Post Obon isn't what Nintendo should afraid but post Golden Week. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has to show its strength. At Obon Switch has Splatoon 2 and Wii had Dragon Quest Swords. If it makes it until then it will have better sales. Wii took a big hit at hardware the following months because of the lack of software.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is a worldwide launch. There is no point giving bigger shipments now and cut them from next week.

I guess I get Sumikko, since the last one launched 7/21/2016, but why is everyone releasing their games in July...

It's just before summer holidays + Obon, and third Monday of July is a public holiday (that's why the latest Pokémon movie always comes out on the Saturday just before that holiday. Same for Yo-kai Watch / Snack World).

After summer holidays it is when we probably will start to see 3DS finally fading. Nintendo probably will focus on Switch on Christmas, so that's why everybody is rushing to release their 3DS before it happens.

I wonder if they all got a mail from Nintendo with the subject line : "ya better release all your 3DS shit before september or you'll get splatted by the Switch holiday train". Or something like that.

Hmm... now that you mention it... But Nintendo still has some 3DS stuff left, like that new multiplayer Kirby game, Fire Emblem Warriors, and more like Pokémon Stars, ha. Not to mention third-party stuff like SMT Deep Strange Journey, that Jake Hunter game from ASW, etc. (granted, there's nothing really too significant left outside DQXI, partly due to how short the announcement > release cycle for the 3DS).

I think they'll properly retire the 3DS after the Christmas holidays.

Now that I think about it, what's generally associated with lots of releases bundled together?... Wonder if there could be a 3DS price drop in July, like, July 13th (would explain why they put both Hey! Pikmin and Ever Oasis on the same day). Just a wild theory of mine, I know I've been "obsessed" about that non-existent price drop for a while, ha ha.

I'm also a firm believer of having a price drop. So, I'm on the train of obsession as well.

I am in agreement, doesn't mean that it won't happen. I think the smartest thing would be to just do a flat Yokai 4 in July 2018, but I see a spinoff or port coming either this fall or spring 2018 for Switch.

Ironically didn't YW3 do worse after taking an extended break between 2 and 3? Sure it probably has to do with the popularity of YW declining, but I'm sure YW3 would have sold even more than Busters had they released that instead in 2015. YW3: Sukiyaki is showing decent legs still though, so hopefully it maintains its relevance.

Just like to mention now COMG rankings

Splatoon 2 - 117
Dragon Quest 11 (3DS) - 121
Dragon Quest 11 (PS4) - 103
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe - 204

I expect Splatoon 2 to surpass dragon Quest 11 (3ds) preorders within the next 3 days. :o

before, when the threads were 5-6 pages, it would have a large share of discussion. And people would take it too seriously
With the number of posts we're reaching now, it barely factors into discussion. Plus Only 3-4 posts respond to the comg rankings anymore tbh.

don't see the harm.

I think the preorder numbers are one of many reasons DQ Switch is delayed. Splatoon is such a juggernaut, I wonder if Togashi will be playing that instead of DQ this summer...

Comg is probably one of the few stores taking pre-orders for Splatoon 2, maybe that's why it has so many points.

Also, a lot of people must be scared of not being able to get their hands on the game at launch. I mean, look at the Switch stock situation, it doesn't inspire much confidence.

It is a combination of 3DS getiing its last big hit and Switch its first big hit so early and close this year. There is still momentun for 3DS and it won't fall to low levels until Dragon Quest.

If some other companies want to benefit from this 3DS situation now is the right time.

I remember the original nds still survived a few months after Black and White 2 launched, so the 3ds probably won't retire this year
