For some time now, there have been concerns about what Nintendo has planned for the Switch in the immediate future. After Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition arrives at the end of this month, there's Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics in June, followed by some DLC for Pokémon Sword and Shield and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
There's no need to worry, according to Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa. At the company's recent investor's Q&A, he mentioned how the Japanese video game giant had other games planned for this period but said it had become "increasingly difficult" to follow the current schedule due to the current restrictions in place.
For our forecast, we have games that are scheduled to release during this period other than what’s been announced. However, many workers at Nintendo and our partners are working from home during this time. Considering the working environments between home and office are quite different, it could become increasingly difficult to release our games in line with our current schedule if the situation is prolonged. As things currently stand, we’re forecasting as if we’ll be able to release our games according to schedule.
We already know about projects like Metroid Prime 4, and the sequel to The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, but what do you think we could see released this year? Perhaps we might finally see something like Bayonetta 3 or how about the rumoured Super Mario remasters? Share your own thoughts below.
