Breath of the Wild 2 Needs to Come out Holiday 2020 - In order to compete with Xbox Scarlett & the PS5, Nintendo needs to come out with BOTW 2 in 2020.
Yea that makes sense, maybe the rumored “Switch Pro” will be enough to compete with the next Xbox and PS5. We will we see, I’m starting to put money aside for both systems.
If a Switch Pro comes out it won't be enough of a power jump to compete with PS5 or Scarlett. It will be a stop gap like the Pro and X are.
Nintendo is doing its own thing, the Switch is not in the same category of games console that PlayStation and Xbox are. Sony and Microsoft are releasing new consoles next year because they have to keep pace with one another, Nintendo doesn't need to. There will be no Switch Pro in 2020.
@Venom Oh, I'm not saying there will be. I was just saying, if there was, it wouldn't compete power wise with the PS5 and Scarlett.
All a Switch pro can be is an X2 with is not a big jump from the X1. There is no Tegra chip after that Nintendo can use until the Ampere in a few years. That will give it at least base Xbox One or PS4 performance with newer feature sets. If they can somehow shrink the die to 3-4nm then we may see PS4 Pro performance by 2023-2024. As it is now in 2019 or 2020. X2 is a small boost.
I dont understand. The switch was never the most powerful neither was the wii....come to think of it, when was Nintendo the most powerful in a generation? The 64? Fact of the matter is ps5 and scarlett better have games showing the power or it will be them not competing with Nintendo. All Nintendo gotta do in holiday 2020 is drop the price.
Obviously, but that doesn't matter.
I’m not sure if you’re thinking the Switch Pro system would be on the level of a PS5 or Scarlett, but I can tell you 100% that the Switch Pro would not have games the base Switch couldn’t play. So, it wouldn’t compete at all. It’s just maybe your Switch games would be sharper and run at higher frame rates. It wouldn’t be like you’ll be playing PS5 or Scarlett games on the Switch Pro.
@Crimson You can’t say 100% that a Switch pro wouldn’t have games the base switch couldn’t play cause Nintendo has always done that. The gameboy color games couldn’t be played on the original gameboy. The 3ds is basically a DS pro. The “NEW” 3ds has games the other ds 3ds models can’t play. Even the Nintendo 64 had games you could only play if you had the hi-rez expansion pak including Majoras Mask and Donkey Kong 64.
I didn't know that Nintendo was competing with Sony and Microsoft. I thought that Nintendo always did their own thing
Again, they all are console maker, and they all make games. Therefore, they are in the same market competing for the same audience, gamer. Unless you start seeing the Switch pop up in the top 10 selling TV list or aircon list, then my point stands.
They’re in the console market. That’s like saying you didn’t know Chick-Fil-A is competing with Burger King and McDonalds...
I've thought this for a while. I think that BotW 2 coming out in October/November would be fantastic. It'd also be great if Prime 4 came out that same year, but I don't have high hopes. They can still have a good year with Animal Crossing, BotW 2, Bayonetta 3, No More Heroes 3 and a few other surprises (which I'm sure they have). Hopefully SMTV comes out next year too.
Titles like Pikmin, Starfox, Mario Odyssey 2, Paper Mario, Kid Icurus, and Warioware would do wonder on top of your listed titles for 2020.
Regardless of what Microsoft and Sony do the Switch is going to just keep plodding along. Nintendos exclusive games alone will ensure that it eclipses 80M sold in the next few years.
tbh i'd rather have a switch pro release to buy with the joycon drift issues fixed
that thing is not even a competition right now, unless you see a competition by releasing low level ports.
But it is a console isn’t it? And say it with me, what does a console compete with, market-wise? Answer: Another console! I know, I had a brain-freeze coming up with that idea.
you are so insecure sometimes.. just enjoy your one system and move along.
If the latest rumors are to be believed, then the switch pro would have a decent boost in power and it might have a few exclusives games like how the New 3DS had a couple of games that couldn't run on the original 3DS. But the latest rumor about the switch pro is that is would be DOCKED ONLY which is weird but there is also a switch lite that is portable only. Take the rumor with a grain of salt of course but I think there is a good chance that a switch pro of some kind will come out and maybe along the release of BOTW 2. As someone pointed out a while ago: Switch - BOTW Switch lite - links awakening Switch pro - BOTW 2 Lol. It's a ridiculous theory I heard a while back but I wouldn't surprised if it happened. This is all just a theory of mine.
BotW got game of the year 2017. Its sequel will sell like hot cakes even if it's only half as good as its predecessor.
I think Nintendo will make sure that the criticisms from the first game will be addressed. So I think this game will be even better if they can take the good from BOTW and improve upon the other areas.
Complaints wise I say Link was too skinny. Also according to my sister he runs like a girl (burn 🔥). It's also with mentioning the game had frame rate issues in Kakariko village and the game also allows Link to wear the fierce diety mask, staying skinny as hell, without transforming at all. So weak... Lastly they should buff the damage dealt to enemies when they get hit with a bolt of lightning for crying out loud! Throwing an electrified pitchfork at a moblin during a thunderstorm and consequently making it get hit by lightning only takes out 25% of its health. RU kidding me?
Nintendo will do what they always do -- release things when they want and when they are ready
I do agree. A Switch Pro bundled with BOTW 2 will do wonder for Nintendo.
It does make sense but the Switch won't really compete with those systems especially with the portable only model. However I do agree that it wouldn't be a bad idea to release it at the end of next year along with an updated model of the Switch.
Im hoping switch pro too. But man, how will nintendo compete for the launch of their competitors' next gen I wonder. So damn excited for 2020.
My guess is they wont. Why release a hardware revision in such a highly competitive year? N should sit back and push out good games in 2020, then release their hardware revision the next year.
Nintendo is not apart of any gen. They do their own thing. The switch is more of an in-between type device. I dont consider it to be competing with either MS or Sony. They will release it whenever they want and it will sell millions. I will be right there in line to pick up physical version whenever that may be.
I needs to come out when its READY.
No. You don't wanna rush games. Also nintendo isn't 'competing'
breath of the wild 2 needs to be judged objectively pointing out his flaws, unlike the first one.
