This is a major reason why Nintendo needs to unify their platforms. Design games for one platform that's available in 2-3 form factors (portable, tablet, console). Here is the lineup of Nintendo-published titles this year (North American dates).

The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D-February 13
Kirby and the Rainbow Curse-February 20
Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars-March 5
Codename S.T.E.A.M.-March 13
Fossil Fighters: Frontier-March 20
Mario Party 10-March 20
Boxboy!-April 2
Pokemon Rumble World-April 8
Xenoblade Chronicles 3D-April 10
Puzzles & Dragons Z+Super Mario Edition-May 22
Splatoon-May 29
Yoshi's Woolly World
Mario Maker
Fatal Frame: Oracle of the Sodden Raven
Project Giant Robot
Project Guard
Xenoblade Chronicles X
Devil's Third
Star Fox
Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer

That's 20 games with chances of a few extra announced at E3, so averaging about 2 games per month.


Ninty's reputation would skyrocket, NX can't arrive quick enough.

I also forgot Pokemon Shuffle which released February 18.

From February 13 to May 29, Nintendo will have published 12 games or 3 per month. Like always a bit of a slowdown in the Summer but once Fall hits they always ramp up the releases again so we can easily expect another dozen or so titles from September to December.

I honestly can't see how people are so against a unified console/handheld, Nintendo-published titles+Japanese 3rd party support+kid friendly titles+indie support would easily give such devices 100+ games per year, any AAA western titles would just be icing on the cake in such a scenario.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Yoshi comes out in the first half of 2015 in Europe. Woohoo

End of June in EU and September in US - it's a fail.

Wait, Europe gets a game almost 3 months before the US?

Wooohooo, Europe FTW!


Immediately my mind presumes X is going to be the opposite, maybe even dramatically so, but let me not jinx it....

Still not worse than 2005-2006 for GameCube.

January 11, 2005 - resident evil 4
August 2005 - geist
October 2005 - fire emblem: path of radiance
November 2005 - super mario strikers
December 2006 - zelda: twilight princess


GC was dead after 2004 in my eyes



Predictions: PS4: 110m, XB1: 65m, Wii U: 15m, 3DS: 70m, PSV: 15m

Curl - 6 was right about Zelda U never being a wii u exclusive, I should have never bet against him :p  

Pretty much.



Well, this is new.

Read.

Huge amounts of failure on that list.

Even Kirby hasn't been released in PAL yet, so add a failure there in Europe.

I have predicted that Xeno will be released at the earliest, Nov 30th in the West. I wouldn't be surprised if it came out in Feb 2016. I have no idea why some people think it will be released in June/July/August lol ... No chance.

star fox and xenoblade won't be delayed and yoshi is kinda first half, at least in europe.

Well this is even worse than Sony´s release schedule. Got to give credits to MS on making deadlines


Lol yeah grats to Ms....just look how awesome the master chief collection was



Fairly common for Nintendo.

They only released that graphic last year to get people to buy it over the holidays, with assurances that many games were coming in the future, so it's worth the investment. Nintendo has a long history of spacing out and delaying their major titles. I don't think this year is necessarily any worse than most previous years.

Also, Xenoblade is not getting delayed.  The game's already done, it comes out in Japan in three weeks.  Localization for the west has been ongoing for the better part of two years.  I would be shocked if it came out any later than October.



The Screamapillar is easily identified by its constant screaming—it even screams in its sleep. The Screamapillar is the favorite food of everything, is sexually attracted to fire, and needs constant reassurance or it will die.

only zelda and mario maker failed.

The reason that people are thinking this is that the game is almost doen already, and Is coming out in Japan in the coming months. Plus, I believe they've already started on the translation.

So with all this in mind, after printing out all the copies and sending them to store shevles Its safe to predict a August - November release.
