Vookcast #198: Are Limited Digital Releases Nintendo’s New Thing?
On this week’s Vookcast, Angelo is joined by Ollie and Luke to find any substance in industry analyst Michael Pachter suggesting that Nintendo ditch the Switch (sort of). We also delve further into how much of a success the Switch is compared to some of Nintendo’s other phenomenal console sales.
Plus a previously Japanese-only classic gets a re-release announcement, following the disturbingly familiar trend of being available digitally for a short period of time. What’s with that?
Do you think Nintendo would benefit from going handheld-only in their next generation console? How many different versions of the Nintendo DS did you own? Will Nintendo ever open Pandora’s Box and release a localised version of Mother 3? Join the discussion in the Vooks Discord!
