Will the new updates for the Nintendo Switch help with sales?


It has been recently reported that the latest version of the Nintendo Switch has received some new updates that would make the gaming experience for players more convenient and enjoyable.  The Nintendo Switch version 4.00 will allow players to transfer saved game data along with the video capturing for games such as Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Arms, Splatoon 2 and Mario Kart Deluxe 8.  

In terms of whether or not these new features will help the hybrid console in terms sales is not much of a question; especially considering the fact that the Nintendo Switch has managed to selling 2.5 million units worldwide within a few months following it release.  If we get the data transfer and the video capture feature on the Nintendo Switch for the same price of approximately $300 as the original version then that would be considered good news.  If the Nintendo  Switch 4.00 is more expensive for whatever reason that definitely be questioned by people who still want to buy the hybrid console.

Should the Mortal Kombat Trilogy have been re-released on the Sega Dreamcast? 

The Mortal Kombat Trilogy series was very popular back in the 90’s since it was released for multiple game including Nintendo 64, PS1 and Sega Saturn.  Despite, how much fun Mortal Kombat Trilogy was there are some who are interested on why it was never released for the Sega Dreamcast.  To be honest it would not have made to much sense to release Mortal Kombat Trilogy for the Sega Dreamcast.  


Mortal Kombat Trilogy was released on multiple game consoles back in 1996 and by the time Dreamcast was released in 1998 we already had Mortal Kombat 4 which was a 3D title that everyone was interested in since 2D gaming was starting to become stale around that time.  Besides Mortal Kombat Gold was released for the Sega Dreamcast back in 1999; if Mortal Kombat Trilogy was released on the Sega Dreamcast cast it could have easily have been overshadowed by 3D titles that were in high demand.  

Will BlazeBlue Cross Tag Battle have more success on the Nintendo Switch or the PS4?

As many people know we have another crossover tag battle game to look forward to besides Dragon Ball FighterZ entitled BlazeBlue Cross Tag Battle in 2018.  BlazeBlue Cross Tag Battle will be developed by Arc Work Systems and will feature 2D two on two tag team gameplay with many interesting characters such as Jin Kisarigi, Rachael Alucard, Hazama and others.  


As excited as many are for this upcoming BlazeBlue title many are wondering which version of the game will end up selling more between the PS4 and the Nintendo Switch:  While the PS4 version of the game may have better graphics BlazeBlue Cross Tag Battle is less likely to be overshadowed by RPG and first or third person shooter titles.  Also, the fact that Marvel can Capcom Infinite was released for the PS4 a few weeks ago on the PS4 could most likely affect how much BlazeBlue Cross Tag Battle would do on the PS4 in terms of sales.  

Will we ever see a Marvel vs DC game? 

Over the years we have seen many cool crossover over video games that featured the Marvel vs Capcom series along with games such as Tekken vs Street Fighter, J Stars Victory VS along with many other 2D and 3D titles for various game systems including PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and others.  While the Marvel vs Capcom series has been quite impressive for over the past decade many people are interested in seeing a Marvel vs DC title in the future. 


A Marvel vs DC Universe game would defy turn the heads of many people who are long time fans of the older games and the comic book series for the past couple of decades.  While the idea of developing a Marvel vs DC Universe game sounds great in theory it would be hard to imagine how it would play out in practice. Multiple things would have to be taken into consideration when developing a Marvel vs DC Universe game such as the plot, characters included along with many other things.  As of right now a Marvel vs DC game is unlikely to happen in the near future but it would definitely be something that millions of gamers would pay to see.  

Is the SNES Classic a bigger success than the Nintendo Switch?

Ever since the SNES Classic was released in late September of 2017 the retro based game console had managed to exceed the expectations of many worldwide in terms of sales.  It has been reported that the SNEE Classic has managed to sell over 368,000 within the first four days of its release which is more than the Nintendo Switch has done in a week during its first week.  


The Nintendo Switch had only managed to sell over 330,000 units worldwide during its first week following its release in early March 2017 and has now reached over 2.5 million units in terms of worldwide sales.  If anything the nostalgia of retro video game titles may have played a significant factor in the SNES Classic selling more than the Nintendo Switch.  


Not only were many old school games attracted to the SNES Classic but the console featured classics such as Mega Man X, Star Fox, F-Zero, Secret of Mana and others for on $80 plus tax.   Also, most of the games on the SNES Classic are often hard to find in used video game stores in general which usually forces people to buy these titles on eBay or Amazon.  As of right now it’s a little tough to predict how much the SNES will sell worldwide within a year.  But at the current rate that the SNES Classic is flying off the shelfs in electronic retail stores cross countries like Japan and America it would be safe to expect at least one million units worldwide before September 2018.  

Would Marvel vs Capcom Infinite be considered a success?

Marvel vs Capcom Infinite is a game that many people have waited for since the release of Marvel vs Capcom 3 back in 2011.  Ever since Marvel vs Capcom Infinite was released back in late September the game has received positive reviews for its visuals,  crossover gameplay and story mode.  However, the game has been criticized by some for its roster.


In top of that Marvel vs Capcom Infinite was unable to reach the top 10 in terms of best selling games during the week of its release in the UK. While Marvel vs Capcom Infinite is a game that considered to be a blast for those who have been long time fans of the series some would argue that the game pales in comparison to Marvel vs Capcom 3. 


 The exclusion of three on three battles in Marvel be Capcom Infinite definitely worked against the overall quality of the game because it felt like a step backwards in comparison to Marvel vs Capcom 3.  While Marvel vs Capcom 3 was an awesome crossover game back in 2011 it was pretty tough to develop a title that could top it.  Even though, Marvel vs Capcom Infinite did not live up to the expectations of some fans of the series it’s still a solid crossover fighting game overall.  

Will Harvest Moon: Light of Hope be a success?

Ever since the mid 90’s when the very first Harvest Moon game was released for the SNES many people have been fans of the farm building simulation series.  Those who haven fans of the Harvest Moon series will be happy to know that a new game entitled Harvest Moon: Light of Hope will be released for the PS4, Nintendo Switch and PC in the near future. As of right now Harvest Moon: Light of Hope looks promising especially with some of the new features that this upcoming game will have.  

In Harvest Moon: Light of Hope will allow players to monitor how well their crops are growing along with being able to determine what they are ahead of time.  The Farming Friend game mechanic is one that is very resourceful since it provides players with important info about their crops in relation to building their farms.  Harvest Moon: Light of Hope is a game that could definitely thrive on the Nintendo Switch or PC in terms of popularity and sales.  However, when it comes down to the PS4 would be hard to determine how well Harvest Moon: Light of Hope would do especially since RPG and shooter titles tend to receive more mainstream attention than any other genre for that console.
