@Bolt_Strike a 3D Donkey Kong game with some beat up elements might work or not, this rumored Donkey Kong game not be another Donkey Kong 64, is a plus to everyone.

i like HD Rumble.

@VoidofLight I doubt that, look at the number of other RPGs releasing around the same time or the numerous instances of similar games being released around the same time. Releasing multiple games at similar times isn't as detrimental to sales at it was in the past. I'm certain Stories 2 will sell at least half a million given the amount of promotion.

As for a game selling well despite minimal effort, well, just look at Pokemon. Franchising goes a long way.

@DannyBoi it depends on the longevity of its "family of systems". If there is not a meaningful pro model I would expect it to finish in the 120-130M

@DannyBoi @Balta666 Software sales are already way ahead. after 4 years the PS2 had sold 350m games, as of December (so 3 years and 9 months into the Switch life) it has sold 532m games. Admittedly, the eshop and indies (to a degree) weren't a thing on the PS2.

@MarioBrickLayer I am assuming @dannyboi was talking hardware sales as ps2 is the best selling console of all time. As you mention it is not fair to compare it software wise as people buy more games nowadays (also by those standards PS4 is the one to beat)

Since Nintendo will be present at E3, I don't think we will see another direct in May

With the exception of last year (coivd) they have pretty much always done a mini/indie/showcase/special Direct in May even though E3 is coming. No one is expecting a proper full fat Direct until E3.

@anoyonmus

It depends on what Nintendo intends to show at E3. We could get a Partner Showcase in May or E3 could be the unofficial partner showcase if there isn't much first party stuff ready to be shown. But...we'll see.

@DannyBoi in japan or worldwide?, japan yes, but worldwide depend if Nintendo keep the amazing suport of Switch, Switch might end with 120/135 milions consoles sold or more at the end of it lifecycle.

@FragRed

I really wish Konami want to port their DDR A20+ to Nintendo Switch / PS4.
I'm only interested by BEMANI games from Konami.

Most people don't know this for some reason, but one time a few years ago, Konami failed to show up then too. Except they never told anyone. They were supposed to have an early morning event, and then it just didn't happen, for no reason.

Didn't realize Konami was still actually making real games to be honest.

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

Man, Nintendo are desperate to sell the switch(I'm referencing the 30 million switches Nintendo are making for this year). It's not like they aren't selling enough to begin with.

@DannyBoi bear in mind the report talks about producing up to 30M and not that they expect them to sell that much. With all the problems in hardware manufacturing atm they may be trying to speed up the process by ordering in bigger bulk
