Isn't 2020 a little too soon for a new Zelda 3D?

I mean:
2006 - TP
2011 - SS
2017 - BotW
If they use the same engine, largely the same assets and focus mainly on dungeon building, side quests and world building it's totally possible.

I think the biggest development/time cost in BOTW was getting their physics engine and the open air concept down.

So if all the games rumored for 2019 are true....what series are left for 2020? Just curious.

Paper Mario, Bayonetta, Pikmin...

I guess we could get a new BOTW Zelda, Mario Odyssey 2 or a new Mario Kart....but what franchises am I missing?

I have to imagine preproduction on a sequel was started alot earlier than we think, considering it was originally targeting a 2015 date, then delayed further for the switch day and date.

It’s not the fastest selling Nintendo game ever, it’s the fastest selling Nintendo home console game ever.

Sun/Moon still have Ultimate beat at 14.xx million units in its first quarter.
Oh, thanks for that correction, but Smash's sales hadn't even been recorded for a month at that point. That's also not talking into consideration the age and install base of both the 3DS and Switch. They're very hard to compare.

I think the next goal will be to make original games for each franchise that has been ported. Such as mario kart, dkc, 2d mario, etc. There are a lot of games still to be made, especially if you don’t include the wii u ports.

EDIT: Also, the rumored games are to be announced this year, not necessarily released.

Nope, it will be 3.5 years (will probably be a 2020 holiday title) and Aonuma said that he wanted to put out zelda games faster.
Also, all that games had troubled developements that caused multiple delays. (I even have a theory that BOTW got rebooted in 2015 lol, but thats another story)

Mario & Sonic at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, 2D Metroid, Wii Fit/Brain Training/Wii Sports, Style Savvy, Nintendogs, a Pokemon remake (DPPt please), Captain Toad 2, Tomodachi Life/Miitopia, Sushi Striker 2, Monolith's medieval action game, WarioWare, Rhythm Heaven, Fatal Frame, Mario Golf, Yo-Kai Watch 4/Bravely/Hyrule Warriors 2 western publishing, new IP.

EDIT: Not suggesting next ywar would have all those + what you said, just some possibilities.

Breath of the Wild's physics engine took some time to develop. There is no exact data around AFAIK but it seems like it took almost half of development time just developing the engine. I guess making a new one wouldn't really be worth it right now. I'm personally interested in what kind of Zelda style are they going to go for next. Return of the Toon Link? Young Link? Keeping Cell shaded Link? New one?

I wonder if they will be able to get close or even reach this kind of fidelity on the next game with a Switch only title or on a possible Switch Pro version:




I don't think so but I might be wrong!

2020 doesn't seem unlikely like a Zelda delay doesn't seem unlikely LOL

I've been holding out for the Switch version. Curious how well it'll perform though given how much it's got going on.
True. I honestly don't know which version to go with haha! I'd be fine with either to be honest!
so true but yet i don't think crash team racing has been announced for pc yet.
Oh dang you're right! I was gonna get that one for Switch anyways but you have a point about no PC version.

Hold on, are there rumours about a new Paper Mario returning to its roots?

If so, I'm not sure I could handle the hype.
No no no, please dont get your hopes up

Keyword in my post was chance

Still though, they made 3D Mario open and explorative again, and they made Mario Party a board game again as well. There’s a tiny glimmer of hope that Nintendo may be thinking the same way for the Paper Mario series, after the giant backlash that came with Color Splash’s reveal

Pretty sure they always want to get them out faster, but that team consistently takes their time.

Sure, but....none of those are that big of titles....not one of those you mentioned are on the level of Fire Emblem, Luigi's Mansion, Smash, Pokemon, Animal Crossing, Mario Maker, etc at least in terms of expected sales.

Looking at this, the main differences from the final version seem to be the draw distance and texture quality. Given the game started on the Wii U and the base Switch not only has more modern hardware, but over 3x the useable RAM, maybe?
 
What will be gen 8s major battle system change?

Gen 2 had items
3 abilties
4
The split
5 dream world abilities
Gen 6 mega
7 z moves


I propose gen 8 adds weapons Pokemon can hold

Weapons will change the stats of Pokemon, abilties, typing, and have special attacks

This is a joke btw

First made this joke in the cnintendo discord

Tomodachi, Nintendogs are still bigger than Fire Emblem, Mario & Sonic may be too on a successfull console like Switch

Monolithsoft has probably 2 games in development. That would make a fine lineup with Mario, Zelda, Bayo, Paper Mario, etc.

Gen 8 Pokemon will have the ability to call in Pokemon strictly from Gen 1 to help them out in battle.

This is a joke lol

Gen 8 will allow for Pokémon to hold other Pokémon.

I did have several potential multi-million sellers in there (including a Pokemon game) but presumably a new BOTW Zelda & Mario Odyssey 2 could be real possibilities for next year too, as you said so I didn't mention them. They would be the "big" titles.

By year 4 I think you can start to rely on ever greens while outputting a sprinkling of niche titles and a few tentpoles.

Switch in 2020 could get 3D Mario, 3D Zelda, Metroid 5, Paper Mario, Pokémon DP Remake, Bayo 3, Monolith's new IP, Mario & Sonic, Mario Golf, Kirby, Bravely Third and EPD new IPs.

Monolith's new IP could be huge, fantasy action RPGs sell like hot cakes
