Nintendo Investor Meeting Highlights – April 26, 2018

Nintendo Investor Meeting – April 26, 2018

Nintendo had their investor meeting early this morning. Some new numbers, details and a management change came to light during the meeting. Let’s take a look at some of the highlights.

 

New President of Nintendo

When Tatsumi Kimishima took the reigns after the unfortunate passing of Iwata we knew it would only be temporary. Today Nintendo announced who would be taking over in when Kimishima retires in June, Shuntaro Furukawa. During his first interview he mentioned “I grew up playing the Famicom and come from that generation.” Also Mr. Furukawa is quite fluent in English which will be helpful when communicating with investors and the media.  Shuntaro Furukawa is only 46 years old, Kimishima said that it was conscious decision to skew younger with the newly appointed President.

Nintendo switch hack what it could mean

Nintendo switch hack good or bad

The Nintendo community is all a buzz. The Nintendo switch has been hacked finally, by a group named Reswitched project. Is the Nintendo switch hack a good thing or is it a bad idea? From all of the information I have been able to find about this Nintendo switch hack. I can’t see any good to come from this hack.

What is the Nintendo switch hack?

What could go wrong

You might be asking yourself what could go wrong. I’m glad you asked. If you have spent any time going back to the first Splatoon on WiiU. You will find nothing but  players using mods to stack there gear, and make themselves invincible. In my opinion playing with people like that takes all the fun out of the game. In another game series that I love (Pokemon) you can find cheating of the same kind. I’m talking about the competitive pokemon VGC. It is extremely hard to find top players who are not taking advantage of hack on the 3DS.

How this happens is they use a computer program that makes pokemon to the trainers specification. For example they can make a pokemon have stats that make it more defensive. At the end of the day this is wrong because, players modify the pokemon and import them from outside the game. Giving some players a unfair advantage.

top Pokemon players found cheating through hacks

Nothing good can come of this

In the end, nothing good can come from this. it is only going to open the door for players who want to gain unfair advantages in games. One more thing to point out is that modifying your switch the way the hack calls for would void the warranty on the switch. There would also be consequences for individualizes who are found using this hack. Back when pokemon Sun and Moon came out. There were copy of the games were put on to home brew. 3DS  players that were caught using the game were pertinently band from Nintendo online services like the eshop mainly or online play.  If you plan on hacking your Nintendo switch I ask that you think of all the consequences before going a head with it.

 

 

 

 

Pokémon for Nintendo Switch

Pokémon for Nintendo switch could be revealed soonpokemonnintendoswitch

Pokémon for Nintendo switch could be revealed as soon as April 26 2018, Nintendo is set to have it’s next investors meets on the 26th of April. I know it is only a investment meeting but, Nintendo has had a history of announcing big games, around there investment meetings.

Some bigger titles that have been revealed around the investor meetings are. Animal crossing new leaf, Brain age 3, the legend of Zeldad: A Link between worlds, Mario party Island tour, and Yoshi’s new island. In 2014 Nintendo announced Pokemon Ruby and Sapphire in a direct just before the investors meeting, and lets not forget the most recent major announcement to come from the investors meeting . The Nintendo switch itself.

Pokemon  for Nintendo switch, is the game everyone wants

Pokemon for Nintendo switch is the game everyone wants. It is also the game that could help Nintendo reach that 20,000,000 Nintendo switch’s sold this year. pokemon sells well on any Nintendo system it is released on. Pokémon for Nintendo switch could easily sell 16,000,000 copies world wide. That would be the same sales numbers pokemon Sun and Moon saw world wide.

 

Nintendo at E3 2018: What I Would Like To See

Nintendo at E3

supersmashbros-nintendo-670x335

This year at E3 I believe Nintendo has to bring there A game. The primary thing Nintendo has to address at E3 is the online service and the virtual console. Nintendo has kept us all in the dark for far too long, to the point where many people are starting to worry about how great it will be. We have all heard rumors of the NES and SNES game they are working on with leaderboards and online co-op, but will that be enough when we are seeing XBOX coming out with game pass, and you know they are going to have some more big announcements for the service come E3.

With the online service will we see things that we have all become accustomed to with the other consoles? Significant issues are stability and cloud saves in my opinion, a close second to that is, will we see the streaming feature that was stumbled across in rocket leagues new update with the ability to broadcast to twitch.

 

 

But what about the games GAMESGAMESGAMES

Another concern for me is what games will they bring to E3. So far the only game that we know from big N is the new Smash Bros game. At least that is the only one anyone wants to think about. Nintendo will be showing Smash off in an invite-only tournament, that is great and all but we need to see more because you know Sony will be showing off more of Spiderman, last of us and Detroit, three highly anticipated games.  I think Nintendo will have something more from Metroid to show us at E3. Will we possibly see the game that Retro Studios are working on?

 

Swing for the fences

I believe that 2018 is Nintendo’s to lose. We all know they can take E3 by storm with just one game. I want to see Nintendo do something different and blow everyone’s mind; I want to see them bring out there very own M rated game. What that looks like I’m not sure, let’s see them be creative and wow us all. What are your thought on Nintendo at E3?
