Laura Dale of Let’s Play Video Games has been among the most consistent reliable and accurate sources of Switch news and rumors so far- just about everything that she has said has turned out to be true. So when she decides to chime in on the news and speculation that has been floating around about the launch lineup for the Nintendo Switch, we decide to sit up and take notice.

Dale has confirmed that Zelda will indeed be delayed, for Wii U and the Switch- in spite of the fact that the game will not now launch until months into the Switch’s life, by which point the Wii U will be well and truly dead, Nintendo still does intend to release the Wii U version. The Switch, according to Dale, will be launching with the new 3D Mario game that Nintendo showed off briefly during the Switch reveal video, which she confirms will be a return to the Mario 64 style of gameplay, with a massive open hub world, and multiple objectives per level.

The Switch will also be launching with The Elder Scrolls Skyrim: Special Edition, the remastered version of the game. The Switch version of the game will be getting mod support added to it post launch, a bit like the PS4 version of the game- and the extent of mods supported on the Switch will also be similar to the PS4 version of the game.

Dale also confirmed that the Switch will come bundled with a new Splatoon game- more single player content will be added to the game this time around, and the 1v1 mode will get more attention bestowed on it too. The Switch version of the game will also be supported with free content post launch, similar to Splatoon‘s excellent support on the Wii U.

But we’re not done yet- according to Emily Rogers, who is one of the most well known Nintendo insiders there is, Nintendo are also working on getting Mario Kart out for Switch within three months of its release. The Switch Mario Kart game will be a reworked Mario Kart 8, and feature ons of exclusive content including brand new tracks, new playable characters, and a new-and-improved battle mode- the latter of those being especially exciting, because the battle mode was the one area where Mario Kart 8, an otherwise excellent game, faltered.
