Nintendo Switch


 

Nintendo might have a few surprises up its sleeve in the form of unannounced releases coming in 2019, according to a trusted leaker.

Emily Rogers, who correctly predicted Super Smash Bros. Ultimate‘s 2018 release and Pokémon: Let’s Go, is back and making another bold prediction about the Switch’s 2019 release schedule.

According to Rogers’ post on ResetEra, Nintendo still has at least five unannounced Switch exclusives coming in 2019, with a possibility for 11 titles by year’s end. Rogers states that there are 8 titles (including a new Labo kit) with a “70 percent chance or higher” of launching in 2019, with three additional titles that have a “50 precent chance or less” of seeing releases this year.

Of the first 8, in addition to an announced Labo kit, four of the mystery titles are straight-up Switch games, one is a port of a 2013 Wii U title, and the other two are eShop games, presumably part of the Nindies program. The games with less of a chance of making the cut in 2019 are Retro Studios’ “secret game,” a rumored Metroid Prime Trilogy HD remaster, and a second Wii U port.

So how believable are these rumors? Well, we do know that Retro was working on a mysterious title with Deus Ex composer Alexander Brandon before Nintendo hired the studio to take over Metroid Prime 4‘s development, but Retro hasn’t spoken about its non-Metroid game even just a little bit, and now with Prime 4 on its docket, it would be interesting to see how much of a priority this mystery project is.

As for what is almost certainly coming in 2019, an unannounced Wii U port seems like a pretty good guess. I’m hoping for either Super Mario 3D World, but I’d still be pretty happy with Pikmin 3 or even a Wind Waker HD port. As for the other titles, that’s anyone’s guess, though a new core Pokémon title in 2019 is also possible.

This year is already looking pretty stacked for Nintendo’s first-party titles. Luigi’s Mansion 3, the next Animal Crossing, and Fire Emblem: Three Heroes are already scheduled for 2019 releases, so getting at least five more big titles this year would probably go a long way toward’s Nintendo’s goal of getting a Switch in every household.
