@TheFrenchiestFry Cool. I might try and find a copy for a relatively sane price then, perhaps after trying the demo that @teo_o mentioned. I always forget about the live translation in Google Translate. That, coupled with my intermediate-ish(?) Japanese should be enough. Glad to hear the story is good! The last game I tried to play in Japanese was Xenogears 1&2 on the DS. That was quite a challenge due to the low resolution making certain kanji a bit hard to make out.

As for the main topic, I'd love to see Xenoblade 3 or some other Xenoblade related or Monolith game arrive in 2021. I suspect it's highly unlikely there will even be any Xenoblade 3 news next year however, let alone a release. As for confirmed titles, I'm very much looking forward to SMT V.

@mcdreamer Xenoblade 3 would be a nice surprise but I'm wondering what happened to that other seemingly original game Monolith was working on. It's been ages since those pieces of concept art leaked, and I imagine they're pumping the brakes on Xeno-related games for a while now that they've released two of them on Switch in quick succession unless by some miracle they announce a Xenogears or Xenosaga collection

Uh, we dont need another Xenoblade game.

@TheFrenchiestFry Yeah, I was wondering about that other game as well. Perhaps if we get news on anything from Monolith it might be about that. A Xenogears or saga collection would be amazing!

I've got so much backlog at this point that I'd almost be happy for zero games to be released next year...

But realistically. It'd be nice to see Bayo 3 release. I could see that being the October "halloween" release. News on BotW2 would be very nice too, although I'm not sure I see it actually coming out next year. Maybe a March 2022 release to make it exactly 5 years since BotW. Then again, it is the anniversary next year, so maybe it'll sneak in as the big holiday game.

We've already got SM3DW confirmed, which I'm looking forward to replaying, so that about covers me for Mario. A look at Metroid Prime 4 would be nice - I definitely don't expect it to be releasing next year (I suspect we'll be looking at late 2022 at the earliest), but it'd be nice to have a trailer or concept reel, just something to show all's well at Retro.

Beyond that? No enormous hopes. Nintendo's good at dropping surprises nobody expected (Age of Calamity springs to mind), so I look forward to seeing whatever they have in store for us.

But please, be gentle on my backlog...

Kind of agree. And with a half dozen or more games on my radar, most Indies, it kind of is a relief.

That said, Nintendo needs to maintain momentum and will need more than a 2020 to sustain.. ... I think we see some surprises tho, maybe even this year. Announcements at least.

I think an updated re-release of Xenoblade X is probably next on the docket.

I imagine Xenoblade 3 will be saved for Nintendo's Switch successor.

I would like to see all of the following by the end of 2022:

-BotW2
-Mario Odyssey 2
-Mario Kart 9
-2D Metroid
-3D Kirby
-Metroid Prime Trilogy

So any 3 or 4 of those would be good, with the last 2 or 3 happening in 2022.

Also remakes of Pokemon Diamond/Pearl. It's time for this to finally happen.

@Bolt_Strike You've got quite the pipe dream of a list lmao

I'd be happy if ONE of those things happened next year

Outside of Mario Kart 9, I'm decently certain all of those will happen by the end of 2022 also.

Honestly they're not really a stretch, and the only reason I'm thinking Mario Kart 9 won't happen soon-ish is because they'll want to save it for an early Switch 2 game.

@TheFrenchiestFry Well like I said, this is a 2 year list. That much in 2 years should be perfectly reasonable because all of those IPs haven't released in 3 or 4 years, so they should be ready for new entries soon. I mean, look at their predecessors:

-BotW: 2017
-Odyssey: 2017
-Mario Kart: 2017
-2D Metroid: 2017
-Kirby: 2018
-Pokemon: Releases yearly

And we already know that Prime Trilogy is basically done, they're probably just saving it to market Prime 4. And since Prime 4 will probably release 2022/2023, releasing Prime Trilogy in 2021/2022 as a teaser would make sense.

So yeah, this list isn't a pipe dream. This is actually fairly reasonable considering Nintendo's development patterns, and from what we know and expect from them, we're almost guaranteed at least 3 of these.

@kkslider5552000 Mario Kart is one of those games that's going to sell no matter when and where they release it, and they probably have tons of ideas on what to do for an entry built from the ground up on the Switch to the point where they'd consider it worth it to release an original game. There's no real sense in waiting, especially when the next console is nowhere near ready.

@Bolt_Strike Nintendo did say at the May 2020 investor meeting that the Switch was barely at the halfway point so it's reasonable to think the Switch's successor will launch around March 2023.

Follows 3DS too:

  • March 2011 - 3DS/March 2017 - Switch
  • October 2013 - 2DS/September 2019 - Switch Lite
  • February 2015 - New 3DS/Early 2021 - Rumoured new Switch revision
  • March 2017 - Switch releases/Early 2023 - Switch successor launches

So I'd guess Mario Kart 9 launches early 2023 exclusively for the Switch's successor.

games I'd like to see on the Switch:

Trails of cold steel 1 and 2 (never played them before, they will come out in Japan)
Super Mario Galaxy 2
2D Metroid or the Prime Trilogy
Advance Wars (dead IP but they could port the old games)
More Gamecube remastered titles
Tony Hawk, the one that came out recently

I hope Nintendo adds the entire Gameboy line to NSO. I would much rather have those than N64, because they seem to have generally aged better, and I haven’t played nearly as many of them.

Hollow Knight for Smash!

@Grumblevolcano Yeah, no way in hell Nintendo is waiting 6 years to release the next main entry in this series, doubly so when the last main entry was a port. That would be the longest drought in series history, and by far the longest in recent history where they've regularly released 3 years like clockwork for the last 15 years.

Mario Kart 9 in 2021/2022 and Mario Kart 10 in 2024/2025. There's no reason whatsoever why Mario Kart 9 needs to be reserved for the successor's launch.

@Bolt_Strike If Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is selling so well, why would they put the effort into making a new one? Mario Kart has always been a one-per-system game, so I don't see why Nintendo would change that now.

I think that Mk Tour and MK live are really more marketing tools for a big launch for MK9. This could be an absolutely huge seller, both with software and systems.

I can’t see another mariokart coming on switch. We did just get mario kart live home circuit and last year that mobile mariokart game.
