  1. What is Nintendo ‘s plan? They don’t make sequels immediately, there is no Switch Pro, two powerful systems are coming out, there is no direct and Nintendo just acts like they can sell this console without making games.

    I’m curious how is Switch going to maintain 3rd party support once the developers move to Series X and PS5?

    Excuse my language but what the fuc is their plan?

    1. Their plan? Their plan is Animal Crossing, Breath of the Wild 2, Shin Megami Tensai, Bayonetta 3, Metroid Prime 4, Bravely Default 2 to name a few. There seems to be a new Switch game released daily just not from Nintendo. Just because there hasn’t been a direct doesn’t mean Nintendo doesn’t have a plan. Besides we have a pandemic happening as we speak and who’s to say that Nintendo is maybe treading lightly due to the virus issue. Maybe they feel they shouldn’t toot their horn while the world deals with this virus issue. Perhaps it’s why they are a little quite lately.

      1. I seen statistics
        About 115,000 sick.
        5,000 deaths and
        75,000 recovered.
        So you have a 3.7% chance drying
        And a 48% chance to recover. And people running around panicking for no reason. In 2019 the flue killed about 30,000 people with 3.5 million sick.

      2. They probably lied in 2015. He could had put that on Wii U in 2016 and gave Switch Pikmin 5. I say he didnt work on it because if he did we be playing it by now just like Yoshi Wooly world and Switch got a Sequel and jus th like Splatoon and Switch got a sequel. Virus or no virus still dont matter.

        Pikmin 2 and 3 are years apart.
        Luigi Mansion 2 and 3 are years apart.
        DK returns and Tropical Freeze are years apart.
        Metroid 3 and Metroid 4 are years.

        I need to work for Nintendo must be nice to do work every 8 years and don’t do nothing in between.

        1. Lol, ay Grunty.. you gonna play Animal Crossing though? It should tie you over till we get some news.

          I really do hope we get Pikmin 4 too though. I’d like a Metroid Prime Trilogy HD and a Pikmin Trilogy to come out especially since I missed Pikmin 2 totally and didn’t get a lot of time with 3.

    1. Why? They don’t make games but every 8 years. It’s the games that sell hardware. But since they dont make games but every 8 years soon Switch sells will decline with or without no virus. Where is Pikmin 4 that was near completion back in 2015?

      Why mention it if you dont have plans to release it? That’s stupid to mention a game you never worked on claim it is near complete and no mention of it.
