    pre-the-two-sales-juggernauts.

    Is this how any new Switch game will be announced unless it's minesweeper or tetris?



    PRODUCTION HALTED!

    Are you somehow suggesting that they won’t be big sellers? What is your point?
    Kids will see a fun game where Mario can batter the shit out of Pikachu and want it.
    They won’t think “hold on, I better check how old this IP is before I decide if I’m interested”.

    yeah I will give you that one :) the rest less so...

    To be honest much like the film industry its all sequels, franchises and tie-ins now..I mean look at how shit the Venom movie was and it still coined it in.

    Rare to see truly new IP - in fact the last biggie for N is Splatoon

    I don't think Nintendo as a brand, Pokemon or Smash have as much juice as people think.

    Nintendo and it's IP's are held in high regard by people over a certain age. To anyone under 20 it's just a another console.

    Young children in "not being discerning, cynical, burned-out husks of gamers" shocker. More breaking news to follow.

    Is this really who you want to argue with when it comes to what youngsters like and don't like?

    "Daddy, can you get me a Switch game for Christmas? I want it to be a surprise."

    "But none of that Mario rubbish, that shit is old."

    "Oh, and no indies please, I only enjoy AAA fare"

    You've just said new IP's are no longer a "thing". I was pointing out that they were. You strange little man.

    If my child phrased a question like that, he'd definitely get mustard on the anus.

    It's probably less awkward than answering questions about the Wii.
