This is insane! really woke me up from this borefest of a show

NecrumOddBoy10d ago

TGA is really bad but there have been a few cool announcements.


Completely disagree. Doritos Pope made good on his promise. This TGA is already way more entertaining than E3 was this year.

The 10th Rider10d ago


Yeah, way better than any of the E3 shows this year.

PapaBop10d ago

You can't unwatch that garbage anti vape thing though.. like WTF was that? Persona 5 dlc for Smash though definitely the biggest surprise for me.

DwightSchrute0110d ago (Edited 10d ago )

Did Nintendo have any surprises like Metroid?

deafdani9d ago

Not on that caliber, no. But they are publishing Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, which looks pretty cool, which was a nice surprise along with this Smash announcement.

porkChop10d ago

Borefest? This was the best show TGA have ever had.

The awards were great and well-picked, the musical performances were great, and the announcements were not only great but also really diverse.

TGA 2018 was a much better show overall than E3 2018. Geoff Keighley absolutely delivered on his promises this year. We finally have a good, legitimate award show for gaming.

GameBoyColor10d ago

mmm i just saw it as more of the same as the last tga with maybe a little more content. But i don't disagree that this was better than e3, though that's not saying much given how bad e3 keeps getting.

deafdani9d ago

And most important of all: there were no cringe moments, in my opinion. This was a great show, I don't know what people were expecting.

mav8059d ago

Yes, I wasn't going to play Smash, but indeed, now I will.

It's "looking cool, Joker".

AspiringProGenji9d ago

Woah you right. How could I? 🤦🏼‍♂️

Blastoise10d ago

Pretty badass character to add

Sonyslave310d ago

so person 5 coming to switch in the future?

AspiringProGenji10d ago (Edited 10d ago )

No exactly It means Joker is the best representation of The persona series. Nintendo has already a Exclusive persona game (persona Q)

Sirk7x10d ago (Edited 10d ago )

Every character in Smash has been on a Nintendo platform at some point though. Cloud in Kingdom Hearts games, which there have been multiple on Nintendo handhelds, and Snake was in Twin Snakes.


Obvs bro...but with extra content :)

2019 is stacked as hell for Switch!

Bayo 3
Persona 5+
Fire Emblem: Three Houses
Doom Eternal
Wolfenstein Youngblood

Let's go!!!

Segata10d ago

Daemon X Machina
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3

LegoIsAwesome10d ago

Hey look. Cloud is in Smash. So are we expecting FFVIIRe in switch? You tell me with that logic of yours.

Razmiran10d ago

Well, FF7 IS coming to switch...

Unreal0110d ago

I'm calling it. Crash Bandicoot will be one of the next additional characters for Smash.

deafdani9d ago (Edited 9d ago )

@LegoIsAwesome: but Cloud did appear in Theatrythm and Final Fantasy Explorers, as well as a few Kingdom Heart games, all of which were available on Nintendo platforms prior to Smash 4.

Joker has been in Persona Q2 for the 3DS.

Im gunna say this all but confirms P5P but you never know

P_Bomb10d ago

Doesn’t confirm anything tbh. Minecraft on PS4 has characters from Xbox games like Halo/Gears (Master Chief, Clayton Carmine, Cole etc) as well as guys from Fable Heroes and Trials Evolution. Doesn’t mean the games those characters are from are coming too.

See for yourself. Launch Minecraft PS4, options, change skin, classic skin pack 1, voila. Xbox characters.

GameBoyColor10d ago

the thing is, Sony does not own Persona and had really nothing to do with it's development. Atlus always does a portable version and this time around sony does not have one.

ZeekQuattro10d ago (Edited 10d ago )

Most likely not. Just look at the Snake and Simon Belmont situation. Snake hasn't had a game on a Nintendo home console since the GCN and the latest Castlevania game remaster or not is skipping the Switch unless something changes but considering Sony looks likes they were involved with the game it most likely isn't happening.

Sirk7x10d ago

Name a character in Smash that hasn't been on Nintendo consoles at one point though.

AsunaYuukiTheFlash9d ago (Edited 9d ago )

@Sirk7x Joker is already on Persona Q2. Persona 5 on Switch is not happening.

deafdani9d ago (Edited 9d ago )

Snake appeared originally on the first Metal Gear game, which was available on the NES.

Simon Belmont appeared originally in Castlevania II, which was on the NES.

Both of these characters have history with Nintendo. Even Cloud from Final Fantasy does. Joker has been in Persona Q2.

I think this definitely opens the door. I am sure there will be a Joker amiibo and the sales for that will undoubtedly be the bigger motivating factor. Obviously, Nintendo would be fools to not want Persona 5 on Switch. The question is, can they get it. No way Sega and Atlus doesnt want Persona 5 amiibos. Imagine how well a Morgana amiibo would sale. So, this opens the door for sure. Will it happen? Maybe, maybe not. It's more likely to happen now than before.
