We all know being a portable console, Switch is going to miss most of the big, new releases.

Cost of doing business gaming on a hybrid.

But there’s still some good stuff getting leaked, if anyone is interested. Beyond the Darksiders Genesis

Spyro Trilogy (releases Sept)
Ni No Kuni (listed separately from the remaster on PS4/PC, supposedly same remaster though, just different res, perhaps not marketed as such to avoid the typical “but it’s not Remastered like the other versions” blowback

I’m definitely good with that, particularly the second, which will make a fine addition to the ever growing hybrid Hall of Classics library

I remember when Xenoblade was that game that NOA didn't think was worth bringing over despite ****-all happening on the Wii by that point, even after the NOE release was highly acclaimed. Actually, I remember when niche JRPGs were stuck in Japan and presumed to be a dead genre no one cared about outside of a few select series. Like Tales Of, Bravely Default and Ni No Kuni at one point all had the possibility of being stuck in Japan forever. Things sure have changed...

Still amazed NieR: Automata apparently sold 4 million copies.

To this day I'm still baffled at how that game did so well. In a good way.

Pretty stoked for the second one.
Always wanted to play that.

@JaxonH I'm INCREDIBLY excited for Ni no Kuni. Holy crud! I can't believe I'm going to be able to play that on a Nintendo portable soon.

And Spyro?!

I'm going to bankrupt by 2020.

@Anti-Matter, before you get rid of your PS4 why won't you try titles like Tearaway Unfolded, Gravity Rush, Ratchet & Clank, Knack, the Tales series (there is one also on Switch, but PS4 currently has a couple more), Everybody's Golf, and the Last Guardian?

As far as I can tell, these titles seem fit your tastes (all E or T rated, cartoony or anime art direction, and in terms of "bad" content they have nothing worse than Final Fantasy X or Metroid Prime: Federation Force, both of which I know you like) but you're not interested in any of them?

I'm interested to see if the Spyro Trilogy will get new extra content (in all versions) to celebrate the launch the launch of the PC and Switch ports similar to how Crash N Sane Trilogy got an extra level and some other small changes when it went multiplatform

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

Anti-Matter

@RR529
Let me check.
Tearaway = Nah... Too blocky like Minecraft 😐
Gravity Rush = Still not interested at all 😐
Ratchet & Clank = I have sold the game after 2 hours gameplay since 2 years ago, i didn't find any interesting from 3rd person view "shooting" 3D platformer like that. 😑
Tales series = Zero interest.... 😐
Everybody's Golf = Looked interesting but i'm bad at playing golf video games so i don't think i can enjoy the game. 😣
The Last Guardian = Zero interest... 😑

Btw, i have Double, Triple, so many times checking those titles from playasia but still... Not interested.

The only games i have very strong interest on PS4 = Portal Knights (despite i have the Switch version as well but the PS4 version still far superior than Switch due to Rainbow Island and DLCs), The Sims 4 (Still my main hostage, i will drop my support with PS4 once this game also on Nintendo Switch with same contents as PS4 version), Dragon Quest Builders 2 (Also on Nintendo Switch but with 30fps, however i can just consider the Switch version only if i changed my mind)

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)

"PS Vita- A bit of screen burn in but otherwise perfectly functional"
So I guess you have the first model of the Vita? With the OLED screen?

I read far and wide before investing in Vita and I found that the LCD and the 1 GB internal memory (for saves obviously) gave the edge to the "plastic" model. Even if the colors are not a vivid as the OLED screen.

RedderRugfish

@Zuljaras Yep, got the original PS Vita. The OLED technology itself is more susceptible to burn in LCDs, and the PS Vita likes its menu bars on the system UI that stay there all the time.

FIFA 20 on Switch will be a 'legacy' edition apparently. See you next Tuesday, EA.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

EA is one of the stupidest companies I’ve ever seen, and there is a lot of stupidity to go around nowadays so that’s really saying something.

But, I just stopped caring. Let them do whatever they’re gonna do. As nice as it would be to have every game in existence on a hybrid, it’s probably never going to happen unless mobile tech sees a breakthrough and can match home console architecture, which is where the focus will always lie.

Just give me my exclusives, give me a fat handful of the classics ported over (doesn’t have to be all of them or even close to the majority- just enough to keep me busy in between the exclusives). Anything else that doesn’t come over I feel I absolutely cannot miss, I can always play on the TV.

So the heck with EA. Support the system, don’t support it... it doesn’t really matter at this point. Give me my Fire Emblem, Astral Chain, Mario Maker 2, Pokemon, Animal Crossing, Zelda Links Awakening, Town, Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, Daemon X Machina, toss in some quality 3rd party titles like Dragon Quest XI S, DQ Builders 2, DOOM Eternal, Wolfenstein Youngblood, God Eater 3, Darksiders 2, Darksiders Genesis, Sniper Elite 3, the aforementioned leaked titles... that’s more than enough to keep me satisfied the remainder of this year (and probably most of next year as well tbh).

I do think I’m gonna pick up an Occulus Quest for Sports Scramble though. I’d written off VR since it’s such a hassle to set up and use every time, but Quest is like the Switch of VR. 100% wireless and mobile without any sensor bars required, and Sports Scramble is the Wii Sports game I’ve been waiting on. It has my bowling. Will probably give away my PSVR to my mom/dad for Christmas. Maybe they can get some use from it.

Secret of Mana Collection leaked for Switch. No big surprise there, but still nice to hear.

Is Nintendo Life going to stream the Super Mario Maker 2 tournament?

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

That was leaked about a week ago....

I don't know where the myth of "Devs will leave all the underpowered consoles/handhelds once the next gen consoles arrive". It didn't happen with the GB, DS, PSP, 3DS, and Vita and the transition from the last gen. of consoles to the new gen. is never that seamless, especially with Japanese devs. Anyone remember Sonic Unleashed for PS2, MGSV for PS3 and XB360, Persona 5 for PS3, etc.?

JaxonH

The next gen games that won’t be able to run on Switch already can’t run on Switch. So there’s not really going to be any loss there. And 7th gen ports to a newer system won’t hinder their ability to be ported to Switch also, so there’s not really going to be any loss there either. Not to mention, new consoles won’t be out til Holiday 2020 anyways, and most games will be cross generational for 2 years after release at that, putting us at holiday 2022 going into 2023. And by that point, Switch will be 6 years old, tailing the end of its lifespan with the last hurrah of games that have been in development for 3-5 years.

So ya. It’s not an issue.

@BruceCM
It wasn’t actually leaked a week ago, it was just trademarked a week ago, strongly implying a possible release, though no platforms were specified (hence why I said no big surprise)
