  1. This is exactly what Nintendo wants . Release a game that Sony and Microsoft doesnt care about. It is to make it look as if Nintendo doesnt have any plans when PS5 and Series X debut. It looks that way because Nintendo has not mentioned no tittles in a long time like Metriod, BoW 2. They know what the hell they doing. I also believe they have a plan with the Switch then answers of how is 3rd party support going to continue to support the Switch when those powerful Systems come out? Will those consoles affect the Switch sales momentum? They have the answer. Another answer is how is this going to affect the 50million install base when majority are not going to buy the console upgrade?

    I believe Meteoid Prime 4 and Bayonetta 3 and Pikmin. 4 are done and are just sitting in R&D waiting for Nintendo’s right time to debut them.

    I also think they working on a new DK tittle and 3D Mario. I also believe they already have Gamefreak working on next Pokemon.

    1. 2 points.

      Point 1: How can you be so sure that everything is going according to a brilliant master plan by Nintendo, Nintendo who made the Wii U and Nintendo who buried the last 2 years of the Wii’s life with virtually zero support and a fervant belief that Wii Music was a good idea? I love ’em, but these guys are FAAAAAR FAAAAAAAAAR from perfect businessmen.

      Point 2: How on earth can Metroid Prime 4 be done when it was scrapped and restarted from scratch less than a year ago?

    2. And no one would like to buy, except females and some Nintendo supporter ah. I understand the value of Nintendogs (people lacking love), this… not really.

  2. Nintendo is up to something
    Something big, something suprising, something nasty something tasty something great, something sharp, something I dont know what it is yet.

    They want it to look like theybaint doing nothing when Sony and Microsoft debut………bullshit

  3. This is Nintendo we talking about. They same company that started the Rumble pak. The same company that started the 4 player mode
    The same company that started the motion sensor. The same company that started a racing game with characters and items to target rivals to make them fall behind. The same company that had a unique fighting game. The samencomapny that started a console hybrid.

    The same company that saved the video game industry.

    Nintendo. They up to something. Tomorrow is February. T

  4. If it wasnt for Super Mario 64 there wouldnt be no Banjo-kazooie

    There wouldnt be no DK64.

    Nintendo is up to something. They releasing a game people dont care about on purpose and holding the games likenPikmin 4 and Bayonetta 3 and Metroid Prime 4 and BOW2 on purpose with no info. No screenshots.

    They are doing this on purpose

    1. “They releasing a game people don’t care about on purpose ” not to be rude but have you been living under a rock, because the Animal Crossing is actually more popular than Pikmin and Bayonetta, (not to mention it sales more than pik and bay )it was praticaly the main thing on trending at e3 last year, I honestly don’t need to pull up any possible evidence cause you can see from tweets to youtube that this game is on the hype factor, I still think bay and pik are still great games tho, in my book. I honestly will never understand why people bash games so hard for others because it’s not there cup of tea.
