Well there will be lots of games announced throughout 2019 that also release in 2019..... we wont know until last minute unfortunately!!



Isnt Doom Eternal next year?



I think Bayonetta 3 is very likely and other second party titles like Shin Megami Tensei V, Yokai Watch 4, Daemon X Machina or Professor Layton.
Oh and Town, the new game from game freak, has been announced for 2019 as well.

The big things for 2019 are clearly Animal Crossing and Pokemon. Animal Crossing is a franchise that can go 10M - on handhelds, much less on console. As Switch is a hybrid it should sell well. Pokemon is a franchise that recently got 15M. I expect it to sell similar numbers on Switch.

The wildcard for me is NSMBUD. The first two NSMB sold nearly 30M, then franchise fatigue set in. NSMBU sold 5.5M. But Switch-ports of WiiU-software usually do better than on WiiU. So more is possible. Maybe also around 10M? Maybe NSMBUD is a rreason for the lofty 20M goal for the financial year, they expect it to sell more Switches?

Yeah, but Doom isn't big on Switch. I expect 500K-750K.

Yeah, just like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is close to 12 millions on the Switch while it only sold 8 millions on the Wii U.

Or Odyssey which sold twice as many 3D world sold on the Wii U.

I still think that NSMBUD serves more as a placeholder to keep holiday’s momentum going.

I will probably be wrong, but I think we might see a Fire Emblem/Animal Crossing in April/May. A release schedule like this one could boost shipments at the end of March and can explain why they believe in their 20m forecast.

But I won’t bet on that XD



Pok from gameonly ?

The same ;)
