Pokémon Switch Release Revised to Late 2019


Along with a few updates on hardware and software sales, Nintendo has given an updated release window for the Switch’s first core Pokémon RPG.

Pokémon Switch is now scheduled for late 2019, as opposed to the original plan of late 2018 to mid-2019, meaning that the Pokémon Let’s Go entries—set for release in November this year—will help fill the pocket-monster void.

The announcement that the Switch is creeping up on 20 million units sold overshadowed the update on the fortunes of the title.

Nintendo has been feeding fans semi-regular updates since the game’s reveal during 2017’s E3 and seems at least confident in the 2019 window. An October-to-November release window makes sense, too, considering many previous mainline Pokémon entries have released in that time period.

As well as the hardware updates, Nintendo confirmed that its software sales are healthy. ARMS, Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze, and LABO have sold approximately 2 million, 1.5 million, and 1.4 million units respectively.
