@crepe As much as I love this series, I just can't see how a rep from it would work. I actually think assist trophies work well for them.
But hurry up and make a new one for Switch Nintendo.
I'm betting Megaman and Ryu will return
Megaman should come back with a slightly tweaked moveset. Ryu I could see just not returning though. Didn't help that he got leaked before his reveal, so the amount of buzz having him in the game should've caused didn't happen, and he got overshadowed by Cloud and others.
amount of ports far outnumber new interesting original games
That's true for every system. Switch had an amazing first year. Much better than most consoles get.
I don't care if you buy every new-non port game that comes out for the Switch
I don't. There's specifically many I did not buy, because I wasn't interested enough in them to drop the cash.
(for a lot of people)
You're just upset that people think something you don't agree with.
Switch is doing fine. Only people upset are the ones that are for some reason annoyed that the Switch has become popular when they themselves can't seem to find games they want to play on it, despite the system being loaded with games. Maybe you want cutting edge 4k graphics or are super into sports or VR or something? That's cool, and there's other systems you can use to fill those gaps. You also don't have to be into the new games coming out for Switch if you just aren't.
Just stop pretending it isn't getting any new games and is nothing but ports, because it gets plenty new games at a frequent pace. If you want to complain that it gets too many new indie games and not enough new big publisher third party games, then you at least are saying something that can lead to a discussion. When you're trashing Switch for a problem it doesn't even have, then you just come off as a hater. This isn't the Wii U. There aren't software droughts anymore.
@suplextrain I read what you said, and my point was you're ignoring all the new games Switch is getting just because there's also a ton of ports nobody is forcing you to buy. Hell, a brand new Kirby game is about to come out too, but you're not interested in it so you pretend it doesn't exist and say the system is getting nothing but ports when you mean there's nothing new you're interested in buying on it, which is completely different.
the Switch is getting way too many ports and not enough new original games
I'm not gonna buy a Switch for ports
Just saying that if it got more original games the system would be more appealing than if it was flooded by ports
It's not like most of the games they get are ports (which is pretty much what the situation is like for the Switch)
Nintendo is leaning too heavily on ports to fill their library atm
Let's take a moment to examine what I've bought for my Switch since I got my Switch.
Day 1: Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Bomberman R, and Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment. Breath of the Wild was obviously retooled from an original intended Wii U version, but it did come out the same day as the Wii U version so it falls under multiplat rather than port if anything. Super Bomberman R is without any doubt a full, brand new game. While Shovel Knight's original campaign and the Plague Knight "campaign" are old, Specter of Torment was a brand new, vastly different campaign that debuted on Switch first, but only by like a day, so I'm fine with demoting it to multiplat out of principle.
Rest of 2017: Splatoon 2, Sonic Mania, Super Mario Odyssey, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Splatoon 2 is your typical two years later new coat of ink on an established shooter franchise. Sonic Mania was a multiplat perfect for playing on the go, and it's the only version that still has the Dunkey Easter Egg, so easily the best version of the game. Obviously Super Mario Odyssey was a brand new game. Likewise Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is very much a brand new game. Don't let the 2 there fool you into thinking it is very similar to the original, because the combat has been completely overhauled, the world is entirely new and different, new art style with brand new characters, and the plot just barely ties into the original.
So aside from a handful of multiplats, I've yet to buy any ports on my Switch, and I had a hefty amount of new games last year even without buying everything avilable. I've been tempted to pick up afew ports like Snake Pass, Stardew Valley, Steam World: Heist, etc. because they'd be fun to play on the go, but I've been kept busy enough with nonports to not dip into that yet, not to mention PC games, PS4 games, 3DS games, etc.
Now, I'm sure that would be different if I didn't own a Wii U, as I'd then be interested in many of those ports as I would have never had a chance to play those games before, and hey it might as well be new to people who never owned and never plan to own a Wii U for games that only exist between the Switch and the Wii U. But still this is not my personal case, I've instead experienced a steady flow of new games for my Switch without the need to buy into any of the ports, which shouldn't hurt your perception of the Switch for simply existing anyways as you seem to have fallen into the trap of.
Am I interested in this new Code of Princess remake or whatever it is when you can easily find the original game on 3DS eShop on sale for $1.50 every other week? Nah, I'm good. Does its existence offend me that another developer realizes they can make more money by easily porting their game to the Switch to offer it to a growing audience on a popular platform? Why would it? All systems get ports, and I'm in the give me even more ports camp, because there's still plenty of Steam games left I'd rather be playing on my Switch on the go like Slime Rancher, Into the Breach, Hollow Knight, etc. and plenty of people who don't PC game at all that those might as well be new games to.
So just say you're not into the games being offered on the Switch and drop this Switch is nothing but ports nonsense excuse.
is there any more under appreciated games left on the Wii u
I may be reading into it too much, but I’m hoping that they still plan to have a Virtual Console service on Switch and that they place GameCube games on it. Remakes like this will potentially net them more profit if they sell it for $30 or $40.
I see that angle, but I think the Luigi's Mansion on 3DS was merely to cater to people who started Luigi's Mansion on the 3DS with the sequel and offer them a crack at the original. I'm not going to worry unless The Thousand Year Door or Sunshine or such ends up with a 3DS release. Honestly think Nintendo is just looking for low effort projects, as they already had the engine to remake the original from Dark Moon, for games they can make for 3DS owners so they can claim they're still supporting it and continue to cash in on the large install base while still focusing the majority of their time and efforts on Switch releases.
@chocobop Even if it is technically Smash 5, I have a feeling it'll build on Smash 4 assets or engine or general balance and be kinda the Splatoon 2 of Smash 4 Wii U, so it might as well be a Deluxe, just barely enough new to not call it Deluxe.
Which character do you want to see?
