ITT: Predict the launch games of the Nintendo Switch 2

I'm thinking the lineup will include the following Nintendo games:
>Either a new 3D Mario OR a new Mario Kart
>Metroid Prime 4
>Pokemon Legends Z-A
>A totally new IP of some kind

and 3rd party games such as:
>Persona 3 Reload: Complete Edition
>Metaphor ReFantazio
>Final Fantasy XVI
>Red Dead Redemption 2
>Baldur's Gate 3

What do you think Ganker?

    I think Mario Kart is going to be the year two game like Smash Ultimate
    Also it's amusing that Smash dropped off like a rock while Mario Kart is going strong.

      smash sucks because there's always at least one sweat at every party that just plays the whole night beating everyone. it's the worst when there's more than one and they just sit there 1v1ing all night. mario kart is great because you just drive drunk with all your pals and frick them over a bunch. it's way more casual and anyone can win. perfect for parties.

            I also hope the Japanese third-party support is less hesistant to support a Nintendo console this time around. Aquaplus still not doing anything with their IPs is saddening.
            When it comes to Nintendo's own stuff, I like Fire Emblem, Pikmin, Xenoblade and their unique projects (Astral Chain, Buddy Mission Bond, Famicom Detective Club).

    Will Switch 2 emulation be kill?
    Will it be playable on 'eck?

    • 2 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      Hacking is always a possibility (though one they're doubtless doing everything they can to prevent) but emulation is much more doubtful. It's not an off the shelf SoC this time but something made special for Ninty by Nvidia. It's possible that it never gets emulated but tendies are insane so I wouldn't count it out completely. Your deck definitely wouldn't be able to handle it. In addition to having much more RAM Switch 2 is likely going to outstrip the Deck in power at least a little.

      >Will Switch 2 emulation be kill?
      >Will it be playable on 'eck?
      You need about 4x stronger to emulate a console. The switch 2 is around 3tflops so you need 12 tflops to run it at all, and about 16-20 to run games reliably at full framerate. Steam Deck is less than 2tflops.

      It depends on a lot of things.
      If the Switch 2 is just the Switch with significantly better hardware running in the same ecosystem Switch 2 emulation might be easy.
      That might also be why Nintendo wanted Yuzu gone and acted now of all times. If the Switch 2 releases and it's doing things Yuzu did better it might affect sales.

      I don’t know how anyone hasn’t said this yet but Switch 2 is going to have it’s own from of denuvo to combat emulation. It’s confirmed already. So yes, emulation is going to be considerably harder now. There’s the hardware aspect and now we have to worry about cracking games on top of that. It’s probably going to take several years to get rolling. Unless there’s some glaring security flaw Nintendo missed when making the launch model.

      It will almost certainly be emulated incredibly quickly, but there's no way the deck is going to be able to handle it. The switch 2 will be about as powerful as a deck is and you need a lot of extra power to emulate. Now the deck 2 on the other hand, that'll be interesting. And given the long nature of console generations there could very easily be a deck 3 or other pc handhelds coming out that can also emulate it well within the switch 2's life cycle since they're not bound by the limitations of a console.

    Mario Baseball. They are making a new one to show off the improved motion controls. It will be called Mario True Sluggers
    Mario Wonder 2. Easy game they had in the pipes after the completion of Wonder. Will have all new wonder transformations. It will be the return of King Wart as a villain, where Subcon is invading the Mushroom Kingdom through a corrupted Wonder Seed. Use Wonder Seeds to enter the world of dreams and defeat Wart.
    Zelda spin off featuring Zelda as the playable character. Tower defense game where you have to set up your troops to defeat what remains of Ganon's forces after the events of TotK.

      Super Mario GTA gives Mario a phone. You can 'call' him in game and give him power ups. It also is a menu screen for quick access to other options...as Mario GTA is a hub world for the entire Nintendo library for the next switch. Mario Kart will be built into it, just start races on street corners. (all the cars in this game are karts, and the guns are squirt guns like in splatoon). So every game is basically going to just be sitting there in the world available as a demo to play for free. Then you can get seasonal content when you want to play fuller versions of the games. So you can go play a round of tennis, but if you want to do tournaments and the whole story mode, you have to spend $19.99 or whatever. The game will be filled with activities and jobs that are implementations of Mario games.

      The main story will feature Bowser ships hovering over the world and the area below them having koopa invading the mushroom kingdom. You will have to clear out the area below and then go up to the sky island like koopa ship.

      Wario will also be an antagonist. As this game isn't about doing GTA rampages, but being Mario...they will reverse the dynamic and make Wario a kind of anti-player that runs around and does rampage like behaviors and you have to hop in a toad police car, and stop him by being cop Mario.

        Smash 1V1 will be based around the Mario movie's DK fight. There will be only 12 characters, all Nintendo. Each character has their own stadium and there are no stages. The stages are an arrangement of blocks and powerups that can move dynamically. Game is zoomed in, 1 camera for each character with close ups and camera effects for smashes.

        Mario GTA will feature a day night cycle of about an hour. The game will ask you to turn it off and play again tomorrow. Obviously, you can keep playing, but they are trying for the healthy gamer vibe. And while you play the story, there is also the ability to just make an itinerary, hold down a job (plumber sure or maybe Dr.), eat, go out and play tennis or whatever as a hobby. But then come back and sleep. It's sort of perpetual end game. The daily life of Mario.

          Trailer opens up to Mario original arcade game screen. Pulls out, it's a very tired Mario. "Come on Mario, it's late, we gotta get home." Game over screen. "Ok Luigi, Let'sa go." Camera pulls out and it's playable Mario in the game. Luigi is his sidekick/companion right now. "Come on Mario." Sidekicks are like GPS, they talk to you and show you where to go when you put a waypoint on the map. You follow Luigi back home and go to sleep in the playable engine. Mario's drowsy state is humorously analogous to being inebriated in GTA. You walk out the arcade and across the street, trying not to get hit by cars and being belligerent when they almost hit you, "Hey, watch it here." It is a voiced Mario featuring Chris Pratt. After you cross the street Mario gets a call and pull out the Mario phone from your back pocket giving him a power up and making him normal again. The bowser laugh plays and a giant hovering bowership floats overhead.

          The Switch is more powerful when docked, GPU clocks jump from 384Mhz to 768Mhz in your average game. The Switch 2 will do the same thing, though nobody knows the specific clock speeds yet.

          Isn't dlss 3 dogshit at 1080p and lower?

          It works fine as long as you don't set the internal resolution too low, like 240p or 144p. It depends a little from game to game, but it generally holds up really well at 540p to 720p inputs.

        Because everyone still uses UE4 when PS5 came out. Now devs are ready to move on, especially Square since all their AAA projects are shifting to UE5 and they already called out for Nintendo when they announced going full multiplatform

      >They said Switch 2 can handle Unreal Engine 5, but how does that work anyway? It's one of the most hardware demanding engines so far.
      There's nothing special about UE5 besides the pre-made stuff by made by Epic, it's a game engine like any other besides the above which can also be replicated on any other video game engine

      Developers can use UE5 right now to create a videogame on Switch 1, the reason they don't actually do it is because they would have to remove a lot of the pre-made stuff that came with UE5, they would have to modify the engine and that takes time.

      It's like buying a car and transforming said car into a bicycle, you can probably do it, it'll just take a lot of time and most of the time not even worth

      When they said it can handle Unreal Engine 5 it's most likely the pre-made stuff such as Raytracing or whatever they market for UE5 nowadays

      Honest question, do you even understand how game engines work? It all depends on what features deva want to use and what scale/scope the game is. There are already UE5 games on the Switch now.

          Absolutely fricking not, but given how smoothly 7CCR runs on Switch, I think it's technically possible for 7 Remake to run on Switch 1 if they significantly tone down the graphics. But for SE, it's definitely not worth the effort.

    It'll be much more strictly locked down in an attempt to avoid similar exploits to the original Switch. I'm betting on proprietary storage and a push for more always online stuff to track what people are playing

    • 2 weeks ago

      Proprietary storage doesn't really make sense for Nintendo. Sony at least had the excuse that they make memory cards because they're a huge conglomerate, but a gaming-first company like Nintendo won't have the capacity for a new format. Besides, there are better ways to prevent exploits. The Switch itself post-2019 is still uncrackable without a modchip.

        i honestly expect that new exploits have been found for v2 switch, but this time people in the scene are keeping them to themselves to avoid another nintendo revision before eol for the switch
        iirc vita hacking was only on old firmwares until eol and then new exploits were released to avoid any cat and mouse with sony's software team

        • 2 weeks ago
          Anonymous

          The cat and mouse thing with Sony was because of the vita itself failing to succeed. It might not be the same with nintendo due to the absurd sales of the switch. So they might have a small team just to continue patch software holes if they bother to use their money for that case.

    For the record we know roughly how strong the switch 2 is. The chip leaked in the Nvidia hack and shipping data recently confirmed they're still using that chip. it's 3-3.5tflops with DLSS. Basically somewhere around Xbox series S.

    I honestly can't be bothered to ever play another rehashed Nintendo IP ever again. I'll hold off on buying one until Monolithsoft comes out with the next Xeno game.

    When do we think SMT V Vengeance is going to arrive? I feel like it won't be day 1. IIRC even Skyrim, which featured heavily in the marketing leading up to the Switch's release, wasn't there day 1. I'd expect it has to be pretty close to release, especially if the Switch 2 comes out later than April or May 2025.

    Metroid Prime 4 and the next Pokemon title will be on Switch. Though they will be playable on next-gen via backwards compatibility. Next Mario title will be either holiday or a spring title. Zelda BotW will have a next gen version with all the DLC inncluded exclusive to next platform for $70. Though a digital only Switch bundle will go on sale with the game and DLC for $70. Switch version will be playable via backwards compatibility for those who already have it.

    The new IP will be a tech demo showcasing the new gimmick of the system. We won't get Mario Kart on launch year. It'll be the next year either as summer or holiday title. Smash Bros. is up in the air but it could be a similar situation to BotW where Ultimate gets a next-gen upgrade version with all the DLC with BC for those who already bought it. Animal Crossing is 1-2 years after release. It's release depends on if they're split between Splatoon 4. Third party releases depend on whether or not they care enough for a Nintendo version over making a half-assed Steam Deck version.

    New game cards will be up to 64 gigabytes maybe? But if games are over 80 gigs total with download then AAAA third-party games will pass Switch.

      I mean, it’s a pretty safe prediction nowadays

      How do you predict a new game from a company who radically changes the format? All you can say is "3d mario game" but you cant predict what that will be like.

        I have an idea. Here's a game called Super Mario Planet. It's a 3D Mario game where you start on a tiny little island. Bowser has sank all the continents of the world under poisonous sea water. And Mario has to find stars or whatever to raise the land. On the tiny island you get your first star. That star raises a linear strip of land. You do the obstacle course to the end to nab another star. Then more sections of land rises. All with little to no loading screens between sections. Eventually you'll raise a good chunk of the continent that you can explore non-linearly. In fact that unreachable spot at the beginning now has a land bridge you can go to. And power-ups will be Shark Mario and Super Cape along with Fire/Ice Mario, Tanooki, Cat, whatever.
