​Nintendo Reconfirms Its 2019 Switch Release Schedule

Earlier this week, Nintendo revealed its latest financial report. As well as sharing how much money the company had made in 2018 (a damn sight more than me), it reconfirmed that, yes, These titles are still set for their initial 2019 release windows.

This includes Switch, 3DS and mobile games, such as Mario Kart Tour. Thanks to this report, we discovered that the smartphone racer, originally planned to launch in March this year, unfortunately won't be ready until summer.

But, thankfully, there aren't many delays overall, especially on Switch. As announced last week, Metroid Prime 4 has come to a halt so Nintendo can rejig its development team. Apart from that, everything's as planned for company's flagship console. No surprises, really.

Well, that's if you disregard Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Don't worry, it's still down for a spring release. But what do we know about it? Not a great deal. And while this isn't entirely negative, many fans were expecting a post-E3 2019 launch, due to the lack of information surrounding Fire Emblem's sixteenth main instalment.

So yeah, there's nothing much else to say. You'll likely have a rough idea of when Nintendo will launch its 2019 titles already. But I suppose confirmation regarding their development, even if exact dates still haven't been revealed, is nice to hear.

Take a look all the release windows for Nintendo Switch titles in 2019:

Yoshi's Crafted World - 29th March, 2019

Fire Emblem: Three Houses - Spring 2019

Pokémon RPG for Nintendo Switch - Late 2019

Animal Crossing for Nintendo Switch - 2019

Luigi's Mansion 3 - 2019


Dragon Quest Builders 2 - 2019

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order - 2019

Bayonetta 3 - TBA

Metroid Prime 4 - TBA

As with all new games, these dates are somewhat subject to change. But Nintendo is pretty spot on when estimating. And like Prime 4 or Mario Kart Tour, the company usually lets fans know of any push backs well in advance.

What do you think about this news? Are you glad that almost everything is still on track? Which game are you looking forward to the most? Make sure you let us know on Facebook and Twitter.
