DQB seems awesome. It looks like Minecraft but with a game included.

@SLIGEACH_EIRE It's amazing how well the Switch sells, even with continuous shortages in that region.

Hopefully it doesn't take too long for Pokemon, Yokai Watch, and Dragon Quest to release on the Switch, and for supply to improve in Japan. You think THESE numbers are nuts...

Do they also celebrate a 'holiday season' this time of year in Japan? ..I know that Christmas is often seen as a crucial sales period in the West - just curious as to whether it's similarly/equally crucial over there? ..either way, those numbers are staggering!

Well... there's a Segata Sanshiro commercial for the Saturn where he's dressed as Santa Claus.... and he pummels a few kids because the little punks AREN'T PLAYING A SATURN!

So, it must be somewhat important.

@NaviAndMii christmas is a major romantic and sales holiday in Japan. They love Santa like the rest of us. For those hoping for religious reverence...I think like 1percent of Japan is christian...so yeah good luck with that. 3 of my closest Japanese (as in Native Japanese and moved to the US) buddies are christian but there is still a very obvious buddhist influence to all of them because that is how they were raised. Sorta like how I'm an atheist and I still crack religious in-jokes because I was raised southern baptist.

@JaxonH It is THQ so I'm cautiously optimistic. With them we will get the game 2 years late.

@JaxonH Preordered. Thanks for the link! Loved that game on PC! One of the last truly great efforts from the old Sierra.

@Ryu_Niiyama I still find it funny in a delightful sort of way that Japan gets so into Christmas. I believe S. Korea does now, too. I imagine in both cases it was the influence of heavy US presence (occupation in Japan's case, and joint war/DMZ defense in Korea's) in the 50's & 60's that got them to get attached to the holiday.

Similarly I find it fun that Nintendo was the exclusive playing card producer for the Provisional Government for US occupying forces, a contract Struck by Yamauchi himself. So for the youngsters on the forums, even your great grandfather probably played Nintendo....albeit a little differently

@NEStalgia Well its a fun holiday and winter solstice is still important in a lot of cultures (your US occupation speculation is correct though) and its close enough to christmas to get lumped into the whole thing. Besides christmas is a mixture of actual christian/judeo/islamic themes, themes not from those religions (I refuse to call a religion pagan...your made up deity is as valid as somebody elses imo), and commercialism so if you look at it that way its not THAT farfetched. Like I said I'm an atheist and I still celebrate with my family as a family and peaceful holiday (I let them go to church alone....I've done my time) so I get why other cultures would adopt it as well. Its like other countries adopting black friday imo. No reason to do so....but they do it because the US makes a big deal out of it.

Anyhoo, I am wondering if this could be the start of a wonderful RTS and Simulation relationship with the switch. Plus with the gyro aiming you sorta have a mouse...or at least a wii pointer.

@Ryu_Niiyama I really thought WiiU would be picked up as the RTS console actually. The large touch screen really made sense for it.....alas....

So I'm not the only one who imagined an RTS set in the Zeldaverse with a dual joycon control scheme to simulate basic RTS mouse control?

I think RTS would fit Metroid better and no worries about massive backlash as Samus Returns and Prime 4 exist unlike when Federation Force was announced and the franchise's future was unknown.

@Grumblevolcano

Zelda has a wider race pool to draw from. A lot more variety for factions and playstyles.

Then again, Halo Wars is just 2 factions and it's fun...

EDIT: Well, there is the Luminoth and Ing... if they just wanted to handwave the latter's existence. Plus, everyone loves a zerging race...

Pikmin is their resident RTS game, as unique as it is.

JaxonH

I want Pikmin too. Pikmin 4, specifically.

No stylus this time for touchscreen play though. So it would have to be analog and motion. And you could use motion for the TV or tabletop.

And if we don't get DKC Tropical Freeze ported it'll be a tragic disappointment.

I never beat DKC:TF... I think I was in world 2? I didn't hate it or anything, but I found it hard to get motivated to play (although that's not exclusive to that game).

I have an unplayed copy of XCX too. Maybe Switch ports would get me to play them (although, that makes my original copies kind of a waste... but then, no one can predict what'll get ported/ remade).

A switch port of XCX with text that didn't give me migraines would be really nice.

Bayonetta 2 was the main Wii U port that I wanted so I'm happy.

Would like to see Tropical Freeze and Tokyo Mirage Sessions get ports though.

Oh, and Smash of course!

@NEStalgia Agreed. I had such high hopes for the WiiU I still think it is a powerful concept that the Switch has not exactly usurped. However the support follows the money which follows the market. Sigh.

I was hoping a lot of Wii U games would get ported to Switch just based on the concept of play anywhere. These were my most wanted out of the less obvious games to port:

  • XCX
  • TMS#FE
  • Bayonetta 1+2
  • Wonderful 101
  • Super Mario 3D World + Treasure Tracker

I say 3D World being a less obvious one because we have the 3D Mario everyone seemed to want back in the Wii U era instead of 3D World (Odyssey returning back to the 64/Sunshine formula).
