Best news story in weeks. Can't wait to see how this plays out on the Japanese sales charts.

Ian Sane:
For all the success the Switch has had there appears to be someone high up in Nintendo who is very insistent that Wii-style gimmicks are still where things should really be at.  I think back to how much focus of the Switch reveal was on HD rumble and the motion control elements of the joycons, features that if they never existed would have had no negative impact on the Switch's sales whatsoever.  1-2 Switch was also a major focus.  The game was poorly received and yet somehow a sequel got greenlit and here they are releasing it despite it testing poorly internally and there being essentially no market for it.  And it even gets a physical release!  Someone big at Nintendo is pushing this nonsense and has enough clout that no one can tell him "No, we're not releasing a game that we all know sucks that's a sequel to a game no one gives a damn about!"  Nope, instead they're spending money to print copies to clutter up the cheap bin at Gamestop for years to come.

I want to know what is up with that horse  ???
