@Dogorilla I just don't see them dropping support so soon unless something is releasing soon. Why would they? Splatfests are probably barely any work for them and they increase engagement with the game.

I gotta say, I'm glad I got this physically. If Splatoon 3 is, indeed, a Switch title, there will be precious little reason to hold on to Splatoon 2, as the sequel will draw away the majority of the playerbase. I just wish the Octo Expansion was its own app/game, as I wouldn't mind replaying that on occasion.

@Ralizah Well, every Splatfest in Splatoon 2 has its own version of Shifty Station, so designing and programming a new one of those every month probably takes a not insignificant amount of work. I guess if they wanted to keep doing more Splatfests they could just reuse existing Shifty Stations, but then they'd still have to do the art and dialogue for each Splatfest, which obviously isn't as much effort but still takes time. And I think when the game was first released they said that Splatfests would only continue for a year, but then that was increased to two years.

@Ralizah Exactly what I thought, Splatoon 3 reveal either after the Splatoon 2 tournament on Saturday or during the E3 Direct.

I don't think there'll be a Splatoon 3 until Nintendo's next console launches. Even if they're not actively supporting the game any more, Splatoon 2 is the kind of game that can be played pretty much indefinitely so it would seem a bit redundant having another instalment on the same console unless it was drastically different. There's never been more than one new Mario Kart or Smash Bros game on a single console before after all.

There's some sense in that, but... arguably part of the strategy behind the MK8D and Splatoon 2 releases, plus the other Wii U ports, is that they didn't require an abundance of new ideas and creativity, leaving any innovative ideas on the back-burner for a sequel.

I don't want a MK or Splatoon sequel any time soon, but there's room for them.

@Late Gotcha. They haven't added it to the supported upcoming games list in NA yet, unfortunately.

They had this glut of online games when Switch launched, and now that NSO is active, they're killing all the online games

Though I bet AC has mandatory online features....



@Ralizah It's not in the list in Europe either but the game's actual eShop page says it's included.

Used one on Mario Maker already. Next one is probably going to be for wither Fire Emblem or Astral Chain. And I guess I need more since I want at least Pokémon and Animal Crossing too. Great deal for someone like me who likes to go digital.

I programmed a simple tool that copies all Switch screenshots from an SD card and places them to folders according to the game:

Hmm, the Switch probably won't get a port of Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines 2, but another Masquerade game was announced yesterday, coming to Switch no less. It's being developed by iFun4all, a company recently rebranded as Draw Distance.

No switch mini during Pokemon direct. September-november with animal crossing or Pokemon it is.

If a Switch Mini does release, I always expected it to launch around the same time as Pokemon. Releasing near the holidays just makes sense.

If they manage to get a $199.99 Switch out alongside Pokemon by Christmas, we're going to see some truly staggering sales numbers.



Switch revisions are the new Majora's Mask 3D (Operation Moonfall)

Where am I going! Nowhere, unless if I say otherwise!


Which collection will Switch get first?

Metroid Prime trilogy
Pikmin 1-3
Mother 1-3 (you know it's coming)

Oh my gosh. Pokémon looks insane!

I’m flabbergasted... truly. This is legitimate as they come- the “Breath of the Wild” of Pokémon. They weren’t exaggerating.

Apparently there was a leak that this Direct confirms as being correct, and there was quite a bit of information in that leak that hasn’t been shown yet. So if anyone’s interested in some more details, take a look.

  • Sword and Shield’s enemy team will be called Team Yell.
  • There will be an “evil” legendary Pokemon named Eternatus.
  • In addition to Dynamaxing, there will also be the similar Gigantimaxing, which changes a Pokemon’s appearance in addition to growing its size. Three examples given are Meowth looking like “long cat,” Lapras getting “layers like musical bars to its shell and musical notes,” and Pikachu looking like “retro fat Pikachu.”
  • “Regional evolutions” will be a thing, with Farfetch’d turning into Sirfetch’d, and Meowth looking like “a ball of spiky grey fur.” It’s unclear if this literally means evolutions or if it actually refers to regional variants like Alola.
  • Chipmunk Pokemon potentially named “Skwovet and Greedunt” will hide in berry trees, attacking players if they shake them too many times, which will cause you to lose half the berries that fell.
  • To challenge a gym leader, you need to get an endorsement (not explained), which will then let you take on a gym challenge that needs to be completed before fighting them.
  • Three gym challenges are described, including one where you have to herd Wooloo while avoiding a new Electric corgi Pokemon called Pamper, one where you navigate a maze with water blocking your path, and one where you have to catch Pokemon and “get 5 points” while in a team battle with another trainer who is also trying to catch them at the same time.
  • While in the Wild Area, you will “randomly see nearby players and interact with them to get their league cards and items.”
  • Camping will be a mechanic, and is where you will play with Pokemon. It will also let you make curry to raise stats and use toys to raise friendship.
  • Grookey’s final evolution is a giant gorilla that uses a wood drum to attack.
  • Sobble’s evolutions are called Sizzile and then Intelleon, and will have a spy-theme to them.
  • “Scorbunny will have fighting moves, but is pure fighter.” (There could be a typo in here, it reads as if it meant to say “but is pure fire” or “but isn’t pure fighter.”) Its second evolution is called Raboot, and its final evolution looks like a humanoid fighter.
  • A blue seagull Pokemon was described that will get either a “barracuda or a Pikachu” in its mouth when it dives, which it then throws at the enemy.

@JaxonH if that’s true, the first one is pretty...lame. i expected something at least a little creative, or in line with past tradition?
