Super Mario Maker 2

The Mario Maker 2 Direct got me hyped for this. They are adding so many new features that it looks like the Smash Ultimate of Mario Maker. 

Luigi's Mansion 3

I really liked all the different mechanics they showed off in today's Direct. I'm hoping this is a 2019 game, but it might get delayed. Still putting it on this list anyway. 

Pokemon Sword & Shield

 This looks much better after the Poke'mon Direct. The graphics aren't top notch, but they seem a little bit improved from the last time we saw this. Anyway who cares? It's Poke'mon. 

Fire Emblem Three Houses

I've been a huge fan of Intelligent systems ever since I discovered Advance Wars Dual Strike on the DS. Honestly, this one should have been a 2018 game, but oh well. It will still make Switch's 2019 crazy good. 

Daemon X Machina

Awesome Cel Shaded artstyle? Check. Insane Music? Check. Armored Core 3 vibes? SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY!


A Martial Arts Action RPG with a radiant storyline, and freeform quests. I'm getting Jade Empire meets Horizon vibes from this one.

Doom Eternal

Bethesda may have messed up with Fallout 76, but this is a completely different group of people making the next Doom game. The fast paced combat from the first was great, so this should be fun too. 

The Outer Worlds

A Fallout game, only not. There's no buggy engine this time, and no dumbing down of the series. Just the fine people at Obsidian bringing us a flat out better Fallout game than Bethesda could ever hope for. 

Astral Chain

I still don't know much about this, but Platinum always makes good games. 

Link's Awakening

A cute little remake, with what looks like a Zelda Maker built into it somewhere. Hopefully Nintendo doesn't try charging a full $60 for this one. 

Death Stranding

A game where you deliver packages across a post-apocalyptic america, plagued with the ghosts of american soldiers, rain that causes you to age rapidly, and a whole bunch of other weird shit.

Trails of Cold Steel III

This will complete my collection of Falcom RPGs.

The one called " My wallet is dry, thanks Nintendo !"

Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

Link’s Awakening
Mario Maker 2
Luigi’s Mansion 3

If I’m not forgetting anything. I might get more, who knows, but those are Day Ones. And to me, four Day Ones for the second half of the year is a good score, 2019 is a good year!

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel III, and uh... maybe something else too, just can't think of any right now. Most of the games I'm really looking forward to seem to coming out in 2020 anyway or don't even have release dates yet.

I forgot about that one. It will complete my Steelbook collection.

Suikoden VI announcement.
Its coming.
I know it.

Looks like the rest of the year for me will be
Mario Maker 2
Hollow Knight physical(got delayed in Europe)
Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3
Wolfenstein: Youngblood
Astral Chain
The Dark Pictures: Man of Medan
Daemon X Machina
Borderlands 3
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening
Doom Eternal

And undecided:
Fire Emblem: Three Houses
Pokémon Sword
Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order
The Outer Worlds

No honestly, if I look at what has been layed out so far (not counting any change in plans) :

100% :
- Super Mario Maker 2
- Fire Emblem Three Houses
- Astral Chain
- Daemon x Machina
- Zelda Link's Awakening
- Luigi's Mansion 3
- Pokémon Sword
- Shovel Knight King of Cards
- AI : The Somnium Files

50/50's :

- Cadence of Hyrule
- Dragon Quest XI S
- Doom Eternal (is it 2019 ?)
- Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3
- Secret of Mana Collection

This is almost beyond 2017 in sheer term of quality stuff imo.

Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

My top picks are

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Doom Eternal

Gears 5

Pokemon Sword & Shield

Also keen on Call of Duty Modern Warfare but being wary given how Activision have been using microtransactions lately. Also want to get Spyro now that it has finally been announced for the Switch.

Kinda thanful some games like Watchdogs Legion are slated for next year, can't work my way through them all that quickly. 

The Sinking City
Blair Witch
Moons of Madness
Pokemon Sword and Shield
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare (my most anticipated)
Hopefully Dead Island 2

I am probably the only one who has more anticipated games so far this year than in 2020. (Which I have Battle for Bikini Bottom Remastered, Black Ops V, and Outriders to look forward to)
