Nintendo has revealed that they have unannounced Nintendo Switch games that will release this holiday season, which, we can assume, have been saved for a Nintendo Direct in the coming months.
While we know that Super Mario Party, Pokémon: Let’s Go Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go Eevee!, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will close out the year, there may be a few more surprises in the works to help the portable home console maintain sales momentum.
“We have been putting forth our best effort to be ready to release information to consumers at the appropriate time. We are not yet at the point where we can announce our entire product lineup, including the products that will be released during the holiday season,” former president and representative director Tatsumi Kimishima had explained at Nintendo’s 78th Annual General Meeting of Shareholders.
“We are aiming to sell 20 million units during this fiscal year, the second year since the launch of Nintendo Switch, and have released first-party titles like Nintendo Labo in April, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze in May and Mario Tennis Aces on June 22. And then for the holiday season, we are planning to release Super Mario Party on October 5, Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!/Let’s Go, Eevee! on November 16, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on December 7.
“We plan to use this robust lineup, including popular titles that were already released prior to the last fiscal year, to maintain and increase the momentum we have with Nintendo Switch for the holiday season, which is the most significant period for sales. We will communicate more detailed information to consumers at a later date.”
