I mean, Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition was a remake not a port, so I would count it as one of the big in-house titles.I'm kinda just sitting here like, is Nintendo actually going to do something for the rest of this year? In terms of big name in-house titles that isn't port #512 or a minigame collection there's been New Horizons and Origami King, that's it.
They have had two directs so far. You can talk poorly of the content perhaps, but we do know of titles like SMTV and Nocturne coming to Switch."Tell us that there's a plan!"
In all seriousness, and not to sound like a shill, Nintendo is in a very different situation when compared to the competitors. I think it is a little unfair to come at them as such. Both XBOX and PlayStation have spent the past few years preparing for 2020 as this is their consoles’ launch year. Nintendo is mid-way through theirs and most of their big titles have already happened. Their studios are likely still working on new games or are just finishing up. Next-Level, Intelligent Systems, Monolith, The Smash team, Gamefreak, Good Feel, and the Splatoon/Animal Crossing team all had new titles this year or the previous and are either just done or continuing to add. We can likely also count the Zelda team, Odyssey team, Retro Studios, and Bayonetta 3 team out as those games seem way to early to present. I think we are just at that middle point in the console where we are not going to be getting much. I guess that is what we get for having a banger 2017 and a fairly decent 2019.What's funny to me though, is that the rabid fanbase seems to be split between whining about no reveals (though given the above statement it's at least a tad justified for once), and the counters of "muh pandemic" as to why they've been dragging their feet through the majority of 2020, despite the fact that everyone else seems to be getting announcements and reveals out the door at a reasonable rate even with the circumstances. Yet Nintendo seems to be able to get away with that dried up excuse because, reasons.
I am also guessing that Nintendo is holding off a direct due to the Microsoft and Sony presentations. They clearly cannot outmatch due to the previously stated, so they should probably let the hype die down. At best I think we will get a direct with a few new titles. I am expecting a new Smash character reveal, possibly some Mario stuff like the 35th anniversary and 3D World port, and maybe a new HAL title as Kirby seems to work on a 2-3 year schedule. Only problem is that the new Kirby is said to be different, so it may take more development time. A new ARMS or Mario Kart maybe possible as the development team also works on a 3 year schedule.
I am guessing that the virus slowed down 3rd party Smash reveals, so our character may be an uneventful first party like Rex and Pyra or god forbid a new Pokemon.
