To follow up on our earlier article on Nintendo’s plans to double the amount of Switch console’s produced in the next fiscal year, Nintendo will naturally expect to sell more of those units as well.

All of this comes from sources from the Wall Street Journal, and while they have traditionally been very reliable with matters like this, take this with a grain of salt. As we reported earlier, Nintendo plans to produce 16 million Switch units in the next fiscal year (April 2017 – March 2018). In that period, according to the Wall Street Journal, Nintendo plans to sell a total of 10 million of them. Adding to that the 2.5 million units Nintendo has targeted for this fiscal year (i.e. this March), this would bring the Switch’s expected first year sales to about 12.5 million. Certainly an ambitious goal, but given the Switch’s strong launch sales and positive buzz, definitely not impossible.

We will likely hear an official statement regarding Nintendo’s Switch plans at the company’s Fiscal Year Earnings release on April 27th.

On his personal Twitter page, SEGA’s Shun Nakamura announced that he is the producer of Sonic Forces. Let’s talk about his previous roles at the company.

Most will likely attach Nakamura to the very disappointing Sonic the Hedgehog title from 2006, as he was the game’s director. He’s done much more than that, however. Nakamura was also the director of Samba de Amigo, Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure, and Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg. Nakamura was involved with a number of previous Sonic games as well.


At the SXSW Sonic panel, SEGA debuted the first music from Sonic Forces by issuing the game’s main theme. What we have below is the instrumental version as composed by Tomoya Ohtani. In the final version, vocals will be added.

Super Bomberman R’s first big update is live. The game has been bumped up to version 1.2.

As detailed earlier today, the patch makes improvements to the gameplay, control input, and character controls. This applies to both online and offline battles.

Konami has promised to further update Super Bomberman R in the future to improve the game’s “play experience.”

Flatout 4 has a decent shot of landing on Switch. While speaking with One Angry Gamer, Susan Cummings from publisher Strategy First said that “It’s certainly possible.”

“It’s certainly possible. It’s definitely something Strategy First have been watching with interest – the early success of the Switch. I wouldn’t say anything is out of the question.”

Flatout 4’s chances on Switch could come down to the system’s sales and interest from the community. On the former point at least, the platform seems to be performing well on the market so far.


It’s been a long wait for actual details on Sonic Forces, formally known as Project Sonic 2017. SEGA finally lifted the curtain at a SXSW panel today by sharing a bit of gameplay and details.

Sonic Team head Takashi Iizuka called Sonic Forces an “evolution of Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations”. New concepts will be included. Three unique gameplay styles are planned, one of which was shown in the footage – modern Sonic.

SEGA just debuted the first gameplay from Sonic Forces – previously known as Project Sonic 2017 – at its series panel at SXSW. It may not be the best quality, but here’s what we have for now:
