    • NinjaDanHey all!

      I wanted to say I'm super stoked with Nintendo's offerings on Switch. The quality and support have been exceptional and it's nice to say you're a Nintendo console owner with pride again. With that said, ARMS has probably not been the successful IP that they wanted it to be.

      Do you think Nintendo needs to release a major new 3D IP?

      Do you see Nintendo releasing another one on Switch?

      If so, what genre would you want?
