Forums - Nintendo Discussion - 2020: The peek of the Switch?

If a proper 2d Mario is made, the year it comes out will be the peak year, as long as it is not released in the last 2 years or so of the console's life cycle. 2021

Around the Network

It's possible. I mean we've got Animal Crossing: New Horizons out in March. This is the first time since the Switch's launch that such a huge Nintendo game comes out in the 1st quarter. If Breath of the Wild 2 comes out in 2020, or a yet-to-be-announced Super Mario Odyssey 2, that would help too.

Third party will probably peak in 2020 before the holiday 2020 releases of Project Scarlett and PlayStation 5. Plus long-rumoured Switch hardware revisions will almost certainly start in 2020 at the latest.

And fingers crossed they fix some of their online service and give us a lot of classic games by next year.
