Ladies and Gentlemen the reason Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was made and released at full price:

But..but...no one buys Wii U ports. If they wanted it they got it on Wii U...but...muh logic....

@JaxonH I remember when Capcom wanted to charge $50 for Resident Evil Revelations on 3DS initially because it used a 4 GB card lol.

Who knew a popular console would sell more copies of a game than a console that was bought by relatively no one

now let's just hope they announced Animal Crossing, and new IPs!

Further proof that Smash Switch isn't a port of Smash 4. They wouldn't make it the centerpiece of their presentation (the video is all focused on it, Treehouse Live opens with it, and a whole tournament at primetime is devoted to it) if it were just a Wii U port.
Smash 5 hype continues!

Mario Galaxy is ten years old, and now I feel old.

Damn. Keep it rolling I guess. Amazing to see 600 titles on the eShop already!

Look at Bayonetta 2's numbers here. If Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Pokken Tournament DX weren't proof enough that Wii U ports sell, Bayonetta 2 of all games proves that even more. It makes me believe that people will have absolutely no problem paying $60 for DKC: Tropical Freeze when that hits, too.

That's pretty damn impressive, honestly, though I guess it speaks more of how much of a failure the Wii U was than the Switch kicking ass.

@ilikeike Obviously, they're just desparate since they don't have anything better to show than wii U ports /s.

I'd still expect there to be tons of people insisting Smash 6 is a port anyways. Why when there's no evidence of such? That's anyone's guess.

I mean, check this out from the PDF EvilLucario just linked.

What stands out there is they said they heard fans clamoring for it.

Thats...telling.

The official press release for their E3 plans announcement mentions this:

"Games launching beyond 2018 will be featured at a later date"

Not Switch-related, but this new "Dragalia Lost" thing for mobile that Nintendo announced... what even is it?

@IceClimbers My memory is terrible, but did they say the same for E3 2017 where it was just for 2017 titles? Because their 2017 spotlight showed Kirby, Yoshi, and of course Metroid Prime 4, and if they said the same for E3 2017 then I don't trust that. Who knows though.

@EvilLucario Looks like some action RPG mobile game. Guaranteed to have gacha mechanics like FE Heroes I'd imagine.

Edit: Nope. According to ERA, they've never ruled out games for the next year like that before.

@IceClimbers Well now that's interesting. I can't say I'm surprised though, with FE, Smash, Yoshi, TWEWY, Mario Tennis Aces, possibly Dark Souls, and rumors pointing to possible Retro, Animal Crossing, Pokemon, and/or Pikmin 4 reveals, the presentation could easily be packed. Toss in some Amiibos, a few indies, and a couple smaller titles or spinoffs (PMD please?) and you'll fill up the time quite nicely. Not to mention the obligatory 3rd party reveals of course, Ubisoft, Capcom and Squeenix will almost certainly have something.

@IceClimbers I took a look at ResetEra and they also said what I brought up, that they said the spotlight focused on 2017 titles but also announced 2018 titles there. Idk what to believe honestly, but I'm gonna hope for 2019 titles for this year's E3 regardless. Of course keep the spotlight on the 2018 games, but they need stuff in 2019 to tide us over before the end of the year.

I’m not sure how to feel about that. On one hand, I hate long development cycles and nothing is more painful that waiting for a game. On the other hand, I would like a broader look onto the future. There’s always going to be other Nintendo Directs though, so I guess this doesn’t really matter anyway.

Just a geek that likes video games, and spends to much time playing Smash Bros. and Fortnite.

@link3710 Yeah, this could mean that the second half of the year could be much better for Switch than the first half and Nintendo has been keeping a lid on a lot of info/details/reveals for E3. Which I think will be the case. I've always thought it would be. I know some people were disappointed with first half of 2018, but I've always thought that Nintendo was going to make up for it in the second half of the year. They just needed 'a breather' because they just came off of 2017 where they did a lot to make that a very good year for Switch.
