It’s a day for Nintendo leaks, it seems, and all of them coming from a single source, funnily enough. Known Nintendo insider Zippo recently published a blog update, in which they spoke about a number of potential upcoming Switch announcements, including a new Mario Kart, a new Donkey Kong game, and the Breath of the Wild sequel’s launch. In addition to that, the leaker also spoke about several other unannounced Switch games.

Rumours of a new 2D Metroid game have been around for some time now, and Zippo says that this is definitely happening. Developed by MercurySteam, the insider says this game “two hundred percent exists”, and apparently, it’s already wrapped up development. Nintendo and Metroid boss Yoshio Sakamoto are apparently very happy with how the game has turned out, and the game will apparently run at a “very smooth” 60 FPS. An announcement at E3 seems likely, the report claims.

Meanwhile, Nintendo has more plans for Mario Party as well, it seems. Super Mario Party is the highest selling game in the series, at over 14.7 million copies sold, and recently also received a substantial online update, nearly three years on from its launch. Zippo writes that Super Mario Party 2 is probably going to be announced at E3 next month, and will be ready for a late 2021 launch.

It should go without saying, but all of this is unverified information, so treat it as such. Zippo has been on the money with several Nintendo leaks in the past, but has been inaccurate at times as well, and Nintendo in particular is notoriously secretive and unpredictable- so nothing is set in stone. Either way, it looks like we’ll know for sure one way or another with all of this stuff, so stay tuned.
