ARMS & 1-2 Switch Won’t be Nintendo’s Only Unique IP for Nintendo Switch


As nice as it is to have new instalments to series’ that we love, sometimes it’s nice to get an all new IP and it seems that is the case as far as the Nintendo Switch is concerned.

 

During a recent interview with a Japanese magazine, Nintendo’s own Shinya Takahashi has confirmed that ARMS and 1-2 Switch will not be the only fresh new Nintendo’s own IP we can expect to see as far as the Switch is concerned as Nintendo are “preparing one new IP straight after the other,” and that there are some titles in development already.

Goodbye Project Sonic 2017 and Hello Sonic Forces!


At last Project Sonic 2017 has a name and that name is Sonic Forces!

 

I’m not a huge fan of the name, but at least SEGA did have a bit of style when they revealed it to us. Playing the trailer for Sonic Forces that we saw last year, which played pretty much exactly like it did before, only to then have Sonic Forces appear at the end of it. Although I’m not to show how it will do for Nintendo Switch since it’s releasing in the Holiday period, which is the same time Super Mario Odyssey is to release. (I hope their sales battle won’t affect their next Olympic debut.) Continue reading Goodbye Project Sonic 2017 and Hello Sonic Forces!

Of course it will sell badly as supply becomes non-existent, but according to the Wall Street Journal that is about to change. Continue reading The Future is Switch (Switch Production will Double in April)
