@YummyHappyPills As a home console it's not much more powerful than the Wii U which itself was criticised for its lack of power back when it launched. As a portable, however, it's a beast. Nintendo know what way it should be advertised predominantly. When the 3DS dies, Nintendo will fully back it as a handheld. And also because its lack of power as a home console is only going to widen with time.

@YummyHappyPills If rumors are to be believed, the Crash Trilogy is coming to Switch this year and they also have plans for more Crash games.

@SLIGEACH_EIRE Actually as a portable it is barely above Wii U. As a home console it sits between Wii U and Xbox One.

Sure in GPU power its not that far ahead but in CPU power it is leagues above Wii U, which is why we are seeing Wii U games run better even when they are literal straight ports.

Bayonetta 2 for instance has a 10fps increase when nothing has been done to the game.

Marketibg Switch as a home cobsole is not wrong. Thats what it is. Marketing it as a portable is also not wrong. Thats what it is.

Also I find it odd that Wii U was criticised for power when it launched. So you mean to tell me in November 2012 before the PS4 and Xbox One were publicly known quantities. The Wii U outside of CPU ran rings around Xbox 360 and PS3.

Wure a year after launch itd be considered underpowered, but in 2012, not so much.

Also underpowered isnt the term Id use for a system that is below its contemporaries. Underpowered implies there is a minimum sufficient specification that has been failed to reach.

@IceClimbers Rumours + Switch. Ok thats cute.

Until it is confirmed or definitively denied there is nothing to speculate.

If it was confirmed there'd be no need to speculate.

Speculation is, and always has been, inextricably tied to rumors.

@SLIGEACH_EIRE Didn't they say a while ago that they think Switch is an ideal platform for mid tier games? I think we'll see a lot of that stuff come over. In fact, TWEWY: Final Remix backs that up.

I think we'll see stuff like World of Final Fantasy, FFXII the Zodiac Age, Secret of Mana remake, etc. come to Switch.

As far as their bigger stuff, I think the Tomb Raider Reboot and Rise of the Tomb Raider are possible. The Kingdom Hearts Remix Collection and 2.8 are also quite possible I suppose.

No way in hell FF7 Remake or their Avengers game come to Switch. Kingdom Hearts III... maybe, but it wouldn't be until well after the initial release elsewhere. Even then I kinda doubt it.

Anyways, as for the Ubisoft quote, that statement is dependent on how you define it. Ubisoft is claiming that because of Mario + Rabbids being a major exclusive and it being the best selling third party title.

I'd argue Square Enix is the most prolific supporter of the Switch. In that sense they could be defined as the "biggest" Switch supporter.

@IceClimbers If Koei Tecmo localized all their games, they'd blow Square Enix out of the water easily. But yeah, here in the west Square Enix is probably tops.

@IceClimbers I think Square Enix is doing the best for exclusives and creating a completely different library for Switch than other platforms. But in terms of traditional support, it's rather disappointing to be honest at least based on what we know so far.

I'd prefer more stuff like Crystal Chronicles and Octopath Traveler than them wasting time trying to get FF15 on the console.

I doubt KH3 will come, but if it does, I hope we get the HD collections, though they seem exclusive to PS so I may be unaware of whatever legal stuff might keep them there.

@MisterPi A mixture of both would be best.

On another note, XCX's Japanese website copyright info now has 2018 so we're probably seeing a Switch port this year which isn't exactly surprising.

@Grumblevolcano I don't think it's impossible to see a Xenoblade Chronicles X port in 2018 but that "copyright change" was debunked a while ago

No. The Javascript is retrieving the current date and displaying it. If you were to change your computer's clock to 2017, then it would show 2017.

<script type="text/javascript">
document.write(new Date().getFullYear());</script>

Regardless of javascript (which is a weird thing to use for just displaying the copyright year... I mean, it doesn't need to change, it'll always remain "2015" for XCX), even if a Switch port exists, a copyright year change isn't possible because:

  • the port would get it own, separate website (or at the very least, a /switch/ section), from Nintendo this time
  • the copyright for the port would look like 2015-2018 (provided it did come out this year), not just 2018
  • why would this be changed before the announcement is made?

While I still believe (and hope) a port is possible, I also doubt they'd announce it before they're even done with XC2 DLC.

It seems like the date was simply auto-generated by the user's clock. As such, there's no real reason to have this thread open.

I try not to throw up too much news in this thread, but I haven't heard a peep about this. Fear Effect Sedna is launching on Nintendo Switch on March 6th.

What did the tweet say? I tried to see it, but they erased it.

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.
