Nintendo Has One Unannounced Game for 2019 That'll Make "Everyone Happy"

Fingers crossed for Ice Climbers.

During Nintendo's financial briefing earlier this week, the company said it is preparing at least one unannounced game for the Nintendo Switch that "will make everyone happy." That's according to reports from one person listening in on Nintendo's briefing.

According to Wall Street Journal's Takashi Mochizuki, Nintendo is planning at least one unannounced title for the Switch in fiscal year 2019, or the period beginning in April 2019. This project is presumably different from the titles previously announced for the year which includes a new mainline Pokemon, Animal Crossing, Luigi's Mansion 3, Yoshi's Crafted World, and Fire Emblem: Three Houses.

The only hint we have is that Nintendo says it "will make everyone happy," but Nintendo would probably say that about any of its properties. That hasn't stopped fans from speculating what the announcement could be. Guesses so far include everything from a new F-Zero game, Star Fox, to a new Kid Icarus title. Personally, I'm hoping Nintendo announces a new Advance Wars, but who knows?

In other news from Nintendo's financial briefing, the company announced that more than 8 million accounts have registered for the Nintendo Switch Online service. This figure doesn't include trial accounts but does include family accounts which allows up to eight family members play online across different Switch units under a single subscription.

Nintendo says it plans on expanding the service's offering to provide more incentive among Nintendo Switch others to join Nintendo Switch Online, and to retain existing subscribers. Rumors suggest there could be more online games coming to the console, and maybe even SNES games joining the Classics library.
