Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa has hinted to investors that Nintendo will likely postpone its release due to the Corona virus. Which games could be affected were not revealed. At Nintendo, too, the teams are currently working from their home office, which is why productivity is somewhat limited.
After Nintendo had to announce some time ago that the production of the Nintendo Switch due to the Corona virus is currently being shut down, the pandemic now seems to have a major impact on the development of the games. Like many other developer studios, Nintendo is currently working from its home office. However, the possibilities for teams are somewhat limited here.
According to Nintendo President Shuntaro Furukawa, some dates may not be kept as planned. Since Nintendo often announces games only a few months before the release, gamers are unlikely to notice them. Just this week, Paper Mario: The Origami King was launched, a new role-playing game that will be released on July 17, 2020 exclusively for Nintendo Switch.
For the rest of the year, Nintendo has not yet released any games. Rumors have been circulating for a long time that a collection of Super Mario 64, Super Mario Sunshine and Super Mario Galaxy for Nintendo Switch will be available on the 35th anniversary of Super Mario. A new edition of Super Mario 3D World is also planned. In addition, Pikmin 3 Deluxe seems to be in the starting blocks. Fans will have to do without a Nintendo Direct for now. Paper Mario: The Origami King was only announced this week via Twitter. We'll keep you up to date with more Nintendo launches.
