Luigi’s Mansion 3, Animal Crossing Nintendo Switch Release Dates Leak
2019 holds the promise of quite a few games on Nintendo Switch, two of the more anticipated of the bunch being an all new Animal Crossing title and the ghostly threequel Luigi’s Mansion 3. The pair were first announced as part of a Nintendo Direct presentation in September 2018, both beloved franchises seeing their next entries slated for a “2019” release window. Such a vague span of time would surely be enough to put fans’ hype on the backburner, but it now appears both games have attained more specific release dates.
According to a some recent product listings over on Base.com, it looks like we won’t have to wait all year before either title lands on the Nintendo Switch. The UK-based retailer shows that Luigi’s Mansion 3 is gearing up for a release on July 19th, while the tentative Animal Crossing game, here listed as ‘Welcome to Animal Crossing,’ will see a subsequent launch on September 13th.
Listing such precise information before the likes of Amazon or even Nintendo themselves is pretty peculiar, but not unheard of in this day and age. However, as it doesn’t appear the entertainment site is directly affiliated with Nintendo, it’s probably best not to invest too greatly in these supposed dates, however compelling they may be.
Taking new details with a grain of salt may be pretty difficult for Nintendo Switch users out there as of late, as the company is expected to be preparing big plans for their popular hybrid console. Not only are a myriad of overdue games being lined up for the system, but exciting new functionality such as 3D gaming and the crossover possibility of Xbox Live.
