2019 is here and it already sounds like it’ll be quite the exciting year for Nintendo fans. With Mario, Zelda, and Smash already accounted for on Switch, it’s time for Nintendo’s other heavy hitters to shine, with Animal Crossing and a whole new Pokémon already being confirmed for release in the next 12 months. Third parties shouldn’t be discounted, either, with companies like Square Enix and Sega promising solid support already.
