Reading through Barry's post, it seems like his is speculation, too Just looking over Barry's proposed timeline makes me find it unlikely myself. Like them, having started development in early 2015 and finishing in mid 2015 just seems unlikely to me. They surely started development last year and most likely before Shattered Crystal was even released.
The most interesting thing about NX will be the cross console gaming. If they can really pull that off with full forwards compatibility, I think Nintendo could find great success again. Just imagine being able to play games like Zelda U at home and on the go. Cartridges would make sense for cross console gaming. I really like this idea. Sounds like it could really add to a game without being overwhelming. I could see Sony and Microsoft following with this. So, what I'm getting from this picture, it's a rating system with Miiverse comments? I'd rather just have perfectly normal Achievements. We had a Project Café thread.
Wow, Sonic Booms games are such a mess. But who knows, maybe no one working on it will magically make it good. Can't say this is a big loss, but on the other hand, VR Wii Sports knock-off isn't a big gain either. Can't wait to see how unfinished Fire & Ice is released, though.
Yay, no Apollo or Athena! I hope this is is good. I expect it to adapt the games, but maybe have some original cases, too, depending how long they want this to go. I can't wait to see Godot. Though, this could very well simply be an adaption of the first game.
Is Eggman still supposed to be a genius? The first two Boom games were bad and were among the worst selling games in the franchise, right? They seem to have taken that as people wanting another on. So, SEGA clearly isn't very bright. From that, I think we can deduce that SEGA simply learns what they want to learn, meaning it's not important whether or not this game bombs or not. =P
