There are so many upcoming titles that people are waiting to release for various game consoles including the Nintendo Switch in 2018. Bloodstained Ritual of the Night is probably one of the main video games that Switch owners are looking forward too right. As we know the 2.5D action adventure game will be featured for consoles such as the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation Vita and the Nintendo Switch.
What is surprising about Bloodstained Ritual of the Night is that the game was never announced for the Nintendo 3DS. As a handheld gaming system the Nintendo 3DS is more popular than the PlayStation Vita. However, since the Nintendo Switch is considered to be a hybrid console there is probably no need to have Bloodstained Ritual of the Night ported for the Nintendo 3DS.
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.
When it comes down to the PlayStation Vita many people say that the handheld gaming console paled in comparison to the likes of the Nintendo 3DS and the PSP. But for some reason it seems like we don’t get the chance to see many PS4 games receive ports for the PlayStation Vita. There are games such as Overwatch, Titanfall 2, Final Fantasy XV and many others that could turn the heads of gamers and make theme want to purchase the PlayStation Vita.
Also, having video game titles such as Final Fantasy XV and Overwatch ported for the PlayStation Vita could help the sales of the console as well since Nintendo 2DS & 3DS does not have the ability to play those type of games. There should definitely be more mainstream PS4 titles that should be ported for the PlayStation Vita unless Sony decides to release a new portable game console in the future.
Both the Nintendo DS and the Nintendo 64 were memorable gaming systems that many people still cherish to this day. While both the Nintendo DS and the N64 bring back a sense of nostalgia to retro gamers it would be tough for them to choose on which on was better over all. In terms of sales the Nintendo DS managed to sell over 154 million units worldwide while the Nintendo 64 had managed to reach over 32 million.
While the Nintendo DS sold more than the N64 its debatable on whether or not it was more popular. When the N64 was first released in the mid 90’s it was very since it was the first ever 64-bit game console that the world has seen. In terms of availability it seems like the Nintendo DS has been retail long along with the fact that the console had more games overall. There games such as Super Mario 64, MRio Kart 64, GoldenEye 007, Zelda Majora’s Mask, Perfect Dark and others that sold millions on the N64. But on the Nintendo DS we had titles such as Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, HeartGold, SoulSilver, Diamond along with Mario and Zelda games that people would spend their money on without thinking twice about it. The fact companies such as Microsoft and Sony went beyond 128 bit gaming in the 00’s in some way made the 64 bit Nintendo DS very popular. In fact the Nintendo DS sold more than the PSP did in the 00’s.
The idea of having such a popular game such as Splatoon 2 ported for the Nintendo 3DS is definitely something that many people would love to see. However, the chances of it actually happening is something that is questionable. There was never a 3DS version of the original Splatoon game since it was exclusively for the Wii U. Splatoon 2 is considered to be a Nintendo Switch exclusive and making it available for any other game console could possibly diminish the value that the game already has on the Nintendo Switch.
If Nintendo really wanted Splatoon 2 to be available for the Nintendo 3DS they would have ported the game for the handheld 3DS device back in July 2017. If Splatoon 2 was ported for the Nintendo 3DS on one hand it would help the game become more popular in terms of sales. On the other hand having Splatoon 2 on the 3DS could possibly turn some attention away from the Nintendo Switch which is very hot in the gaming market right now. Making Splatoon 2 a Nintendo Switch exclusive was probably a good decision on the part of Nintendo in the long run.
For over the past few years gamers has the opportunity of seeing some very cool fighting titles released for consoles such as the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. When it comes down to fighting games between 2015-2017 two major titles that people like to mention is Tekken 7 and Street Fighter V. In terms of which game was more successful in terms of sales many people are likely to say that Tekken 7 had a significant edge over Street Fighter V in countries such Japan.
However, before Tekken 7 was first released many people knew that it was as most likely going to be the last game in the series. The fact that Tekken 7 is most likely going to be the final game in the series was probably one of the things that made people want to buy the game despite how expensive the game was during its release. When Capcom had released Street Fighter V in February 2016 the development of the game itself was not fully complete similar to how Soul Calibur V was back in February of 2012. However, after the story mode of Street Fighter V was fully complete along with the addition of more characters it turned out to be a really good game overall. In terms of which game was successful overall is something that is debatable between Capcom and Namco fans.
