Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Thoughts on the Switch's current 2018 Q1-Q2 lineup?

Felt like making a thread about this after seeing the Direct Mini moments ago. We have a basic outline of what the next 6 months (Q1-Q2) are for Switch and wondered what people felt about it. I think I made a similar thread back during the first Switch event in January 2017. Let me know if I forgot anything.

January: Lost Sphear, Darkest Dungeon, Furi, Super Meat Boy, The Escapists 2, Celeste

February: Bayonetta 1 + 2, Payday 2, Dragon Quest Builders, The Longest 5 Minutes, Portal Knights, Monster Energy Supercross, Fe

March: Kirby Star Allies, Attack on Titan 2, Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition? (Spring release), Atelier Lydie and the Suelle, MUSYNX

April: Runner 3, Mario Tennis Aces? (Spring release), Fallen Legion: Rise to Glory, Adventure Time: Pirates of the Enchiridion, Shantae Half-Genie Hero Ultimate Edition, Blade Strangers, Penny Punching Princess

May: Dark Souls Remastered, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection

June: The World Ends With You Final Remix? (Summer release)

Keep in mind that this list is obviously incomplete still and Nintendo surely has more unnanounced and this list is just focusing on what is officially confirmed right now. Some of these games I have no idea even about what they are, just that some may be interested in them and they are new releases so I added everything I could find.

Decent for me. I still have to catch up with 2017, so a decent time to breath is nice. TWEWY and Ys are my favourite announcements, and Kirby will be fun as well. I have to try the DQ Builders before I decide what to think of it.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

The lineup is incomplete, so it's moot to draw conclusions from it.



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

Great for me. Just think how good the holiday season is going to be like with the games already announced. Switch is lit.

January: Lost Sphear

February: Bayonetta 1 + 2, Super Mario Odyssey DLC, Payday 2, Dragon Quest Builders

March: Kirby Star Allies, Attack on Titan 2, Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition? (Spring release) 

April: Runner 3, Mario Tennis Aces? (This one could be released anytime between March-May since it's a Spring release).

May: Dark Souls Remastered, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection

June: ?

Keep in mind that this list is obviously incomplete still and Nintendo surely has more unnanounced stuff, some games might get dates for these next 6 months, and that I also didn't list everything since i'm just focusing on the bigger games/third party games. For example we didn't even see anything on Yoshi or Wolfenstein 2 in this Direct, and the new Mario Tennis Aces game is releasing in Spring 2018 so that could be anytime between March and May in there.

I think the real question as well here is do you think Nintendo can sell 20 million like they want to this year with this lineup? (for the first 6 months at least).

You forget Hyrule Warrios Definitive Edition.

I think its decent, and we will definitely have more announcements for first 6 months, also we will most likly have Direct in March-April.

In terms of new games it's very baron but I don't think Nintendo are worried. They are yet to even catch up with supply and by the time they do they should have another big game or two announced for the end or the year.

Yeah I realized and added that just a minute ago lol.  But also yeah there are surely more announcements. Was just wondering what everyone was thinking of what's been announced so far.  I agree as well, since this was a Mini Direct I think there will be a big regular direct in the next few months.



Kirby, Bayonetta and Mario Tennis Aces is all I need right now :)

It's a meh for me. I'll check out Tennis Aces, but I've already played most of the rest of them on other platforms.



Its pretty solid, but anything looks solid after what was the Wii U.
