They won't be able to compete, because skatebirds just try too hard. They can never be defeated.

Given:
- Weirdos still gettin’ mad at Ellie’s love life in The Last of Us 2.
- So many analysis and theory videos about Death Stranding. So many.
- New Nintendo Labo kit.
- Splatoon 2 continues to update with new gear, weapons, etc while still not charging. For some reason this also continues to fly under the radar.

Maybe:
- Snack World gets localized finally, but on Switch instead of 3DS.
- Town comes out, is decent for what it is, but nothing extraordinary a la Ever Oasis.
- Just Dance 2019 for the Wii.
- Elser Scrolls 6 gets a proper trailer.

Long Shot:
- EA finally moves on to the Sims 5, instead of pack after pack after pack for Sims 4.
- Moogle as a DLC Smash character, kupo.
- Yacht Club finally unveils a brand new IP.

A revision of the Playstation Classic will come out that only plays Final Fantasy VIII with added skip cutscene and quicksave features, and also an unlockable Moogle buddy who watches you play Triple Triad and warns you before you make a play that instantly loses to Same Wall. And no one will ever need to play any other video game again.

Also, in a twist that surprises everyone, including the programmers, Waluigi will appear in Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale 2.

Or a version that just pre-abolishes all Triad rules except Open/All, that would be fine too

What, no. I like Plus, and Same is okay. It's really just Same Wall that throws a wrench in everything.

Elemental is pretty awful, too, though.

Really just need a version where you have full control of the rules, in addition to that moogle buddy.

Some third Party character, but from a company that has really good rapport with Nintendo. All relatively safe and predictable choices
Well, good thing THAT happened in 2018 instead of 2019, otherwise I'd have been totally wrong.

Fuck I hate Persona.

Joker attacks with bladed weapons, wears a cape-like coat, and is an anime teenager. His base-game is all about saving the world and maybe making people kiss. He's basically another Fire Emblem rep.

New spicy prediction I’ll probably completely overlook next December.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 is just the start of Nintendo and Disney getting real cozy like. We will probably hear the announcement of a new Rogue Squadron game or similar Disney Subsidiary/Nintendo collaborations. As it looks like Nintendo increasingly becomes Disney’s preferred game partner, people will start to wonder if Nintendo is being eyed up for acquisition.

Microtransactions are shit - major publishers will continue forcing their developers to compromise game design to enable microtransaction cash flow by tying compensation incentives and success metrics directly to loot box sales. This will continue even as more and more jurisdictions restrict or ban this gambling bullshit, and real revenues tank, because loss you can measure and quantify is superior to quality-based success.

The Switch will rock and roll - in part because Nintendo will be among the few hold-outs against this scourge.

Gamers are trash and also dead - we'll continue to see endemic bigotry and hostility threaded throughout "gamer" culture even as it becomes more and more marginalized. Major community figures and those that obtain break out success will be those like SonicFox. We'll see more tournaments and events organized to try to balance out structural inequalities.

Doom (2019) will be the Dark Souls of FPS.

Mega Man 3 The Robots Are Revolting will be rediscovered for the gem it is.

I think Kingdom Hearts 3 will come out and be Mostly Okay, but get extremely positive review scores by virtue of existing.
