You are probably right, i don't dare to guess after being so sure that AC would be coming this September

It'd better not release later than 2019. This is already the longest wait between Animal Crossing games, and if it doesn't release by March 2019, it'll also be the longest wait between a console's launch and its Animal Crossing game being released, excluding N64 for obvious reasons.
The AC/Splatoon team hardly needs much more development time at this point. They already have tons of HD assets from amiibo Festival, Pocket Camp, and Mario Kart 8.
Also, your proposed lineup without Animal Crossing would be even weaker than what Nintendo has this year. At least in 2018 we're getting 2 games with 10M+ potential. It would be ridiculous to only have one such game next year, especially since it would mean relying on Pokemon two years in a row. That's not to say Nintendo wouldn't do something like that, but still. Ridiculous.

I could see it in 2019 or 2020. No other year really. So this prediction is a bit tame. I wouldn't be surprised if they tried to make a new Mario game like a New Super Mario Brothers but rebranded for 2019.
Nah if there is no 2D Mario coming out in 2019, Nintendo would only release one big selling game that year….. I'd still believe we will see it in around summer 2019

I hope you're wrong. It's been too long.

Who knows, maybe they’ll surprise us and announce it in the possible September Direct and release it in march 2019.
I know that won’t happen, but like I said, who knows 😁

I'm not going to write a 2019 release off just yet. Reggie said there would be more to show this year, some of which would actually be releasing this year, which will give us an idea as to what their 2019 will look like. If it seems too light, I'd say 2019 is a good bet. I say that as someone who thinks Metroid Prime 4 will be released 2020, and was shown way too early for easy bonus point with their fans during E3, when they should have saved it for this year, right after the Ridley for Smash trailer. I also say this as someone that believed a rumor that Animal Crossing for Wii U was well under way and was pushed to Switch, with some redesign necessary due to things that were planned for the gamepad needing to be reworked. If 2019 is looking light as we head into it, I'd expect a surprise reveal at E3 with a late summer or early fall release, or maybe even a late spring or early summer one if they reveal it in an early 2019 direct.
