While 2017 was a great year for Nintendo witch in terms of games, 2018 couldn’t really match up to it. With 2019 in full swing now, all Nintendo Switch owners are hoping for the company to do as well as it did in 2017. And from what it seems, the company is planning to ramp up its performance this year.
Nintendo already has some decent offerings for its owners this year including Yoshi’s Crafted World, Luigi’s Mansion 3, a new game from Animal Crossing, Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Daemon X Machina, a new Pokemon game, and probably Bayonetta 3 too.
However, if a recent report is to be believed, all these games are not all that Nintendo plans to get for its users this year. In fact, this is just the tip of the ice-berg. The report suggests that Nintendo still has 12 unannounced Switch games that the company will launch this year.
We should mention that this has been reported by Emily Rogers, who is a renowned reporter and Nintendo insider and her previous leaks about the company have been very accurate. It was Rogers who had reported everything about Nintendo’s Switch even before the console was revealed or launched.
The recent report about Nintendo’s 12 unannounced games for Switch surfaced online on ResetEra. The report further said that all these games will be launched by the company this year itself and among them, three games are eShop-only titles, one is Nintendo Labo kit, two are Wii U ports. The remaining six games that the company plans to launch this year are big retail games.
According to the report, among the 12 games, nine have more than 75% of being launched this year and the other three – among which two are bigger retail games and one is Wii u port – have about 50% chance of releasing this year.
The report also said that the latter group is basically the Metroid Prime Trilogy, however, it has not officially been confirmed yet. And another game among the 12 is Retro Studios secret project, which may be the Star Fox Racing.
Even though Rogers has a history of giving out accurate reports about Nintendo, we should suggest that as of now, you must take everything with a pinch of salt as it’s too early to comment on whether this information is true or not, considering that there is no other leak on the internet that is in line with it.
And if you don’t have a Nintendo Switch and think you’ll be missing out on a lot this year, you can order one for yourself here.
