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.
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.
Ever since, the Killer Instinct series made its return back the Fall of 2013 it has turned the heads of gamers who were fans of the series back in the 90’s when it was featured in game consoles such as the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. Even though, the gameplay and mechanics that Double Helix Games had created for the latest Killer Instinct game was impressive the game did not sell a much as man people had hoped.
Some might argue that making Killer Instinct an Xbox One exclusive may have played a role on why the game did not do as well in terms of sales. After when the Xbox One was first released in 2012 it was priced around $499 while the PS4 was $399. Despite, Killer Instinct not doing to well in terms of sales if Double Helix Games ever decides to make a sequel it should be for multiple game consoles such as Xbox One, Xbox One X, PS4, Nintendo Switch, etc.
When it comes down to the racing genre of gaming there are so many titles that people enjoy on video games consoles such as the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, etc. When it comes down down to Nintendo based consoles the only racing titles that comes to mind is the Mario Kart series. While the Mario Kart series has provided many people with an unforgettable gaming experience for over the past two decades there has not been to many memorable racing titles that we have seen on Nintendo based consoles.
Back in the 90’s and the early 00’s the F-Zero series was still popular while providing a gaming experience that was arguably better than any of the Super Mario Kart games. Even though we have some impressive games for the Nintendo Switch such as Fast Racing Neo which is pretty much a spiritual successor to the F-Zero series the game has received the rype of recognition that it deserves. With the exception of the Mario Kart series it seems like racing genre of gaming has declined in popularity when it came NES down to Nintendo based consoles and has been a trend that has been going on since its he 90’s.
Super Mario Maker was probably one of the most creative games for the Wii U back in 2015. Ever since Super Mario Maker was released for the Wii U and the Nintendo 3DS the game had managed to sell millions worldwide. Super Mario Maker had managed to sell over 2 million units worldwide for the Nintendo 3DS while doing over 3 million for the Wii U since the Fall of 2015.
Whether or not we see a Super Mario Maker 2 in the future is s bit hard to tell right now especially since Super Mario Maker was released almost two years. If Nintendo ever decides to make a Super Mario Maker 2 it will probably come in a few years since many people are still enjoying the Super Mario Maker game that was released in 2015. The idea of having a 3D based Mario Maker title is something that would be interesting since many people are fond of titles such as Super Mario 64, Super Mario Galaxy, Super Mario Sunshine, etc.
