One Year Later, Did Nintendo Keep Its E3 2017 Promises?

By the time E3 2017 rolled around, Nintendo Switch was barely three months old. Coming off the success of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, what other exciting things were planned for year one of Nintendo’s newest system? Going into E3, the company had the wind at its back, but it still had a lot to prove.

The story is too old to be commented.

Nintendo has yet to delay a title since the launch of the Switch, let's hope that trend continues!

This is one of the things I love about Nintendo. I'm starting to hate the line that "delays are a good thing". I still say no. not because I want them to release an unfinished or unpolished product, but because I want them to announce a release date when they're sure they can make it. Nintendo does this, I wish others would follow.

I think it's a good thing that a game is delayed instead of being released broken, but when you look at the bigger picture delays are a huge problem. When a delay happens it means the development team ran into unforeseen issues or development took a lot longer than expected. From that perspective, clearly delays are a serious issue as it means there is an industry wide problem of not being able to meet deadlines, things not working as planned, more bugs than expected, etc . . .

Nintendo was pretty bad during the Wii U days when it came to delays, but now they seem to have development under control and they're also waiting much longer to reveal games. It's exciting going into E3 knowing that they will likely announce a title that we'll see before the end of the year, possibly even two or three titles.
