Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Which New 2018 Nintendo Switch Exclusives are you buying?

Some of these already have release dates some don't but might come 2018? I did not add ports though since there old but ok ^_- I was refering to new games though


- Kirby Star Allies

- Nintendo Labo starter and Robot

- Mario Tennis

- Yoshi Switch

- Project Octopath Traveler

- Fire Emblem (mainline)

- Travis Strikes Again :No More Heroes

- Metroid Prime 4

- Bayonetta 3

- Shin Megami Tensei V

- Ridge Racer 8

- Runner 3

- Animal Crossing 

That's 14 of them 

Honorable Mentions that seem extremely unlikely but might appear in 2018 with a Nintendo Direct or an E3?


-Pokemon Switch

-Smash 5 

-Mario Kart 9

Just kidding I'm not that rich. Prime 4 is still being released this year though, and whoever it was that said I'm wrong will eat my foot. I'd bet anything that it won't be delayed to 2019


Bayonetta 3
Metroid Prime 4
Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes


Project Octopath Traveler
Pokémon Switch
Fire Emblem
Runner 3

Most of the above, assuming they all come in 2018 (some of which I don't see coming until 2019 at the earliest). The only two I am undecided on include LABO Robot Kit and Fire Emblem.

Smash 5

Shin Megami Tensei V
Fire Emblem

Watch me stream games and hunt trophies on my Twitch channel!

Buy a Switch or a kitten will die.

Runner? That's exclusive? I don't know anything about the series but I assumed it wasn't an exclusive franchise.

Anyways, Definite Purchase:

Fire Emblem Switch
Octopath Traveler

If it comes out:

Metroid Prime 4
Bayonetta 3
Pokemon Switch
Smash 5

Mario Kart 5(definitely not happening this year...)
Shin Megami Tensei V(we basically know this isn't happening this year ...)

Might buy:


Honestly a lineup of Octopath Traveler, Fire Emblem, and your choice of two games out of : Bayonetta 3, Smash 5, Pokemon Switch, and Metroid Prime 4 .... that would be EVEN BETTER than Switch's 2017 lineup! In fact, maybe even far better. Seriously, Octopath and Fire Emblem with two of those four games would be a great yearly lineup.

I'm really surprised you didn't put Animal Crossing though ... that's more likely than most of the games on your list.
