* You may submit between 1 and 10 predictions for the year.
* If you write your predictions in numbered list/bullet point format that’d be helpful, but it's not required.
* You get 1 point for being right, half a point for being half-right.
* You have until the first Direct of the year (probably in January of early February latest) to submit predictions. Obviously we can continue speculation afterwards, but it won't net you any tasty points.
* No points for guessing stuff we already know! See what we already know… in the post above!
* Non-predictions or super safe ones (e.g.: "Nintendo will not colonize the Moon and pivot to selling Moonrocks") may be awarded no or negative points at the jury's discretion.

Here are my predictions for 2024:

* Nintendo's next video game console will be announced in the summer and released in the fall
* This new console will support backwards compatibility for Switch games, but not for Switch joy con
* The new console will be a hybrid console like the switch, however, there will be a way to use the screen on the console as a second screen while playing on the TV
* One of the games for the new console will be Super Mario Odyssey 2 and will release this year
* Another game for the new console will be a game from Good Feel using an existing Nintendo IP
* Another game for the new console will be Mario Kart 9
* Square Enix will announce an HD2D version of Chrono Trigger
* Concerning the games we already know about, I predict that Paper Mario TTYD will release before Luigi's Mansion 2
* For the Nintendo Switch Online service, Conker's Bad Fur day gets put on the N64 expansion pack
* Finally, following the commercial success of the Super Mario Bros. movie, we get a trailer for the Donkey Kong Movie
If any of these feel too vague or obvious let me know and I would be glad to spice them up.

Here's what Mr. GlubGlub submitted via Discord:

--- Quote from: Mr. GlubGlub ---I heard lots of remakes so I stand by a F-Zero GX remake this year
Switch 2 will be released in the first half of 2024
No Metroid Prime 4
Mario 64 remake
Bonus points: Kirbys Dream Course remake

--- End quote ---

We've also gotten the news regarding Golden Sun 1 & 2 hitting NSO on January 17th, so those are ruled out for future prediction submissions.

--- Quote from: M.K.Ultra on January 13, 2024, 12:50:49 PM ---If any of these feel too vague or obvious let me know and I would be glad to spice them up.

These are great, thanks for getting the ball rolling!

Should get my own in too while there's still time. I expect a Direct possibly as early as February 8th, so if anyone else wants to join, keep that in mind as a rough deadline until we know more details.

* Switch 2 will be announced in September 2024, for a March 2025 release. The name will be Nintendo Shift. Their stock price drops 9% following the announcement.
* NES Remix gets a sequel, called SNES Remix.
* Mario vs. Donkey Kong turns out to feature extensive amiibo support, causing spikes in prices for various out of print figures.
* Nintendo will publish the new Yacht Club Games title Mina the Hollower in in order to acquire limited time console exclusivity.
* NSO adds Turbografx-16 to the Expansion Pack tier in October. It launches with Bonk 2, Bomberman 93, and Castlevania Rondo of Blood.
* There will be a significant DLC expansion for Paper Mario The Thousand-Year Door that somehow upsets the fanbase.
* This year's Kirby game is a port of Kirby Battle Royale (3DS), revamped as a free-to-play release, with a convoluted monetization scheme.
* Reviews for Princess Peach Showtime will sit around a 72 average.
* NSO adds the following games to its GBA lineup: Mario Pinball Land, Drill Dozer, and Pokémon Pinball Ruby & Sapphire.
* Recycling this one from last year: Mario & Sonic at the 2024 Paris Olympics is announced. Luigi wears a beret in the trailer, and Yoshi eats an entire baguette.
