Animal Crossing on Switch will make the systems fly in Japan. It is pretty much a given it is coming next year with the release of the phone game.

The team that did Splatoon 2 is the same team that did New Leaf though. Can they really pump AC out just a year and a half after Splatoon 2, while still making new content for Splatoon 2?

I doubt the work on Splatoon 2 did take up all their ressources since the game is so close to the original. Even updates shouldn't take all the memebers of their team to be done and added into the game. 

I think they're might have been a small part of the team that was already working on AC for Switch since July at least, which coincides with the release of Splatoon 2.

They can always take the engine of ... Amiibo Festival with little tweaks if they wanna spare some time on the graphic department ;)

I never realized until now that Amiibo Festival had good 3D assets. I thought it was just a shovelware title with quickly made 3D assets. AC in 2018 would be crazy. 



3D land? That would be odd.

Not to burst any bubbles, but it doesn't compare to Zelda + Mario OD + Splatoon 2 + Mario Kart + Xeno 2.

I hope that new Fire Emblem is actually good though. Fates was so cliché and grindy that it put me off the series.
Bring back my boy Ike! (*I wish* Never gonna happen).

Less waifu and more storyu plox.

 

What i would like to see is a Xeno X port with extra content and save carry over.

No, it's not, it's a young development team with people from different studios within Nintendo EPD, but the core members were from the AC team.

No, Nintendo EPD is more than big enough that can work on couple of games in same time, saying that Splatoon 2 was mostly done buy new team that is part of Nintendo EPD, also Splatoon 2 used most of assets of Splatoon 1 so Splatoon didnt took too many resources, also next year will be 5 years from relasing New Leaf. In other words, new Animal Crossing game can easily be launched next year.

I played Conquest, it wasn't grindy at all (you can't even grind much in that game as battles are all limited).

They better not make more Wii U ports. If there are more Wii U ports in 2018 I'm done with Nintendo for good.

Smash Port is probably coming, prepare yourself and try not to overreact. As long as you get games you want to play does it really matter? The existence of a port doesn't mean everything else doesn't exist.
