Nonsense. Zell was simply giving a comparison for people to understand. He said LIKE "Mario on PS" to indicate a property owned by a 1st party appearing on another. Never claimed it would be as BIG as Mario or IMPACTFUL as Mario, or the BIGGEST PROPERTY OWNED. It was meant to clarify "a 1st party IP you would never expect to see on another system". Banjo is exactly that. An IP owned by Microsoft, which appearing on Switch is like Mario on PS, or Metroid appearing on Xbox, or Kratos on Nintendo. People take things too literally. It was just a statement clarifying a franchise owned by another platform manufacturer, and that's what we got.

All the accusations of "vagueness" get flushed down the toilet when you look at Zell's immaculate track record. Anyone claiming they could have guessed that (without getting anything else wrong and while having a PROVEN legit source) is lying. The statistical likelihood of "guessing" that while also getting dozens of other leaks spot on, leaking Mario Maker 2, Zelda Link's Awakening, countless Direct dates, etc is beyond astronomical.

Told people this months ago. Have to explain it every time. But the typical ignorance of "oh he said Mario on PS, that means it LITERALLY has to be the flagship IP". No. No people. It was just an offhand comment to explain what it was LIKE. A comparison. Comparisons can be drawn on many levels. And the only level that comparison was made, was to explain that it was a 1st party IP appearing on Nintendo. Mario was simply a known franchise easy to draw the comparison with.

People on the internet haven't accurately guessed squat and never could in a million years, yet accuse the most legit and proven asset we've ever had in terms of leaking, as "a lucky vague guess". Bullcrap. Sources are proven, numerous accurate leaks proven. That's not opinion, that's verified fact anyone can look up for themselves.

Eh, I'll just wait for announcements instead. Being happy today or next week doesn't really differ that much to me XD

So what happened to the new version of the console?

Oh you know, Nintendo said they wouldn't be talking about new hardware this week. The rest of the year however? There's plenty of time between now and New Year's for...something. Personally, I assume Nintendo is saving the Mini to coincide with the launch of Xbox Two and PS5 next holiday season.

2020 is going to be expensive.

No More Heroes 3 confirmed to have optional motion gyro.

Daemon X Machina confirmed to have optional motion gyro.

Alien Isolation confirmed to have optional motion gyro.

Doom Eternal and Wolfenstein Youngblood almost certainly will have optional motion gyro.

They've finally done it. They've successfully started a trend industry wide for Switch titles where optional motion gyro is included. Heck even Assassins Creed 3 had them. That's amazing, if you really think about it. The wider industry has been so dead set against motion, it's a wonder to see this catching on finally. And with Steam now turning alot of PC gamers who prefer controllers onto gyro as well, it's really put other console versions at a disadvantage. I wanted to buy DOOM Eternal on both Switch and X1X but, without the gyro... Idk. Think I'd rather wait till I get an expensive PC and buy it on STEAM where I can map gyro.

I wonder if some devs are warned ahead of time of a switch pro being on the horizon, so they can code/optimise their games for it? I'm thinking of Witcher 3!

I'm guessing it would be easy to have docked mode output for portable. So it becomes 720p handheld. But what happens to docked mode for the pro? Can that run even better graphics/resolution/framerate?

If so then hopefully games take advantage of that!

So what are they doing in the treehouse events today and tomorrow? Or are they done with them? I watched most of the treehouse stuff yesterday and it was pretty interesting so I'm interested to see what's in store in the remaining days for Nintendo and e3

@NintendoByNature There’s more today and tomorrow, but I’m not sure what specifically they’re showing. And my email to IT about YouTube went unanswered 😭

@JaxonH he could have said something like Kirby in a PS4 game or similar. But sure, vagueness is par for the course for leakers. And people that want to believe them usually just fills in the holes for them. It lessens their credibility, especially when they become infallible. No one is infallible.

But my point still stands, it isn't good to start spreading rumors that will not turn out to be true. It makes people not believe what is really on the console, which in turn gives the usual "there are no games on Nintendo console".

@HobbitGamer haha yea I'll probabaly wait til tonight and check it all out on YouTube. In previous years i never watched treehouse but this year I have and plan on watching most of it. I really wanted to see how the dungeon maker in links awakening was done and they did a good job explaining it. And watching some astral chain only has me more hyped

@NintendoByNature More of the games that the Treehouse logo in the Direct, between that and the Nintendo Youtube uploads we have these left out of the known stuff:

  • Super Mario Maker 2 pt. 2
  • Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 pt. 2
  • Fire Emblem Three Houses
  • Astral Chain pt. 2
  • Daemon X Machina pt. 2
  • Dragon Quest XI S
  • Luigi's Mansion 3 pt. 2
  • Indie games (Thursday)

There's of course the possibility of surprises as Treehouse Live generally has surprises instore like last year had the Challenge Battle mode for Xenoblade 2 revealed on day 2 coming like a day later and an Arcade Archives games being shadow dropped on day 3.

after that direct, i seriously, seriously hope we get a “switch mini” this year! my dad would be so happy. he LOVED the “dark crystal” growing up as a kid, and also banjo-kazooie (it was the first thing he and my mom ever bought together :’) ), and i know he’d like to be able to play smash with me when i go to college this fall. but he doesn’t want to pay $300+ for something he won’t play more than once a week, ya know. if a mini launched i think he’d be all over it!

Amazon Mexico has Resident Evil 5 and 6 listed, individually, for top-tier full price each.

Hopefully it's just placeholder pricing, but still... Individual retail releases seems odd, specially for 6.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Invisigun heroes was supposed to launch this spring. I hope it's still coming. That indie game would be perfect for the switch.

Shout out to 2K for giving us the same sale on 2K19 that's on the PS Store ($2.99!). Too often when a 3rd party game is on sale on both the Switch and on PS/Xbox the discount is far deeper on the latter.

Torchlight II is dropping September 3rd. I am going to be so broke....but at least its 20 bucks.

Is anybody doing a month by month round up of release dates in here?
