@VoidofLight where they gonna basis the second game story? out of thin air? did you forgot the first game and movie was based on the same plot, without the second Detective Pikachu movie , it make no sense to release Detective Pikachu 2(game).

i like HD Rumble.

@VoidofLight Since when has not being a need for a sequel ever stopped Hollywood cashing in on easy sequels?

@Giancarlothomaz Did you uh play the game? It's a very obviously cliff hanger and TPC confirmed they're still making the game. The movie was loosely based on the game.

@FragRed Honestly though lol. But yeah they did cancel it, they're still doing the live-action Netflix series for all we know. I could see them maybe reviving Detective Pikachu 2 (the movie) if the game sells well and has an easy enough plot.

Games I'm playing right now:
Kingdom Hearts 2 - PS4
Xenoblade Chronicles 3 - Switch
Ace Attorney Trilogy - Switch
Zelda 1 - Switch Online
Majora's Mask 3D - 3DS

If the next direct is a fire emblem one I will lose my mind. because they keep releasing more fire emblem games where the characters actually commit war crimes, while advance wars still hasn’t come out yet

I fear no man
but that thing:
The carrot minigame from bowser's inside story
it scares me

@Giancarlothomaz Just told you the original game ends on a cliffhanger, with Detective Pikachu 2’s story being a continuation of the original game.

@FragRed Since they’d have to try to get the rights from Gamefreak/Nintendo, who also have to okay the film?

So we're upon The Game Awards today. Lets keep our expectations in check. I can't wait for the Switch "recent releases sizzle reel". Woo!

Switch Physical Collection - 1,082 games (as of January 30th, 2023)

At least Geoff Keighley has said that tonight's ceremony will be closer to two hours in length rather than the near three hours it had usually been. I assume he'll be blitzing straight through the lesser awards, mainly the eSports stuff. Fire off three category winners in less than a few minutes or something.

So no Tears of the Kingdom trailer/footage, but Nintendo did unveil that Bayonetta story-book game and show off some Super Mario movie footage. They also won a few awards as well - more than I expected TBH.

Looking at the timing of the reveal trailers for Switch hardware and the next earnings report after it, it looks like if there's new hardware alongside TotK then it's being announced before February 7th (which is a Tuesday):

  • Switch - Teaser trailer October 20th 2016, upcoming earnings report October 26th 2016
  • Switch Lite - Reveal July 10th 2019, upcoming earnings report July 30th 2019
  • Switch OLED - Reveal July 6th 2021, upcoming earnings report August 5th 2021

All the reveals are closer to the upcoming earnings report than the previous earnings report. I'm going with February 1st/2nd for my prediction, that's also just after the NSO Expansion Pack 2x Gold Points offer for everything on the eshop ends.

@Grumblevolcano When you say new hardware, do you mean a limited edition Zelda OLED (yummy!) or something that is an actual upgrade?

@GrailUK Something like a more powerful Switch. I'd guess the idea is that shareholders panic when there's unexplained projection drops so if there is a more powerful Switch in May alongside TotK, Nintendo's hardware projections will drop to take account of people waiting for it. Announcing the more powerful Switch before the earnings report would mean projection drops have a clear reason.

@Grumblevolcano I better start saving up. A more powerful Switch could be expensive; the original one hasn't even come down in price yet lol.

@Grumblevolcano New Switch Hardware isn't happening until 2024 at he earliest. At least, I hope. I don't want to have to buy a new console when I just got a faulty steamdeck for Christmas, and then an OLED for my birthday during the summer, just so I can play TotK like it's advertised.
