game ideas?' (unless you are taking, ahem, 'inspiration' from another game.)

@Whitewatermoose They can keep releasing Windwaker and I'll keep buying it lol.

Be awesome if GTA5 was announced in thedirect!

Destiny, justice and retribrution will be mine.

An important factor to consider with the Zelda situation is how much of BotW's success is tied to the game being western RPG like.

@DannyBoi It could happen but I think they would announce it at E3, I suspect that overwatch is also going to be at this E3

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but as each day passes, it's looking less and less likely that a Direct will happen. If it doesn't happen in the next seven days, it's probably not happening for a few months.

@TheAwesomeBowser next week is the last chance for January, otherwise It's february or march. I don't think it's going to be 3 or 4 months.

@ilikeike been saying this same thing for a while. Just give me a 2d or 3d remake of LTTP in BOTW engine and I will preorder instantly!

A few days ago, there was a GoNintendo article about Wargroove releasing very soon on Switch so I could see @Whitewatermoose's theory of next week being Nindies focused maybe coming true.

@Whitewatermoose I’m pretty sure there’s still indie games announced during 2017 that have yet to release, so I wouldn’t be at all surprised if there were games from last year not yet released.

I’m not too worried about indie games getting delayed etc as they’re small teams, sometimes just one or two people. So if they need to go silent until nearer completion then so be it.

It’s the bigger games getting delayed that can worry me.

I'm actually fine with a nindies presentation next so long as we get a full blown direct early February. I love spending $15-20 on indie games to tide me over until the big releases as long they're quality titles like messenger, shovel knight and hyper light drifter(even hollow knight even though it bothers me to no end sometimes). But when those gems aren't releasing , I need some 1st party titles coming. Ports or new games. All are welcome

@nintendobynature there will be those who love indie games and thats cool but for me they are generally just something to play between big Nintendo or third party releases. I dont deny there quality but i also get excited for very very few of them.

@bluemage1989 I think were in the same mind set. Some thing to play but would rather have big titles. The indies hold me over in the meantime and it's nice they're usually at a budget price. Very few indies wow me like messenger shovel knight and hyper light drifter did. The others are nice little time fillers that keep me busy. But having bought my Wii u recently as you know, I'm probabaly taking a back seat to indies until i play some of the bigger titles and VC games on Wii u. Which I'm happier about actually. At least ill know most games will be high quality as the Wii u's library is well established by now and theres more than enough info and reviews on them to develop a good decision as to whether I should make a purchase or not.

Some indie skateboarding game that has a lot of people excited, is that coming to Switch as well?

If you mean Skater XL, it hasn’t been announced for any console and it’s still in Steam Early Access.

I think 3rd party mobile ports similar to these below are likely. Which is why I said keep expectations in check:
iOS:
Ace Attorney trilogy, Monster Hunter Stories, NBA Jam, Pac-man CE DX, Modern Combat, Shadowgun Legends, Hearthstone, Puzzles and Dragons, GTA Vice City, Dungeon Hunter, Roblox, Total War, Dragon Quest compilation, Alien Isolation Blackout, Elder Scrolls Blades

The bolded games are confirmed to be on or coming to current Nintendo consoles. All of the others barely have a chance, and that’s a good thing. The only plausible games to come to Switch are P+D, GTA, DQ, and Hearthstone. Most of the others weee made for mobile in mind, except for Roblox. Roblox is kind of a tricky thing, since it’s only on PC, XO, and Oculus. Because it’s not on PS4, I doubt they would release it on Switch because it seems they don’t really want to be on consoles. Also, if it did come, Roblox would still be F2P, that’s how it has always been and always will be.

A bizarre musical mashup filled with Yes, Queen, and some other things.

Please notify me if you want to add me on Switch before sending a request. It makes my life easier.
