  1. Animal Crossing (Doubutsu no Mori) hoards nothing but greatness. I see no reason why it doesn’t deserve the number one spot. This game orinally made a debut for N64. It’s amazing how it survived and will even make it to Switch. Nice!

    1. Considering the fact Japan absolutely HATED Pokemon LGEP by bombarding it with the most negative reviews that Amazon’s Japanese site had to disable reviews for it, the fact that the developers at Game Freak have stated “developing for Switch is 5 times harder” and the fact Japan has always had plenty of other monster collecting RPG genre of games to play that they love hugely such as Shin Megami Tensei and Yo-Kai Watch, it’s hardly surprising they aren’t looking forward to it as much as other things.

  2. And yet we know absolutely nothing about most of the big name titles on this list, like Fire Emblem or Luigi’s Mansion.

    Some kind of Direct that tells us more is kinda mandatory at this point, I would say.
