Likely 1st party titles for 2020

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Likely 1st party titles for 2020

I'm waiting for Mario and Master Chief at the Olympic Games.



Around the Network

A few studios I can think of could have something lined up based on previous release cycles.

Camelot-for almost a decade they release a Mario Golf/Tennis game roughly every 2 years (Tennis Open-May 2012, World Tour-May 2014, Ultra Smash-Nov 2015, Aces-June 2018) so a new Golf title is possible.

HAL Labs-they release a traditional Kirby title roughly every 2 years (Return to Dreamland-Oct 2011, Triple Deluxe-Jan 2014, Planet Robobot-April 2016, Star Allies-March 2018) on top of being able to release spinoffs and smaller titles in between.

NDcube-like the other studios listed, they release at least 1 game every 2 years (2013-Party U/Island Tour, 2015-MP10/Amiibo Festival, 2016-Star Rush, 2017-Top 100, 2018-Super MP) so either a new Mario Party or a Wii Party spiritual successor.

Inti Systems-Even though Fire Emblem released just a few months ago, IIRC only about 40 of their 150 team members worked on it so a new Paper Mario is very possible.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

Already announced:
TMS #FE
Animal Crossing NH
Xenoblade DE

My guesses:
New 2D Mario (not with the new super mario style)
2D Metroid (the SM remake rumored in the other thread)
New Paper Mario (mix of TTYD and Color Splash)
Brain Training
Smash fighter pass season 2
More DLC for SMM2, FE, Ring Fit Adventure and Tetris 99
GB-GBC-GBA coming to the Switch Online

From third parties:
SMT V
Bayonetta 3
Octopath Traveller sequel or spiritual sequel



Proud to be the first cool Nintendo fan ever

Number ONE Zelda fan in the Universe

DKCTF didn't move consoles

Prediction: No Zelda HD for Wii U, quietly moved to the succesor

Predictions for Nintendo NX and Mobile


We should get either a Pokemon Sword and Shield 3rd version, or the next remake (hopefully Gen 4 Remake instead of Let's Go Gen 2).



Super Mario Odyssey 2, i firmly believe that will happen

Add a smaller title and a couple yet to be announced 3rd party ports.

This would be amazing. I feel like getting a new 2D Mario is more likely than getting a second 3D Mario. If BotW2 doesn't come out next year they better have something big timed for the release of the next gen of consoles.

I'd like to see this for my dream 2020:

AC

Bayonetta 3

BotW 2

new 2D Mario (a refresh, do away with New SMB series)

Metroid Prime Trilogy HD

Wind Waker HD (maybe a WW, SS HD double pack?)

now that 3DS is dead - a couple new games from a handheld franchise like Advance Wars, Golden Sun, Warioware, brain training, or something like that

another 3rd party game with Nintendo IP would be awesome

a Switch Sports party budget title in the vein of Wii Sports

a Mario sports game, like Strikers

another fitness title to follow up Ring Fit Adventure

1 or 2 new titles from long standing franchises franchises we're waiting around for like Pikmin, Star Fox, Fzero, paper mario, etc

one new Nintendo IP

The fact that this long post doesn't mention Pikmin 4 despite of the game being one of the very few EPD titles confirmed to be in development, breaks my heart. 

Pikmin 4 is not confirmed to be in development. You have to stop clinging to false hopes.

Miyamoto confirmed it was in development as recent as 2017.



i don't know what to expect other than whats announced. It would be nice if there were one game outside of zelda to really get me excited. I'm more of a AAA open world gamer. Xenoblade might be tight but i want something new. metroid won't be out next year. Right now my highest hope lies within pit being a featured playable character in gods and monsters from ubisoft. I haven't played a really good 3rd person shooter in a long time. It'd be nice if we could get a 3rd person star fox game. Like star fox adventure meets army of two meets ghost recon wildlands. the only 1st party game i got in 2019 was luigi's mansion. Not a huge deal since i was playing smash for most of the beginning of 2019, but seriously it'd be nice to get 2 AAA tent pole titles a year.

The best chance you have in 2020 is the 3D Mario team churning out another open sandbox game; other than that, there's the small potential for a 2nd party collaboration or a 3rd party using a Nintendo IP.  Speaking of Star Fox, you could always hope that the Starlink team at Ubisoft Toronto is making a Star Fox game since, despite low overall sales for Starlink, it was a productive creative collaboration between the two companies.
