Is it because of that lack of leaks it has? I havent seen or heard any leaks of any game yet. They did confirm it will be 2019 at their financial conference. Soo if it is delayed something happened between April to June. 

In GameXplain's latest E3 prediction video, there was an all round consensus it would release early next year.

They did agree the E3 direct would show off Animal Crossing at least.

I saw that.  The thing is, it doesn't make much sense to me.  Animal Crossing is a 10 million seller waiting to happen.  It doesn't sound like they think development is the problem, it sounds like they think Nintendo is just going to schedule it for after the holidays for to fill in a gap.  To me it would make more sense to hold back the Link's Awakening remake or something if that was their plan.

It just feels like the internet talking to itself.  I'm still expecting Animal Crossing to take up a good chunk of the Direct and announce an October release.

Also, I just think they would have learned from last year not to release news of delays during E3.

Doesn't really matter what gamexplain opinion is on the matter to be honest. As said, XC2 did release in a same fashion where almost everyone thought it was getting delayed beyond 2017. There's no problem for them to do it with Animal Crossing.

Spoiler!
That and I don't see Banjo be in Smash.

I think it all depends on development and scheduling.

There are a lot of first party titles on Nintendo's end that are releasing this second half of the year.

If AC does get delayed to early 2020, its not necessarily a delay in a technicality sense.

Nintendo's fiscal years usually start in March so if AC release before March, its still considered a FY 2019 release.

Not saying AC will get delayed, but there is a technicality to releasing in early 2020.

Animal Crossing is the 2nd biggest title they've got coming out later this year though.  If it were just a matter of scheduling, you'd think that it would be Link's Awakening or even Luigi's Mansion that got pushed back.  Why would Nintendo skip a holiday cycle for an evergreen title that'll easily sell 10 million?

But Link's Awakening is a remake. Unless it's FFVII remake, I find it hard that a remake would get delayed that far back.

You may have a case for Luigi's Mansion 3, but its planned to be demoed at E3..and I don't think games that are being demoed at E3 are delayed that often.

AC can still sell 10 million w/o a holiday release. It's not a first week sales juggernaut. It's a slow burner compared to Mario, Pokemon, and Smash Bros.

Some seems scared that AC will be pushed to 2019 because the game is absent of all the marketing Nintendo is pushing pre E3, but AC is also the type of game that don’t fit well on a show floor like E3.
My guess is that we get a trailer and a release date during the Direct and a lengthy cover on the Treehouse during the first day.
I also don’t think we’ll get a full blown coverage like Smash last year on any game. I think they’ll use the same format as 2017.

I want my ticket btw !

That's exactly what I mean.  Link's Awakening is a remake.  It would make much better sense to me that if you have a crowded schedule, you would push back a smaller game that needs room to breath to anchor your Winter schedule instead of having it swallowed by Pokemon.  Animal Crossing wouldn't have that problem.

And yes, of course Animal Crossing would still sell 10 million.  I called it an evergreen title myself.  However, evergreen titles get huge boosts during the Holiday.  Nintendo would just be bypassing a ton of money as people buy a Switch and a handful of games by holding it back.

Disagree from a strategic point of view AC makes more sense to delay as Pokemon a guaranteed 15m seller can easily carry the holidays with a smaller project rather than have to large titles cannibalize sales from each other, evergreen titles like AC also don't really rely on holiday boosts look at BOTW these are games people are already planning to get whether on release or down the line hence why they have legs in their sales AC being delayed to the Spring release window is not unusual.
