Funky Kong as Secret character for Octopath Traveler.
With the power of Banana, he will punish the foes.

Btw, this is the Official Japanese cover.

And of course NO Funky Kong Mode added.

Probably not. Nintendo has been tight-lipped in these meetings since Kimishima took over. Some things might slip, maybe some release dates for known games. But I wouldn't count on anything above it.

I will make a wild prediction and say Nintendo will announce a new handheld this year. Probably not at e3 though.

Too early.

Next year. If they're gonna announce one... it'll be next year. They want to squeeze out this last year of 3DS sales.

Unless you guys mean a remodeled version of the Switch, I'd have to disagree. Everything that would have gone to the 3DS successor is coming to Switch, so I'm not sure what the point of it would be.

I have no idea how I can get Labo.

Cant order online as I dont get paid until release day. But the odds of me finding it on the high street is impossible unless I go several towns over

Not to mention, having a second handheld system would be foolish at this time. They combined their console and handheld divisions and the Switch has massively good momentum right now. They can't afford to cannibalize those sales and hamper software like they did during the Wii U and 3DS days. And while you can argue that putting all of your eggs in one basket is also dangerous, they have other avenues like that online paid subscription, amiibo, and they were dipping their toes beyond video games like the theme parks and Mario movie.

Metroid, Xenoblade, EarthBound shill

@YummyHappyPills No shortages of them around here and from what I can tell there is less of an interest in EU so I can't see them being that hard to find?!

I think Nintendo announcing/releasing a handheld that is seperate from the Switch line would be one of the worst decisions they have ever made. Nintendo might promote the Switch as a home console you can take on the go but with games like Pokémon ,Octopath Traveller ,Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensai it's receiving exactly the kind of games a current gen Nintendo handheld would. I just can't see any logic in why they would release a standalone handheld device? Would it be weaker and receive less impressive versions of Pokémon and Fire Emblem? If so what would be the point? If it was more powerful then it would kill off the Switch.

Now a remodeled Switch that is handheld only ,that is certainly possible.

@OorWullie But that wouldn't be a Switch though, would it? It would be a... non-switching Switch. Makes no sense to me. In that case they might as well just market it as a new handheld, since essentially that is what it would be.

@JaxonH If you got the time, do you mind separating the list you wrote up by month? That will make Nintendo's output per month a bit more clear.

But I guess part of it was expectations. I was expecting everything we knew last year to show up before E3 this year. I was expecting Fire Emblem to be the big game of the first half of 2018, with Yoshi and Kirby supporting it. We got Bayo and Donkey Kong which is certainly great, but otherwise I was a bit disappointed that they weren't releasing anything super big-name in the first half. Of course as you mentioned, to the masses Bayo and DK are new and to them they almost certainly are the highlights for the first half of 2018. But otherwise I feel that Nintendo should have been a bit more aggressive with releasing games. Nothing in the first half (besides the Wii U ports) screams "must-have", and as you mentioned that is perfectly fine and acceptable, but I was expecting Fire Emblem to prop up the first half before a trifecta of Smash-Pokemon-Retro's Mystery Project showed up to end 2018 with a bang. Now, Yoshi and Fire Emblem are likely late 2018, Smash is coming, but we might not get Pokemon and we likely won't get Retro's game if they're also releasing Yoshi and Fire Emblem in the second half.

I think Nintendo should stay the course till sales start to drop off. If we get Smash and Pokemon this year that wont happen anytime soon. Just like I don't think Sony should announce a new system till their sales drop. It's still coming in first in the west and they would be stupid to cut into those sales now while they're still riding so high.

@shadow-wolf
Couple big games a year. That's all that matters. Smash and Fire Emblem and one more this year (maybe Mario Maker), Pokémon and Metroid Prime 4 and Retro's game next year... it doesn't really matter how it plays out

As long as we're getting a couple big games every year and other games spaced throughout the year to keep us entertained.

No news on Fire Emblem at all since last E3. That makes me suspicious if we will see it released 2018.
It’s my the most anticipated game this year. So far it’s very disappointed year for me. I know we are early in the 2018 and I really hope for some big news from E3.

@CroRock It wasn't last E3, it was the Fire Emblem Direct on 18th January last year.

I'm almost certain we'll get a full Fire Emblem reveal at E3 with it still releasing later in the year.

@Spoony_Tech I'll explain this.

In my town, there are no game stores. The only stores are small supermarkets that only ever, if at all, stock FIFA and CoD.

Two towns over, you have an independent MS/PS only store, the same supermarkets, and Argos. Argos MAY have Nintendo Labo in stock, however it isn't a full size store.

If I want a Smyths toy store, or GAME, I need to travel via train.
