I know Nintendo has always been very keen on their local multiplayer abilities, like you and a mate being able to pop your 3ds's out and bang on some mario party or mario kart without the need for internet. I personally love this and sadly Nintendo is one of the last game develeopers/hardware companies that still support these activities.
I've noticed a big emphasis on this in the new Switch trailer as well. But on the other hand, AAA games nowadays scarcely have this feature. (Imagine your last LAN party … yeah… exactly).
So I guess my question is: Do you chaps think Nintendo may have convinced big dollar companies to bring back offline lan multiplayer back into their AAA games ? Because that would be amazing!!
