@Grumblevolcano Nah that's TTYD's release date, doubt Nintendo would allow that. Zelda movie is likely to get it's own presentation, or at least a presentation from Nintendo.

I guess it's probably slightly before TTYD's official release, but I still don't think it's likely.

Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, Super Mario RPG, and Mario & Luigi Brothership all on one console is LEGENDARY

Less than a month away from Nintendo outlining their Summer / Fall release schedule

Still holding hope for a Xenoblade Chronicles X Switch port, the last game I do not want lost on the Wii U.

I mean...Fatal Frame Maiden of Black Water was rescued, for crying out loud.

Switch Physical Collection - 1,260 games (as of June 15th, 2024)

I bought XCX right before the closure, so I'd be way too tempted to buy it again on switch. For that reason, part of me hopes it stays on wii u, but that's a selfish personal problem.

So... We know of 7 Nintendo games this year and a massive 5 of them involve Mario characters. I wonder what the record is? If they keep up that pace, we can expect 3 more Marioverse games this year 😝 What could they be?

  • Mario Wonder DLC - medium-likelihood.
  • Mario sportball or a smaller one such as Mario and Sonic - seems possible.
  • 3D Mario or Mario Kart - definitely no.
  • Captain Toad? Seems more likely it would be on Switch 2 but conceivable.
  • Mario and Luigi? Seems unlikely since we have had so many rpgs in a row but there have been some (likely false) rumours.
  • Yoshi? Seems unlikely since Peach just came out from the usual suspect devs.
  • Mario Party? It is about time for one by the usual release schedule, although I feel like that would take away profits from Nintendo World Championship (although they treated Everybody 1-2 Switch like that last year by ignoring it and promoting Warioware).
  • Warioland sumthin? That would be a surprise but would be neat.
  • Some port of one or more of the New Super Mario games? Plausible if Wonder has no DLC.
  • Rhythm Heaven with Mario characters?? We can wish.
  • Mario Warriors? 😝

Ok, I'm out of ideas.

@FishyS
I'd like to see Wario Land or Rhythm Heaven and I think they're a fair shout. But I also feel like I've been saying I'd like to see one or the other just about every year for almost ten years. At the very least since they put out MegaMix on 3DS literally days after releasing the Switch and I thought "that's a nice compilation, I hope they port it to Switch, they probably will, I'll wait"

MegaMix is probably going to end up being the last of the Rhythm Heaven titles. The main music director for the series can no longer sing after they had to remove his vocal chords a few years back. Most likely why the series is missing in recent years.

I just want metroid prime 2 remastered with the same details as prime 1. I'm fine waiting for three if it means we get the whole trilogy looking like new games instead of just an upscaled port of the wii trilogy.

So.. Prime 4 in 2026? 🤔 It will be interesting to see what they do with 2... seems likely it will be in the June Direct one way or another.

I see almost everybody talking and wishing for the old Nintendo IP like Donkey Kong, Metroid, another 3D Mario, Zelda, etc for Switch.
Me personally still looking for more 3rd party games that might be I have new interest about.

I just want to see for once Mario Boxing / Kickboxing.
Come on, Nintendo can provide cartoonish boxing games from Wii Sports and ARMS, it should be easy to make another cartoonish boxing games on Switch.

Also, instead of Rhythm Heaven, why don't DDR Nintendo edition or something like Beatmania IIDX ?

Maybe I’m wrong but it could be possible that this is a Nintendo direct thread and most people like speculating about Nintendo first party games they’d like on the Nintendo direct thread. Again, maybe I’m wrong

We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

@Anti-Matter I still think Arms 2 will come out on Switch 2, so maybe we will hear about it next year.

Hopefully a Mother/ Earthbound compilation will be announced in the upcoming Direct to celebrate Earthbound’s 30th anniversary.

It's interesting how NSO Expansion Pack hasn't gotten its monthly game announcement yet. I still think it'll be Metroid Zero Mission for May but considering what's happened the past few weeks, it definitely seems more like a sole announcement rather than as part of a big Metroid push (June Direct being the big Metroid push instead). We know a June Direct is coming, we know our July game and Nintendo's treating TTYD as a major release.

I am expecting a somewhat Metroid focused Direct. Shadow-drop of Prime remaster(s), Zero Mission announcement and possibly Samus Returns HD with Prime 4 closing Direct. Then perhaps something like a new DK game or Mario & Sonic Olympics.

And from 3rd party stuff: Ace Combat 7 presentation, Turbo Overkill, Phantom Fury, Blade Chimera and Laika.

@Grumblevolcano didn't we get those three Gameboy releases this month? Or are you referring to the next batch of games released?

@ElRoberico I'm talking about the Expansion Pack specific content:

  • Base NSO - NES, SNES, GB, GBC
  • NSO Expansion Pack - N64, Mega Drive/Genesis, GBA

Every month since the Expansion Pack began in October 2021 has had retro games added to that tier which weren't in the base NSO tier except November 2021, July 2023 and November 2023. Those 3 months did get DLC which weren't in the base NSO tier though (Happy Home Paradise, Booster Course Pass wave 5 and Booster Course Pass wave 6 respectively).

So from that and months mostly alternating between N64 and GBA, it's a safe guess that NSO Expansion Pack will get a GBA game next week.

@Grumblevolcano Ohhhhh that makes a lot more sense. What else are we missing from the announced GBA titles? Are there any new N64 titles confirmed either?
