There is no question at all that Splatoon 2 is one of the most popular shooters that we have seen for the Nintendo Switch. When Splatoon 2 was first released on July 21st the game had managed to sell over 670,000 units within 72 hours of its release. Even though, the shooter genre is very popular right now in the gaming world it would be hard to tell whether or not the game would have done as well on consoles such as the PS4 or the Xbox One.
Since Splatoon 2 is a more family friendly video game it could have easily have been overshadowed by various shooter titles such as Gears of War 4, Halo 5, Overwatch, etc. As far as the online multiplayer mode is concerned Splatoon 2 would have been perfect for the PS4 or the Xbox One.
As many of us have heard the Prompto VR Shooter mode will not be available for Final Fantasy XV. Even though, Square Enix showcased this feature back in 2016 for whatever reason they decided not to move forward with the VR mode in FFXV. However, in terms of sales without the Prompto VR mode Final Fantasy XV is still one of the most popular RPG titles in the gaming world right now.
On the PlayStation 4 Final Fantasy XV has managed to sell close to 5 million units worldwide and it seems like things are only going to improve as we move the year progresses. As far as whether or not FFXV will be affected in terms of sales don’t seem like much of a question especially for PS4.
Sometimes it’s hard to believe that Diablo III was released in the spring of 2012. Since its initial release back in 2012 it seems like Diablo has received expansion packs such as the “Reaper of Souls” and Necromancer which many people seemed to enjoy. Whether or not Blizzard Entertainment decides to make a Diablo 4 is something that has been in question for almost five years now.
Since Diablo III was first released it managed to sell over 5 million units worldwide which speaks volumes about how popular the series is. If Blizzard Entertainment does decide to release a Diablo IV it would be interesting to see whether or not the plot follows the events from the Diablo III series along with what new features would be added to the game itself.
As far as action adventure titles are concerned one of the many titles that gamers are looking forward to is the new Spider-Man game which is expected to be released some time in early to mid 2018. However, the new Spider-Man seems like it’s only going to be available for the PlayStation 4. While this PS4 exclusive makes the new Spider-Man more desirable to own some are questioning why the game is only available for the PlayStation 4 and not the Xbox One.
In terms of pricing the Xbox One is much more affordable then it was a few years and people can by an Xbox One S for around $299 plus tax at stores such as GameStop. Also, since the Xbox One X is expected to arrive in electronic retail stores in November 2017 it will be interesting to see if Insomniac Games decides to take steps in having the game ported for that console sometime in 2018.
There have been many people who waited for years to see the sequel for the first Xenoblade Chronicles game which was originally released in Japan back in 2010. When the first Xenoblade Chronicles game was first released in the early 10’s it was for the Nintendo Wii and the New Nintendo 3DS. Xenoblade Chronicles II is set to be released for the Nintendo Switch sometime in the near future but now many are question whether or not it will still happen due to the issues Nintendo currently has with Gamevice.
If the Nintendo Switch gets banned from retail then it would be great to see Xenoblade Chronicles 2 ported for the Nintendo 3DS XL similar to how the prequel was ported for the New Nintendo 3DS a few years ago. In terms of sales the original Xenoblade Chronicles game was decent for the New Nintendo 3DS since sold reached at least half a million units worldwide. It will be interesting to see what Nintendo decides to do with upcoming Switch exclusives in the future and whether we will see them for the Nintendo 3DS XL or not.
As many people know it has been recently reported that the Nintendo Switch has released more exclusive video games in the past few months than Xbox One has in the past couple of years. When it comes down to exclusive titles for the Xbox One we have seen pretty cool titles such as Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3 and others but there seems to be more third party titles for the that console in comparison to the Nintendo Switch.
The idea of having exclusive titles for a particular game console is one of the many things that attracts gamers to the game system that a particular comprised trying to sell. One of the reasons why consoles such as the Nintendo Switch has gained as much success as it did in a short period of time is because it has games such as Splatoon 2, Arms along with upcoming titles such as Super Mario Odyssey and Xenoblade Chronicles II that cannot be played on another game console. While having many third party support on the Xbox One is great for gamers who are into the Resident Evil of Mass Effect series some would that it could work against certain game companies more then help tgem
When it comes down to brand new video games some of the most exciting titles that we have seen in the gaming industry happens to projects that are funded on Kickstarter. Games such as Shenmue 3 is something that Sega fans have waited for since the early 00’s when Shenmue 2 was released for the Sega Dreamcast. Kickstarter is s great platform for not only funding brand new games but also bringing classic game series from the 80’s, 90’s and the 00’s back to life.
Speaking of new games Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night looks like a promising title which is supposed be similar to the Castlevania series. Kickstarter can really make a huge difference in the gaming world in terms of reviving classic video game series along the development of new games that will catch the eye of gamers who are looking for something different. Some people have the power to bring back classic video game series that gaming companies have not through online funding which is something that was inconceivable back in the 90’s and for most of the 00’s.
