Kathy Rain rides again on iOS and Android, this Nov. 23

Very little surprised me in 2016, at least not in the way Kathy Rain did. It was an exceptional adventure game, a genuine 9/10, accessible for both new players and veterans alike. Even now, it's my personal GOTY. Sadly, that doesn't transl...

Seeing Project Giant Robot in the Labo trailer, it made me wonder- With the exception of the Vitality Sensor, what other Nintendo projects were mentioned and then never heard from again?
