Gaming Is the Switch another Wii U?

Recommended Posts

No third party support, and long software droughts. Looks like another Wii U to me.

They

 

literally announced Fortnite, Dragon Ball FigherZ, Hollow Knight, Overcooked 2 and showcased Wolfenstein II, Crash N. Sane Trilogy and Octopath Traveler during the direct. Did you pay any attention?

Actually Spyro has NOT been confirmed to be coming out for the Switch. It is an oddity, but it is what it is.

Honestly wonder why that’s the case considering it’s not on PC either, while Crash is coming to both

on the Nintendo site, it put up spyro with its release date, then took it down since it was going to be released before official announcement 

look at the site a few weeks before spyro, it be up there again ^^

I remember that happening as well, but absolutely nothing has come of it since and it has been months. I'd be skeptical.

It may be like Crash, which was a timed exclusive.

Either way the Switch is so obviously not like the Wii U, so this entire thread is just baseless. The Switch is getting support it previously never would have, it's safe to say it's doing fine.

You are kinda mistaken there bro, as there have been a healthy amount of third party games last year, and many more has been announced this direct. Sure, most of them are from a bit of times part, but at least it ain't a bunch of junkware like the WII had :dash:. Also, so far, their first party games are the shit from my experience

Uhh, you've got to be trolling. The Switch has been doing far better than the Wii U did in its lifetime and we've got plenty of games to play on the system, and it looked like there were plenty of third party games announced for the system at E3 this year. Fortnite, Paladins, Octopath Traveler, Wolfenstien II, etc... Sure, there might not be nearly as much as on the PS4 or XBOX ONE, but the Switch did come out pretty late and I remember developers were pretty skeptical of the system before launch. Its also been selling really well and I'm confident the third party games will come.

Both the the Switch and Wii U had fairly substantial 3rd party support within their first few years.

I agree the Switch isn't getting any of the "big" games. I see no Witcher 3 going to the Switch, nor do I see Monster Hunter World, Kingdom Hearts 3, Red Dead Redemption 2, Far Cry 5, Fallout 4, Fallout 76, Metro Exodus, Cyberpunk 2077, Assassin's Creed Origins, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, etc.

Why isn't the Switch getting all of those high profile releases? Because the hardware isn't capable of playing those games unless they are on settings lower than the lowest pc settings available. So, in other words, power is essential to getting proper "full" 3rd party support.

The Switch will most likely continue to do well even with their lack of some high profile titles. Why? Because the Switch is the "stylish new thing" to buy. Just like the Wii was 10 years ago. Style over substance is pretty much Nintendo's new mantra. That and "Gimmicks, gimmicks everywhere~"

Regardless, I'm looking forward to playing some awesome new Switch exclusive titles at 4k 60fps once a proper emulator comes out. So, I suppose I cannot complain too much lol (^-^)/) Can't wait for the 1100 series either \(^o^)/

More than likely, Crash was a timed exclusive and Spyro would be right at home with his cousin Crash.

Yeah and the next few months are going to have lots of good software released for all platforms. For the Switch in the next few months you will have:

  • Octopath Traveler
  • Smash Bros. Ultimate
  • Let's Go Pikachu/Let's Go Evee
  • Tales of Vesperia
  • Wolfenstein II
  • Fortnite
  • Dark Souls Remastered

I mean there is enough AAA publisher titles there to keep you busy while you wait for more games.

Not to mention, their own first party games are some real shit. Just compare the WII games, THEIR OWN: it was a bold move for their part the motion control, but they've made games around the gimmick, not the other way. They've wanted to stand out with the gimmick, by sacrificing their creativity and soul for the games. But word by mouth praising Breath of  the Wild, and Odyssey, led me to get a Switch. And I'm happy to report that the old Nintendo that I love and grew with seems to be coming back :yay:

No third party support? There's been plenty of third party support. The Switch already defied Michael Pachter's predictions of it being a bad console.

I can see why your classing Fortnite as non-third party. It's so you don't have to play it, but you don't need to class it as non-third party if you don't want to play it.

I think the Switch is a better version of the Wii U. It's going to have more third party support than the Wii U, but not quite on the level of Xbox and PlayStation. But Nintendo's first party games on the Switch will probably blow Microsoft and Sony's first party games away.

Can't talk about Microsoft, as I don't own their consoles, but I think Zero Dawn and The Last of Us 2 are the only only exclusives that I think can give Nintendo's a run for their money

We all know this is what the Wii U was supposed to have been. In short; no! But it's far from perfect. :dash:

No third party support? What are you talking about? The Switch looks to me like it will have an INSANE amount of third party support. Also, the Switch already has more good games than the Wii U has.

I was massively disappointed with the Wii U but Nintendo rly looked like they learned from their mistakes and the Switch is looking promising. I want one just for the LoZ game and Splatoon 2

Hardware wise the Wii U was bad in terms of processor but the graphics card was good.

This is a good video explaining the power of the Wii U.
