So teases began pouring in. Gearbox teased BL2 (possibly for Switch, maybe BL3 too?) And Behemoth teased Castle Crashers. This is going to be a super exciting PAX weekend, I expect even more surprises.

I am not familiar with the Borderlands series so can someone explain to me why people assume Gearbox's latest tease is a Borderlands 2 port for the Switch?
Based on the thread the tease is from, it's the fact that they're using a promotional photo (the pixelated one) from BL2 (2012) and that you can already play BL2 on all current consoles and PC. So this can either be a switch release or a VR release.

Sorry do you have a link for the BL2 tease?
We have a thread on this. Game is literally everywhere, including Vita and VR. It's coming to either Switch or... mobile? Definitely Switch.

It's already available for PSVR. I have it and it's awesome. Only platforms left for BL2 is Switch, 3DS and Mobile. Idea of BL2 on last two is laughable.

This is the second time I've seen you post something like this. What makes you an expert on what people want or don't want exactly?
To be fair, for a character action game like DMC, a higher framerate is ideal. I know I wouldn't want to be playing Bayonetta at 30FPS. Maybe some people would be okay with something like that, but it's definitely far from ideal.

I'd be curious to see what would have to be done to get DMCV running on Switch at 60FPS... if it's even possible.

Exactly, it’s similar to how you wouldn’t want to play a fighting game at anything below 60fps. As far as I’m concerned, if Capcom can’t get DMC5 running at a mostly-stable 60fps on the Switch, then porting the game is not worth the effort.

Crazier things have happened in the past. I'm gonna replay DMCV at 30 fps now. Hopefully I won't spontaneously combust, thanks for the concern.

I'm thinking we could see a dedicated Smash Direct about the 3.0 Update, at the earliest, in a week or two. But I wouldn't be surprised if it didn't come until early April.

What say you, Nintendo-Era?
I agree. I think Nintendo is going to dedicate a small Smash Direct to Joker gameplay, new modes for 3.0, and a character reveal pretty soon and do a general Direct in May ahead of E3.

I feel like it depends on when 3.0 comes out. I'm confident we'll get info on 3.0 before it releases, but if 3.0 isn't coming out until, like, the very last week of April for instance I don't see 3.0 being detailed anytime soon.

Just to be clear, one of the games that i was talking about being revealed in March got hinted and not fully revealed.

I think its a winter 2019/ Q1 2020 game so it should be fully revealed on a later date.
So you think this one won't be revealed in March now?

Any kind of ball park on how many games might be revealed by the end of this month? Anything big?

Honestly feel the DMC HD collection trailer will be dropped anytime now on YouTube randomly like dragons dogma and not in a direct.
I think it's part of their second half of 2019 Switch lineup. My guess for the whole thing: DMC Collection, DMC4, RE5, MH Next (though this might be Japan only first, localization later, maybe in 2020), Onimusha 2.

I think they'll bring all the "remasters" they have brought to PS4/Xbox One. So I expect both Dead Risings and USF4 in the future too. Maybe in 2020.

Am not sure about the bold, since the start of March there is like more than 10+ games announced thus far and there are still more to come.

By the end of March there will be about 20+ games announced for the switch which is a great number and way better support from third partys, better games are yet to be announced.

I'm guessing you know what these games are, can you give any hints on which developers are going to announce Switch games this month?

We got four so far, 2 Sniper Elite games, 2 NISA localizations (I want to ignore Alliance Alive though, I hated that game on 3DS) and bunch of indies. We also got one re-release announcement: Attack of Titan 2: Final Battle, which is a Game+DLC pack.

And there are couple of hints about future: Borderlands 2, Castle Crashers (this is a indie but a big indie), Sonic and Monster Hunter. I think the biggest and hypest reveal will be Monster Hunter.

I think Persona 5 reveal is coming next month with Joker Smash reveal.

Another "it could drop anytime now" type of announcement is Spyro. They have recently reduced the gigantic file size on PS4 and that's a good indication that they are actually working on a port.

Wonder when Ori will be revealed. My most anticipated port.

If Microsoft talks about Xbox Live on Switch at GDC (if that's still happening), Ori would be the perfect game to demonstrate it. If not, then E3 at either Nintendo's or Microsoft's conference would be a good place to reveal Ori for Switch.

COD is always revealed in May.
