Metroid series producer is interested into making a new 2D Metroid game if there will be the opportunity and if the fans are interested.

Of course the fans are interested... people have been waiting a 2D Metroid many years until Samus Return. Just make one for Switch!

No truer words have been typed by thumbs in the history of man. 2D HD Metroid on Switch is a must have. If it did well, maybe it’d convince Konami to bring us a 2D Castlevania!

This fan is interested! It's shocking that there have been no new titles in 15 years! (Longer if you consider Zero as a remake)

Bloodstained: Ritual of Night is being developed for the Switch, by IGA, formerly of Konami and creator of the "Metroidvania" style of Castlevania titles. /sub/bloodstained.

As soon as I loaded up Sonic Mania, it felt like 6 year old me was picking up the controller all over again, what an experience. Had to draw this.

yes, great work.

Love the lines and exaggerated shapes.

YEAH WELL I LIKE THE COLORS!

This looks great! ...like a sharp frame from the animated intro. Thanks for posting it here and not some filthy Sonic only related thread. /s

Using the warp tool in photoshop I was able to line a few pieces up to an exact image from the original material... Like its 1:1... So you either traced the sort art, or copy/pasted/warped straight from the source material... So I'm not really sure how this is fan art if its just a reproduction of a still from the original material...

Would you guys want a new WarioWare game for the Switch?

Would you guys want a new WarioWare game for the Switch?

None of that DIY stuff but a pure nonsense, 5 seconds to react WarioWare. Full of collectibles, nick knacks and mini-mini games. I really hope they bring the series back to the glory that was WarioWare Smooth Moves.

Edit: What would you like be added or returning elements?

A WarioWare game for the Switch would be great, IMO. Especially since it could be a good showcase of the Switch's features (like motion control, HD rumble, or even that IR camera that they (so far) barely even used).

Totally. That'd be day one for me.

could be a better version of 1-2 Switch that would appeal to Nintendo fans

Could be a version of 1-2-switch actually worth the money

Sonic Mania is #1 on best sellers

Sonic Mania is #1 on best sellers

$20 tag, highly anticipated and well reviewed. Combo for #1 best seller

It's funny that, of all things, a Sonic game is the best selling game on Nintendo's online shop. A Classic, Genesis-like Sonic game, at that. The kind of style that used to be Mario's biggest rival.

I just find it funny and a bit incredible.

You can add digital only to that.

I can't believe I paid full price for the Namco Collection. Sonic is $20 ffs. I'm a moron.

Revali is one lucky sumbitch.

It looks great, but how are Mipha swimming, Link riding his horse, and Daruk riding a Guardian? It's like the water has 3 different depths in a very small space.

Urbosas mighty thighs would crush that hawk! He'd better watch his tongue!

Guardians in deep water, Links on shallow water. Zelda was taking a picture and Mipha tripped while posing.

"[game] will determine how much [publisher] will support Nintendo Switch" – No.

"[game] will determine how much [publisher] will support Nintendo Switch" – No.

I think this idea should be distrusted far more than it currently is on this subreddit. People seem to think this is a viable way of thinking for a publisher. It's not - it's a marketing strategy meant to direct you towards buying their game. I'm annoyed with this idea on two fronts:

said publisher would be crazy not to consider the success of Switch games that other publishers published. It's as if each publisher is doing the first ever comparative test. Any publisher could just look at the comparative success of e.g. Street Fighter II for Switch, which has a port on nearly every gaming platform.

consumers (we) should not be pushed to buy a product for any other reason than to buy that product. Quality should be the only relevant variable in determining whether to buy a product. Don't reward publishers for withholding from developers the necessary development costs that go into making a quality game. Reward those that actually do put in the costs & effort.

Edit: even taking in account that genre may influence your sales, such that your game's success may be predicted with a formula such as [platform's game selling rate x production costs x genre], genre is by far not as important as those other two factors, and is therefore not a reason to make the title's claim.

That's why I won't buy games I don't want/won't play just to support these devs. We're not supposed to buy just so they release more games. If they don't want to, fine. I'll enjoy other ones for sure.

honestly it feels like a really shitty way to push games that the developer knew would undersell, "you want any of our good games? you better buy our half-assed game first"

like no thank you, let's not hold the customer hostage for developer support,

I seem to remember EA pulling this with FIFA on Vita. "Sure, this game is bare bones, but if enough people purchase it, NEXT year we'll make a really full fledged title."

"Well no, not enough purchased last year's FIFA, so we just did a roster update this year. But if enough people buy this year's game, then NEXT year we'll make a great title, we promise..."

Exatcly the same for me. If i don't like game A from a publisher i won't buy it just so i can maybe get game B on the plattform i prefer. Would i like Marvel vs Capcom (even a older one) on the Switch? Yes! Will i buy Street Fighter or Resident Evil Revelations to get it? No! Because i don't care about those two. Same for EA. I don't like FIFA. I just don't care about it. Same with pretty much all sports games. I would like to see Garden Warfare on the Switch but i won't buy FIFA to get it just so i have a game collecting dust in my living room.

The Switch will have more exclusives in 9months than Xbox One has had in 2 years

The Switch will have more exclusives in 9months than Xbox One has had in 2 years

I think it's important to note that they both have what the other desperately needs. Switch needs more third parties and Xbox One needs more exclusives.

I guess SONY is in a good position.

I just don't understand how Xbox struggles with exclusives, especially when they bought Rare, and have the funds to support more first party studios if they chose to do so.

A combination of vaporware and few first-party studios. Canceled games and closed studios since the Xbox One launched among other things:

Canceled games:

Project Spark

Phantom Dust remake

Fable Legends

The leaked Obsidian RPG meant to be a launch title

Scalebound

Studios closed or let go:

Press Play

Lionhead

Twisted Pixel

Team Dakota

Timed exclusives:

Dead Rising 4 (this was after Phil said no more timed exclusives)

Rise of the Tomb Raider

Second-party IP that never received or are seemingly going to receive a sequel:

Quantum Break - Flopped, Remedy has moved on from their partnership with MS

ReCore - Mediocre, unpolished AA title that was not received well

Sunset Overdrive - Supposedly didn't sell well and Insomniac is busy with PS4 exclusives like Spider-Man

Ryse - MS couldn't acquire the IP from Crytek

Microsoft's current first-party lineup:

343i - Halo

The Coalition - Gears of War

Turn 10 - Forza

Rare - Sea of Thieves

Mojang - Minecraft

Second-party titles in the works:

Crackdown - Sumo Digital

State of Decay 2 - Undead Labs

No new studios opened since Phil Spencer took over as head of Xbox (except maybe one apparently working on an RTS? Haven't heard anything years if I remember correctly), no new AAA exclusives announced at this year's E3. Also, I don't count games like Cuphead and Ashen in this list. They're cool, but besides the point.

PC + Nintendo Switch is the best combo

Time's up for My Nintendo points from when I bought my Switch on 3 March 2017. And still no Switch rewards in sight.

Yeah my Nintendo is garbage in comparison to club Nintendo.

Club Nintendo would have some cool physical rewards, but also toss bones our way in the form of VC games and other small downloadable games.

MyNintendo hasn't had a single decent reward.

But the wallpapers!!! that you totally couldn't find in an image search

Just so you know, because the email is very confusing, only those 60 platinum coins to the left are expiring.

Gold coins only expire after 12 months, so you don't need to worry about that.

I am on the same boat pretty much. I have lost thousands of coins because there is nothing worthwhile to spend them on.

Not Sure If Mentioned but Multiple Wired Controllers Undocked Works.

Reminds me of the easy to use voice chat setup.

easy to use

So easy it literally requires 3 separate cables and 4 separate devices to work properly

Thanks for explaining the joke, I almost didn't get it.

Someone in one of my recent videos asked if this was possible, definitely not practical but if you have a USB-C to USB adapter and a USB hub, it totally works.

Update: Looks like you can use a USB-C hub and cut out some cables. My Macbook pro hub works great: https://twitter.com/Luis_GVN/status/896099319488565248

Should we make collectors edition physical copies of our digital game?

Should we make collectors edition physical copies of our digital game?

I'd prefer a cartridge naturally, but a special digital edition would be absolutely lovely.

We dont have the finances to do the cart edition sold in stores around the world (that requires a very large investment) but we can make "digital collectors editions" what do you think? It'll come with pluahies, pinny arcade pins and be signed and limited to 100?

Hello there lovely people, it's Alex from Nintendo Life here and I'd prefer a cartdridge naturally, but today we are gonna talk about the possibility of a special digital edition of Death Squared!

Don't make it limited to 100 and you have a deal
