Hello friends. So game announcements are coming thick and fast at the moment, this year is pretty stacked already and it's not even E3 time yet! In order to keep track of what's coming out and when for all the Switch owners out there, as well as those of you on the fence about jumping in, I'm compiling a list of all the confirmed games and their release dates.*

Of course things can change due to delays and such, so feel free to correct me on any inaccuracies or if I skipped over something. I'll keep the list updated throughout the year.

*A couple of small caveats - Nintendo puts a ton of indies onto the eShop each week, so in the interest of conciseness I'm going to exclude most of them, with some higher profile indie exceptions here and there. Also, this list in based on the PAL region release dates.

Nintendo exclusives are in bold.

Hey cheers dude, yeah maybe once it starts to take shape a bit more with the unconfirmed stuff I'll try and request a sticky. :D

I am sure we'll get some Pokemon news before March, Pokemon day is on the 27th.

RPG maker sounds perfect for the switch. Pretty good list I'm hoping to hear something of a metroid prime trilogy in 2019.

Had no idea the switch was getting resident evil origins.

@mandzilla: Really just looking forward to Animal Crossing. Also, thanks for giving this board some love. I really like the Nintendo board even though it's not looked at much. :(

Hey no worries, I've seen you make a lot of good threads on here so give yourself a pat on the back also lol. Animal Crossing is gonna replace Stardew Valley as my new addiction.

@mandzilla: I'm really hoping that I don't end up time travelling in the Switch version like I've done in previous entries. I'd consider myself to never have actually finished an Animal Crossing game. Even though I'm a huge fan of the games. Mainly because I've been too impatient or I've stopped to play other things. But don't time travel. It ruins the experience immensely. :( In a nutshell though they are "social" games. So you play them the way you want to play them imo.

I will definitely be taking my time with the Switch game! I didn't play much of Pocket Camp.

@speeny: Oww right thanks for the advice, I will avoid time travelling. Yeah I can certainly relate to that, never finished a lot of games because I usually get 50 hours in and start over (looking at you Skyrim, Stardew Valley).

Yeah, good plan dude. I mostly just take my time in general with all stuff, and I'm enjoying New Leaf at the moment. :D
