    Smash is long overdue. I think we will hear about it soon.

    My main hope besides 3DS stuff is that they add a Subspace-like campaign mode. It would be really cool to see the caharacters interact with each other.

    Does Emily mean third party exclusives or ports for this year?

    I don't care when it comes out as long as they reveal it soon. It's been almost five years since they revealed their last game. That's... ridiculous. My thinking is that if it was a new IP, they would have revealed it by now. If it's say, a 3D Donkey Kong game, they won't reveal it until after the Tropical Freeze port comes out, which is in May—curiously, one month before E3.
     
  4. Imagine if Retro's next game comes out after Prime 4 >_>

    When a Retro made Prime 4 could have been done by late 2016 and released like mid 2017.

    Here's what I expect:
    -Great Plateau Stage
    -New Donk City Stage
    -Splatoon Stage
    -Some (not all) 3DS stages
    -BoTW costumes for Link and Zelda
    -Splatoon rep
    -(maybe) Arms rep + stage
    -Ice Climbers
    -Smash Run

    Which honestly wouldn't be an insignificant amount of new content but it would still be the Wii U version at its base.

    What if Retro's game is a 3D DK "pirate" game....but you play as the Kremlins!

    Like imagine you can play as a customizable Kremlin, and form a party or go solo to lead raids on DK country. You gotta get through hordes of other monkeys and the bosses you fight are DK and his crew.

    I'm excited for Mario Tennis Aces. Maybe they could do some kind of remake of Golden Sun in the future.
     
  8. It's crazy we're coming up on the 4 year anniversary of TF next month!

    I mean he has a point. People need to understand that as long as Nintendo is funding and publishing these games, their futures are ultimately Nintendo's decision.

    HD Animal Crossing Christmas makes me hyped through the roof. I love that season on the game. Still holding out hope it's happening this year.

    He's definitely super annoyed that people are still asking. I guess with Bayonetta 3 on the horizon these questions will pop up again.
     
  17. My predictions (first party) for the second half of 2018 and into 2019.

    2018:
    Yoshi
    Fire Emblem
    Labo stuff
    NSMB and/or Smash ports.
    Pokemon Switch (I really think they are going to try to push to get it out this year)
    Retro Studios game (I still think it's a new IP).

    2019:
    Bayonetta 3
    Prime 4
    Pikmin 4
    Animal Crossing

    etc.

    I hope it is Animal Crossing Switch because this is the year for Animal Crossing. AC, NSMBU, Fire Emblem, Smash, Yoshi, Retro’s game would be great for the second half.

    I know most people don't care about that or even actively dismiss it, but I hope the new Smash Bros comes with its own Capcom Tour of sorts and go big on the e-sport aspect. It doesn't have to be obnoxious, just go for the same vibe you get for the tournaments at E3, just regularily throughout the year. The Smash community is vibrant and getting bigger, and obviously Nintendo is thinking about it considering the way they introduced Splatoon during the Switch reveal...

    Of all the games to port the least believable is NSMBU.

    Like at least pick something unique like Rainbow Curse or Wonderful 101.

    I guess I'm late here but in regards to Smash Bros. I agree with Emily. I don't think we'll have a long turn-over period either, this will definitely be the shortest time from reveal to release so boy those will be some exciting weeks haha.

    If Smash is a port of 4 with additional content, then I expect it to release this year. In this case it won't have as much new content as a brand new release, meaning there's no need for a long announcement-to-launch period. If however it's a brand new game I don't expect it to launch this year since it's going to take them a while to announce all the new and returning characters.

    Having said that I'm leaning towards the first option.

    It’s going to be a short hype Smash hype cycle this time. There’s nothing as good as the Smash hype cycle. It was so much fun with brawl and Smash 4. I watched Gamexplain go through all the pictures. I loved it.

    Not necessarily, the average Smash development cycle is 2 and a half years and by the end of this year, it will have been 2 and a half years since the DLC ended.

    It's Nintendo's next move to appeal to a broader -- and more adult -- audience: Animal Crossing After Dark

    You're right. What I mean is that, during the Wii U/3DS hype cycle, they spent a lot of time covering every aspect of the game since nearly everything was built from the ground-up. If it's a port, they won't have to go through all that content, all those modes again. They can instead focus on what's new, like new characters and stages. That should theoretically lead to a shorter hype cycle, even if the new content is substantial.
     
  44. NantenJex

    Oh yeah, that is very true, although it could still be a new game and they just reveal more at once. Like imagine if the reveal trailer just revealed all the returning stuff from Smash For straight away (within reason) and then left the 5 month build-up to just focus on new stuff like Characters, stages, items, modes, etc
     
  45. Zalman

    They could definitely do that. I just get the sense that they like to have a long build-up for Smash games since they can drop news about it frequently. It's an easy way to get fans excited. That's why I think it's more likely to be a port if it's coming out this year, but you never know.

    It's the best 2D Mario game ever, and was hamstrung by a system with a low install base. It's a sound move to release it on Switch.
     
  47. It's not even as good as NSMB Wii.

    Nah. It’s the best of the NSMB series. It has an overworld map with secrets. It has memorable levels. The acorn power up is one of the best ever in the Mario series.

    Demonstrably false. Challenge mode. Better, more varied levels. Super Luigi mode. Multiple secret paths/exits. It's a masterpiece.

    Right, it's way better :)

    Challenge mode and the map with secrets alone puts it at the top.
