No.

Sounds to me what a lot of people said about Xenoblade 2 and Mario Oddyssey.  I think 2018 is very realistic.  Most of what they have announced have been released relatively quick IMO.  I feel this will be no different.

Not at all. Those games were revealed with gameplay and an intended release period. People were just betting they wouldn't make those planned release periods. There is literally no reason for anyone to believe Bayo3 would be releasing this year. Nintendo didn't say it, Platinum didn't say it, and no gameplay has been shown to support that.



Well, this is new.

I don't put much weight into this rumor...

Cannot see this game being released so soon after Bayonetta 1&2. If anything this would be a Fall-Winter 2018 game to let the bundle have some room to breath.

Also just because a mod is backing up the claim doesn't mean the rumor ends up true.

"...as early as summer 2018," hahahahahah :O

Why are you laughing at this? Didn't you see Xenoblade 2 released in 2017? That's ultimate proof that every game Nintendo announces ever will come out within 9 months.

Damn! I forgot that Xenoblade 2 created a new trend! I take back my laugh and predict a simultaneous same day release with the next Nintendo Direct because it happened that one time with Earthbound I think!

Okay, thanks for understanding common sense. I mean after the way they handled the Zelda DLC there's no way they're announcing games prior to release anymore!



Doubt it, we only got a teaser without any footage

The problem is no gameplay has been shown at all. Until I've seen gameplay I'm not convinced. We have no idea how long they've been working on Bayonetta 3 because they haven't announced a release date and had just shown a really short cinematic trailer and nothing else.

important to keep in mind that lately Nintendo has not been showing gameplay of upcoming games until prettyyyy close to their release. Almost all of their big 2017 games we saw less than a year before they launched. Odyssey at the Switch announcement video, Arms / Splatoon 2 at the January big Switch Event, etc.

It would be very in line with Nintendo's recent trends to show footage of a number of games at the start of the year that will be out in 2018 and haven't been talked about yet. I mean OBVIOUSLY it's going to happen with some big titles we've yet to see as Nintendo currently has very very little announced officially (Bayonetta bundle, Bayonetta 3, Yoshi, Fire Emblem, Kirby being basically it)

In all fairness, the Switch was a new console, so there were bound to be surprise announcements for games releasing in the launch window. Also worth mentioning is the fact that we actually saw Splatoon 2 and Mario Odyssey gameplay at Nintendo's October 2016 reveal initially, which is actually a year gap for Odyssey and 8 months for Splatoon 2 (but it makes sense for Splatoon 2 as the game released with minimal content and that was gradually finished over updates like the Holiday update in December). If we apply the same logic to Platinum who have way less resources than Nintendo, then there's no way the game could release this year, because gameplay wasn't shown last year in December like Odyssey and Splatoon 2 had. At least we knew that these games had made decent progression in terms of content, whilst with Bayonetta 3, this is unknown. I don't think you should be holding out for Bayonetta 3 releasing this year. Nintendo are most likely going to announce new games releasing this year at their event/direct besides Yoshi/Kirby/Fire Emblem.



We don't even know how far development the game is right now. Any predictions is sorta moot right now. I think it is more likely to be a late 2018 title than a Summer 2018 title though. I won't be surprised if it releases this year though.

Switch is 9th generation. Everyone else is playing on last gen systems!

who else would develop it ? besides the only other game they are working on is Granblue (the new IP has just recently started development and has a 20 people team)

Well, thanks to all that Nintendo money they're rich now. They should be able to hire a couple of contractors to do it for them.
