Hahaha Glad I convinced someone. 



These are all the semi-realistic games we could possibly get next year: 

 

New Kirby Game 

Pikmin 4

New Retro Game

Mario Sports Game 

New StarFox Game

New Paper Mario Game

New 2D Metroid

New Mario & Luigi

New WarioWare 

New Wario Land

A Returning Franchise (Kid Icarus, F-Zero, Advance Wars, Golden Sun, Sin & Punishment etc)

New Donkey Kong

Monolith's New Game (whether Xenoblade or new IP) 

Pokemon Generation 4 Remake (non-Let's Go)

Super Mario Odyssey 2

 

And that's not including possible third party exclusives like Shin Megami Tensei V, Rune Factory 5, Bravely Default 3 (No, the team that made Octopath is not the same), and Bayonetta 3. 

Now, I'm not saying that all of those games will come next year. They won't. But I do think that it's a little too soon to think that Nintendo is running out of games. Quite frankly, if something gets a delay, it's probably because Nintendo wants to stretch out the Switch's momentum as long as possible. I doubt they don't have the games to support next year, and if they don't ... then ... wow. That's not good! All I can say is that if Nintendo needs to delay games to make up for a lack of resources, they should have planned this out a lot better, especially considering they have a combined library and many studios that they work with.   

So yeah, I don't think it's happening. But I admit I'm scared now. Still, Hype Train! Hype Train! Astral chain! Astral Chain!

I don't think so. Think back to the Wii and GameCube days where the only big games were coming out in the last quarter of the year. It sucked.
2005 comes to mind when RE4 came out in January and then...nothing until September and October when we got Battalion Wars and Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance respectively.

Personally, I'm still playing Smash and playing catch up with SMO. And I got TSA:NMH to go through still. I don't mind that Nintendo's second half of the year is stacked as fuck.

Without counting 2nd/3rd  party exclusive and multipats. I can certainly see a good chunk of your list be realized during year 4 and 5 of the Switch lifecycle.

Can't tell you how great this is !

Yes, Yes, YES! I agree with you! 

It's easy to forget how many big titles Nintendo could release for the Switch ... so I guess I understand the concern, but there's still so much yet to come out! 

And let's not forget: Monolith is probably working on two projects simultaneously. I could honestly see a game of theirs releasing in 2020 and another one in 2021. 

Also, small note, I'm pretty sure that Rune Factory 5 was confirmed in a Japanese interview to have a goal of a 2020 release. Probably a small amount of Rune Factory fans on this site but ... yeah ... that's one third party exclusive possibly for 2020. 



They do. There's very little in 1st-party content until June. Sorry, ports don't count as adequate enough content. Plus, the delay habit is coming back. In 2017 and 2018, Nintendo had few to no delay announcements. Now we have Metroid Prime 4 restarted (no release date ever, but this pushed it back 1-3 years at least), Mario Kart Tour delayed from Q1 of 2019 to the summer, and Fire Emblem delayed into July 26th.

Super Mario Maker 2 is the first Nintendo release of 2019 that I plan on getting.



Lifetime Sales Predictions 

PS4: 122 mil (was 100 million) Xbox One: 55 mil (was 50 mil) Switch: 79 million

3DS: 77 mil (was 73 million)

You forgot to list New Nintendo IP



Nintendo in 2018. released two its biggest games of year with only 3 weeks gap, Nintendo tend to release multiple games that they are publishing in some month, we saw that in 2018. and we already saw this year also in January (NSMBU DX, Travis and Fitness Boxing).

Funny thing is thats not hole Switch 2019. lineup, there will be more 2019. announcements, but of course there is always possibilite that some game can slip to 2020.
