I love how we can always take a company at their word. They also said the NX wasn't the successor to the Wii U either. Just look at all the huge releases its had lately!

It doesn't matter what they say, what matters is what they actually end up doing.
This is what RPG's are about! Killing people and taking their cool stuff!

The Switch is not the 3DS successor. If anything, the Switch is a unification of handheld and console, but it's considered a home console, the successor to the Wii Ugh.

I think it-s a successor to both. It's a hybrid, so it only makes sense for it to succeed both consoles. Other than that, dedicated handheld gaming is dying thanks to the mobile market, so I doubt anyone in the future will make a dedicated handheld device.

I don't think that's the case. It's just that no one can seem to match Nintendo when it comes to portable handhelds.

People who think the Switch fills the same marketing niche as the 3DS are some the stupidest people on this board.

A lot depends on where the Switch goes.

Right now its too expensive to be a typical handheld. Nintendo made the 2DS to appeal to a portion of the market that just wants a cheap handheld for Pokemon and one or two other games.

I don't see that carrying over to Switch.

Pokemon Switch will be the big decider IMO. If it has a noticeable drop in sales compared to the previous games they will have to do something.

What exactly, I don't know.

With Switch, suddenly Pokemon will become a lot more expensive to play. The system is a lot more expensive, games on Switch are a lot more expensive. Then you have paid online too.

Just like when Nintendo said the DS was not the successor to the GBA, right?
