@Grumblevolcano, at most M&S 2020 would rule out a 2020 release for MG, but not the absense of MG entirely.

Despite the existence of M&S 2012 & M&S 2016 on 3DS, it got both Mario Golf: World Tour & Mario Sports Superstars (which had a golf mode).

Mario Golf will either appear next year, or after M&S 2020. Camelot has to do something after Aces releases afterall, and it would probably be quicker for them to turn out a Mario Golf than a Golden Sun (to keep the release schedule momentum), as I imagine they'd be able to reuse some assets from Mario Tennis Aces (like maybe the character models). Furthermore, if Aces is indeed just built "on top" of Ultra Smash, it may have not taken long to develop.

@RR529 Depends on the lifespan of the Switch and how much effort is put into Mario & Sonic 2020. Also Mario & Sonic 2012 didn't have golf so World Tour was the debut of Mario Golf type experiences on 3DS.

@link3710 It's true that there was an eight year gap between Golden Sun TLA and Dark Dawn. The problem is that the original two Golden Sun games were very well received and sold well, whereas Dark Dawn didn't do as well on either count.

I personally saw nothing wrong with Dark Dawn, but apparently everyone else did. And when Super Smash Bros 4 came out and not only did Golden Sun not get more representation but it actually decreased in representation down from having an AT to not, I really began to lose hope.

I know that's Super Smash Bros, and all. Probably not the best gauge, but it's not that alone.

@Grumblevolcano, it depends on if Mario & Sonic even "counts" for Nintendo, being that it's an externally developed series.

There's really no evidence one way or the other as to whether Nintendo decides what sports games to release themselves based on what SEGA chooses to put in it's Olympic games.

I'd rather they remake Golden Sun & Lost Age into the one game it was supposed to be. That'd give it it's 2nd chance, and renew interest in continuing the series if it's well received (either with a Dark Dawn remake and further sequels, or a retcon of Dark Dawn with a whole new “3rd“ game).

Id like to Mario Strikers there as well. Mario Sports titles are underrated in my opinion. I actually enjoyed Mario Tennis on WiiU it's just a shame it was so bare bones so I have high hopes for Aces this year.

Yeah, I agree that Nintendo's sports games are underrated - I'd genuinely rate Mario Strikers Charged Football as one of the best football games I've ever played, Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resort were amazing, Mario Tennis games are usually pretty great...and they even managed to make Golf fun! ()

I'm actually pretty hopeful about Aces - can't wait to see more of it! ..and I'd love to see Nintendo bring a few others to Switch too - Strikers, Golf, Sports...bring 'em all I say!

I'm not sure we'll see any others this year, but I'd love to be proved wrong!

I know its based a lot on optimism but I do think Mario Golf is in development. I imagine Ultra Smash provided a solid foundation for Aces and the team required is fairly small compared to something built from the ground up.

I also think the lack of sport titles on Switch means Nintendo will have to to it alone and make there own and these two titles would be a great start.

There's a reason we're getting Aces instead of a new Mario Strikers or Golf game despite them being absent for far longer. Aces is clearly an extension of Ultra Smash. That turd was half-baked, it was removed from the oven way too early, there's no way Aces can be worse. I prefer Strikers and Golf personally. And I'd love a new Mario Golf game out of all the sports games Nintendo make. I'd change the swing meter though.

Nintendo needed something on Wii U near the end as it was continually starved, they kept all the good stuff for Switch. They shoveled out some awful crap. They probably looked at it like, "we're going to rerelease Wii U games on Switch anyway, so we might as well give Wii U owners the demo version of Aces and charge them €60 for the privilege disgrace".

I have no issue with Aces being an improved and expanded version of Ultra Smash. I love tennis games but I didn't buy that one as I knew beforehand what I would have got if I had,or in this case wouldn't have got. I left a comment in this thread several months ago saying I'd like to see a new Mario Tennis game for Switch that uses the same engine as US but has all the features Ultra Smash should have had and more. The graphics and gameplay itself were good, just there was nothing to do in it. It would have been a shame to see what was half built be wasted.

I loved Toki Tori, I completed it on Wii and then bought it again on Wii U just to support the devs. It's sequel however I didn't enjoy at all. It was a lovely looking game and certainly unique but I just didn't find it to be fun to play. I think gave up on it about half way out of boredom, rather than challenge.

I think there's another AWOL franchise we're forgetting... Punchout. It hasn't been absent as long as F-Zero, but the last acknowledgement of the franchise was Smash 4, half a decade after the last game.

And yes, I'm aware ARMS exists. But comparing the two is like comparing apples and oranges. One is a fighting game. The other is a puzzle game cleverly disguised as a boxing game.

I would like to see Next Boxing games for Switch
Instead of Next Punchout for Switch, how about some Cartoonish Chibi Boxing like my design with Gameplay like ARMS (Without extension arms and weapons) + Character customization + Live Mode (Career Mode + Live Simulationlike Animal Crossing) ?

JN: What is Shining Resonance Refrain?

JK: Shining Resonance Refrain, although brand new for the West, is a remaster of the PS3 game Shining Resonance, which was originally released only in Japan. This is the first time we are bringing it to the West. Along with improved graphics, Shining Resonance Refrain includes all the DLC released for the original, plus a brand-new “Refrain” mode with new content, which unlocks the Imperial Princess Excella and Dragonslayer Jinas as party members. This new mode is intended for those who want a second playthrough or who previously played the game released in Japan.

(Snippets of the interview)


The more I read about this game the more excited I am aaaah!!

Please hurry and tell us when's the date Sega please XD (Although I hope around End of April to June I guess).

@YummyHappyPills

I thought it was kinda obvious; ARMS is fighting, Punchout is puzzles disguised as a boxing game.

@DarthNocturnal Ah. Most people would argue the motion controls are the puzzle in ARMS. You missed the joke.

Maybe I should stop trying.
