Nintendo of Europe seems to have a pretty busy second half of the year between 3DS and Switch releases. Considering they just announced games such as Yo-Kai Watch 2 last week, we can probably expect even more releases and more limited editions (both Hyrule Warriors titles and both Xenoblade Chronicles games got limited editions for example, FE Warriors already has a limited edition announced for Japan).

October

Fire Emblem Warriors for Nintendo 3DS - Fall

Hardware

Nintendo Switch - Neon Red/Blue + Splatoon 2 - July 21
Nintendo Switch Pro Controller - Splatoon 2 Edition - July 21
Nintendo Switch Accessory Set (Carry Case + Screen Protector) - Splatoon 2 Edition - July 21

I know it's Ubi but the Mario Rabbids game is also a major Nintendo thing.

I have that, Splatoon 2, Odyssey and SNES pre-ordered.

August is too soon, and it's the summer. Don't expect anything for that.
And yeah, Nintendo is publishing Skyrim!

I think we may see that more often. Third party support where Nintendo publishes and eats the costs of the memory cards. They did that with Ultra Street Fighter 2 too.

You forgot Culdcept Revolt scheduled for September 1, which is probably the only nintendo published game I will buy during the rest of the year, maybe alongside Story of Season.

Edit: Seems to be published by Nisa, I thought nintendo was publishing it for some reasons.

Didn't know Story of seasons was confirmed. I'm in two minds, kind of moved on except for metroid on the 3ds and there is stardew vally on switch. On the other hand I feel like I need to support Nintendo so they keep bringing them to europe.

You're probably confused as it is actually a Nintendo game originally(in Japan), it's somewhat notable that NISA managed to get the international rights to it.

Nintendo produced the game and published it in Japan, but they decided not to bring it over. NISA is releasing it in Europe on October 6 (not September 1).

They haven't communicated the date with consumers, but they have with retailers. They also haven't communicated a retail release for Pokemon Gold/Silver.

They announced it at the end of June.

That's just the eShop version. Not sure what the listed retail version is about.

Mario x Rabbids is a Ubisoft game.

Nice gap between MH Stories and Pokémon. Two turn based RPGs back-to-back would be too much for me.

I know the feeling, I have so much to play but life gets in the way. I wish I have a Hyperbolic Time Chamber from Dragonball just to clear the backlog.

It's all handled by Ubisoft. NCL handles the publishing duties in Japan next year.

Two to three days before release?

Oh man, September is stacked, I'm going to have to make some hard choices in the end weeks there. I only have so much free time lol. Lots of great stuff though to year's end, I really only have no interest in Dr Kawishima or the Mario & Luigi games, otherwise I'd play it all if I could. I'm gonna try anyway.

Is Pokemon Gold/Silver just a weird listing then?

Yeah, for the NES Mini they sold it exclusively through their online store (nos.nintendo-europe.com). You can still just use any adapter you already have.
