    Isn’t there supposed to be mobile game coming soon? And I’m guessing there’ll be a Switch game in a year or two since New Leaf is like 4 years old now. Those would seem like more important things to talk about than an amiibo update for an old game but what do I know?

    I’d very much rather see a ND dedicated to a new AC game as opposed to this.

    Came out the same day as The Last of Us
    Vastly outperformed it and is still played by millions to this day, while TLOU was forgotten overnight.

    Nice “facts” you have there. And once again you’re comparing apples to oranges. AC:NL ain’t a survival zombie horror, dumbass.
    What AC:NL would soon become after this Direct announcement would be a amiibo cashgrab.

    Once again Travis tries to prove himself to Daddy Nintendo but just ends up looking like a fucking retard in the end.

    Not to mention an apparent huge lack of understanding of install base.

    I’d be legitimately surprised if this direct wasn’t at least 25% about that mobileshit AC that’s supposed to come out sooner or later.

    A hunk of plastic and a hunk of cardboard are very different and will be recycled in very different ways when thrown out.

    PS3 was a much older platform with a much higher install base (At the time)

    New Leaf still outperformed it.

    Sony had to rerelease TLOU for PS4 to make up for the fact that they had no games. New Leaf still out performed it.

    You know that no game joke when there are over 100 games on PS4 is getting really old.

    Most of those games are indie games that are available on other platforms, including Wii U.

    I actually went over the complete list of PS4 releases on Wikipedia to research my article on notable PS4 bombs, and I was shocked at how little content is actually on the PS4. You’re stuck playing Watch Dogs and Destiny while I’m playing Hyrule Warriors and Bayonetta 2.
