Poll: Did Nintendo win 2019 already? (99 votes)

Yep 39%
Nah, we don’t know that yet 59%

Nintendo has been announcing games left and right. It’s starting to make Sony look like the old dinosaur it is. And let’s not talk about Xbox because the One is already extinct. What do you think, SW? Did Nintendo win 2019 already? We got Pokémon, new Zelda, Fire Emblem, Astral Chain, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Daemon X Machina, possibly Bayonetta 3 and more.

If that’s the best the big N has upcoming then no, not even close.

I’m happy with my X1X going forward.

edit: Tetris 99 has me envious though. That looks insanely fun.

When it comes to first party they have done it easily already. Easy win for Nintendo but ofcourse 3rd party have and are bringing it for the other two. The biggest games from the other two are Crackdown 3 and Days Gone. Sony is supposedly on there brilliant control and woo game jurnos behind the scenes mode. Rumours are there big games without release dates are being shown behind the scenes.

Their lineup this year looks great. Switch is the first Nintendo console I've enjoyed since the GC.

Rehashes and shovelware is all that they have. Maybe if you are under 12 you would feel any kind of hype for this kiddy garbage.

No the big games for Xbox this year are Ori 2 and Gears 5.

Nah. Though 2019 isn't the best year for exclusives in general, so I guess that gives Nintendo a window just with Pokemon (even though I hate Pokemon, can't deny it's a huge seller and has a freakish following).

For me Nintendo's 2019 is basically Mario Maker 2 and Fire Emblem. I'm not sure I'd put either of those above Ghost of Tsushima. But Nintendo wins on quantity. That being said, there's a bunch of multiplats that are up there and probably above any of these exclusives. Not a great year for exclusives by any stretch.

They have a staggering amount planned for this year

-Super Mario Maker 2

-Luigi's Mansion 3

-Pokemon Sword and Shield

-Astral Chain

-Fire Emblem Three Houses

-Animal Crossing

-The Legend of Zelda Link's Awakening

To name a few. This is what happens when they unify their developers on one system.

@Pikminmaniac:

1. Wiiu port

2. 3ds port

3. Pokemon

4. What?

5. 3ds port

6. 3ds port

7. Gameboy port.

Ha ha. Ha. So one Pokemon with more rpg but a same story as gameboy, and a game nobody ever hear of. Nice try.

Yeah, Nintendo pretty obviously has this year in the bag.

Having said that, what are the top 15 games confirmed for 2019 on the PS4 and Xbox 1?

I don't think their lineup is that great, but it's much better than Sony's or MS's.

Since MS and Sony are on its last legs, i have no doubt Switch is gonna dominate this year. Switch is taking most of my gaming time anyways so im happy with that.

Once Pokemon Sword & Shield releases, Nintendo Switch automatically wins 2019. This is definitely been an amazing year for Switch. Glad Nintendo is taking this way more seriously then they did with Wii U.

In the mobile gaming market Nintendont was forced into because they can't compete with the big boys; smart phones are winning by light-years. lol :P

For sure. I'm way more excited for Luigi's Mansion 3, Astral Chain, Bayonetta 3 and Fire Emblem though.
The Pokemon reveal didn't really convince me (yet).

The only games with release dates I want so far are Yoshi, Fire Emblem and Pokémon

There’s no confirmation of Animal Crossing, Luigi’s Mansion or Bayonetta 3 so why are they mentioned here?

@SolidGame_basic

wut?

Sooo, let me get this straight... it's still february, the PS4 is at the end of its lifecycle after 5 years on the market, the switch is only two years old and Sony is a dinossaur for not announcing any new games after years of delivering the goods? Have gamers really become this much spoiled?!

Sony is already thinking about the PS5, off course it wont be announcing any major new games soon

Not For me I'm not remotely interested in Pokemon. I haven't played one since blue so that doesn't matter to me. It is an interesting system which I'm still interested in picking up hoping for a mini at some point this year. Sony might have it if tlou2, ghosts and death stranding all make it.

So that's your full list for 2019? Seems a bit thin.

Also, I wouldn't buy watered-down ports of RE2 or Metro on the consoles - I'd obviously just buy them on the PC. As for KH3...I wouldn't buy that regardless, since the whole IP has been a bit rubbish.

All runs pretty good on console unlike that certain console whom can't play any of it. I dunno, we get plenty of games every month its hard to keep track, games just keeps coming every month.. Oh we will get sekiro soon too. oh dont worry, keep waiting for another switch remaster, its coming, probably.

Your less-than-subtle implication is that Switch isn't releasing solid games. That's unequivocally wrong.

Sheep are truly delusional.

They think Wii u ports, 3DS ports and gameboy ports means they won.

What kind of fantasy world do you live in where you get hyped for trash games like

“Zelda, Fire Emblem, Astral Chain, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Daemon X Machina, Bayonetta 3”

And whatever else was listed. Do you understand that these are terrible niche games most people hate? These are all 4/10 games at best.

Then you got Mario ports, Pokémon rehashes and animal crossing no content rehashes...

The switch has one of the worst line ups of the year and sales are going to tank.
