  • Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime On Hopes For An N64 Classic, Switch Online, And Sakurai’s Smash Roster Tweets — The Missing N64 Classic  Nintendo’s holiday line-up does not include a new retro console, a surprise for fans and media who expected the 2016 NES Classic and 2017 SNES Classic retro consoles to be followed by a 2018 Nintendo 64 Classic. Fils-Aime isn’t one to announce new products on the fly during an interview, but he made it sound like the window for Nintendo doing such a device is closed for now. “We were clear when we did the first two Classic series that, for us, these were limited time opportunities that were a way for us as a business to bridge from the conclusion of Wii U as a hardware system to the launch of Nintendo Switch,” he said. “That was the very strategic reason we launched the NES Classic system.” The Wii U had been fading fast by early 2016 and the Switch didn’t launch until early 2017. “So while consumers may have been anticipating something, we view these as limited time opportunities. We’ve also now been very clear that as the consumer looks forward to engaging with our classic content that is going to happen more and more with the subscription service. “Would you rule out an N64 Classic coming?” I asked. “I would not ever rule something out,” he said, “but what I can tell you is certainly that’s not in our planning horizon.”

  • Reggie Fils-Aimé on Nintendo Switch games and his 'Smash' main — Good read. Here are the main points. No details on when Metroid Prime 4 is coming out, but its well into development. I'm personally expecting winter 2019. They even talked about how Nintendo tries to drop its anchor games around big sales seasons, and they make up 60% of their revenue at the end of the calendar year. Super Mario Party exceeded expectations and Nintendo is sticking by that 20 million number.
