We can't believe they did it again. Who at Nintendo keeps leaving these one-page lists of Nintendo Direct reveals around the place? How very silly of them. The piece of paper even says "INTERNAL USE ONLY" right there at the top!
Well, it looks like 2021 is a big year for Nintendo! The Switch Pro (which is definitely the name they'll pick for it) is, according to this leak, coming on the 23rd April , with 4K support, Bluetooth audio support, a 256GB memory, and a "Dock Pro". What could a Dock Pro be? Maybe it's just bigger than before. Or shinier. The Switch Pro will cost $399 (around £300), according to the document - that's a steal, if true. And it's definitely true.
Meanwhile, on the software side of things, we've got a whole host of much-awaited sequels: Super Mario Odyssey 2, Splatoon 3, Bayonetta 3, a new Metroid, new Kingdom Hearts, new Fire Emblem, and Mario Kart 9. It's almost like someone made a list of all the games we've been yelling about on social media for a while. How weird!
There's also a new game called "Nintendo World: Park Tour" which will presumably tie in nicely with the opening of the Super Nintendo World theme park. What would a park tour game entail, exactly? We don't know, but we really hope it's like the PC Legoland game. That game RULED.
With the new capabilities of the Switch Pro comes a bunch of beefier games that have been out for a while on other consoles: Assassin's Creed Valhalla, Watch Dogs Legion, Far Cry 6, GTAV, Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War, the Final Fantasy VII Remake, and, for no particular reason, Fallout 3: New Vegas. These games are also listed as being available on the base Nintendo Switch, but as "Cloud Versions" (aren't all versions of FF7 the "Cloud Version"?) which isn't a bad guess, considering that Control managed it pretty well. Er, did we say guess? We mean totally real thing that Nintendo is doing, for sure.
Of course, the biggest reveal is saved for last: a trailer and gameplay footage for Breath of the Wild 2, which will apparently be called "The Legend of Zelda: Echoes of the Past". We really thought it was going to be called "Smell of the Wild", but we're always happy to be proved wrong.
Now, we're not saying it's suspect that this document has no original games on it, nor are we saying it's strange that Nintendo would print a list with bad grammar ("Plant's vs Zombies"?). We're also not saying this is a little too good to be true, because sometimes Nintendo just releases every game we've been asking for all at once, right? That's definitely happened before, hasn't it?
Hmm. Maybe this list isn't real after all. We do love getting a sneak peek into upcoming Directs, but it looks like this one has just too many red flags to be trustworthy. As always with leaks, be suspicious. Be very suspicious.
We would quite like to play New Vegas on the Switch, though.
...why do they even bother? Just the very fact that the document’s in English and not Japanese instantly debunks it.
Ah yes, a single paper with every bit of private info available and the old nintendo logo just lying around. These games are also some of the most absurd and fake sounding titles too. Why did this get popular? Directs aren't set up like this and everybody knows this, in fact we probably won't have a regular direct ever again.
The amount of sarcasm here makes me happy
Would kill for Path of Radiance on Switch, as the Tellius games were the peak of the series for me. Upsetting that this is almost certainly fake. Would love to be proven wrong by a Direct though!
Very clearly fake though the most fake part about it is for sure Mario Kart 9. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe hasn't reached peak sales yet so don't expect a mainline successor until the Switch's true successor.
Switch Pro is like the Wii HD of the late '00s: aN illogical, fever dream by a Nintendo "fan" that will never make true but will keep pushing it with the absurd idea that, if you tell a lie many times it will become a reality.
The whole "leak" is a wishing list of an xboxer or sonyer that wants Nintendo games but don't want to buy a Nintendo console because that will be dumbing down or something.
I’m so excited for this first party softwar
"First Party Softwar" "Fallout 3: New Vegas"
At least make sure everything is correct if you make a fake leak
Leak provided by your father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate
Of course this is fake. But, I really hope that the next iteration of the switch is not a docked only device. That would be such a bummer for me, as I play only handheld.
Real or not I’m excited. Even if a 10th of that would come true. This is what they need to keep their foot on the neck of the industry.
It's like 'Gates of the Realm' all over again. That one turned out to be Twilight Princess. Thankfully Nintendo doesn't use such generic subtitles for Zelda games.
The biggest mistake of course is the memo is supposedly a NOE leak and the only country in the world daft enough to use the MMDDYY date format is the United States, not Europe.
@LilJ45 writing this much sarcasm in one article is dangerous
@TJC04 maybe it's meant to be "first party softWAH", brought to you by Wario
At least you had the decency to tag this as random rather than rumour
The saddest part of those fake leaks is also to assume Nintendo has the scale to produce this many games in parallel. From sources I can find it's workforce is about 3x smaller than say Ubisoft.
You can tell it’s fake because the Kingdom Hearts game has a comprehensible title.
Because since Animal Crossing Nintendo hasn’t released anything big and people want/need something. At those times we get this *****.
This is obviously so fake.
First, the guy spelled first party softwar (not software)
Second, the guy used the old nintendo logo
Third, nintendo switch pro price is 3995. IMPOSSIBLE.
Nintendo says there is no switch pro and they are focusing on the normal switch. All those games might come to nintendo switch as cloud versions but not natively.
THERE IS NO SWITCH PRO ANYTIME SOON GUYS. ADMIT IT.
we are not even in E3 season, and we have already this supicious fake leak, all this games sound more like a whish list then something Nintendo will actualy do, good trying fake Leaker i have 26 years expierence in that area.
It’s not even a good attempt. Even by the standards of these daft fantasies this is atrocious.
On the one i read in Japanese it translated as The Legend of Zelda: Age of Adventure. God bless Uncles at Nintendo.
@anoyonmus It's 399 and then a dollar sign! There's a lot of shady info in here, but at least the price isn't $4,000!
I would argue that every version of Final Fantasy 7 Remake is the "Cloud Version"
I would buy a Switch Pro for all thoses game listed and leave PlayStation and Xbox behind
I appreciate the "leaker" using red 80's Nintendo branding logo. Nintendo uses primarily white these days.
i must admit even if this Nintendo Direct is false(is problaby false), Metroid Resurgence and Legend of Zelda Echoes of the Past is a very nice name for the rumored 2D Metroid game that continues the Metroid Fusion history and Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild sequel(i liked it name).
Kingdom Hearts: Destiny's Embrace sounds like a subtitle that would make too much logical sense for a Kingdom Hearts subtitle. It's obviously fake
4chan 10 year olds really trying their hardest lol
@TheFrenchiestFry It’s obviously referring to Riku and Kairi’s rumpy-pumpy on the Destiny Islands while Sora’s stuck in the Squeenix-verse. It actually shows Nomura’s talent and how far he thinks ahead when writing his totally not made up on the spot plot.
....Meh, these names suck, I miss the E3 leak generator, those were always fun. lol
Wow, April 23 is going to be a big release day. By my count, there's about 37 games coming out that day according to this.
@nessisonett A game with that premise is probably something Nomura's unironically thought of at some point. He loves putting his "creative mark" on games like that
Oh, now I'm not usually one for these fake leak articles. But as Kate obviously had fun with this one...I'm gonna have to let this one through!
Haha. I don't even see a new Switch this year let alone a Mario Kart 9!
(I do see Jungle Beat 2 with bongos though! OK, more of a wish than a prediction!)
@KateGray Shoutout to Lego PC games of yore! This was a fun read!
Leaks aren't enough, they need to add fake ones? Also I'm sure the next Zelda will be names "Link Wilder" and will be voiced by Deadpool cosplaying as Ryan Reynolds.
Ah, this takes me back to the old BS playground talk of the 90s, back when the internet wasn't in your pocket to disprove nonsense. This list is from the same kind of mindset that tried to assure me "you definitely can ride Yoshi at the end of Mario 64, and play special bonus levels with him, and unlock a trailer for Mario 128!"
Not gonna lie, fake or not, that idea of a Switch Pro having games 'exclusive' to it but still playable on the OG Switch through Cloud support is pretty sweet since both camps will still be able to play them. I'll be getting a Switch Pro regardless but that would be pretty sweet and a good way to make a more powerful console without leaving the old users behind.
For me what gives it away is the mere thought that Splatoon 3 could possibly be announced and launched by summer this year. There's just no way (nor need) for that to happen.
But I'll give them the Zelda subtitle, "Echoes of the past" does sound awesome.
If this leak included Dark Souls 2, I would be compelled to believe in it.
But since that's missing, I can realistically say this is nonsense.
At this point, I don't care that its fake. I'm just happy I get to see the words ' Nintendo Direct'.
I wish the people who come up with these fake direct 'leaks' were better at being... grounded about things.
"with 4K support, Bluetooth audio support, a 256GB memory, and a "Dock Pro""
I'm surprised there's no mention of "enhanced OS with music, folders and themes" for good measure. Lemme guess, Joycon Pro also boasts analogue triggers and a D-pad? Kids and plebs who use single joycon multiplayer might find the latter awkward, but this console is for the pro gamers, after all.😎 And of course, all of this marvelous stuff is only 400 bucks per box!
Even by Leaks™ standards, this looks plain like someone raked through r/NintendoSwitch and printed out a wishlist summary. And even therein, they had one job: apostrophe typos are one thing (they seem to be a perennial bane of written internet communication), but since when does Fallout: New Vegas have a "3" in its name?😅
Gotta hand it to NL here - I may have just reiterated my dislike for "leaks and rumours" coverage earlier today, but I suppose this one was too priceless to pass up on. It almost reads like a hyperbolic parody of the usual junk in the category... although sadly enough, we all know the fandom is guaranteed to have at least a few folks who could produce - or believe - something like this with a straight face.
But what if this list is real?
@JokerCK you mean, including the part about all the AAAs running on "Switch Pro" but almost trollfully streamed to the other models? Then stock up on popcorn in advance because the positive feedback from millions of OG and Lite owners will be heard from here to Pluto.😉
I know this is fake because MY uncle works at Nintendo and the star game of 2021 is a new Battle Clash.
Sucks that the list is fake, but it's actually what all Nintendo fans want. Sucks that Nintendo is so out of touch with what its fans want.
I actually like the name echoes of the past....
@MagicEmperor thus begins my LEGO game propaganda on this website...
@GrailUK I did have a lot of fun, and I'm glad you can tell!
@nhSnork I did think about adding a massive "THIS IS SARCASM" disclaimer just to make sure, but I thought that would probably be insulting the intelligence of the readers! You're all smart, you know the deal here
I saw this last night and I was like “um, so who is this document for?”
It had internal use only, yet they felt the need to explain what some items are with parenthesis.
So who’s the audience? Weird. Wish it were true but fake and weird.
Real talk: call the sequel Death of the Wild.
auto fake with it mentioing mk9 and splat 3 on it.
no way they'd be on the og switch especally when they still sell. (at least mk8dx does)
Laughably fake right off the bat.
"4K TV Support".
The Switch is already supported on UHD TVs. 🤔
Also, Nintendo won't include 256GB of storage space (most people wouldn't end up using that much). That would drive up the cost WAY too much, and microSD cards are affordable enough so that people can expand the storage of the console to fit their needs.
Also, death to cloud gaming.
@AndyC_MK84 it is still too early to tell.
Nintendo also said they are focusing on the current nintendo switch. They also said there is no new model coming out.
Making a switch pro will alienate the audience because if there a switch pro exclusives, people won't be too happy and will eventually stop
@Musharna honestly if the Switch ever does get more Mario Kart content (beyond Home Tour) I think it'd arrive as an expansion pack/DLC to MK8DX.
I was missing my daily dose of sarcasm.
@Silly_G clearly the 4K TV support was trying to imply that the Switch Pro would be capable of outputting in 4K when docked and connected to a 4K TV. Still I'd doubt that claim all the same. Maybe the Switch 2 will be that powerful, but a mid gen upgrade to the Switch probably wouldn't get proper 4K support yet.
Legend of zelda breast gone wild too 🤣
Its still to early for a switch pro right now. I doubt any of these games are gonna come to nintendo switch.
Some are confirmed for the platform like Apex Legends, SMT V, and P5S. The rest is all imagination and will never happen
GTA V is possible on the nintendo switch as the game came out in 2013.
RE 2 and RE 3 remakes are possible to run natively on the switch but I doubt they will run natively because capcom has too much games planned for the next gen consoles and the switch itself
@AndyC_MK84 probably not
Remember, some games for the 3ds are marked as
"only played on new 3ds"
Ex. FE Warriors, Minecraft for New Nintendo 3ds
Technically, that is alienating the audience because you have to spend almost 300 dollars on the same platform but slightly more powerful.
If there is a switch pro, there could be some games that are like "only playable on switch pro". That is alienating the audience as they will want to spend 400 dollars on the same platform that is only a little more powerful.
Then there are others who don't want to spend more money on another console. it is alienating the audience no matter what
I want to dismiss this as garbage, but a gaming magazine I'm subscribed to (Nintendo Force) (who found out about Night Trap for Switch early) put this on the Jan/Feb '21 issue:
"Plus, a few more surprises just might be in store from the Big N shortly after this issue reaches your mailbox . . . but we're not allowed to say quite yet! Next time!"
@duffmmann : I understand that, but in real-world terms, it would make no difference as far as the presentation of games are concerned as the specs of a Switch successor would likely only be able to handle upscaling at best. I was amused by a poster for a Call of Duty game about a year ago where the fine print disclosed that the "4K" image would be upscaled. It would be like advertising a Blu-ray as being "HD" when the contents of the disc are upscaled from an old standard definition master (which has actually happened, albeit rarely).
I just see it as an unnecessary strain to bother implementing upscaling from a hardware level when UHD resolution is exactly four times 1920x1080, and the TV would essentially be upscaling HD images for its higher resolution display anyway. Upscaling made more sense for SD>HD due to the fact that SD resolutions did not scale up mathematically without having to apply other techniques to ensure that the image doesn't not appear distorted on larger displays. Such a problem does not exist between HD and UHD.
Considering that the Switch in its current state struggles with achieving 1080p for most of their AAA releases, I would rather that Nintendo tries to perfect 1080p presentation and performance with the Switch successor before attempting to move on to UHD gaming. The industry has rushed into pushing UHD in order to sell more TVs when so little content exists. Hell, most contemporary Hollywood blockbusters continue to be mastered in 2K resolution (perhaps ironically, classic films rescanned at 4K tend to benefit more by the increase in resolution).
@TeamRocket47 probably more titles that we want to see come to the platform
@Bizaster I was about to give a long explanation why it is fake and why a switch pro isn't happening anytime soon.
But then you later admitted it was fake.
The thing about these fake leaks is that they usually provide exactly what people want with no caveats whatsoever.
You are missing the point. It WILL alienate the audience if there is a switch pro.
Nintendo did that before with the 3ds. There are games that the new 3ds can handle but the old one cannot.
1. Xbox one sold terribly
2. The PS4 also launched terribly (kind of)
Thats why they made those hardware revisions
The 3DS didn't sell great. sold better than the wii u but not great.
The nintendo switch on the other hand is selling like crazy so making games exclusive to the switch pro will get some people made and will hurt nintendo badly.
Did the Wii get an upgrade version. Not really. Newer ones don't have GC backwards compatibility. But it is the same console over again.
I especially like the typo at the Switch Pro hardware part, where it talks about "DLLS" instead of "DLSS".
If people believe that Bill Gates is the devil and that 5G is an all knowing god then somebody will believe this.
And its called Dragon Breath of the Wild 2
AND WHAT ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO DON'T WANT TO UPGRADE.
WHAT IF NINTENDO DECIDED TO DO THE SAME THING WITH THE 3DS. MAKE SOME GAMES EXCLUSIVE TO THE SWITCH PRO.
YES THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WANTING A SWITCH PRO. BUT THERE ARE PEOPLE THAT DON'T WANT TO UPGRADE.
ALSO NINTENDO DOESN'T MAKE POWERFUL CONSOLES. SO MOST LIKELY A NEW NINTENDO SWITCH WON'T BE ANY DIFFERENT.
IT WILL LOOK A LITTLE BIT BETTER, RUN A LITTLE BIT BETTER , A BIGGER DISPLAY, AND THATS IT
@Silly_G I dunno, the Xbone X was capable of outputting in 4K even though the base Xbone wasn't able to, and then games that could detect if it was on the new hardware and download patches to output in 4K if capable and devs implemented 4K support via such patches. I think in theory such a thing is possible, but of course, I'm not personally counting on it.
nintendo did that before. A switch pro might have some games that the normal switch won't run. that wouldn't be exactly be fair would it.
First party titles will be 50-50 chance to be switch pro exclusive but 3rd party titles are
Also switch pro is a dumb name. I feel like it would copy sony and their ps4 pro.
It should be called NEW Nintendo Switch.
Hopefully Nintendo decided not to make some games exclusive to the NEW nintendo switch.
all the new 3ds had was a c-stick and a bigger display and thats it.
It wasn't more powerful, it just has a bigger display
Stop taking about ps4 and xbox one.
Both are built similarly so thats why 3rd party games run and look the same on both consoles.
Sony and Microsoft are competing against each other. Nintendo isn't.
Also you proved my point that nintendo can do the same thing to the NEW nintendo switch just like the new 3ds.
I have no idea why nintendo decided to make some games exclusive to the new 3ds but thats just dumb.
The new 3ds is basically a 3ds with a c-stick and a bigger screen. Thats it
NEW nintendo switch should be a good name. carry on the tradition new 3ds.
Ok so the new 3ds is more powerful.
But some games are only playable on that handheld.
Also, is new nintendo 3ds sound stupid? no
I wouldn't say loads. Only some.
Also I never said a switch pro won't happen.
I only meant that we won't see it soon. Maybe 2022 or very late 2021 it will come out.
WHO cares about the name. As long as it has games and is good enough, its fine
first of all
we don't know even if there is gonna be an upgraded switch coming soon.
We don't know if nintendo will decide to make some games only playable on the supposedly switch pro.
Also, We don't even if the upgraded switch will be called switch pro.
Say there is a switch pro.
But heres the thing. Will nintendo do the same thing with the new 3ds with having some games only playable on the upgraded switch.
Also we don't know if it is called a switch pro
As I said.
I never said that a switch pro won't happen.
I am saying it won't happen this early as the document said.
What I find dumb is that the document said the switch pro will have native 3rd party games while the base nintendo switch will have cloud versions. Thats dumb.
The PS4 pro came out in november, so maybe we could see the switch pro come out november 2021
At least contact porting studios to get the job done.
How is this news? 😂
I am guessing that if there is a switch pro, a reveal of it won't happen this soon. Maybe in the summer it will happen.
If there is a switch pro, I think and I hope that it will come on november 2021 for the holiday sale.
ok if u are right which u might be.
But we can both agree that the switch pro or whatever name it is WILL be coming out in 2021.
But can we talk about how the switch pro will get native ports of 3rd party games and the base nintendo switch will get cloud versions of the 3rd party games. I think thats dumb
The base nintendo switch should be able to run the 3rd party ports natively that the switch pro will have but at a lower resolution and lower framerate.
NGL. Some of the games on the list are actually confirmed for the switch
Of all the titles here, the one that stands out the most that this is a prank to me is Fall Guys... The dev isn't known for porting old software. Problem solved.
I feel most of the games are not happening to the switch.
PVZ is running on frostbite which can't run on switch.
Also its EA, so expect them to release inferior ports of many games
you are right. Ik its fake by looking at logo and "softwar".
Some of the games are confirmed for the nintendo switch.
The date 1/11/2021 might be true for a nintendo direct of some sort but I doubt any of the games on the list will be announced.
@DK-Fan wasn't the Wii HD the Wii U?
The base nintendo switch can almost run any game that is on ps4 right. Only some games cannot run at all. Give it to a porting studio and they will get the job done.
Imagine cyberpunk 2077 gets ported to the base nintendo switch and then enchanced for the switch pro or something and it looks better than it is on ps4 and xbox one.
All the info on the leak is fake. That person made it up himself
No. Wii u is a completely different console
this is fake
It's fun to throw around wild predictions and imagine what could be...
But don't tell lies and make people believe it's real, that's just mean.
only people on twitter are believing the leak.
The date of the direct might be true. The switch pro might be real but its not coming out in April. Maybe in the summer or fall.
Everything else is all fake
you are right. cyberpunk is too much for the switch. Get it on pc or stadia as it runs good on both of the platforms
How about the first 2 witcher games on the switch. We should have all 3.
Also, do you think RE 2 and RE 3 remakes and RE 7 are possible to run on nintendo switch natively. I think they are possible but capcom is too busy to port it natively.
RE Village is a long shot, unfortunately . Its only for next gen consoles.
There are rumors of it coming to ps4 and xbox one and google stadia though.
maybe its like an excuse for "its not built for switch in mind"
or maybe capcom is too busy to port it as they have RE Village, MH Rise, and many other games coming out
Revelations 2 was built for the home consoles in mind and yet that game is on switch.
@AndyC_MK84 its ok. Everyone will be like that at some point. I am sorry too.
Its a comparison video on ps4 graphics vs ps4 pro
First Party Softwar
@bagajr love how they spell softwar on the first party but in the third party they say software
Kingdom Hearts: Destiny's Embrace is a far too sensible and coherent title to be a real Kingdom Hearts game.
399$ haha. I can only image this was all written in a frenzy after 8 glasses of wine
This leak is so fake it’s funny lol. Far cry 6 and Assassins creed Valhalla being on a handheld? You would have a pool of melted plastic after an hour. Even if the “SwItCh PrO” is real, neither of those games could run on it, and I don’t even think far cry six gameplay has been shown yet. Now let me rage about the first party games on this list. In no parallel universe would Nintendo release a new splatoon, mariokart, 3D Mario game, legend of Zelda, and Metroid, all in one year. This is a wishlist and nothing else, so if you believe this I am sorry for you.
Wow, a switch for only 39 dollars!? MY grandmother thinks switch is overpriced
How dare they tease us about a new Nintendoland that will never happen. That one hurt lol
This is probably fake, but it would be so great if this were to actually happen. A man can only dream...
Horrible thing is, if the Switch era was to the same standard as the Wii era, all this would 100% happen
Someone forgot to leak an 'e' it would seem.
I know an uncle who work for Nintendo and he confirms that a lot of these are ryo.
Is this news? Its so obviously fake it shouldn't be on this site.
This story does not really speak well for media. "Let's pretend we take a report seriously until the end. Because click bait.
I wonder why people do this? Do they think that making this stuff will magically come into existence?
What’s the point?
I know it's fake. I know for a fact Nintendo has something planned for 35th Zelda Anniversary. This faker forgot all about it.
@Alpha008 For attention, of course. Your own special 5 minutes of fame.
@RustedHero So what does that make us?
The word "echo" has been overused, please let it go.
@FluffiestP1llow people will have seen this floating around on social media and other sites so we feel a duty to debunk it so that people aren’t mislead.
@BadWaluigi2 Not sure what you mean, it literally says it’s fake in the headline. There is no click bait here at all.
As likely to be fake as this is, this article was poisonous to read through. "...And, for no particular reason, Fallout 3: New Vegas" (the title is simply "Fallout: New Vegas," mind you, easy mistake, though I'm sure it was intentional in the rumor). Yes, one of many games people have been asking for on Switch for several years now, what an outlier. The tone is ignorant, snarky, and atrocious.
Most likely fake but echoes of the past does sound like what breath of the wild two could be called seeing as they have been apparently been focusing on the past lately ever since the first game and also ever since they dropped the trailer for the second game too although I'm still gonna take it with a grain of salt
@Menardi I think you've misread the meaning of that. The fact that Fallout 3: New Vegas is seemingly included at random serves to highlight that this is made-up. It's not a dig at the game.
Echoes of the past is too common a title to use!
It’s the name of the main quest in Witcher 3 wild hunt Expansion
It’s the name of a game released in 2009
It’s the sub quest in many a game.
Nintendo would avoid all these clashes as it would want a clean title not previously used by anyone!
@Damo Right, and I just explained why its inclusion is not random in the slightest due to the fact it is one of the most acclaimed games of the past decade, its decent likelihood to perform technically well on and adapt pleasingly to the Switch, and the fact it is a game players actually want (and have for some time — why it has yet to be ported is a question best asked of Bethesda, which would make for a far more informative article than this one, with all due respect). Its inclusion would have the opposite effect of what you are describing, though the rumor is assuredly false for other reasons. If it were Qbert or a Switch port of Mary Kate & Ashley Sweet Sixteen: License To Drive from the GameCube, then yes, this would be a random game. One of the most beloved RPGs of the 2010s from a developer who have so far been very generous in supporting the Switch with everything from Smash Bros. content to releases new and old (Doom Eternal, Skyrim — which runs on the same engine as New Vegas, if I am not mistaken. A game, mind you, that was developed by Obsidian Games, who later produced a spiritual successor in Outer Worlds, which was coincidentally also ported to the Switch) appearing on a rumored list of upcoming games does not fit this "random" description, nor does its presence on this list make it any less believable or more outlandish than it already is. More desireable, certainly.
"Ubisoft: Assassin's Creed Valhalla
Only available natively on Nintendo Switch Pro / Cloud Version available on base Nintendo Switch"
Let's be real for a moment here, guys. Bonkers as it is, this made-up rumor nailed this scenario with frightening accuracy.
@Menardi Again, I think you're missing the point here. No one is disputing that Fallout New Vegas isn't good, but its inclusion here is totally and utterly random.
"Echoes of the Past" Its sounds like a good name though
@NovaCam Absolutely nothing!
@AndyC_MK84 I know
Leaks?, Rumors?, whatever, but, this is more a frustrating fan wish list; Mario Odyssey 2?, soon?, Mario kart 9?, GTA 5?; it's probably that they arrived in any moment, but no in this year (or April's) .
Really, is it deserved to keep any interest for something like this?
Really, is better to wait official sources and official news, No to "1 penny" gossips...
Why even devote an article to something that looks like it was put together by a twelve year old fan?
The games are fake, thats all we know.
Yesterday, me and @AndyC_MK84 were talking about the supposedly named switch pro.
More than likely, the switch pro will have games that will also run on the base nintendo switch and nintendo switch lite.
If they do that, audience won't be alienated.
Switch pro might come out during the summer but if it is true then it is 2021 for now.
@Damo I suppose I will have to respectfully disagree. It's a game that has frequently appeared on similar rumors over the years, it's really more of a staple fan want than a random "so fake" entry.
@AndyC_MK84 oh well. At least you said it ahead of time.
You gonna get the MH Rise Demo.
I am gonna download it tomorrow. I have to do something today and I need to charge my nintendo switch
This is literally a "what if Nintendo actually cared about their customers" parallel universe Direct leak. I literally read the list of games and thought, "based on Nintendos past 2 years of output, this is about a decade worth of quality that is supposed to be coming out in the next year". Not a popsicle.
@DK-Fan But the "Wii HD" ended up being real tho...
Call me cynical, but I would expect an “internal memo” to have the correct Nintendo logo, and not have so many spelling mistakes. “Softwar”.
Why nonsense like this gets any coverage is beyond me
Not much different than any other rumor covered by nintendolife.
I'm honest about my predictions being predictions and they look like more realistic leaks than that.
Speaking about "Switch Pro" rumours, I think it may be smarter for Nintendo to release a Home Console/Pro Dock with USB 4.0 and Thunderbolt 3/4 that enables the original Switch to fast charge and provide 4k graphics packs on a 1 or 2TB SSD.
I don't think they will alienate their customers that way and it can lead into everything they have been working towards.
A Pro is unnecessary at this point.
But two more years and we can see one happening with similar specs as this Home Console/dock.
The two can then work in tandem to each other and become a "next-gen" Switch.
Then repeat the process every 4 years with 2-year incremental upgrades in between like the OG Switch being updated with the better battery version.
Obviously fake, Softwar is missing a letter
But Bayonetta 3's release date is possible for Summer though
Just give me Splatoon 3. I'm ready to give up my life.
I doubt a switch pro would be revealed in this supposed nintendo direct. Seems too early right now.
I am guessing the switch pro will come out in the summer
@Vsaxo27 well if we want a nintendo switch system to be made that can run 4k(there wont be) it needs to be docked. do you realize how big the xbox series x and ps5 are and how much hardware is needed? it completely impossible for nintendo to make a 4k portable system, and its improbable that nintendo will release a 4k console. as they always release next gen hardware a few years after sony and microsoft. so its safe to say nintendo wont be doing anything with new hard ware until a few more years down the line. but if i'm wrong then this post will go perfectly in r/agedlikemilk.
@SNES64DD yeah i docked addon for the switch so it can run 4k makes more sense as they still probably want to keep the switch portable, because that's the entire selling point of the switch
I agree. Don't know why people think there will be portable 4K. Docked maybe, since there was an article about a chip that renders 4K through post processing. But not portable.
@antdickens they changed the headline lmao. Must've seen my comment. Did not say that in the title the day I commented 🤷🏻♂️
