    Ok, so we all know that Zelda BotW is the current darling of the Switch line-up, and will no doubt be held up as a must-have for any future Switch buyers for years to come.

    But let's throw out some game predictions. Anyone got any guesses on what will be the next big thing on the Switch horizon?

    I'm hoping Super Mario Odyssey is amazing.

    Pokemon on a big screen...? I hope so. But I'd love to see classic Mario Kart

    That's about it actually, Mario and Zelda until some other big titles make their way around to Nintendo. There will probably be another Super Smash Bros. and of course Mario Kart. I'm more hoping this is the system that gets big titles on Nintendo again. A new Metroid would be nice too.

    Nintendo put Metroid on ice for some reason but I'd be excited if Nintendo announces a new and original Metroid game.

    Yeah that would be awesome but as far as i know the Switch does not have a Sim card or cellular option so Pokémon Go wouldn't really be worth it. I would be happy with Mario Classic, that might be nice to play.

    Other games like 'Minecraft' would be nice. It also has that open world feeling but there are no objectives and missions to complete like Zelda. It does come equipped with a Accelerometer, gyroscope so maybe games that require that would be nice.

    My personal favourite would have to be "Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2" very nice.

    Pokémon Go is the oddity here. It's a game created by Niantic with permission basically to use the Pokémon brand from the Pokémon company. You have 27 versions of the standard issue Pokémon games from the original Gameboy up to the current 3DS, there are numerous others gameboy games, and a good number of full console Pokémon games as well starting with the original Pokémon Stadium and Pokémon Snap on N64. There are currently 87 different Pokémon games out there and only Pokémon Go isn't made directly by Nintendo for Nintendo products and of those 87 only 27 are the standard version games. Here's a list of all Pokémon games. It's about time for another console Pokémon game, or even to ability to play the standard version games on a large screen again.

    I wonder why Metroid has been missing lately. With all the hype about console-exclusives, you'd think Nintendo would be leveraging every unique property it has.

    You would think. When was the last Castlevania? They lost Final Fantasy years ago too. Metroid Prime and Super Smash Bros. Melee was why people bought Game Cube. Breath of the Wild is going to go strong until Mario Kart and the other new Mario come out. I miss the old goodies though.

    I'd place odds on the next Monster Hunter as the next biggest game in every market except NA.

    A new Castlevania would be killer! And it would tie in perfectly with he new Netflix animated series on the way.

    2 Call of Duty games on the wii u. then they started skipping wii u because of it's low power. Think we could get Call of Duty again on the switch or even another 1st person shooter of it's kind?

    Metroid would be a big selling point for me. I hope there is one in the works.

    I'm hoping for some great Mario games. Mario Galaxy was great-- Mario 3D World, also great. Mario Odyssey doesn't look all that exciting. Looks closer to that Mario game where he just watered the plants.

    If Nintendo could get a Final Fantasy game on Switch, it could be a big seller.

    Yeah, would be nice to see it back on Nintendo. Back to its roots.

    I'm actually most excited about the potential of the Virtual Console, though things are not looking rosy so far. The idea of playing a wide range of N64 games on the go sounds great.

    I'm waiting for a Super Smash sequel. That'll cause Pro Controller sales to spike.

    With you on that, though I expect there's quite a long wait for a new Smash Bros. I'd settle for a remastered version of the current one, for now!

    Nintendo has released a Zelda, Mario Kart, and Super Smash game on every recent new console generation. I hope the pattern doesn't get broken.

    Oddly enough, I actually found I preferred the Smash Bros Brawl version on the Original Wii to any of the other versions of Smash. (was the story mode that did it for me, and really quite liked how they did it) It was kinda like playing all your favorite games at exactly the same time, so was sorry to see that option not be there when the WiiU and 3DS versions came out. So if they bring out either a sequel or a new one, I really hope a story mode option like the Wii version had is something that we start seeing again on all future smash games. (and obviously still the regular way of playing smash for everyone else who prefers the streetfighter style ways of playing it)

    I would love to see a pokemon game on the Nintendo Switch especially Sun and Moon. But I think the best game that is coming out soon is Supper Mario Oyssey.
