These titles are Animal Crossing New Horizons, Pokemon Mystery Dungeon DX, Xenoblade Chronicles Remake, No More Heroes 3 and Bravely Default 2.

The latter three titles don’t even have a confirmed release date yet and are just pencilled in for a 2020 release.

So, after this Friday’s release of Animal Crossing Switch that’s it for Nintendo published games with set release dates for the year.

Considering the Switch’s release schedule for the year, fans are expecting Ninty to have plenty of surprises in store for 2020.

According to the rumour mill Zelda Breath of the Wild 2 was originally meant to be the big holiday Switch release for 2020.

But it is believed BoTW 2 is taking longer than anticipated to develop and will now be replaced with another high-profile title.

Metroid Prime 4, Pikmin 4, Mario Kart 9 and a new Paper Mario game are the contenders, according to the rumour mill.

These are some of the titles that could get announced during the next Nintendo Direct.

It is also believed that Ninty has more Wii U ports in the works for the Switch.

While fans may also see an update on Bayonetta 3 and Shin Megami Tensei V in the next Nintendo Direct.
