Mario Maker 2, Animal Crossing and Astral Chain for me, chief. Couldn't care less about everything else especially after playing that Daemon X Machina demo, yikes.

Add a poll option for meh.

Same as what I said in the other thread- I'll judge it once we know more, something closer to the full picture. I'm not gonna give them credit for games that could be delayed/cancelled and I'm not gonna rule out more announcements like Super Mario Party of last year which was only announced at E3.

It's really strong, possibly their best year since launch. I mean, sure, there are no BoTWs or Odysseys this year, but it also got more high-quality games than 2017.

The ones I want are also available (or will be available on the PS4) like Oninaki, Deltarune, and DQB2 (English version) so the only thing I'm interested is Astral Chain.

Other than that, it's OK. I have one game for Switch this year (maybe FFX too).

The thing is most of the listed titles aren't exclusives, taking them out the equation will result in just a less than a mediocre line up :/

A non-port first party title each month for the rest of the year. Including mario, zelda, and pokemon. The promise of all software output on one system is becoming realized.

Worst year yet, subjectively. I either don't care for (most of them), am wary about (Pokémon, Astral Chain), would rather get on another platform (DOOM), or it's a port.

Super Mario Maker 2 looks good though.

First half of the year is barren of tentpile releases but my Switch will be busy with ports and indies. The second half will murder my wallet and free time.

Links Awakening remake and Astral Chain!
Gotta admit that im slightly disappointed that its not an original Zelda title, nonetheless im looking forward to it.

Lots of titles fit in the Nice! category, but other than the 2 listed above, im not moved to buy day 1 so to speak.

It's looking very, very good. Don't know if it'll beat 2017 in terms of quality, but the sheer number of games coming out on the Switch this year that I cannot wait to play really excites me.

I'm sort of between "it's alright" and "well stacked". It's looking good to me, but I wouldn't call it stacked.

Though I only need a few games to be happy since there's plenty of other good stuff to play on other platforms.

As someone who only cares about first party games (for the most part), it's a pretty decent year when you also factor in Pokémon Gen 8, Luigi's Mansion 3, & Animal Crossing Switch. It's no 2017 (as of now), but there's a lot to look forward to.

I'll wait to see if Star Fox Grand Prix is this year, but I like this year more than 2018 for the switch already. Though I have big reservations about the direction of Fire Emblem: Three Houses, a new Platinum and a new Mario Maker is hype. And a top 3 Zelda is getting remade!

Link's Awakening was the only thing I actually cared when it was announced, but I expected a remake with the graphics of BoTW. I would run and buy a Switch this weekend.

Other than that, nothing else interest me, so I it's alright year.

Edit. I lie, I am also interested on Luigi's Mansion 3, but I didn't liked 2, so I hope it's more like the original one.

Deltarune is not older stuff, it's brand new....

Added: And you forgot Boxboy and Tetris 99

Why would you take them out of the equation though, outside of dumb as fuck console wars that is?

It's alright.
I'm probably getting Astral Chain, Link and Pokemon RPG. And Animal Crossing for daughters/wife.
Astral Chain has the potential to be really good though, hopefully it will be a 60 hz game.

Getting Zelda, Luigi's Mansion and Animal Crossing (just spit out that fucking release date omfg), so that's two more games than in 2018 !

Seriously though it's a damn good line up especially if Switch is your main console.

I don't see a game on the horizon that interests me whatsoever. The Switch is basically a Super Smash machine, with a Tennis chaser, and some SNK games that aren't on PS4 yet. Waiting for a real Star Fox or F-Zero game, hell even a Custom Robo comebacl, and I have a feel I'll be waiting forever.

I'm interested in 5 to 6 of those presuming they all come out this year so I'm happy. It's more or less what I would expect every year from Nintendo considering they appear to be combining handheld and console into one platform. I'm glad that 2018 appears to have been a blip and Nintendo look back on track now.

Mario Maker 2 alone would have been stellar, that in tandem with about a dozen other killer titles is bonkers.

If there are any titles left in the pipe (i.e. Prime Trilogy, StarFox, Pokémon), that is going to be almost unfathomably good.

Needs more third party ports. I want play stuff like GTA5, Fallout4, Rage 2, XCOM 2, Spyro Collection, DMC Collection, KH Collection on the go too.

Some genres are criminally under represented, especially modern ones like open world games and FPS titles. I've been waiting for years for the surge of both genres on portables I think Switch is the place this can finally happen.

There hasn't been any officially announced game that I'd 100% buy yet, not counting games like Pokemon/Animal Crossing which have no details. Fire Emblem and Zelda are like 95% but after the Direct I have my concerns. I'd like Platinum's game to be great. I still have faith 2019 could be Switch's best year yet but the Direct has me conflicted and did not see fit to appease me with MPT or Animal Crossing news.
