I just need the game, like asap, I have confidence in Nintendo, I think they're aware this entry will either rejuvenate the series or declare its death, so they can't mess it up

Full confidence. Bandai Namco was selected without a doubt for their Unreal 4 experience. I think they can do it very well with Nintendo directors and teams guiding them, extreme polishing. They also worked on Smash 4 so I have no doubts.
