Which Game Do You Thing Will Most Likely Slip Into 2020?

Zelda: Link's Awakening 2 3.03%
 
Animal Crossing 9 13.64%
 
Luigi's Mansion 3 6 9.09%
 
Town 21 31.82%
 
Pokemon 8 12.12%
 
None 20 30.30%
 
Total:66

Fire Emblems delay really screwed Nintendo's release schedule. It was suppose to be that big game in May imo, but got delayed. I also would not be surprised if Nintendo has a Wii U port to announce for the upcoming dead period. While this drought in the beginning of the year sucks, its all not in vein though. We are about to have an absolutely kick ass 2nd half of the year that is packed full of great games. For predictions

June - Mario maker 2
July - Fire Emblem
August - Daemon x Machina + Astrial Chain
September - Marvel alliance 3 +Luigi's Mansion
October - Animal crossing + Town
November - Pokemon
December- Legend of Zelda

I would say that Town in the most likely to get delayed, simply that I don't think game freak is the most efficient developer and we know so little about the game. it did look pretty far along when we saw it last though.

There are rumours of a new labo game coming out in soon so that will probably it. Other than that, third party content is plentiful enough to fill in any gaps at least.

Guys, the topic is about the lack of gaps in the back half of the year.

Everything I've heard about Town suggests that it's not going to be a big title release and will likely be digital only, so I'm not sure why it's included with the likes of Pokemon and Animal Crossing.

From the topic post:

Nintendo's got at least seven major games to release in six months.  Eight depending of how big Town will be.

They said there 11 more unnanounced games coming in 2019 before the direct. How much of those 11 were in the direct?

That's just a rumor.  Besides, we got 3 new games and two eShop titles (Tetris 99 counts despite being free I would wager).  Other than the Wii U ports, that pretty much exhausts the likely titles from the rumor.

Agreed.  The delay of that game is pretty much the biggest knot in Nintendo's schedule.

...

oh my god

NO!

Daemon X Machina would look so much worse if put next to a Platinum Game :/

Oops, then I don't see any problem with Nintendo's 2019 schedule ...unless too big many games can be bad thing?

I'd like a few more shoved in personally to cover everybody's tastes and drive momentum.



Town will probably slip to 2020. It looked like a pre-alpha during the September 2018 Direct.



Around the Network

I mean PS4 has multiple third and 1st partt games releasing per month why cant switch? Its not like say Animal crossing and something like Fire Emblem are aimed at the same market is it?



An even spread would be nicer but think of how many big titles launch on PS4 in one month. It really is ok to have 2 big hitters launch alongside each other provided they're competing the same genre (Pokemon & Fire Emblem for example).

But I really don't think Pokemon is a given for 2019...



The 2nd half of the year is definitely crowded for them unless some stuff gets delayed. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if either Animal Crossing or Pokemon gets delayed, sadly.



I think it will look something like this

June - Mario maker 2

July/August - Fire Emblem, Daemon X Machina, Astral Chain*
September - Luigi's Mansion
Oct/Nov/Dec - Animal Crossing*,  Town*, Pokemon, Zelda

I put * next to the games that might get pushed back.  Town is the most likely, while Pokemon will definitely come out this year.  Gamefreak will take people off of Town to release Pokemon on time.  Pokemon is still the most important release Nintendo will have this year.  Astral Chain is the next most likely.  This game has come out of nowhere and Platinum games is also working on Bayonetta 3.  It might get pushed back.  Finally, I think there is a greater than 50% chance that Animal Crossing will come out this year, but it has a chance of getting pushed back.  They are going to make sure this game comes out complete and flawless, and they can get away with pushing it back since they already have such a strong 2nd half.  Still, I think AC will most likely come out this year anyway.



Spring is looking a bit bare while Summer/Fall is looking almost stacked to the point where I expect some delays to avoid certain games getting lost in the shuffle.

If Fire Emblem & Daemon X Machina were Spring than it would basically fix everything.

Jan-New Super Mario Deluxe
March-Yoshi's Crafted World
April-Daemon X Machina
May-Fire Emblem: Three Houses
June-Super Mario Maker 2
July-Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3
August-Astral Chain
September-Animal Crossing
Octover-Luigi's Mansion 3
November-Pokemon Gen 8
December-Zelda: Link's Awakening

That would be such a well paced year but sadly FE & DxM are Summer instead of Spring.
