Nintendo's 2009 Release Schedule... Hmm

Posted by Anthony Dickens

We're a little worried at the moment, Nintendo only seems to have a couple of titles down for 2009, and they aren't even that special.

Gaming nerds at Kotaku are worried too, they posted the proposed release schedule:

  • Tomodachi Collection(Temp.) 2009
  • Famicom Wars DS2(Temp.) 2009
  • Made in Ore 2009

Our thoughts; hmm... Nintendo must have something else up their sleeves, that is a pretty weak line up by our standards, surely they can't go a whole year just releasing that poor amount of first party titles?

There is a silver lining, if 2009 is going to be terrible, 2010 should have something great - right? RIGHT?

I think Wii Sports Resort and Punch Out Wii are awesome titles, it would be nice if more were coming out, but that will still be $100 I will have to part with, and extra cash is difficult to come by right now. I really want a DSI, but since I just got a DS Lite, I might not get one at launch, but then again...
