With the announcement of Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch, fans may be pretty excited to see what’s coming to the hybrid console later this year. If they weren’t excited enough for E3 2018, then the latest revelation that Nintendo could reveal 15 games for the Switch may be enough to get the hype train moving.
It appears that GameStop has 15 unknown games in its computer systems for the Nintendo Switch. Given that there is less than a month until the premier trade event for the gaming industry begins, news of these games may slowly pour in before being officially revealed. It’s worth mentioning that the prices and dates depicted below are likely to be placeholders, but check out the available SKUs here:

The possibilities for the 15 games are nearly endless, with many players wanting games such as Ridge Racer, Metroid Prime 4, Fire Emblem, Animal Crossing, Mario Party, and Bayonetta 3. It also seems likely that Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate takes up one of these slots, that ports may take up a few spots, and perhaps Nintendo will even introduce some new IP for the Switch.
There is one franchise that almost seems guaranteed to take up two slots: Pokemon for the Switch. Everything from fake leaked titles, such as Pokemon 0 and Pokemon 1, to leaked starters have plagued fans of the franchise this year, so the fact that there are 15 available SKUs seems to lock in an official Pokemon announcement, but there has been no official word on this matter at the time of this writing.
E3 is right around the corner, so gamers only need to wait a little longer to discover what these 15 games will be. Notably, players should be cautious of this reveal, as Nintendo hasn’t weighed in on whether this number is accurate or not. Although there isn’t much news concerning Nintendo and E3 yet, a demo of Super Smash Bros will be open to the public, and if this news proves to be true, it appears to be shaping up to be a good year for the hybrid console.
