I was hoping for a late February release and a late March release for Fire Emblem: Three Houses.  Now it feels like Nintendo is going to lean hard on Three Houses to carry the 1st half of the year.

You don't think Town or AC has a chance at a June release? They have Town, Luigi's Mansion 3, Animal Crossing and Pokemon left for big heavy hitters and I kind of doubt that all those would be the last half of the year with only 2 big games releasing in the first half.

There's a possibility for another big title for the 1st half if there's a January/early February Direct but I really think Nintendo is going to go hard in trying to turn Fire Emblem into a franchise that can carry a financial quarter due to the success of Fire Emblem Heroes.  As for Nintendo's other heavy hitters, I can see Nintendo releasing Animal Crossing in July to carry the 2nd fiscal quarter like Splatoon 2 did in 2017 while using Luigi's Mansion 3, Pokemon and this year's Zelda game (I think it's a 2D Zelda title this year) to provide a holiday 1-2-3 punch like they did in 2018 with Super Mario Party, Pokemon and Smash.

One other title that I think can be released in the 1st half of the year is Daemon X Machina since it has already been shown at three events: E3, Gamescon and the September direct.

One of two things:

1) no direct
2) clearing room for the direct of things they dont feel like need spend time on.

I'd say wrong on both accounts.

There's bound to be a Direct because a release schedule for the coming months has to be announced, and Yoshi's Crafted World will be shown in that Direct. This announcement of YCW's release date should be understood as an appetizer.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Last Nintendo 3ds game?

I expect more cheap to develop ports that keep the handheld alive for another year.  I'm convinced that Nintendo will refuse to kill off the 3DS until the Switch can be sold at ~200 dollars.

I expect one more game, the swan song. Link's Awakening remake.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Yoshi has already been shown for hours. I would think they would have one closer to the release dedicated to the game. But i do believe there should be a direct soon.

I forgot the thread was specifically about Yoshi's Crafted World and assumed he was talking about Kirby's Epic Yarn.

:OO Nooooo... he didn't. Didn't he? 

This looks way too good to be a 3DS game xD

Same as what wombat said.
