Nintendo has released an updated schedule of its upcoming releases, providing us with the most up-to-date info on the games coming our way in 2019 and beyond.

Very little has changed since the last update we received, although Super Mario Maker 2's release date announcement has, of course, made the list. While the list doesn't give us any more juicy info, it also shows that as of today - 25th April - the likes of Animal Crossing, Pokémon and Luigi's Mansion are all seemingly safe from delays or other hiccups.

Here are those all-important release windows across Japan, the US and Europe:

Yes, Pokémon Sword and Shield are listed as 'Winter 2019' in Japan and 'Late 2019' in the west. We're not entirely sure why, but we wouldn't read too much into it - we'd bet our Pokémon Edition Nintendo 64 that it'll get a simultaneous worldwide release. Maybe.
