In an uneventful month, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is closing in on Fire Emblem Warriors.

June will see the release of Super Mario Maker 2 which has the potential to push 1-2-Switch out of the charts. The crossover Cadence of Hyrule was originally scheduled for a spring release, but has been added to the Coming Soon page of the eShop as a plain 2019 title. That doesn't rule out a surprise release during E3, but it's not especially likely.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.
