2019 is set to introduce some pretty major games on Nintendo Switch, with the likes of Yoshi's Crafted World, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Pokémon, Animal Crossing, and Luigi's Mansion 3 all scheduled to arrive this year. Exact release dates for these games are still unknown (apart from Yoshi), but one UK retailer has listed a couple of these products with some oddly specific launch dates.
Base.com, an online, UK retailer which specialises in games, film, and music, has pre-order options available for the upcoming Animal Crossing game on Switch, Luigi's Mansion 3, and DAEMON X MACHINA. According to these listings, DAEMON X MACHINA is expected in May, Luigi's Mansion 3 is coming in July, and Animal Crossing launches in September. You can see the pages for yourself below.
- DAEMON X MACHINA - 24th May 2019
- Luigi's Mansion 3 - 19th July 2019
- Animal Crossing - 13th September 2019
It's worth noting that no other retailers have provided specific release dates for these titles, and the most recent official update we had on these games only said "2019", with nothing more specific than that mentioned. The site also has Metroid Prime 4 listed for release this December which, after the delay, definitely isn't the case.
As such, we'd suggest you take the dates mentioned with a large pinch of salt. And then add another bucket load just to be sure. For all we know, these could well be the planned dates for these titles, but we'd urge you to wait for an official confirmation before getting too excited.
Do you think there's any truth behind these dates? Do you think we'll receive official news on the matter soon? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
