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.

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.

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?

That’s right EA sports has teased us with a Nintendo Switch big release. What exactly does this mean?

Well, earlier today Electronic Arts CFO Blake Jorgensen spoke during the UBS Global Technology conference. While speaking he teased EA’s plans for the Nintendo Switch. Jorgensen mentioned EA is working on “a game or two” for the Nintendo Switch currently. It sounds as if at least one of these titles will be ports at this point. When asked about the extent of the title, the CFO stated the following:

“We haven’t yet announced what game, but you should assume that it’s one of our bigger games.”

Jorgensen went on to say, “We’re excited for Nintendo”. It sure sounds like EA is excited considering the fact they are porting over a Nintendo Switch big release. Jorgensen also stated the following about the Nintendo Switch:

“It’s an interesting device. But I can’t yet predict how broad it’s going to be,” he stated. “Will people be interested in a portable device alongside their regular portable device that they have today?”

It sounds like EA is excited, but still somewhat hesitant to see how the market responds to the Nintendo Switch. EA only released a total of 4 games on the WiiU before giving up hope on the device. The Wii on the other hand received dozens of games from EA. EA won’t waste time with the Nintendo Switch if they know the device isn’t selling well. Let’s hope the Nintendo Switch will be a big hit and EA will provide the device with future big releases.

EA is just one of the few developers supporting the Nintendo Switch. A full list of partners can be viewed HERE. In regards to the “big” release coming to the Nintendo Switch, what game could it possibly be? Is it possible we could see Battlefield 1 on the Switch? What about Fifa 17 or maybe even Need for Speed. Let us know what you all think in the comments or on our social media pages.

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.
