CrossCode heading to Switch in 2019

"Nintendo Switch is our primary sales objective, and we are not considering a successor or a price cut at this time". Originally, Wargroove was slated for a Q1 2019 release. It would be extremely interesting to know if the Switch's launch had a material impact on sales of either the Xbox One X or PS4 Pro - have gamers who were already plugged into Sony or Microsoft's ecosystems reacted to these refreshes by replacing hardware they already owned, or did they opt for a Nintendo system with a different value proposition than the equipment they already owned? Either way, Nintendo has demonstrated that the Switch's popularity was no passing thing. In terms of actual games, Nintendo's top-selling exclusive, Super Smash Bros. Intentionally or not, Nintendo designed the Switch console and its gaming ecosystem to appeal to all kinds of people.

While Metroid Prime 4 and Bayonetta 3 could also come out on the Nintendo Switch in 2019.

The success of the Switch surged to new heights in 2018.

Nintendo itself has given no indication that will happen, but that's not unsurprising as execs would not want to put anyone off from buying the current model. There is, however, also another reason, one where Nintendo's overarching family-friendly philosophy may have helped immensely.

A larger or smaller version, or one with more power, would make more of a difference, but despite numerous rumours there's been nothing to suggest Nintendo is planning something that drastic. The strength of the Switch overall also boosted the sales of its major games, sending 2017 games Mario Kart 8, Breath of the Wild, and Super Mario Odyssey into 2018's top 20.

Wall Street Journal reporter Takashi Mochizuki earlier this month said analysts are believing more and more Nintendo could hit its sales target.

In a new indie highlights video filled with turn-based, role-playing and platforming action, Nintendo showcased numerous new and upcoming independent games coming to the Nintendo Switch system.

However, holiday sales for the Switch have been "unexpectedly good".

If this is the case, then that would be around 15 million units sold up till December previous year.
