Hopefully Nintendo learned their lesson with Super Smash Bros 4 to not duel release such a critical money-maker. Although I don't think it is anywhere near as big of a deal with the Switch than it was the Wii U, of course.

Learned what lesson? It was a great decision for Smash, and probably one that tested the waters for having such a big game at home and on the go. If it were Wii U only it probably would have underperformed and they may be reselling it to us on the Switch.

That said, I really hope we don't get this on the 3ds. The system has no shortage of pokemon games - it really is time to move on.

What you say is quite possibly true, and I can't deny I'm happy for the scenario we're in where we're getting a new Smash instead of a port. However, I just can't help but think that a major system-seller like Super Smash Bros should not have also been released on the 3DS. It was even released on the 3DS first. I'm not sure how much of a system seller it might have been in the end if it had been Wii U only, but being on the 3DS most certainly didn't help matters.

Anyway, that's a discussion for another topic.

Pokemon's entrance to the Switch needs to be so much more than a 3DS game. Seriously.

@Harmonie I guess my point is that Smash and Pokemon are two very different situations. Smash for Wii U and 3DS met different needs - the traditional TV multiplayer experience and on-the-go gaming. With Pokemon? 3DS will just be a watered-down Switch experience or, as you address, the Switch version will be a glorified 3DS version. Not to mention one of the benefits of Switch's hybrid nature is that Nintendo can focus its resources into a single platform...

Actually - I do wonder if they would incorporate a Stadium-like mode? i.e. support for on-TV battles from the perspective of both players.

@Buizel Even if both versions were developed there were ways to better leverage Smash 4U to Weekend-at-Bernie's the Wii U. Releasing the 3DS (the current gen system with the largest install base at the time) version first removed any possibility that the game could be a system seller for Wii U. It was like Nintendo gave up on the Wii U in effect before they actually gave up on making games and pushing the system at large.

If they wanted to really push the Wii U Nintendo could have announced SmashforU on its own, waited to see how that sold, and then surprise released the unannounced Smash 4DS a few months later.

The key thing to remember is that the 3DS wasn't initially a success, decisions like the massive 2013 lineup and Smash coming to 3DS may have come as a result of trying to save the system in 2011. If a Nintendo home console fails, that's not a massive problem for them because the handheld is almost always a big success and makes up for the failure but if the handheld fails then Nintendo is in big trouble.

So according to the Pokemon subreddit, apparently Nintendo UK opened a "Register for an announcement" page for Pokemon Switch (https://store.nintendo.co.uk/games/nintendo-switch/pokemon.list). Looks like an announcement is incoming next week.

@Tsurii Whelp, that’s not reminescent of Phantom Dust at all...

@shadow-wolf I'm having a hard time finding information on that in the pokemon subreddit. Interesting, but expected if the is actually a game. I'm just so tired of waiting to find out

Just think, if Pokemon isn't announced by May 31st we can discredit a lot of leakers.

@NapalmPsalm Yeah I should’ve posted the link to the subreddit post as well. But NintendoLife posted about it too so you can look at that article.

@KaiserGX Interesting but definitely no way to confirm if they’re real or not. I feel we’d find that out by the end of E3 though.

Judging by the Project_Eevee twitter account it seems we'll find out when the reveal is sometime tomorrow (28th May) Japan time.

It could mean an announcement tomorrow, but it could just as easily be something we're taking out of context.

Who knows. The game will come when it comes. This is almost as insufferable as the January Direct waiting and NX reveal waiting.

Amazing how Nintendo fans can hype themselves up for something into a frenzy and then complain when the company involved didn't even do anything -.-
