Is the Hyperkin SupaBoy S a better game system than the PS Vita?

As many people know that Hyperkin SupaBoy S is almost like the Nintendo Switch version of the SNES.  The cool thing about the Hyperkin SupaBoy S is the fact that people can play any SNES game from the 90’s on it.  But when it comes down to popularity the Hyperkin SupaBoy S is not really on the same level as the PS Vita which definitely has better graphics and gameplay as far as 3D titles are concerned.  But when it comes down to PlayStation Vita titles there aren’t too many that can be compared those of the SNES as far as popularity is concerned.  While the PS Vita has better quality as far as graphics are concerned the replay value of many of the Vita games are not quite as high as the classics for the SNES such as Super Mario World, Super Metroid, Mega Man X and many others.

However, the Hyperkin SupaBoy S not sold nearly as many units worldwide as PS Vita especially considering the fact that its basically a hybrid version of the SNES.  In terms of which  console is better between the PS Vita and the Hyperkin SupaBoy S really depends on how each game system is looked at.  If we are talking about sales and quality the PS Vita would probably be considered a better game console.  But if we are talking about actual games for each console then the Hyperkin SupaBoy S would might have the slight advantage over the PS Vita depending on who you ask.

When it comes down to RPG titles of 00’s Kingdom Hearts II was probably one of the most popular games of the decade.   Kingdom Hearts II was released for both the PlayStation 2 and the PlayStation 3 between 2005-2006 and was the third game in the series following the release of Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories which came out in the Fall of 2004.  Ever since the original version of Kingdom Hearts II was released for the PlayStation 2 the game had managed to sell over 4 million units worldwide on that console alone while reaching over one million on the PlayStation 3.

In terms of whether or not Kingdom Hearts II would have worked on the Nintendo GameCube is debatable.  After all, the relationship between Square Enix and Nintendo was still a bit rocky following the fallout the two entities had back in the 90’s involving the N64.  As far as graphics and gameplay are concerned many argue that Kingdom Hearts II could have definitely worked on the Nintendo Gamecube.  However, its questionable on whether or not a GameCube port of Kingdom Hearts II could have sold as much as the PS2 version of the game considering how popular the console was throughout the entire decade.  If anything Kingdom Hearts II being released exclusively for PlayStation consoles is what helped the game out in terms of sales.

Should there have been an Earthbound game for the N64?

When it comes down to popular RPG titles on the Nintendo based consoles Earthbound  was arguably one of the most popular titles within its genre during the 16 bit era of gaming.  For many years one of the biggest questions that many people in the gaming world had in regards to the Earthbound series is about circumstances involving the cancellation of Earthbound 64.  As many people know Earthbound 64 was originally supposed to released for the 64 Disk Drive in the late 90’s but for some reason it didn’t work.    As a result HAL Laboratory and Ape Inc eventually started developing the cartridge version Earthbound 64 before it was ultimately cancelled in 2000.

While many people are bummed about the fact that Earthbound 64 got cancelled in 2000 it could have been for the best in the long run.  While seeing a 3D Earthbound game would have been cool between 1999-2000 the development team had reportedly struggled throughout the who process of making the game.  Besides the use of 2D graphics and gameplay is what drew people to the Earthbound series to begin with back in 1994.  If the development team for Earthbound 64 did not feel comfortable about what the final product would look like then the game could have been a complete disaster overall if it was still released.

Could Persona 5 work on the Nintendo Switch?

When it comes down to the Persona series it has managed to become popular in the RPG genre of gaming mainly on PlayStation based console.  When Persona 5 was released for the PS4 the game had managed to sell over one million units worldwide and is considered to be one of the best RPG titles of the 10’s decade.  The fact that Person 5 was featured on the PS3 and the PS4 may have been one of the many factors that contributed to the popularity of the game itself.  If Persona 5 was released for multiple game consoles including the Xbox One or the Wii-U the game may have sold less than it did on the PS4.

However, having Persona 5 on the Nintendo Switch would be different considering how popular that console is right now along with the fact that it managed to sell over 10 million units worldwide in less than a year.  Having Person 5 ported for the Nintendo Switch would sound great in theory especially since the console does not have too many RPG’s like it.  However, Atlus doesn’t really have any plans on bring Person 5 to the hybrid console in near future.

We all remember when Wasteland 2 came out  a few years ago for multiple game systems such as the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and even Microsoft Windows.  This post-apocalyptic game was arguably one of the best PC games of 2014-2015 and despite its level of popularity seemed better of on Microsoft Windows than the PS4 or the Xbox One.  There were various aspects about Wasteland 2 that contributed its replay value including a great plot along with branching storylines based on the decisions that players make throughout the game.

When it came down to sales revenue Wasteland 2 was impressive considering the fact that it reported managed to generate over $1.5 million within four days of its release.  While Wasteland 2 was one of the hottest PC games of 2014 its hard to tell whether or not the game will be as popular as it was a few years ago once its released for the Nintendo Switch.

 

Should Hyrule Warriors be ported for the Nintendo Switch?

Hyrule Warrior

Many people remember when Zelda Hyrule Warriors was released for the Nintendo Wii-U back 2014.  Since its release on the Nintendo Wii U Hyrule Warriors had managed so sell over one million units worldwide before it was ported for the Nintendo 3DS during the Nintendo 3DS in the spring of 2016. Even though, the Nintendo 3DS version of Hyrule Warriors did not sell quite as much as the Wii-U port it was still a pretty 3D cool hack and slash that many people would like to see ported for the Nintendo Switch.  However, since Hyrule Warriors is already available on the Nintendo 3DS there are some who would argue that porting the game for the Nintendo Switch would not make any sense at all.

Also, when it comes down to Zelda series the main title that is currently in the spotlight as of right now is Breath of the Wild which was released for the Nintendo Switch back in March 2017.  While Hyrule Warriors may have been a fun title for the Wii-U and the Nintendo 3DS its not quite as popular as Zelda: Twilight Princess or even Skyward Sword.  Besides would be much cheaper to simply buy the game for the Nintendo 3DS or the Wii-U since both consoles are not as expensive as they were a few years ago.

Should Final Fantasy XIII be ported for Nintendo Switch?

When Final Fantasy XIII was between released 2009-2010 many people praised various aspects of the game including the gameplay, graphics along with the story.  However, one of the main things that people questioned was the linearity of the game which arguably detracted from the quality of Final Fantasy XIII.  Despite, issues that some people had with Final Fantasy XIII it was still a pretty cool game.  Final Fantasy XIII was released for both the PlayStation 3 and the Xbox 360 but it was never ported for the Nintendo Wii.   Despite, never being ported for the Nintendo Wii many would be impressed to see both part 1 & 2 of Final Fantasy XIII on the Nintendo Switch.

final-fantasy-xiii-2-wide_1920x1080.jpgWhen it came down to sales part one Final Fantasy XIII had reportedly sold over one million units worldwide during its first day in Japan.  While the sales for the second part of Final Fantasy XIII was not high was part one during its first week it was still impressive seeing that part 2 managed to sell over two million units worldwide overall.  As impressive as the overall sales for Final Fantasy XIII 2 was the first game was more impressive since it managed to reach over five million units worldwide in terms of worldwide sales.  If both parts of Final Fantasy XIII are ported for the Nintendo Switch they would easily be RPG titles that would standout from what is already available for the hybrid console.
