More Fall Switch games? Apparently so! Nintendo has reiterated that there are more unannounced titles to come this fall (or likely before the fiscal year ends). As for the big first-party titles, we currently know of Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! & Let’s Go, Eevee! set to launch on November 16th and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. that is scheduled to release at the end of the year on December 7th. Speaking with shareholders, this is what Nintendo had to say about its mystery upcoming games.
“We have been putting forth our best effort to be ready to release information to consumers at the appropriate time. We are not yet at the point where we can announce our entire product lineup, including the products that will be released during the holiday season. We are aiming to sell 20 million units during this fiscal year, the second year since the launch of Nintendo Switch, and have released first-party titles like Nintendo Labo in April, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze in May and Mario Tennis Aces on June 22. And then for the holiday season, we are planning to release Super Mario Party on October 5, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!/Let’s Go, Eevee! on November 16, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on December 7. We plan to use this robust lineup, including popular titles that were already released prior to the last fiscal year, to maintain and increase the momentum we have with Nintendo Switch for the holiday season, which is the most significant period for sales. We will communicate more detailed information to consumers at a later date.”
I’m curious what you think. Do you think Nintendo still has a AAA first-party title under the wraps and it’s holding off on the announcement until a fall Direct? Do you think that rumored Star Fox racing title leading up to E3 was real? Be sure to leave all your thoughts in the comments section below, or head over to our Facebook page and join the discussion.
