They sold well, both several million, it's just that the NSMBs sold waaaayy more.

I think a lot of folk will need convincing by Metroid Prime 4, myself included. Remember that demo they did for Metroid Prime Hunters on the DS, the one that they packed in with the first version of the DS? Do something like that, but with all mod cons, online deathmatches, and all that bollocks.

Edit: call it Global 'Wish They Did Another F-Zero Instead' Testfire.

Really?  I'm sort of presuming it'll be more of the same, such has the gap and the fan demand been; so you know if you'll go mad for it or not already.  

Then again, Nintendo being Nintendo, it could just as easily be a motion-controlled virtual pet simulator. (Next IF: if you develop a Nintendo-species motion-controlled virtual pet simulator, which one would you pick?)

Yeah, Animal Crossing was the obvious choice - well done there. I can't think of anything else.

Animal Crossing. You and four players just mingle in a nice randomly created village for a while. You can take part in whatever fun new features have been added, get to know the new animals and one another, or just wonder about alone soaking in the lovely new visuals and music. It won't be challenging - in fact, it encourages you to take it slow. The Global Test Ease.
I'd quite like that as an actual game, it wouldn't happen because I don't think they'd want an always online Animal Crossing but I'd love the idea of being able to share my town in real time with other people.

I think you're right Treesmurf and why I went with the idea of a City hub world, where you can go meet up etc then go back to your own little town.

*presses the Switch*

IF you were in charge of creating something like Achievements/Trophies for the Switch, what would it be called? Also - second question, cos I'm in a cherky chappy mood at the mo - what would your Achievements for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe be?

Badges. Like in that 'game' with the money-hungry rabbit on 3DS. You can use them to dress up your (rather bland, let's face it) Switch main menu. They add to a points score too, of course, because that's what all the kids need to make their e-organs feel good and firm; but this way they're not entirely pointless (pun intended) for everyone else.

As for MK8D, there'd be one for coming in 12th place on the first track of the Special Cup, called 'Cloudtop Snooze'.

Stamps - like they started to introduce for Miiverse anyway on the WiiU. They were essentially achievements. I loves me Nintendo, but when they said "we're not doing achievements or anything", and then did exactly that 5 minutes later... hmmm. They don't have to be used on Miiverse - but they have to look like 2 colour stamps. Get creative, devs!

As for Mario Kart 8: Obvious landmarks are to win a race / grand prix / all grand prixsxsxs / ghost time-trial / all time-trials. As for fun ones... er... I'll have a think - sorry

Coins and Stars, with different coloured Coins and if you get all the Coins you get a Star with each game having one Star.

I'd have same as Jim then things like win a race on Baby Park as a Baby Character

Would have said Stars but prefer the sound of Badges or Stamps as it would give them more artistic license.

Each game has a pair of trousers, with each new challenge completed moving the zipper down by one notch until you see the character's genitalia. If you get every moon in Super Mario Odyssey, you'll be treated to the same sight as Peach is getting on her wedding night: Bowser's big ol' turtle coming out of the shell that is his nice, white tux.

The zippers in Mario Kart are for beating every cup with three stars at every rank, then beating all the staff ghosts. If you do them all, you can see my what's in my trousers: victory.

So in awe of Drunka's response that I was too intimidated to post here for a little while (that, or I was on holiday for a bit and forgot about it - YOU decide!). This was maybe the first IF question I've posed where I have no clear idea of my own answer, too. The Badge system sounds like a great idea: a more obvious reward than just numbers climbing higher. We should write to Nintendo forthwith. Wink Anyhoo, time to go again.

IF you were in charge of Nintendo's console R&D department right now, what would you be working on?

I still think VR is a future medium and Nintendo have even dabbled in it again now with Mario Kart VR also they've spoke about it for Switch in interviews.

Really I'd be working on the Switch replacement, I hear you scream it's to soon but we know companies almost start looking right away at the next thing. The Xbox One X isn't even out yet but Spencer has even said their is a New Xbox in the works.

For me personally it be a New Nintendo Switch with 4K output and a 1080p screen, I'd think it sell okay as the New 3DS has sold 12ish Million and PS4 Pro since it came out has been 1 in 5 PS4's sold since it launched which by my guess is 4 Million.

Either that or real-live Pokémon. Everyone with a stock option in Nintendo would never need to work again.
