Over on Reddit a fan Asked Jeff Kaplan from Blizzard if the Switch will ever receive Overwatch, and Jeff said… MyNameJeff. Not really, but he teased us a bit about the possibility of a Switch port!

Jeff neither confirmed nor denied the Switch would ever see a Overwatch port, but it is possible. However, I don’t know if an Overwatch port would be the best idea. One of the reasons people love Overwatch is due to the crazy good graphics. Nintendo has said time and time again that they’re focused on fun games and not necessarily graphics. So an Overwatch port would have to be drastically reduced visually, something Blizzard is probably keenly aware of. However, I can’t disregard those other gamers who don’t really mind average graphics as long as the game has fun mechanics and a great story line.

These are the gamers Blizzard is going to want to target if they are thinking of porting Overwatch to the Switch. I for one, wouldn’t mind a graphically dumbed down version of Overwatch, as long as I get to play it on the go. As always, tell us what you think. Do you want an Overwatch port to the Switch? Would you like the game as much with less than stellar graphics?

If you head on over to Skylanders website, you can check out their Crash Bandicoot’s Imaginators starter pack which has an option for purchasing the pack for the Nintendo Switch.

We have not received confirmation that Crash Bandicoot will indeed be available for the Switch in a bundle, but it is still listed as such on their website. After some further grueling research, I noticed the Standard edition and Dark Edition also seem to be available for the Switch. It would definitely be interesting to see if Crash will indeed be available to play on the Nintendo Switch considering Crash is a Sony character. Personally, I would love to have Crash. The more support for the Switch the better. 

You can view all of the Crash Bandicoot edition below respectively:

As always, tell us what you think. Are you excited for the new Skylanders lineup for the Switch? Which ones are you going to get?

Earlier yesterday a Best Buy in Canada accidentally released information on the Skyrim port of Nintendo Switch. There’s no telling how truthful this leak is, but it is interesting.

In the product description Best Buy announced that it will be the remastered version, and will bring “PC-like mod support to the game”. This is great news for Skyrim fans everywhere since it allow us increase the game time by literally hundreds of hours.  The “Skyrim unofficial patch” will be one of the mods I hope to see make the Switch if this rumor is true. It’s one of the most popular mods available due to being able to fix some major and minor bugs and glitches.

Personally, I’m really hoping this information comes to fruition. Skyrim is one of those games that should be on every system, and mods make the game ten times better. You can read the original page from Best Buy below. And as always tell us what you think. Is this a hoax, or will The Switch be getting some Bethesda love?

Here we are 10 days before the Nintendo Switch presentation and we are getting a rumor that Zelda Breath of the Wild will indeed be a launch title for the Nintendo Switch.

This report comes from Laura Kate Dale who originally reported Zelda Breath of the Wild would not make the Nintendo Switch launch due to delays in localization. Here is what she stated on Twitter:

 

Laura Kate seems to be pretty sure stating Zelda is “100%” going to be available at launch in the U.S. Honestly, I always believed Zelda would make it as a launch title so I can’t necessarily argue with this report. Yes, this is only a rumor at this point but we can put an end to this rumor on January 12th. What are your thoughts on this rumor? Do you think Zelda will make it as a launch title or be delayed?

As we wait for the Nintendo Switch presentation on January 12, 2017 we really do not have much to talk about except for rumors. Today we have a whole handful of rumors including the rumor that Nintendo will be no friend codes on the Nintendo Switch.

Youtube user OBE1plays was streaming when the infamous source of Nintendo Switch leaks Laura Kate Dale showed up. OBE1plays and Laura did a Skype call which was broadcasted to Youtube. The 30 minute stream consisted of both of them discussing and answering questions about the Nintendo Switch. Here is a brief round up of all the most important topics they discussed.

  • There will be NO friend codes. DeNa will be assisting with the network Nintendo has set up.
  • There is a button to record gameplay on the left Joy-con.
  • Laura stated Red Dead Redemption will most likely not come to the Nintendo Switch due to Nintendo’s relationship with Rockstar.
  • Laura also stated Overwatch may make it to the Switch but the port would have to be completely remade to work on the Switch.
  • Laura and OBE1 were asked about voice chat but they jumped around the question stating they would be covering that news shortly.
  • The Switch will have Bluetooth capabilities.
  • Joy-cons will be available for purchase separately and the docks will be as well.
  • The Pro-controller will not be available in a bundle with the Nintendo Switch.
  • The battery power will last around 3 hours with everything at maximum.
  • The Switch uses a USB charging port.
  • Only 3 GameCube Virtual Console games will be available at launch.
  • Only the gray colored Nintendo Switch will be available at launch.
  • The right Joy-con has an IR pointer similar to the Wii remote.

As always these are ALL just rumors. If you wish to watch the full Youtube video, you can check it out below:

A brand new rumor just surfaced that GameCube Virtual console will be coming to the Nintendo Switch. Not only will we be able to play GameCube titles on the Switch, but there are already several titles smoothly running and ready for release.

This report was originally released by EuroGamer and this rumor was revealed to them via 3 separate sources. Supposedly, three Nintendo titles are running efficiently. This includes: Luigi’s Mansion, Super Mario Sunshine, and Smash Bros. These are 3 of the biggest titles ever released on the GameCube which makes this rumor very exciting to say the least. To top it off, supposedly the next title in the works in Animal Crossing GameCube.

One thing to note about Animal Crossing on the GameCube is the fact that it was originally released with support for several NES titles. Currently these NES titles are rumored to running and working on the Switch virtual console. This means we could possibly emulate a NES game on a GameCube emulator on a Nintendo Switch.. wow that was a mouthful.

Another interesting piece of this rumor is that Nintendo Switch Virtual Console is being programmed by Nerd, the infamous developers of the NES Mini. So maybe we will see a full on NES virtual console at some point. Especially with how well the NES Mini has sold. If only I could have got one… yeah, I’m looking at you scalpers!

Keep in mind, this is a RUMOR. Even though it has been “confirmed” by 3 separate sources there is always a chance this may not be real. This rumor does appear to be true from everything we’ve seen leaked so far.

One theory I personally have is that we may end up getting Wave Race via Virtual console considering the recent trademark request. While this would be great, I am still hoping we get a brand new Wave Race title on the Nintendo Switch.

In regards to the GameCube virtual console, if the rumors are true, what game would you like to have released? I think of GameCube games as Pokemon.. I gotta have them all.

Maybe this whole rumored Mario Rabbids RPG isn’t so much a rumor after all. Ubisoft recently revealed Mario Rabbids characters in a video celebrating Ubisoft’s 30th anniversary.

This falls under the rumor category for a reason though. This is NOT confirmation of Mario Rabbids RPG. While displaying Mario themed Rabbids characters is a good indicator a rabbids and mario hybrid title is legit, this is only speculation. The video, spotted by a user on NEOGAF, shows a glimpse of Mario, Luigi, Toad, and several other small shaped characters. Towards the end of the video there also a set of South Park Rabbids characters being displayed. Take a look at the video below:

I think it is interesting considering this was an event celebrating 30 years of Ubisoft titles, yet Rabbids filled up most of the video. Personally I do believe this is Ubisoft’s way of teasing the Rabbids RPG title. I still won’t say it’s confirmed, but this just adds some further confirmation towards the possibility of the title being real.

IF Mario Rabbids RPG is real, I definitely see Mario Rabbids Amiibo being released. I wouldn’t be surprised to see Mario Rabbids Amiibo launch along side the game. I could definitely see myself buying a handful of Rabbids Amiibo. Toad is definitely my favorite from the ones displayed in the video.

I would like to know your thoughts on this video revealed by Ubisoft. Do you like the way the Mario characters look? Also does Mario Rabbids RPG interest you at all or do you think it would be too gimmicky? Let me know in the comments.

The old Wave Race series, which was popular on the Gamecube and the N64, may be making a comeback! A trademark was just filed for Wave Race in Europe. Can we please get Wave Race Nintendo Switch edition??

So earlier today, a trademark was filed HERE for Wave Race. Here is a screenshot below if you wish not to go to the site.
wave race nintendo switch

This could be literally mean nothing at all, BUT is it possible they are looking to bring the series to the Nintendo Switch? Honestly, it would make sense. Wave Race was very successful and we haven’t seen a new release since 2001. Nintendo did file patents for a new Wave Race back in 2009. In 2009 they planned to release Wave Race on the Wii and to take full advantage of the motion controls and balance board. We all know Wii sports Resorts had a bigger appeal though, and it included Jet Skiing.

The Nintendo Switch may be Wave Race’s opportunity to shine though. It just makes sense to make Wave Race Nintendo Switch. What are the chances of another power skiing game coming to the Nintendo Switch? Especially one that gamers would actually enjoy. I don’t think Wave Race would necessarily sell consoles for Nintendo, but I think Wave Race would sell very well. What do you all think about Wave Race possibly coming to the Nintendo Switch?

Has the Nintendo Switch price tag been leaked? Here we go again with websites and people spilling the beans before the Nintendo Switch direct on January 12. By time January 12th gets here, we will already know everything about the console at this rate.

So, back to the price leak. Earlier today, the Toys R’ Us Canadian website listed the Nintendo Switch in their directory. The Nintendo Switch was listed under the price tag of $329.00 in Canada. This equals approximately $250.00 here in the United States. There is a possibility this could just be a placeholder price so nothing is set in stone yet, but Toys R’ Us has since removed the entire listing from their website which is somewhat odd. Here is a screenshot of the post before it was removed.

I think it is interesting to note that Nintendo has previously stated they would not be selling the Nintendo Switch at a loss. If Nintendo is able to retail the Nintendo Switch at $250.00 and still cut a profit, the Nintendo Switch will be a HUGE success. Keep in mind this is all merely speculation at this point. Retail sites are known to list placeholder price tags on new products. I am unsure who originally found this information, but I can update this article if anyone knows who located this.

The rumored $250.00 price point has potential Nintendo Switch customers very excited. I personally hope this is one of the few leaks that has some truth to it. The consumer is always right, which is why the Nintendo Switch price tag will play a big role in the success of the system.

We have found yet another Nintendo Switch rumor: Super Mario Galaxy 3 is possibly in the works. Not only is Super Mario Galaxy 3 rumored to be in production, but also Super Mario Sunshine HD. This is only a RUMOR at this point, so read accordingly.

Charles Martinet, who we all know as the famous voice of Mario and various other Nintendo characters, recently updated his IMDb page.  The link takes you to the cached page which was updated on November 8, 2016 because shortly after Martinet’s page was updated, the content was  removed. So what exactly was updated on his page? The following titles were listed under game titles he has worked on:

  • Super Mario Maker Deluxe (2017)
  • Super Mario Sunshine HD (2017)
  • Super Mario Galaxy 3 (post-production, 2016)
  • Untitled Mario Golf Game for Wii U (pre-production)

Why would the information be removed shortly after being posted?

Nobody really knows. Either Martinet was told to remove the items for fear of the games being leaked, or Martinet wanted to tease us. Another big question is why would Nintendo be working on a Mario golf game for the WiiU now that they are discontinuing sales of the WiiU? This really does not make much sense.

Is it possible Super Mario Sunshine HD could be a launch title for the Nintendo Switch? It COULD happen, but there has been no other rumors suggesting this is true. Several sources have stated the Super Mario 3D showcased in the Nintendo Switch trailer is indeed a NEW mario title, so we also doubt it was footage of Super Mario Galaxy 3.

If these rumors are true, the Nintendo Switch will be making a lot of fans very happy. Potentially seeing several large and successful mario releases for the Nintendo Switch within the first year would do wonders for sales. Only time will tell at this point though. What do you all think about this rumor? What are the chances of it being legit?
