@JaxonH Out of everyone, they were the most successful during the lockdown periods. I'm sure they know what they are doing during the chip shortage period. Anyone have a forecast when this is due to end btw?

After this awful year where AAA gaming barely existed, I feel 100% that it is correct in every way for Nintendo to take as long as possible to release a proper Switch successor. I think it will come out at holiday 2024 at the earliest, and I genuinely want it to launch later than that. Barring incredibly unexpected and strange circumstances happening, I'm not changing my mind on this.

@Grumblevolcano
It would be a cross gen release though. They won't leave the installbase behind obviously. Releasing Splatoon 3 later would be a smarter move.

@GrailUK some said it would end when lockdowns stoped, which it didn't. Others said it would be in 2021 or 2022, it also didn't happen. And now most say the shortage will end in 2023 or 2024. But at this point i don't know what to believe lol

Well, it's getting better. The crypto collapse has helped ease demand for GPUs, and the supply chain shortage and drop in customer demand for cars due to the economy has limited how many automobiles are being made, which also helps lighten the squeeze. They're expanding chip manufacturing but that won't be ready until 2024 at the earliest. Still, it is improving.

@JaxonH
Supply of most of the good that were restricted are coming back. COVID itself is still causing issues in China economically but not really anywhere else. Then additionally we're in an inflationary environment globally which reserves are trying to control. When that eventually bites demand will tank for things like cars, GPUs and high end consoles

Next year could well be a perfect storm for new hardware from Nintendo. They're a budget form of entertainment and next year will see less supply constraints while people are suddenly looking budget entertainment. I could see a new Pro SKU priced like the OLED and a price cut doing very well indeed

I mean the world will be on fire but still.....

Random thought, but I could see the only Nintendo related announcement at the Game Awards being a Goldeneye shadow drop on NSO, though that's technically a Microsoft announcement.

That's quite a list of games. But do any of them appeal to you?

@IceClimbers I think if Goldeneye ends up being present, it'll be presented as if it's a Xbox exclusive kind of like what was done with Persona. Then the Switch version release date is a tweet.

I think the biggest announcement which specifically mentions Switch in the trailer will be the next Sunbreak update tease with us finding out what Elder Dragon is coming.

Update 1 - August 10th
Update 2 - September 29th
Update 3 - November 24th
Update 4 - Winter
Update 5 - Spring

Update 4 in January and Update 5 in March sounds about right from the current schedule.

I assume Nintendo won't have much of a presence at The Game Awards.

Maybe the next MK8 booster course DLC wave which is due December 7th.

That, or a sizzle reel of recently release Switch games. Bleh.

@Magician the only presence for Nintendo at TGA 2022 i assume they gonna do is Nintendo Switch have games, they will not do nothing major at the event, so don't expect a Legend of Zelda Tears of the Kingdom trailer or Metroid Prime 4 to showcase in the event, Nintendo hate to share attention with others games and companies(they want all it attention for themself, that why they are doing a Nintendo Direct just to show the second trailer of the Mario movie, they could have waited until TGA to show the trailer).

Golf finally being out for Switch Sports is great.

New Final Fantasy VII Crisis Core trailer looks pretty good, btw.

Fire Emblem: Three Hopes is $28 on Amazon atm. Don't see the game going for much less in the future, so if you're keen on grabbing it, now is probably a good time.

The Front Mission remake is out right? I can't seem to find a review anywhere, I guess that is a bad sign? I am gonna catch a flight in a couple of hours though so kinda tempted to grab it for the flight.
