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).

Dr. Kawashima's Devilish Brain Training was taking up all of their resources, it was a gargantuan task, but with that now done and out of the way the team at NoE sighed, "now we can focus"

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.

haha, they had to play it for five years to stay focussed.

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

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).


Wtf, isn't Yo-kai Watch 2 without a release date? At least everywhere says autum.
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.

Hmm, so Mario X Rabbids isn't actually handled by NoE themselves?

That two week run of Metroid, VC Pokemon and Pokken is coming for me wallet, maybe I'm better off if MvC Infinite underwhelms at release.

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

Sometimes I wish I had a pause button that freezes time so I can play without feeling like a piece of shit for neglecting any responsibilities I have.

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.

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?

Wonder if that is going to be the date for Yokai Watch 2 3rd version in NA

That would be a rough stretch with that, Culdcept, and M&L within a week. Good lord.
