It looks that way because that's exactly what it is.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

Today it was announced that Dead Cells will be getting a retail release in August. Between this and the Bloodstained prequel game, my hands are gonna be busy!

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

The current rumor going around is that Retro's next game is a Star Fox racing game. Eurogamer reports that they've heard similar things through their sources.

Started playing Kong the other day. It's alright, I'm sure it's just me but there's just something strangely generic about the whole affair.

A Star Fox racing game sounds like it could be fun. Itíd be a good way for Nintendo to do a new racing game for the Switch without it being another Mario Kart so soon. Plus it could be interesting since I assume it would involve flying rather than the normal kart style racing.

Maybe both, a la Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed.

So soon? It's 4 years old already.

Or probably more akin to Diddy Kong Racing.

If its as fun as Diddy Kong Racing I would be in day one. I like Mario Kart but DKR was so much fun.

Look at the last sets of NPD numbers. In February, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe was #1 on the Switch chart and the #9 title across all platforms. In March, MK8D was #2 on the Switch chart (behind Kirby) and the #7 title across all platforms.

The 'all platforms' rank might even be low since that doesn't include digital numbers. Considering that it's barely been on the Switch for a year and still doing crazy numbers (consistently outselling Zelda, Odyssey, etc.), I do think it's too early for a followup.

Probably! That's the comparison everyone's been making. I never actually played Diddy Kong Racing. (Didn't have an N64.)

Right, but Nintendo just released Mario Kart 8 Deluxe on Switch last year. I donít expect an official new Mario Kart for a while.
