I wonder if Xbox will announce a game or 2 for the Switch at this Direct. Hi-Fi Rush seems the most likely.

What would be your dream game to come from xbox to the switch 2?

Mine would be Rare Replay:)

Rare Replay makes a lot of sense to release on Switch with many of those games originally being on Switch.

I would like for Xbox and Nintendo to work out a deal for a new Diddy Kong Racing. IMO DKR was a much better cart racer than MK64.

The Fable series, from 1-3. 2 is still only playable on Xbox consoles I believe unless it's on gamepass PC.

I'm curious if Hi-Fi Rush really is going to Switch 2 instead.

It is time to announce GTA V for the Switch (not gonna happen though)

Lol it would almost be a troll move to add it after this long. But I bet they'll put either that or VI on the next system.

I think GTA 4 port will come first (this year) and GTA V might indeed come on Switch 2, since it's been so long and they skipped entire gen not releasing GTA V on the Switch. So GTA 4 on Switch 2024, GTA V on Switch 2 2025 and GTA VI on Switch 2 in 2026.

Article says first half of 2025. May wish to change that to 2024.

Can't wait to see what is on offer.

I definitely don't know what you are talking about. It 1,000% said 2024 and I didn't just fix it. Nope. But seriously, thank you for pointing out that typo.

I expect the next Nintendo Direct to be Jun 20th 2024.
I'm excited to hear what 3rd party we will get!

Excited to hear about some of the new games coming out from nintendo

The main takeaway is they probably don't have much 1st party stuff left for the Switch, I honestly doubt there'll be another full direct before the next system is announced. There could still be cross-gen titles though.

Ooof. Was holding out for this or an update for PALworld sales for my next poll. Hope their partners come through

So Xbox is offering at least 4 games between Sony/Nintendo…but did Xbox even ask for a single game in return ? Even 1 small game ? You know as leverage to get something back for their own core base ?
Of course Xbox didn’t. They don’t care. MS just wants money, and doesn’t care in the slightest about it’s fans getting something in return.

They get Marathon (whenever it gets out) and MLB the show

Scoopz tslog (on 20 February 2024)

Your take doesn't make sense. Nintendo and Sony haven't asked for these games. MS offered to put them on these rival platforms due to its disappointing commercial performance with Xbox. So they have zero leverage to be offering these games conditionally. They need the revenue. Sony and Nintendo are doing just fine.

I don't see any Nintendo top franchises going anywhere. But perhaps games like Another Code or Bayonetta could.
