This year Trevor and Justin battle it out with some predictions that range from modest to audacious.

Check out last year’s predictions HERE to see how James and I did and cheer Trevor and I on for this year’s predictions!

*Wild Cards are worth two points

Justin’s Predictions

  1. More high-profile, surprising third-party titles will get ported to the Switch (think along the lines of Mortal Kombat 11, Doom Eternal, etc.)
  2. Some other Zelda related news will be announced in 2019 (other than Skyward Sword HD which is listed below)
  3. Retro Studios’ next game finally unveiled (I’ve had this prediction 4 years now – 4th time’s the charm right….right? – I’m really thinking 2019 will be the year since Tropical Freeze came out in 2014)
  4. Metroid Prime Trilogy gets an HD Switch port to build anticipation for Metroid Prime 4
  5. Skyward Sword will see an HD re-release on the Nintendo Switch
  6. There will be a new Metroid Prime 4 trailer this year
  7. Nintendo will announce the first hardware revision for the Nintendo Switch (Switch Lite / Pro – I could almost see a handheld focused model release that would attempt to fill the void of the 3DS by providing a cheaper Switch option before the new mainline Pokemon games launch)
  8. The Nintendo Switch Online service will see SNES titles launch
  9. Luigi’s Mansion 3 will release in 2019
  10. Pikmin 4 will finally be revealed

*Wild Cards

  1. Nintendo 64 Mini / Classic Edition will launch in 2019
  2. F-Zero finally gets a new follow-up announced

    6. A sequel to Super Mario Odyssey will be announced.
    7. A new wave of Animal Crossing amiibo will release with the launch of the series new installment on Switch.
