Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Rumor: In late 2018 Switch will get update with a bunch of new third party AAA and 1st party games

Yeah this is more obvious than actually a rumor,especially when we still know almost nothing about the line up of the second half of the year.

Well the second half of the year is usually when most big games come out...

If this rumor is true then I hope it doesn't mean that Nintendo will just release a bunch of games in the last half of the year every year. I prefer them spread out through the year not all bunched up in three months. That happened last year and I missed a few games because of that. I mean it is not like I am too busying working in the 3/4 of the year and suddenly have a summer vacation in the last 1/4 of the year now.

Anyway, I have been suspecting that Switch sales will explode eventually but that can't happen until a big game and a steady stream of software to follow it up. Maybe Switch sales will start rapidly increasing late this year. More games. More sales and I can see that happening soon.

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

We've been hearing that this will be a solid year for third parties for a while. But it is likely to be a port heavy line up again.

I'll definitely be surprised if Nintendo can best their 2017 output somehow (not in quality, but at least comparably sized new exclusive experiences).

The first half of the year had Zelda and Arms vs Mario Tennis and Kirby. That's a lot of ground to make up already. Then the 2nd half had Splatoon 2, Fire Emblem Warriors, Odyssey, and Xenoblade 2.

What seems likely for the rest of the year (Smash, Yoshi, Pokemon, Fire Emblem) would make 2018 solid but probably not equal to 2017 imo. Retro's project could definitely change that outlook though.



Well, I certainly Nintendo does have much stronger 2nd half of the year, as it certainly has been rather slow so far on the console. Not terrible, but compared to their stellar line last year, it certainly looks bad.

And then comes E3 and everybody is disappointed. They don't have cards they are hiding, it's sad, but it's the truth. They have no reason to save a huge 2018 game for E3. The reason they announced Smash Bros already and the reason they are releasing so many Wii U ports is to keep everyone calm during this huge drought.
They could save 2018 if they just released the Virtual Console + online service + a bunch of online games like Fortnite, Overwatch and GTA Online, but honestly, what are the odds?

Nintendo Switch doesn't even have basic OS features and stuff like cloud saving, I don't know what they are doing right now, but I hope it pays off.

It is weird. Yoshi has pretty much disappeared since its reveal. Just weird hearing next to nothing about it for almost a year 

Looks like it's becoming a regular thing for Yoshi to be announced and disappear, since the same thing happened to Woolly World

Nintendo is showing discrimination against dinosaurs

What huge drought though, there's been games every month. Maybe not one's you personally have been looking for,but there has been steady stream of games consistently

I doubt he knows much of anything considering that he "works" at Ubisoft.
