Nintendo’s looking to knock it out of the park

Every quarter of the fiscal year, Nintendo provides us with supplementary information about their latest earnings release updating us with things such as, in this case, dates for upcoming Nintendo titles.

Last fiscal year brought us Pokémon Rumble U, Game & Wario, Pikmin 3, New Super Luigi U, Lego City Undercover, The Wonderful 101, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, Rayman Legends, Wii Sports Club, Wii Party U, Super Mario 3D World, Scribblenauts Unlimited, Mario & Sonic at the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games, Wii Fit U, and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for Wii U. For Nintendo 3DS, we got a whopping 23 games including Freakyforms Deluxe: Your Creations Alive!, Tomodachi Life (Japan), Fire Emblem: Awakening, Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins, Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Mario & Luigi: Dream Team, Inazuma Eleven 3: Lightning Bolt, Inazuma Eleven 3: Bomb BlastPokémon X/Pokémon Y, Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy, Daigasso! Band Brothers P (Japan), Nintendo 3DS Guide: Louvre, Bravely Default, Inazuma Eleven 3: Team Ogre Attacks!, The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Kirby: Triple Deluxe, Kasekihorider Mugengear (Japan), Mario Party Island Tour, Yoshi’s New Island, and Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney.

This year, while still on the drawing boards, is looking to knock it out of the park again with a plethora of both first, third party, and indie titles. One thing everyone has been wondering about since Atlus got absorbed by SEGA is if Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem title we last heard about in July (officially since January 2013) was still in development. Well, according to the list, it still is. You can view the complete list below:

Note: 2014 is in fiscal year terms, which means a game like Monolith Soft’s X could release as late as March 31, 2015.
