Nintendo: updated launch schedule (April 2018)

As usual, Nintendo revealed its updated launch schedule for upcoming Switch and 3DS titles today, along with its financial results for Fiscal Year 2017-18.

Unfortunately, this is a document for investors, who can check out how many games are coming out for each platform. It’s not a list for consumers or even the press, with exact dates or anything. Therefore, do not expect to find many new release dates in the charts below.

The lists below do not have anything really new first party-wise, and all the dates were previously announced at various occasions (Nintendo Direct, E3 2017, etc.). The only relevant new tidbit is that the 3DS is pretty much done, with very few first-party titles and only one third-party game listed. Also, it looks like there’s no change regarding the release of the long-awaited Pokémon RPG on Nintendo Switch.

Left column is for 3DS games, right column is for Switch games:

NB: since the planning is for the current Fiscal Year (April 1st to March 31st), it includes already released titles (such as Nintendo Labo). And as always, keep in mind those lists are not exhaustive (they’re actually missing quite a few games and/or dates): for the complete list of upcoming games on all platforms, make sure to check out our Upcoming Games page!
