@FragRed Nicely spotted. I assumed it was a similar case to The Stretchers, in that the game is published by Nintendo, but developed by another studio, but I guess I was wrong.

@Grumblevolcano This is a good prediction, albeit one I hope isn't entirely true. Not releasing a single mainline first-party game (aside from AC:NH this year) would suck. Arms 2 would be interesting, though, as it seems they're trying to drum up interest for the franchise again.

You know what would be useful for Nintendo. If they had a nearly completed game laying around they can release with little effort. Right? RIGHT?

@Octane To be fair, if that is the case and I was Nintendo I'd hold onto that title for the holiday season. It might be a port or remaster, but I actually has the potential to outsell any other game in the series thanks to current circumstances creating a lack of competition.

My prediction for the second half of the year:

July - N/A
August - Pikmin 3
September - Mario Golf, Fighter Pack 7
October - Bravely Default II
November - Super Mario 3D World Deluxe, Pokemon DLC
December - N/A

Everything else is delayed to 2021 due to coronavirus, including NMH3.

That would be fairly disastrous for Nintendo, I think. They have to have something out there for people to get for the holidays, and I feel like 3D World isn't big enough. Bravely Default is pretty niche.

Am I the only one who thought it was bizarre how most of these games either are out today or at the end of May?

Like is late May considered their tentative date when gaming stores and the like will be open again?

Not trying to be a Debbie downer but it was a disappointment for me. I'm glad we got something. But nothing really caught my eye. I can finally try arms which is nice. The bravely default demo will be nice to try out. But yea, nothing at all for me. Glad for everyone who got some good stuff they liked tho

Tried the Bravely Default 2 demo, and the performance right out of the gate was choppy, and the textures just looked unfinished and all different resolutions. Pretty awful stuff. Hard pass.

It has been just over 200 days since Nintendo had their last full Nintendo Direct. Rumor has it that they were waiting to hold it at E3, but now E3 has been cancelled. Hopefully they will decide to have it soon, and hopefully it will contain some big releases from Nintendo and their second party developers.

@status-204, remember, they're going to be taking feedback on the demo to make it better.

Daemon X Machina was the same way. It got a rough demo early in the year, and a lot of people were prematurely turned off, even though they were using it for feedback to make the final game better. As someone who played the full game, it didn't have any of the choppiness that was present in the early demo.

Currently Playing:
Switch - Blade Strangers
PS4 - Kingdom Hearts III, Tetris Effect (VR)

@RR529 They're not going to fix the visual design this late in development I think. If they are, they should've called this a beta. A demo implies it's a representative slice of the finished product barring minor updates and refinements. This put me off buying it completely.

And Daemon X Machina looked visually identical on release, it just had slightly better performance some places, and minor quality of life changes.

I assumed it was just meant as "this will keep you busy until E3 (or not-E3), when we'll have some new stuff."

I didn't see anything like this.

The only issue I noticed was the world map textures taking a second to load, so the map very briefly looked untextured.

Everything else looked great.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

@Dezzy Yes you are right, they are clearly holding the big announcements back until when E3 was scheduled.

If Coronavirus has a major impact on the production of physical releases for the remainder of the year, I wouldn't be surprised if they decide to release some first party games as a digital now/physical later deal. In other words you would get a download code that lapses when the physical release is ready to be shipped.

Destiny, justice and retribrution will be mine.

It was a good enough direct for me. I expect they will have a full direct around when E3 usually is with some announcements for the rest I'd the year, including first party titles. I think the Arms fighter for smash and first pokemon expansion are both scheduled for June, so maybe around the same time as those.

If there is not a new first party title, it would not be a disaster for them to release a port this year. Super Mario 3D World seems like the obvious choice, but they also have the Zelda remasters (and who knows the status of the rumored Prime trilogy remaster). A lot of us have played these games, but there are many Switch owners who missed out on them.

Going by Nintendo's current release schedule, they don't need to wait until December for a lack of competition.

What better way to celebrate than firing something out of the pipe?

Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.
