After E3 2018 came and went, some folks were understandably concerned about the lack of new Switch titles coming down the pipeline. As it turns out, there are likely more on their way. Former Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima announced during the recent Nintendo shareholders meeting that the company is indeed planning on announcing additional games for the Nintendo Switch later this year…at the “appropriate” time.
Kimishima was asked about Nintendo’s E3 presentation, and the following fact that it actually had caused a decline in stock value afterward. He assured those in attendance that Nintendo is currently planning on disclosing additional information to customers at an “appropriate” time, including new titles that will be released near the end of the year for the holidays. He did stress, however, that now is not the time to announce the company’s full lineup.
He did state that the games would be released before the end of the fiscal year, noting that they would be part of a powerful lineup. He referenced the “year-end shopping battle” a few times, referencing the holiday rush for presents and other items before the holidays come to an end, and said that additional information will be sent out to customers in the future. So it certainly seems like there are lots of cool titles planned for the foreseeable future, but we just have no idea as to when we might see them.
