new Donkey Kong game

I have no reason to think this other than it makes sense to me, but what if the new Donkey Kong game was a new Mario + Donkey Kong 3D game? Nate the Hate and MVG have speculated that a new 3D Mario game will be released at Christmas as a tie in to the movie. Donkey Kong is also in the movie, if he's in it a lot maybe having a game with him and Mario would be a better aligned to the movie?!

Plus the Donkey Kong game is supposed to be in development with the Mario 3D team...

Pure speculation on my part, but it has the potential to be amazing!

I personally don't need one until around April, but I do hope there is one next month to keep the Nintendoomed folks sated.

@Ryu_Niiyama I could go longer than April! I have two backlogs, one is the games I own but haven't played yet and the other is a list of games I want to buy!! I could go the whole year without any new games being announced!

@MarioBrickLayer I'm likely in the same boat as I'm past the 500 mark on owned games and I have an RPG addiction...but I like to see news flowing for a number of reasons.

Man, I know Samurai making a Meteos sequel is a joke, but I'd absolutely love that. Not as much as a Kid Icarus sequel, but still.

With the new Mario movie coming at the end of the year, I am wondering whether Nintendo will release a game to coincide with its launch. I’m not saying it’ll be revealed in the next Direct but Nintendo does want something Mario every year and this movie will be perfect for a big new release.

I'm in a glass half empty mood. They sack Charles Martinet to have Chris Pratt voice him in the new game and Mario is remodelled to look more Chris Pratt-ish but his lines are still pidgin English plus are made even worse by having it be more Minions like to fit in with the new movie. In the current mood of the zeitgeist the game is a meta crossover with Mario in the Minions and other Illumination films.

@jump Wow, that would be the first major Mario game I've skipped, ever. And I even played NSMB2.

That said, knowing Nintendo? They'll just release whatever game was going to release anyways and pay lip service that it's a movie tie-in.

Opinion: There's already 15 Mario games on the Switch (3 released each year), we don't need a movie tie-in. The current catalog still sells month after month.

@nitrolink Nintendo did say they want a Mario and Zelda game every single year. So expect plenty more to come. It’s their biggest cash cow.

@NinChocolate I commented in that thread too!!

@nitrolink You make a good point, but Mario is Nintendo's main franchise, the games always sell well and the opportunity to sell a game alongside the movie seems to make marketing sense? maybe a way to attract new Switch buyers, maybe parents take their kids to see the film who don't have a Switch and end up getting one to get this game?

A NSMB collection or Galaxy 2 port would fit best if there was a mainline Mario this year, 3D Mario has gotten a lot recently with 3D All Stars and 3D World but Galaxy 2 was oddly absent from 3D All Stars. Meanwhile 2D Mario has been absent for awhile (NSMBU Deluxe and Mario Maker 2 in 2019 but the latter stopped being supported nearly a year ago).

Huh, it's Nintendo, @MarioBrickLayer .... Watch them try to make ALL the Mario games on Switch tie into the movie! "You've seen the film, now here's the games ......"

It's so exciting, Legends Arceus is only 2 days away which means Direct could be next week.

@Grumblevolcano

Hasn't February 21st been the date all the tinfoil hat folk have been pointing towards?
