Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Nintendo intends to maintain a steady stream of releases for Switch

If Sakurai feels like making one, sure.

Admittedly, this has been a concern.
I mean, they pumped out Zelda, Splatoon, and and three Mario games (Kart, spinoff, and a new 3D platformer with the 64/Sunshine formula) all in one year. And while it has led to what is one of the greatest, if not THE greatest, 1st year lineup for any new video game system, Nintendo has given themselves a tough act to follow for 2018.
It is certainly possible, but it won't be easy.

Hopefully they don't "intend" to do this as much as they have intended to stock the Switch, because that hasn't turned out too well.

That joke is about a month too late. There seems to have been very little in the way of stock issues since the last 10 days of September. Except maybe Japan where demand is just kinda ludicrous. 

Anyway, Nintendo has several first, second, and third party exclusives already announced for 2018.  Looking at how they handled this year, I expect they are playing with their cards close to the vest.

my bets for unannounced games that will release 2018

FP

Animal Crossing Switch

Smash Bros 4 Deluxe

Pikmin 4

TP

Tokyo Mirage Sessions Remaster

Bayonetta 1 + 2

The Wonderful 101 Remaster

Grand Theft Auto V

Fallout 4

Metal Gear Solid V 

Dragon Ball FighterZ

I would just add Retros game, another new IP, Next Level Games game and possible some other GC/Wii/Wii U remasters.



Offcourse they intend and offcourse they will do that.

I think Retros game (Probably a new ip) will launch in 2019-2020, the next game of Next Level Games probably will be Luigi Mansion's 3 and will launch in 2019, since the second sold 5.38m and I really want to see some remasters like Punch-Out Wii HD, Smash Melee HD and Metroid Prime Trilogy HD.

I used to get excited at the sight of these topics. Now I read them and get disgusted, frustrated, and angry. What happened?

Smash 4? Why not a new Smash? Why do people want remakes? Where is the community going?

It's the fastest route to getting Smash Bros. on the Switch and Smash 4 is already *ahem* smashing with content and incredible fanfare that would make any gamer wet him/herself. 
The community generally feels that Smash Wii U in particular had its legs cut short, and find it quite a shame since it's nearly unanimously agreed that out of the two versions, the Wii U one is the superior, definitive verison (though Smash 3DS has its' pros as well). 

Meanwhile, a brand new Smash Bros. game from scratch would be at least 3-4 years of development and resources if they started today, that puts Smash 5 at around 2020/2021, and I don't think the community doesn't want to wait that long for a new Smash Bros. on the Switch. At that point, Switch 2 would be looming so, Nintendo might even push it even further back to meet the launch of that system.
Additionally, developing and directing Smash 4 took a huge toll on Sakurai, the man was in a sling, working with one arm trying to develop the game. So it's understandable if he's quite burned out and not particularly eager to get back on the helm for a new Smash Bros. just yet. 

Thus, porting the latest version that everyone still clearly cares about makes the most logical and efficient sense. It clearly worked with Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.  So 



I think we will see Direct in mid/late November and then we will now more about lineup for 2018.

For now we have:

- Kirby Star Allies
- Project Octopath Traveler
- Yoshi
- Fire Emblem
- Travis Strikes Again: No More Heroes
- Shin Megami Tensei V
