  1. Nintendomination!!!!!!

    Detective pichachu ..is a flop tho…. that’s too bad.

  2. Just further proof that the low sales of these Wii U games were the fault of the Wii U itself.

  3. I need a Zelda reveal at E3 (I am not talking about an open world one. I am talking about a 2D one or one inspired by Ocarina and Majora’s Mask.)

    1. There is that rumor of a new Zelda 3DS game that is said to be a 2D remake of a 2D Zelda game.

      1. I remember that Greezo said something about “make a legend” a few months ago. Perhaps they are making a remake of a 2D Zelda.

        1. Stereoscopic 3D makes more use of top-down & side-scrolling games with 3D graphics then the Switch monochromatic 2D. Besides, they’re making a 4DS which its Hardware they say they just finish making, so we still have one more generation of 2 systems until that patent Nintendo filed for detachable screens become a thing for the Switch/4DS/Wii U successor. All 8K HD TVs will be glasses-free 3D, so its safe to say that so will the Switch/4DS successor.
