Nintendo expects to ship 20 million Switch units this fiscal year, but the prestigious Osaka-based firm Ace Economic Research Institute appears to have more faith in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!/Let’s Go, Eevee! then the house of Mario and Zelda itself. The firm’s analyst Hideki Yasuda recently released his analysis of the company’s finances, and came up with an intriguing forecast. He expects Nintendo’s revenue to for the full fiscal year to be 1.36 trillion yen, with an operating income of 330 billion yen.

This would bring Switch shipments all the way to 42.79 million units by March 31st, 2019, instead of the 37.79 expected by Nintendo. Yasuda-san mentions that according to some mass-media sources … [Read more...] about 25 Million Switch Shipments This Fiscal Year Expected by Analyst with Production Increase This Summer
It’s no secret Rainbox Six Siege has taken the online community by storm since its launch nearly three years ago. Despite stumbling out of the gates early, the team-based shooter has seen a huge uptick in both player count and popularity, as the “live service” title is in the middle of its third season of DLC. While Ubisoft has done an extraordinary job bringing together the game’s communities on home consoles and PC, don’t expect the company to do the same for the Nintendo Switch anytime soon. According the Rainbow Six Siege brand director Alexandre Remy, there are no plans to bring the game over to the Nintendo Switch. Remy cites a number of reasons for the developer’s inability to bring the tactical-shooter to Nintendo’s hybrid console, such as the system’s technical constraints and the inability for the CPU not being able to withstand its online multiplayer game structure. This is specifically important, as the CPU … [Read more...] about Rainbox Six Siege ‘Not Possible’ on Nintendo Switch
Chrales, a well-known dataminer and leaker for Pokemon GO, recently revealed a ton of new shiny sprites that have been added to the game. While none of these new shiny forms are actually obtainable in the game at the time of this writing, the leak included shiny variants for some Pokemon that aren’t even available in the game in any capacity. This includes second-generation Pokemon Smeargle, which is the only gen 2 Pokemon that has yet to be added to Pokemon GO. The list also features third-generation Pokemon Kecleon, as well as Clamperl and its evolved forms, Huntail and Gorebyss.

There are still a few other holdouts besides the ones already mentioned, like … [Read more...] about Pokemon GO Adding Kecleon and Smeargle?

Chrales is a well-known leaker within the Pokemon GO community and has leaked tons of information before, with one of the more recent being yet another nod toward an eventual gen 4 release. As far as leakers go, Chrales’ high-profile status earns him much more trust than other data miners and his latest reveal is a massive influx of new shiny models to the game, including Voltorb, Ponyta, Totodile, and Slowking. While the majority of the list is composed of Gen 1 and 2 Pokemon, a couple third generation pokemon also appear, namely Kecleon and Gorebyss. More than that, however, this list contains well over 100 shiny models for Pokemon GO players, but it’s worth mentioning that just because the models have technically been added to the game, that does not mean they will be appearing in the game any time soon.Furthermore, it’s noteworthy that a majority of these Pokemon are designated as Lucky Pokemon and/or have 99999 CP, which makes these … [Read more...] about Massive Pokemon GO Leak Adds 100+ New Shiny Models
