Nintendo was the top publisher in the USA in 2018, and Switch sales were up 18% year over year. The video revealed a February 1 launch date for the turn-based strategy game Wargroove (Chucklefish), the announcement of the next game in the acclaimed SteamWorld universe, SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech (Image & Form Games / Thunderful Publishing) and more indie news.
That means PlayStation 4, Xbox One, or even 3DS at its peak never had a December this big. Speaking with Japan's Sankei News, Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa seemingly put to rest any rumors that a Switch refresh or price cut is in the cards for 2019. It said that Ultimate exceeded the launch month sales of Super Smash Bros. Intentionally or not, Nintendo designed the Switch console and its gaming ecosystem to appeal to all kinds of people.

While Metroid Prime 4 and Bayonetta 3 could also come out on the Nintendo Switch in 2019.
Currently, components of Nintendo Switch are stored at the upstream supply chain, waiting to be assembled and shipped with Nintendo's instruction, the sources said.

Lady Gaga scores two Oscar nominations
However, we couldn't help but notice that there are some notable names that have been left off the list this year. At last year's ceremony, Get Out paved the way for groundbreaking horror films to make waves at the Oscars.
Yes, the PS4 and the Xbox One were also made for gamers, but, more often than not, the hardware and the software are targeted at a specific demographic, one that's made of young adults that are already gamers.
And one way to do that would be to hold a Nintendo Direct revealing more about what's in store for fans in 2019. SSBU also set a sales record for a platform exclusive, outperforming the 2010 launch of Halo: Reach.
Naturally, this new spec for an early 2019 Nintendo Switch console is far from official, and it is worth remembering what Nintendo of America President, Reggie Fils-Aime said in December of a year ago, that "the current execution of Nintendo Switch with the Joy-Con and all of the capabilities, that's our focus right now".
However, holiday sales for the Switch have been "unexpectedly good".
