Nintendo Senior Managing Executive Officer Shinya Takahashi in a Q&A to investors revealed Nintendo has several unannounced Switch titles that are coming out this year. 

"Compared to the NES era, there are a lot more developers, larger development teams," said Takahashi. "We conduct development in a variety of locations, as the number of development centers also increased. So although it’s true that the volume of software is increasing, there are more people involved in developing it, there are more development processes in place to bring it all together, and development scale has expanded, I believe, regarding plans [on] how to develop software. We are working better than before partly because development departments have been integrated.

"I have heard some people say we have a tendency towards slow development, but thatʼs certainly not true in every case. We have titles currently in development that we havenʼt announced yet, some of which weʼre preparing to release this year, and I donʼt anticipate the kind of delays they would be concerned about."

It is possible the release dates for Animal Crossing, Luigi's Mansion 3 and Daemon X Machina were leaked by UK retailer Base.com.

Comparing the Switch era to the NES era in this way is weird. The industry is massively larger today, and it has been obvious to everyone for the last few generations that there are more and much larger development teams these days.
