That would kinda be overkill lmao. Like even if nothing else releases on the Switch that would be unnecessary. Feel like we might see another exclusive from Ubisoft and other companies. They will be coming a lot more starting next year since they were afraid to participate until it came out breaking records. 



-They will need another 2017 level year to deal with whats to come from the competition with the new consoles.

-They a digital store for all key games from NES-The Wii. Because the console is handheld, this could include handheld titles.
-Bayonetta 3 needs to drop

ignoreing the remakes,....

The "big" impactfull titles from that list would be "Animal Crossing" + "Mario Story" + "bayonetta 3".

Compaired to "Ghost of Tsushima" + "Final Fantasy 7 Remake" + "Last of Us part 2".
I think Sony has "bigger" heavy hitters in 2020.

Nintendo should have more, than what your list shows imo.

That's not how ignoring remakes work



Going month by month is too specific for me, but here's what I think could happen during the year overall:

- F-zero game (FINALLY) with a robust online mode. Would be pretty sick. The "big release" for the first half of the year.
- Pikmin 4 w/online support
- NSMB Collection (collections seem to be the thing now, particularly on Switch. Would be cool to see a package featuring NSMB1, 2, Wii U, Luigi U, & maybe some all-new exclusive stages)
- New Paper Mario
- Earthbound collection (with Mother 3 Western release O_o) possible remake of at least one of them in the future, following the model of the Mana Collection
- New Donkey Kong Country by Retro to throw their fans a bone while we wait for Prime 4
- Mario Kart 9 (would likely be a pretty big overhaul/revamp to keep it feeling fresh like Super Mario Party - this could also be the "big" holiday release along with BotW 2, as Prime 4 is likely 2021)
- Geist sequel? I feel like Nintendo would want to round out the lineup a bit more with an exclusive FPS
- New WarioWare
- Maybe new Wario LAND? O_o
- New Rhythm Heaven (a chance this and/or WarioWare could be mobile releases)
- Another Ring Fit or 1-2 Switch type game that utilizes the HD rumble and motion controls

- GB/GBC/GBA game releases on the Switch online service

I feel like this is like 70% pipe dreams vs actual, feasible potential future games for next year but hey, a man can dream. And most of these I feel aren't outside the realm of possibility based on trends/conditions.

I want all of this. I know we won't get any of it.

I think a Game & Watch Museum would be the best thing I ever needed in my life.

The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?

I predict that we may have 1-2 unique titles from any of the big AAA Japanese developers..I cannot say more because this year has not been encouraging to me. Despite the Switch's success, the big Japanese developers (with the exception of Square Enix) have not been as supportive for the Switch as I had hoped. Where are some unique or new games? People say its only year 2 of the Switch; but in 2020, there are no more excuses.

Capcom has done nothing but ports (with the exception of Mega Man 11) and have showed no signs of developing a new unique AA-AAA title for the Switch (i.e., Monster Hunter, Street Fighter, Resident Evil, Ace Attorney, etc.). Sega (with the exception of Sonic Mania, Sonic Forces, Team Sonic Racing, and Valkyria Chronicles 4) is a little better. But what about a Yakuza game or a House of the Dead game? Was that new Sakura Wars project in development before the Switch was a thing? What about Persona beyond Scramble? Hell, where is SMT V? Do the AAA Japanese developers need more tests or something? Its just ridiculous. I am not saying everything has to come to Switch, but I SHOULD expect more support in 2020..It's just hard to justify that kind of prediction since I have seen little evidence/hints of better support for the Switch from the likes of Capcom, Sega, and even Namco Bandai.
