Every three months, Nintendo provides an updated list of its upcoming major releases to keep investors in the know - and as happy as possible. We've got our hands on that very list and shared it for you below, although it's not quite as exciting as it has been in the past.

The list doesn't appear to show any significant changes from last time, but it does at least confirm that the games mentioned are still on track for their expected release dates. As it stands, then, Animal Crossing: New Horizons is indeed still coming next March - without any further delays - and all those heavy hitters at the bottom of the list are still on the way, too. At least Metroid fans had something to cheer about yesterday with Retro's new studio hire.

Without further ado, then, here's the full list. It's all written in a month/day/year format, which is nice and confusing for us Europeans:

Japan (correct as of October 2019)

The United States (correct as of October 2019)

  • Ring Fit Adventure - (10/18/2019)
  • Luigi's Mansion 3 - 10/31/2019
  • Pokémon Sword and Shield - 11/15/2019
  • Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore - 1/17/2020
  • Animal Crossing: New Horizons - 3/20/2020
  • Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition - 2020
  • Bayonetta 3 - TBA
  • Metroid Prime 4 - TBA
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Sequel - TBA

Europe (correct as of October 2019)

  • Ring Fit Adventure - (10/18/2019)
  • Luigi's Mansion 3 - 10/31/2019
  • Pokémon Sword and Shield - 11/15/2019
  • Dr. Kawashima's Brain Training for Nintendo Switch - 1/3/2020
  • Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE Encore - 1/17/2020
  • Animal Crossing: New Horizons - 3/20/2020
  • Xenoblade Chronicles Definitive Edition - 2020
  • Bayonetta 3 - TBA
  • Metroid Prime 4 - TBA
  • The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Sequel - TBA

It'll be interesting to see what Nintendo has in store for us after Animal Crossing, with 2020 looking a little bare at the moment. Hopefully we'll get Bayonetta 3 at some point next year? Fingers crossed.
