  1. Since there is no Switch Pro, is Nintendo going to just make then release a ton of AAA games to keep momentum of sales about 100K a week in Japan? When PS5 comes out this is going to be interesting.

    Nintendo has no choice but to bring forward AAA tittles.

    1. Gruntilda that is a win win for we the gamers. Also the fact that for some Xbox two decade reason. They won’t have console exclusives for the Xbox x series for two years. That gives Nintendo room to make games of the amazing scale. Hopefully Sony makes exclusives too. Competition breeds greatness.


  2. Nintendo ‘Leave luck to heaven’ is blessed, as it’s meaning. The Switch sold how many in the first week of February again? EA is scrambling and backtracking on their nonsense. Now putting games on the Switch. Congratulations to we the gamers on every great system. Sorry guys I have been failing to post for a few weeks. My Nintendo news has been rejecting my comments like Sony fans used to reject Nintendo’s amazing IPs. Now they are buying Switches in bundles.


      1. Thank you 🙏 my Nintendo news admin. I have posted for years. One of the original posters. This makes me happy. Stay blessed safe and happy everyone. This is a great hobby, gaming that is. We sometimes are of the Wii era euphoria of fighting for Nintendo and reminding the world of amazing games like red steel 2 existing; one forgets to turn it off sometimes and just enjoy gaming.
