Shin Megami Tensei V
  • Developer: Atlus
  • Publisher: Atlus
  • Platforms: NS
  • Release: TBA

The Shin Megami Tensei series will see its fifth installment soon on the Nintendo Switch. There are not too many details released for the game so far and it may not even launch within the 2019 release cycle. However, the franchise has a strong following and developers Atlus are hard at work in delivering a game that will be appealing to play on the home console setup along with the portability of the Nintendo Switch.

While Atlus are currently in development for the game, Kazuyuki Yamai, the producer behind Shin Megami Tensei V has previously stated that there will be more attention to developing demons this time around. We’re hoping that the game will make an appearance in the near future.


Bayonetta 3
  • Developer: Platinum Games
  • Publisher: Nintendo
  • Platforms: NS
  • Release: TBA

The Bayonetta series will receive a third installment. Development studio Platinum Games has previously spoken of an interest in going back to the series depending on if the sequel, Bayonetta 2, was deemed a success.

Bayonetta 3 has since been announced, though there have been no details as to what gamers can expect from the title. Instead, we will likely see the Umbra Witch, Bayonetta, come back fighting more massive demons and angels. Likewise, there have been statements from the developers suggesting that gamers can expect an even tighter action title when Bayonetta 3 finally hits store shelves.


Fire Emblem: Three Houses
  • Developer: Intelligent Systems
  • Publisher: Nintendo
  • Platforms: NS
  • Release: 2019

During Nintendo’s E3 2018 Nintendo Direct video upload we received the announcement of Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Unfortunately, Nintendo didn’t got into any details regarding the game outside of a small trailer which showcases a brutal war. Players will follow Byleth, Edelgard, Dimitri, and Claude in a new tactical RPG journey but for now, we’ll have to wait until more details are announced for the game.


Daemon X Machina
  • Developer: Marvelous
  • Publisher: Nintendo
  • Platforms: NS
  • Release: 2019

A brand new mech game was unveiled for the Nintendo Switch during the Nintendo Direct of E3 2018 called Daemon X Machina. The trailer showcased a cel-shaded style title in which players will be able to customize their mechs before jumping into intense battles.

This was another title that only received a small trailer during Nintendo’s E3 Direct video uploaded so we’re left with a few questions regarding what to expect when the title eventually hits store shelves in 2019. However, the bright colorful visuals is definitely something to take note of.
