If you ran Nintendo, what would the 2018 release calendar look like? [roundtable]
We already know most of the 2017 stuff. So let's just assume that we know all of it.

How would you guys arrange the 2018 Nintendo first/second-party software schedule to maintain and build on Nintendo's current momentum? Let's assume about ten medium to big first/second-party games. And you can throw in a bit of third-party strategy, as well.
Try to think more from a business perspective and less from a wish fulfillment perspective. And keep it semi-realistic. Like, don't say 10 sequels to BOTW. Think about a plausible use of Nintendo's current resources, and consider which studios (Retro, for example) have had the bandwidth to release a title in 2018.

Metroid Prime Pinball 2 would be amazing!

But I suspect what we'll see from Metroid is... nothing. Not a single game.

I mean why make even one Metroid game when you can make the 25th Kirby or the 132nd Fire Emblem game to come out in the past few days?

Well, I guess that I can't say Pokken anymore. I should probably post my reply before E3. To wit!

January) Xenoblade Chronicles 2? - Monolith Soft

February) Super Smash Bros. 4 DX (3DS+Wii U content+more) - They can't stuff it into this year. So stuff it into next year! - Sora & Helpers

March) Fire Emblem Switch - Intelligent Systems

April) Donkey Kong Country Returns DX (1 & 2) - Low effort, big return - Monster Games

May) Pikmin 4 - Hasn't Miyamoto been saying that this game is almost done for a while? - EAD

June) Pokemon Stars (I still believe!) - Game Freak

July) Super Mario Maker 2! - Make levels on Handheld, dock for Play Mode. - EAD

August) Kid Icarus Uprising DX! - Comfortable Edition! - Sora & Helpers

September) Luigi's Mansion 3 - Next Level Games

October) 3D Metroid (Holiday Game) - Retro (Although I'd rather have a 2D Metroid)

November) Animal Crossing (Holiday Game) - EAD

December) Mario Vs. DK Puzzle Game - NST

@Anand Add Mario Party 11 somewhere in there, and that sounds like a decent year!

@Mop it up
Ooo, good call. Plus, I forgot to mention anything NEW!

Which is probably what I'd be most excited for.

@Mop it up Only if they stop the travel together nonsense and go back to the old style.

@Zero Why not have both?

One new Metroid game every month.

The people say "well, Metroid doesn't sell." Well, we'll show them, eh? We'll show them!
