I hope we get another Indie collaboration announcement at this Indie World like we got with Cadence of Hyrule.

That would be a great trend if Nintendo partnered up with a different small studio every year.

He’s given his reasons on believing why it’s possibly coming back. It’s not so unbelievable that Nintendo would help Kamiya get his dream game in some fashion.
Maybe it is, maybe it's not. It's just kinda gotten boring to talk about over and over again haha

Even if it is happening I doubt it will be happening any time soon. So we aren't really gonna know anything officially for a long time.

Scalebound is coming back in a bundle with Ridge Racer and Star Fox GP, announcement next week in game magazines.

You guys with your Scalebound ... you need to get blocked by Kamiya on Twitter for some time.

At the beginning of the year, Platinum games CEO said that it was 2019 going to be a very busy year for them, yet they've only announced and released Astral Chain.

A developer can be busy developing. ;D

I'd say doing Bayo 3, while at this time also developing Astral Chain, plus Babylon's Fall certainly sounds like a busy year. ^^

Is it confirmed? That would be so bizarre. Nintendo and Platinum are best bros, and vanquish would feel right at home on Switch.
well bayo+vanquish were just announced for ps4/xbo, with no word about switch

I think it's the PC versions from Vanquish and Bayo ... so it wouldn't be P* doing the port but maybe Sega Europe? Wouldn't be surprised if P* isn't involved much or at all.

You can already buy Bayo 1 on Switch, which is probably why they aren't doing this bundle. Hopefully we see Vanquish standalone at some point, it would be weird if it didn't make it.

there is a chance.gif

If it's a double pack, I'm not surprised not having that on Switch. But Vanquish as a stand alone game, come one. It's not a very high bar. I will wait a few weeks before giving up.

of course i wasn't expecting the double pack, specially since bayo 1 is published on switch by nintendo and not sega. but i was hoping there'd be a separate announcement for vanquish on switch, even if it's eshop only.

I don't think there's a point for Platinum to release a non-60 fps version of Vanquish anymore.

I agree that it doesn't bode well, but let's not lose hope. Until next direct at least. After that...

My guess: the Star Fox Grand Prix gameplay was an Unreal Engine 4 mockup made by a trusted source who wanted out of the game and decided to troll on their way out

Soooooo

are we expecting a Nintendo Direct (or a mini) at the end of 2019/beginning of 2020?

Indie World (JAPAN) December 27, 2018
Indie Highlights (Europe) January 23
Nintendo Direct February 13
-----
Indie World May 31
Pokémon Direct June 5
Nintendo Direct June 11
-----
Indie World August 19
Nintendo Direct September 4

Since Indie World are globally announced, there's a trend I guess..

Liam has show substantial stuff. I know he keeps bringing Scalebound up. Don’t hold Star Fox GP against him. Plenty of insiders got it wrong. A bad source playing hoaxes or whatever on everyone.

What if we get a new Metroid game in the form of a Nintendo x Indie collab like Cadence of Hyrule?

If Nintendo is struggling to find a dev to work on it, I’m sure there’s tons of indie ones who’d jump at the chance given how influential Metroid is on the indie scene.

Do you want a regular Metroid game or a non traditional Metroid game like Cadence of Hyrule?

I honestly don't think they'd want an indie Metroid in the same genre. If one happens (could be nice), I think it'd be more a different genre, like the recent Zelda spinoff.
That said, I really doubt Metroid is on that list of collabs (like other hardcore IPs they have difficulties to manage). Hell, the next Star Fox would probably be indie lol.
