Nintendo Switch owners have plenty to look forward to this year, with a number of high-profile titles pencilled in for a release.
In 2019 fans of the hit hybrid console will be getting big name first-party titles like Animal Crossing Switch, Luigi’s Mansion 3, a new Fire Emblem and the Gen 8 Pokemon title.
The Nintendo Switch games list could also be boosted by the release of Bayonetta 3 - the sequel to the cult action classics from Platinum Games.
However, by the sounds of it Nintendo also has another major release planned for the Switch in 2019.
In the briefing for their most recent fiscal results, Nintendo teased that a secret title is set to come out on the Nintendo Switch in 2019.
There is at least one major unannounced game coming to the Switch in 2019, and it’s something that “will make everyone happy.”
The news was revealed
online by Wall Street Journal tech reporter Takashi Mochizuki, and then translated by Gematsu.

However, this blow could be softened by the rumours that a Metroid Prime trilogy compilation is in the works for the Switch.
Could this be the title Nintendo alluded to in their recent briefing?
