Nintendo has been releasing quarterly information about its upcoming plans thanks to the end of Q2 yesterday. With Iwata back at the helm and the holiday season almost upon us, many investors want to know about the more distant future since whatever holiday plans Nintendo have cemented for the release of Super Smash Bros. are probably already under way.

In Nintendo’s financial report released yesterday, the forecast for upcoming games remains unchanged, meaning 2015 could be the biggest year ever for the Wii U. According to the forecast, The Legend of Zelda, Star Fox, and Xenoblade Chronicles X are all still on track to make their 2015 debut. Kirby: The Rainbow Curse is also scheduled to hit the console next year, while coming sooner rather than later will be Splatoon, Mario Maker and Yoshi’s Woolly World to help keep the Wii U from experiencing the drought in early months.

The only game featured in the list that does not have a date for release is Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem, which hasn’t been discussed more than a few minutes in any Nintendo presentation since it was announced way back in January 2013.
