Industry Insider leaks 2022 Nintendo games lineup


By Ray Ampoloquio July 19, 2021

It appears that an industry insider has leaked information for Nintendo's 2022 games lineup.

markomaro is a notable industry insider. They successfully leaked Metroid Dread months before Nintendo announced the game at E3 2021.

Cameron Hawkins corroborated the lineup of titles on his personal account on Twitter, saying the leaked lineup "checks out with a lot of things" that he's heard himself.

If even a fraction of the lineup is true, then 2022 is going to be an even bigger year for the Nintendo Switch than expected.

We already know that Pokémon Legends: Arceus will release in January 2022, with the Breath of the Wild sequel expected to release within the same year as well.

Nintendo is going to need to beef up its lineup, especially with the Steam Deck now on the market. 

With all that said, one thing that we can take away from this is that Nintendo doesn't want to explore other venues for its exclusives just yet.

The arrival of Days Gone reaffirms Sony's plan on porting its exclusives to the PC.

On the other hand, Nintendo remains steadfast in its commitment to the Nintendo Switch.

The leaked 2022 lineup should only give audiences even more of a reason to hold on to their Nintendo Switch.
