@Anti-Matter I'm hoping if all the Final Fantasy re-releases sell, well, Square Enix will port Kingdom Hearts 1, 2 and 3 to the Switch, and maybe some of the other games too (like Dream Drop Distance HD).

SquareEnix SHOULD Release Classic Final Fantasy games in physical.
Imagine FF VII, IX HD with Switch cover.
Also, FF III, IV HD from IOs Should be on Switch once again.
For FF I & II, SquareEnix can use the PSP version, upgrade into HD 1080p with some 3D effect and FMV from FF I & II PS1.
I could Die in happiness if FF VIII also on Nintendo Switch + in Physical.

My Top 6 games :
1. Dance Dance Revolution series (100)
2. Dragon Quest Builders 2 PS4/Switch (95)
3. The Sims 4 PS4 + All contents (93)
4. Portal Knights PS4 (90)
5. Final Fantasy VIII PS1 (90)
6. Animal Crossing New Leaf: Welcome Amiibo 3DS (89)

That’s true, global releases are more common.

And ya, it’s not nearly enough data to draw any reasonable conclusion from. Sometimes you just have to work with what you’ve got 😊

It all depends on how you look at it. Half the western release dates were May, and it was the most recent three. That’s a really good argument to say the game might come in May.

Or we could just say hey, it’s almost certainly likely to fall between February and May- all six of those western release dates fell between that range. And really that’s not that wide of a time range. Talking a three month span.

Not sure why my post to @Cobalt isn’t getting through. It probably has to do with the multiple quotes in the post?

Where am I going! Nowhere, unless if I say otherwise!

Anyone watching the kinda funny game showcase? Any fans of the messenger (looking at you Liam Doolan) , a new expansion coming to switch for free in 2019!

Reggie’s response when asked about Persona 5 for Switch

You know, I can’t comment on that. Again, from our perspective, we’ve been clear. We want all the best content on our platform. All the best content, all the best developers. And so our job is to continue growing the install base for Nintendo Switch to drive engagement of our players, to grow the audience. As that happens, then developers see the opportunity

Sounds like exactly what Reggie would say when something is true but he can’t say. Like cloud saves. You have to do an IF THEN approach. IF it weren’t true, THEN what would his response be? It wouldn’t be that, of that I’m certain.

So the Fighters Pass seems to be promotion of new games for Switch, the difference being that people didn't expect Persona to come to Switch outside of maybe the Persona Q spinoffs.

@subpopz
Well, saying a game is coming, at any time, always increases Switch appeal.

So why then don’t they just announce every single game that’s in the works that’s on the way, right here and now and be done with it?

And I think the answer to that is that, while yes it would increase Switch appeal, you can strategically announce it at a better time and increase the sum appeal even more. Otherwise all games would be announced the minute they were conceived and we would go years without hearing of anything new.

I imagine there are many possible reasons to announce it later. Just like Skyrim, which even after we saw the footage in the Switch reveal trailer, they still refused to confirm it. They plan certain dates and events to announce things and they just don’t announce them before that date and time. Right now they can generate a lot of excitement and speculation with Joker, and that speculation about the game coming will only drive more curiosity and excitement on top of the excitement from Joker in Smash. And then at a later time they announce the game and generate even more excitement, and use it to help perhaps fill the announcement slots for a Nintendo direct, because they know they have to have a few announcements every few months to keep the excitement going. So strategically placing those announcements spread out evenly, is more effective than announcing things the minute the public suspects a game might be coming

@Grumblevolcano
Not necessarily. One or two might be to help promote a series, but that doesn’t mean all of them have to be. Although, I do suspect that will be the case given Nintendo is choosing these characters.

The important thing to take away here is that Nintendo decided the DLC characters. And if Nintendo overruled Sakurai’s soveignty of choice, then there has to be politics involved. PR and marketing has to be involved. And knowing Nintendo chose this character, you have to ask the reason why. If it was Sakurai who sovereignly chose this character independent of Nintendo‘s wishes, then we might be able to chalk it up to Sakurai just choosing a character he likes. But because Nintendo chose it... you have to wonder what the reasoning was behind that choice.

There’s only one logical conclusion that explains that reasoning of choice.

@GrailUK Wait, did we get more news on Mineko's Night Market? That interested me when it was shown in the Indie Direct.

Yeah, I think P5 on Switch is a lock right now. I'm sure Sega/Atlus wants to cash in on all of those handheld double dips(as they did with P4G on Vita), especially in Japan. The Persona Q games prove that Sony doesn't have an exclusive deal with the series. Imo, it's just a matter of time until they announce it.

Now playing: SEGA Genesis Collection, Starlink, Smash Bros Ultimate

@nintendobynature Ye! Is that the game made by the Runbow folk?

@KryptoniteKrunch Vita is also being discontinued next year so Switch is their only option for the handheld strategy you mentioned.

@Matthew010 Even more out there, I'd really like a full 358/2 Days remaster. They already have the HD models and tons of new audio they could use. Now the actual game itself needs to be redone (and... fix the pacing preferably)

Looks like lots of people picked up a Switch on Friday, it took 1 day for MK8 Deluxe to get to #2 on the UK eshop charts.
