@gyroZeppeli although Torna was a standalone release it still was dlc, compare it to uncharted the lost legacy. And pokemon just sells it doesn't matter when it releases. And there are still games releasing on switch in february. An animal crossing and Fire emblem isn't ready yet to be released. And Yoshi will just get drowned Nintendo should care what's releasing. You cannot lose eyes of the competition it's just basic bussiness sense.

@IceClimbers Joker in Smash was just more Smash, Nintendo already focused an insane amount of Smash since E3 so while a big announcement it was like when they chose to have a Smash Direct in August rather than a normal Direct. The official Crash Team Racing site and the Warner Bros. store seem like official enough confirmation that Crash Team Racing and Mortal Kombat 11 respectively are being delayed on Switch? Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 could be big, don't know.

It definitely wasn't enough for a Direct to come as late as it's coming.

@Whitewatermoose How credible is this developer? For all we know, they could just be spreading false rumors.

Please notify me if you want to add me on Switch before sending a request. It makes my life easier.

If true I wonder what games are behind schedule.

@Whitewatermoose Could you provide examples of some of your previous correct information?

Mario Galaxy is ten years old, and now I feel old.

Internet people are funny.

3 months ago: "Nintendo has NOTHING interesting going on, this sucks, I hate sunshine, rawr."
Today: "Nintendo has SO MUCH momentum recently, would be a shame to see it evaporate."

For the observant and rational, there is much to be discerned from this phenomenon.

Nice to see you back on the forums Mr Moose

I never drive faster than I can see. Besides, it's all in the reflexes.

I'm more concerned about when the Pokemon Direct that announces 8th gen is than the next full Direct. Hopefully not more than a few weeks.

@Bolt_Strike I would think they'd announce it before the end of February based on X/Y and Sun/Moon. Then again, in both of those cases they didn't really get the ball rolling on the pre-release info cycle until May anyways so I suppose they could just wait until then this time around.

You WILL start seeing mobile ports reworked into actual games without micro transactions! I am excited to see how these turn out as it could be a major revenue stream and also a great way to fill in software gaps. There are also some older ports that need to be announced. I am looking forward to that as well.

Okay this bit kind of concerns me. When you say mobile games being reworked into actual games without micro transactions are you talking about Pokemon Quest type games or Animal Crossing (the latter hopefully not being the case)?

I FULLY EXPECT, Nintendo is sitting quietly because they will be having a SPECIAL SHOW prior to E3, probably in April. Which should have a half dozen big games announced at that time.

I also expect NINTENDO to present at E3 this year as they have some things to talk about with special guests and with Sony being a no-show, what a great way to capture everyone's attention.

I am interested as to your reasoning behind why Nintendo would do this? Even with Sony not participating this year, it still doesn't really make sense for Nintendo to suddenly do a 180 and have a proper conference and what would these special guests be outside Japanese developers from internal studios? Kind of makes little sense to me for Nintendo to do such a thing.

@Whitewatermoose Honestly think that both February and April have no "big" game. I think the next big game after Yoshi will be released in May. From there on you'll see "big" games for the rest of the year.

So basically Fire Emblem, Animal Crossing, Daemon, and Marvel from May - August alongside a Wii U port or two, then Luigi's Mansion 3 in October and Pokemon in November. That leaves September and December. My guess is either Metroid Prime Trilogy HD or Bayonetta 3 for September, with a 2D Zelda for December.

@IceClimbers I could see Nintendo doing more of the games as a service type idea with a couple of games. Rush them out the door and then drip feed the remaining content over a few months. Kirby and Mario Tennis still sold well so it obviously didn't do too much harm and if Nintendo are truly struggling with delays, it may make more sense from a business perspective.

Interesting you say 2D Zelda for December, I was thinking of another port such as Wind Waker HD or that "teased" Skyward Sword remaster.

@FragRed Quite possible. Definitely confident that we're getting something Zelda this year. Just not 100% sure what.

@IceClimbers No, think about it. They have a Marvel game under their belt but they don't have anything from DC. It's got to be Superman 64

Honestly think were not going to see a 2D Zelda this year or for quite some time. 2D Zelda has long been the handheld partner to consoles 3D Zelda and I don't think Nintendo really knows what to do with it especially after the massive success of Breath of the Wild. I think a Wind Waker HD port is the most likely option at this point.

Another game I am predicting is an HD remaster of Billy Hatcher. I know it was Sega developed but its quite an iconic game and along with hopefully Mario Sunshine HD and Wind Waker HD it would help satisfy some of the fan demand for GameCube games for online and maybe be the start of a series of GameCube remasters.

Zelda HD trilogy: Faces of Evil, Wand of Gamelon, Zelda's Adventure

On a more serious note, if there's a Zelda game happening in 2019 I think either Skyward Sword HD for Switch, new 2D Zelda for smartphones or a remake for 3DS that uses the ALBW engine.
