What to Expect From Nintendo in 2024

2023 was a stellar year for Nintendo, with the release of a hit Blockbuster movie, the opening of a theme park, and multiple Game of the Year nominees. However, fans are now eagerly anticipating what Nintendo has in store for 2024. With rumors swirling about a possible Switch 2, it’s time to speculate on what the future holds for Nintendo. Let’s dive into what we can expect in the upcoming year.

Release Calendar and Game Lineup

Nintendo has a packed schedule for the first half of 2024, with several game releases already confirmed. From a remake of the niche game Trace Memory to the eagerly awaited Princess Peach Showtime, there’s a lot to look forward to. Alongside these, remakes of Luigi’s Mansion 2 and Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door are also set to hit shelves. However, the abundance of remakes in the lineup hints at the possibility that the Switch’s lifecycle might be winding down.

New Hardware Rumors

The highlight of the year might be the much-anticipated release of new hardware from Nintendo. Speculation is rife about the potential launch of a new console, possibly the rumored Switch 2. Reports suggest that Nintendo is planning for a second-half 2024 release, aligning with the end of ongoing DLC support for Splatoon 3 on the current Switch. This hints at the possible launch of new hardware and a transition to a new console generation.

Possible Launch of Iconic Titles

With the potential release of new hardware, fans are hopeful for the arrival of iconic game titles alongside the new console. A new 3D Mario and Mario Kart 9 are some of the highly anticipated games that could accompany the launch of the new hardware. This speculation is further bolstered by the success of Super Mario Odyssey and the recent delightful bite-sized game, Bowser’s Fury.

Metroid Prime 4 and Other Ventures

One of the long-awaited releases is Metroid Prime 4, which fans hope to see either as a cross-generation release or exclusively for the new console. Additionally, beyond games, exciting developments such as the Universal Studios Nintendo theme park expansion and possible movies by Nintendo and Illumination are anticipated.

Additional Game Releases

Beyond the confirmed releases, there’s room for smaller releases throughout 2024. Fans can expect potential releases from Nintendo studios that have been quiet for a while, such as a new Mario Party title, a Mario sports game, or even a new remake from the talented team at Grezzo.

In summary, 2024 is shaping up to be an exciting year for Nintendo fans, filled with a potential new console, iconic game releases, and various unexpected surprises. While the exact details remain speculation for now, one thing is for certain – Nintendo enthusiasts have a lot to look forward to in the year ahead!
