Switch 2019 is like another 3DS 2013. Luigi's Mansion, Pokemon, Animal Crossing, Fire Emblem, and Zelda, all in the same year.

Yup. You can tell they’re replicating the success of 3DS’s best year with 5 of the same franchises.

Only difference is, Switch is also getting a new 2D Mario, new Mario Maker, new Yoshi game, new Marvel game, new Platinum exclusive, new RPG from Gamefreak, new Armored Core spiritual successor, and a whole truckload of quality 3rd party titles 3DS could never even dream of getting- from Dragon Quest XI S and Dragon Quest Builders 2 to Dragons Dogma and Assassins Creed, Trials Rising and Mortal Kombat and Crash Racing, Sonic Racing and Saints Row, Final Fantasy VII, IX, X, X-2, XII, Chocobo’s Dungeon and Crystal Chronicles, Darksiders, new DOOM and Wolfenstein, Pillars of Eternity...

And we’re just getting the year started. There’s more rumored, including some big ones. And we have 10 more months of announcements, Directs and even e3.

I’d say this year tops 3DS 2013 by leaps and bounds.

@JaxonH Third-party-wise? Sure. Aside from the lack of Atlus support, it smokes any pretty much every other Nintendo console year in terms of third party support since... well, since the SNES, honestly.

First-party-wise, that remains to be seen, although I'm expecting extremely good things. I'm not expecting to like the remake of Link's Awakening more than A Link Between Worlds, but this year also has Super Mario Maker 2, Town (supposedly), and probably other surprises. Pikmin 4 would really clench it for me.

The February Direct made me further think that E3 2019 is going to be pretty much E3 2018 with Animal Crossing being the new Smash Ultimate. The "Where is Animal Crossing?" complaining even matches last year's "Where is Smash?" complaining.

Overall I was speaking.

Even so, 1st party wise I'd say is better too. Not sure Link's Awakening will top Link Between Worlds either, but itll still be up there. And this year makes up for it with more ambitious and beautiful games, and more of them.

For example, I expect Fire Emblem Three Houses to handily top Awakening, I expect Luigis Mansion 3 to easily top Dark Moon, Animal Crossing will certainly top the 3DS entry, Pokemon definitely looks better than Sun/Moon, and of course theres all the extra titles (New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe, Mario Maker 2, Town, Astral Chain, Marvel Ultimate Alliance, and Pikmin 3, which I know isn't Pikmin 4 but, it's still yet another cherry on top. Of course, I'm hoping Metroid Prime Trilogy is announced but, even if not, I'd say the exclusive lineup is a record breaker

(Btw, not sure if Astral Chain is Nintendo published or not, but I assume it is like Bayonetta 2 and W101).

@JaxonH The Astral Chain trailer ended with a Nintendo logo, and has Nintendo listed as the publisher. Safe to say like W101, its a Nintendo IP.

@JaxonH Astral Chain might be a game-changer. It's certainly an incredibly attractive-looking exclusive title.

It's pretty incredible how Nintendo went from a sales disaster of epic proportions with the Wii U to what is quickly looking to be the most successful Nintendo console of all time (even if it sells less than the Wii, it will still be a much more successful Nintendo console by other metrics: this one, after all, has an engaged player base that is hungry for all sorts of games; I don't think we'll see many Switches rotting in grandma's basement, like we did with the Wii).

Yes. Precisely.

This is why Switch is such a game changer for Nintendo and its fans. For a long time, they've had the issue of "3rd party games dont sell". At least, as a general rule. Not enough core gamers interested in more than 1st party. And Wii was the perfect example of this.

Switch is like, the anti Wii. Even if it's not quite matching Wii numbers, it's far more impactful pound for pound. Games are selling. Oftentimes more than the almighty PS4. And I know a higher percentage buy digital, but still. A ton of games are outpacing other versions on Amazon and sales charts. DQ Builders 2 slightly outdid the PS4 version in JP. And is outpacing it on Amazon. Trials Rising, despite doing horribly, is at least outpacing other versions on Amazon. Even Assassins Crees 3 is (though that's likely due to fans getting it free in Odyssey season pass). Its crazy because its the exact opposite of what weve come to expect.

I think what's changed is, Switch has brought in core gamers. Core gamers that identify more with PC, PS4 and X1. These guys use Switch as a secondary console, but love the portability for their fave 3rd party games. Cause its definitely not the Wii U faithful. Those guys really only care about 1st party. If it doesnt have NINTENDO on the box, they dont want it (as a general rule- I realize there's around a quarter to half a million within the core fanbase who actually bought 3rd party titles on Wii U).

As long as they stick with the hybrid concept, these core gamers will continue to play on Switch for their portable gaming needs. If Nintendo ever deviates from the hybrid concept, I fear for their future. This IS their future. The only viable one anyways

@Knuckles-Fajita damn.. thats unfortunate. Can't remember but can you get all 3 games separately by digital purchase? Or does origins come as a digital pack

NintendoByNature

Knuckles-Fajita

@nintendobynature All 3 separately, prices aren't known there yet, but knowing Capcom...

@Knuckles-Fajita sure hope there's an incentive to buying digitally if the origins is full price. Even So I'd much rather spend $30 on one game to start rather than $60 upfront for both

@nintendobynature
I wouldn’t get all worked up over a placeholder price for one game at one retailer.

Capcom has consistently priced their games fairly and competitively. Be it Okami HD, Onimusha Warlords, Dragons Dogma, Street Fighter and Mega Man Collections, Resident Evil Revelations and Resident Evil Revelations 2...

Practically every single game was $20-40, and identical to the price on other platforms.

So ya. Idk why anyone is using a premature placeholder from GameStop before we actually have any confirmation, especially when we have two full years of historical precedent contrary to the placeholder price. Maybe it is, maybe it isn’t, but I wouldn’t base anything off a placeholder price from one retailer. Seen this time and again. It’s like people posting release states from the placeholder dates. It’s not real. It’ll be updated later once that information is confirmed.

The RE games are up for preorder on the Aus store. $39.95 each. And no collection so far. Im hoping if you buy one you get a discount on the other games. Ill definitely pick up 0 as ive never played it but Remake, ehhh played it so many times and 4, well I can wait for a price drop.

GeeEmm

NintendoByNature

@JaxonH I hear you. That's what caught me off gaurd. Was that all the other capcom releases were priced competitively so I was a bit taken back by this being $60 is all ( pending that the price is actually 60). I think we are finding out more tomorrow ( hopefully)

For what it's worth, if you still own a Gamecube you can get all three of those games for about $15 each.
