I'm kinda on the fence about Yu-No. The anime adaption has had some really cool stuff, and some off the wall, from left field, "What the hell am I watching?" moments too...

But I want Witcher 3, Luigi 3 and Disgaea 4. Not sure when I am gonna have time to play them but...

So I was just watching direct feed footage of Witcher 3 on Switch. I did go back to compare myself to the Steam version (the one I bought at launch in 2015), as well as the PS4 version and considering how stuttery the other console versions were to begin with, this port is honestly even more of a miracle than DOOM 2016.

This looks way too fantastic for a game running at a dynamic resolution which clearly almost never hits the full 720p in docked mode and decreases even more in handheld mode.

It kinda bums me out this is probably the only game we're getting from CDPR for the Switch. There's no way in hell Cyberpunk 2077 is even possible on the console and I doubt they would even consider porting the other 2 Witcher games. If we get anything else, it's probably going to be Gwent

@JaxonH By normal standards that would be considered a fairly stacked month, but after the absolute insanity that is this September it looks somewhat tame in comparison.

My backlog is gonna be insane haha. Gonna have to focus on the higher priority games and then pick up the others later.

Also, a couple corrections: Trine 4 is releasing 10/8 while Torchlight 2 is 9/3.

The Marvel Knights DLC pack for MUA3 is September too lol. I believe those packs are supposed to have story content too.

And you will, in all likelihood, never play Goldeneye on it. It's stuck in licensing hell. Nintendo published it, Rare developed it and 007 needs to be licensed from EON (which neither Nintendo nor Rare has the rights to distribute currently).

tbh, I'd bet Goldeneye will be re-released within the next decade. Nothing too weird's off the table if someone can make money. shrugs

Well i have 5 "REALLLLLLY wants/probably getting" for October. Already had to shave 2 off my list since it'll be impossible to get them all. Considering shaving off another. Just not enough time or cash flow. No time to recoop after the 4-5 I'll be getting in September( I'm counting astral chain, because it's that close to September).

@IceClimbers
Fixed. Thanks.

Its insanely hard maintaining a master list of games releasing without mixing a few up, especially with dates shuffling and what not.

@JaxonH Wait a second, when was The Dark Crystal confirmed for August 30th? I thought it was still a vague 2019 release.

On a different note, Mario & Sonic 2020 now has a release date, November 8th. The source is the UK eshop and it can now be preordered.

EDIT: Turns out November 8th is just for Europe, November 5th is the release date for America.

Nintendo still makes a ton of money off hardware alone! Whether through profit from the console alone, online subscriptions, cuts from the revenue of third party games, etc. They’re not still in the console race, because “people would hate (it if they left)”, but because it makes lots of money.

I’m sure whatever money is lost from not releasing their games on multiple platforms is more than made up by being a console manufacturer and all the perks that come with that.

I doubt whether hardware sales are actually what makes Nintendo rich. It's the software sales that counts. And since Nintendo publishes their titles on their own system, they make more money from software sales: 1) they don't have to pay platform holders and 2) they earn money from 3rd parties paying Nintendo as a platform holder.

I think Switch risks spoiling us for game releases to the point any release schedule on future systems is going to feel lame. Switch is getting so many games because Nintendo missed out on the last 4 generations of 3rd party releases. This is the first viable platform from Nintendo for third party console games in the last 25 years. So everything‘s coming home to roost at once.

But next generation they won’t have that advantage anymore. And that’s fine, but compared to the insane release lineup we’re seeing now I don’t think anything will ever be able to live up to it again. Not unless they go full power console with x86 for automatic multiplats of 95% of releases (and I don’t see that happening, plus that would be pretty boring because I’d have no reason to buy 3rd party games on the system then).

I guess what I’m saying is, enjoy it while it lasts.

@Grumblevolcano
I think that’s actually a Netflix release date. I googled each games release date but probably mixed that one up with the Netflix release.

@JaxonH Pretty sure even with the existence of the insane lineup this fall, if early 2020 is on the slower side like early 2019 was the reactions will be as if fall 2019's lineup didn't exist.

As for Dark Crystal, I checked and yes the Netflix series starts August 30th not the game release.

@toiletduck
Yea, I think software sales and some of the stuff you mentioned (that not everyone always thinks about) is what really establishes long-term cash flow for Nintendo (and Sony, MS). Yea, at 300 bucks a pop, hardware sales are definitely nice chunks of cash, but for most people they will only buy one of your consoles per generation. So, I buy the Switch once for 300 bucks, but I spend thousands on software over the course of 5 years.

And hardware development and support probably costs boatloads of money. That's why we always have those discussions about selling at loss or profit when a new console comes around.

So yea, software is where it's at. And it's probably a safe bet to say, as others have mentioned, that Nintendo would be THE premier third-party dev if they ever went that direction. They very well could make WAY more money than they're making now without the cost of hardware dev, manufacturing, and upkeep weighing them down. And with the ever-present greed of shareholders, I'm surprised the company hasn't been forced into it already.
