    1. If Federation Force is somehow successful, expect Metroid 5 to have cute little chibi Samus and cute chibi Metroids and cute chibi Ridley. :/

  1. Supported on Windows, Linux, OS X, Xbox One, PS4, iOS, and Android…

    So this means that the NX will be on par with the Xbox One and PS4… Underpowered confirmed at this point.

    NX is doomed!!

      1. Oh I know UE5 isn’t out yet, I was just responding to that ignorant troll mrgamerclock64 who said the NX would fail because he assumes it will be only on par with current gen consoles because it’ll be using UE4. It isn’t like UE5 is around the corner or something

      1. Just remember that videogames are entertainment, entertainment is inclusive.
        This field is hard for me (not talking about my friends) because it is so difficult to please everybody, one thing that i admire about iwata is how he tried to transform videogames into something that everybody could enjoy and ironically people bashed him because of that, he understood what is entertainment but sadly he gave the back to their fan base. A friend of mine lost his arm and the Wii helped him to overcome his depression, how could it be bad! Iwata helped million of people with disabilities to enjoy videogames, that was inspiring.
        I wanted to be a game designer but after seeing that nonsense war between fans i decided not to, if you are going to be at this industry try to be original no matter what and maybe as iwata you could end helping people (it’s cheesy but anyway)
        By the way, just because i admire IATA because of that it doesn’t mean i agreed with some of his choices but let’s remember him for his good actions.
