To be fair Pokemon from start is stated like 2018. or later release, while for instance Metroid Prime 4 is TBA. We also had few indications that Pokemon could really come this year,  localization is already started few months ago , new trademark...in any case I definitely expecting Pokemon or Animal Crossing this year alongside Smash Bros.

I know they've said 2018 or later, but I am pretty certain it's "later".  Going from 3DS to Switch is a big leap in graphics and such.  I think they are going to need more time to get it right.

If Pokemon is hitting this year then I have to say that I think we're getting something more in line with what the franchise has always been. It's not going to be some big open world with Pokken level graphics. There's no way GF could make that leap and finish it that quickly. It will be more like an HD upgrade of SuMo, otherwise it's gotta be a 2019 release imo.

Well if there is no change for 2018. they wouldn't mention 2018. and they would stated only TBA like they did with Metroid Prime 4. 

To be fair we don't know for how much long Pokemon for Switch is in development, game was announced last June but that doesn't mean that development started than.

Would love to see a third party lineup like this for holidays:

GTA V
The Witcher 3
Spyro Reignited Trilogy
Kingdom Hearts III (I know I'm really dreaming here, especially since it's probably not even coming out on X1/PS4 this year lol)

All those games have some or good chances ending up on Switch except Witcher 3.

Makes sense. Many publishers were still on the fence before launch.
After 1st year results there's no point to hold on anymore, and considering the times needed to ship new games, we won't likely see those before fall 2018 or early 2019.

Totally agree, development of new games even porting requres time, and most 3rd party seriously started looking at Switch for its games only few months ago (when was obvious that Switch is success and that already has solid install base), so I also think we will start seeing bigger and stronger 3rd party suport from fall 2018. and especially in 2019.

Not sure if this is a rumour or a fairly conservative prediction (with a slight dash of wishful thinking thrown in for good measure...half the third party titles will see delays due to difficulties in the porting process)....

Well this guy is from big third party company, so he definitely knows what Switch will have than you and me.

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.

What you talking about? Almost everything you wrote is not true.

Last E3 was great for Nintendo and this one will proably be good at least. Offocuse that Nintendo has plenty of cards they are hiding, from announcing Switch it's very clear they dont showing everything they had, especially because they are mostly announcing games only few months before launch, you cant do that if you dont have cards. From February there is no any drouth, from February Nintendo have evre month some release, reason why they announced Smash Bros is because it's most likely September game alongside paid online launch, reason why realeasing Wii U ports is to have stronger lineup and to offer great games to all people that didnt had Wii U. 2018. dont need save, Switch keep selling great and from February every month there is some release, until now its not great but it's not terrible also.

No, Switch dont have some basic OS features, but its obvioulsy its paying off big time, Switch keep selling great and Nintendo continue making great profit.

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

Why you would think that? He know about Labor around week before it was announced.



If the people would say that GOW will come to the Switch, people would believe it.

Offcourse it wouldn't, actually what was said in rumor is expected, Gamestop CEO basically said similar thing.



Yeah, no. Third party AAA games are out of the question for sure.

But you do realise that games like Dragon Quest 11, Skyrim, Doom, Wolfenstein 2, LA Noire, Fifa, NBA 2K, Fifa, Dark Souls...are third party AAA games!?



Probably we will see early demo of metroid prime 4 and SSMB at E3 ? 



I’m pretty sure they announced Smash in the last direct so they can use it as their Spotlight title for this year’s E3. That dosen’t mean they can’t announce something huge during their usual direct and use the Treehouse to focus on said games. Games like Fire Emblem or Animal Crossing can be unveiled during their online presentation and have gameplay showings on the floor. They’re big titles, but they don’t need to be the main focus to be successful.

As for Pokemon, I’m pretty sure we will have an announcement and a small glimpse, but the main push will be made by the Pokemon Company, not Nintendo themselves.

I expect some 3rd parties to be unveiled by Nintendo, but mainly the ones we are waiting for, like GTA or Fortnite, but the rest will be handled by their respective publishers at their own events.

Oh forgot about the ports.



I'll sit down and wait patiently for those announcements...
