I wonder if there is a chance that Sakamoto could works on new IP?
I think 2D Metroid and Rhythm Tengoku will be straightforward sequels. Tomodachi has a good shot of being reinvented again to continue differentiating itself from AC, and building on its unique features.

It's surprising that Tanabe took over WarioWare.

Another Retro Studios job listing. This one was opened July last year, so it doesn't say anything about whether Retro is done with the last game they were working on or not.

I hope they go with Sakamoto's original idea for Other M with a camera like Pandemonium!. Team Ninja put their foot down in accordance with interviews and insisted on a fully 3D game, though there were still elements of it.

So Liam answered my question on his podcast and he said that the Switch Online system that he said “was more rumor-ey” was not Game Boy Online

He also said that there will be some “huge news regarding their relationship with Microsoft” coming out in the next six months

And that there a ton of unannounced games coming in 2019 that we don’t know about yet

Liam also said that heard about a Direct coming this week, and that he heard of a few games in the Direct but he doesn’t say what they are.

Interesting. My money's on xCloud for the huge Microsoft X Nintendo news.

A new Tomodachi Life game would be amazing but also seems incongruous with NIntendo's approach to Miis with the Switch. Miis are barely incorporated into the system or it's games. 1,2 Switch could easily have had Miis plastered all over it but Nintendo chose not to. Even making new Miis has become more cumbersome on the Switch compared to WiiU and 3ds with no cameras built into the system. I'd love a grand return of Miis with a new Tomodachi Life but I don't see it happening.

integrate the Mii tech they already have from the Miitomo app into Nintendo Switch Online's app and there you go.

Of course it is possible, but nothing from Switch era Nintendo indicates that they are interested in Miis as mascots and avatars as they were during the Wii/3ds/WiiU era.

If I remember correctly, both Pikmin and 2D Mario were done by the same team (EAD 4) who are now EPD 10. Are they big enough to be making Mario Maker 2, Pikmin 3 port and Pikmin 4 at the same time?

They released NSMB2 and NSMBU in 2012, New Super Luigi U and Pikmin 3 in 2013 and then Super Mario Maker in 2015.

EPD teams are producers, directors, and project leads for particular series. The bulk of developers shift between projects as needed. So, potentially they are big enough.

Is the new Platinum game party? The direct was amazing, but damn that Platinum game looks sweet AF. I may get ahead of myself, but from what we saw, I feel that it could be a game changer like dark souls was. I am very very excited to play it.

It's kind of depressing how back loaded the games are yet again this year. You'd think with the dropped off sales from last year, they would have learned not to have a barren first half.

There's now a real possibility that Starfox GP was just a big misunderstanding!! I'm so fucking happy, I had given hope that it would be fake!! Those who mocked people for saying that it may have been Starlink all along must feel quite stupid right now, but it's fine, the world now spins at the right velocity.

Thank you for the update. Mario Maker should carry Q1 by itself, although it wouldn't discard Nintendo announcing a WiiU Port or eshop game to fill in May.

I find it funny how Nintendo is essentially announcing and releasing completely new games in a 6 months time frame with Mario Maker 2 and Astral Chain.

So the big upcoming Nintendo games that we know of this year are:

Yoshi
Mario Maker 2
Fire Emblem 3H
Astral Chain
Marvel UA3
LM3
Pokemon 8
Zelda Link's Awakening

And TBC but heavily rumored for this year are

Pikmin 3
Metroid Prime Trilogy
Mayyybe Star Fox GP?

Am I missing anything?
Are we expecting anything else?

I feel like a big cornerstone game ala Smash is missing. If nothing else, I hope Pokemon turns out to be it. Pokemon is huge, I know, but feels like a B tier title these days in terms of size/budget.
