Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Platinum’s Arms and more named.
The Nintendo Switch is set to be shown off today and we’re likely to learn more about its price, launch line-up and other essential details. However, a recent leak from 4Chan (via Shacknews) might indicate some of the games coming after all.
The source is someone involved in the European Switch event who noted that Super Mario Odyssey (a brand new game with what seems to be flying), SnipperClips, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, Super Bomberman R, Arms (a new game from Platinum Games), Splatoon 2 and Ultra Street Fighter 2: The Final Challengers among other titles.
It should be noted that as bizarre as the list sounds, there may be something valid in it. Indie dev Dan Teasdale noted on Twitter that, “As much as that 4chan leak looks like the fakest garbage, the domains are registered by Nintendo’s domain holding company/fits their timing.”
Sure enough, there are domains for superiomarioodyssey.com and snipperclips.com registered by CSC Corporate Domains (who also registered nintendoswitch.com) on January 12th. Insider Emily Rogers has already noted the existence of a Mario Kart 8 port with 16 new tracks. The part about a rumoured Wii U port turning out to be a sequel could be referencing Splatoon 2.
Again, take this for what you will (and it should be with massive grains of salt) but Nintendo apparently has quite the presentation. Stay tuned for more details in the coming hours.
