So xbox’s Playbook. But smash and Pokemon should perform very well. But they do need more releases throughout the year.
First Party releases or releases in general? Because in general, the rest of the year has plenty of releases for the Switch to choose from.
6/22 - Mario Tennis Aces
6/29 - Wolfenstein II; Crash N-Sane Trilogy
7/13 - Octopath Traveler; Captain Toad
7/27 - Go Vacation
8/9 - Okami HD
8/28 - Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate
9/11 - NBA 2K19
9/25 - Valkyria Chronicles 4
9/28 - FIFA 19, Dragon Ball FighterZ
10/02 - Mega Man 11
10/05 - Super Mario Party
10/16 - Starlink: Battle for Atlas
11/16 - Pokemon Let's Go, Pikachu/Eevee!
12/07 - Smash Bros. Ultimate
Plus there are other games with 2018 release dates, but no specific date like Dark Souls: Remastered, The World Ends with You: Final Remix, Tales of Vesperia: Definitive Edition, and Team Sonic Racing.
In terms of First Party Nintendo titles, it is a little lacking for sure. But overall, the Switch in 2018 looks fine.
Also, don't fall asleep on Super Mario Party. That game could potentially sell big numbers. Obviously not at the levels of Smash or Pokemon, but it's an old-school, board-styled Mario Party!! Something that fans have wanted for ages and it actually looks like a lot of fun! That's a game that will attract both the young kids who want a fun Mario game to play and the adults who grew up with the classic N64/GameCube Mario Party games that have been waiting and clamoring for this kind of game for years. That, combined with Pokemon and Smash Bros. I think that combination is going to be pretty lethal in the holidays and I think it's enough for Nintendo to reach their goal.
