RUMOR - Artwork from the Mario x Rabbids game (UPDATE)


The Mario X Rabbids rumor continues on, this time with a bit of artwork that is supposedly from the game. There's been lots of talk of the game being the real deal, but today is the first time we're seeing a supposed piece of art for it. What do you think, real or fake? Thanks to FangztheWolf, NicoDarunia and Nextlevelgod for the heads up!

UPDATE - Supposed full image and more details leaked from NWR.

- RPG that mixes exploration and turn-based combat
- exploration is estimated at 35% of the game with combat making up 65%
- each of the four worlds are "twisted" Mario worlds filled with references
- combat is weapon-based as Mario and company can use guns for the first time
- 8 different characters can be used: Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi, and Rabbids dressed up as each of them
- combat is more tactical, more akin to a strategy RPG
- can be played in co-op for two players
- Ubisoft appears to be publishing this game
- about 20 hours long

RUMOR - Could Beenox be working on Call of Duty: WWII for Switch?


Beenox, a company behind multiple titles on Nintendo platforms, is currently posting about Call of Duty on their Twitter account. The thing is, the company doesn't seem to be tied to Call of Duty: WWII, the upcoming Call of Duty game for Xbox One/PS4/PC. Beenox's most recent work includes Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered and the last-gen ports of Call of Duty: Black Ops III. If Beenox is involved in the latest Call of Duty title, it would certainly seem like a Switch outing makes the most sense.

RUMOR - A detailed breakdown of what devs/pubs pay to get a Switch game released physically (UPDATE)

UPDATE - Daniel Ahmad, an analyst at Niko Partners, chimed in to say that he believes the Switch and PS4 are incorrect.

- the price devs/pubs have to pay for physical Switch games is around $8 US dollars per unit
- one unit is the case and game card
- PS4 games are about $5 dollars per unit
- minimum number of units the publisher/developer is required to purchase is 6,000
- the 6,000 units are just for one region
- there are special guidelines that need to be passed, QA checks and the signing of a Distribution of Physical Goods form,
- devs/pubs make less reveue due to the costs of manufacturing and distribution
- this is why retail games need to be sold at a higher price

Pokemon Stars rumor gets a bit more fuel (UPDATE)



Is Pokemon Stars the real deal or not? We don't know just yet, but today's evidence certainly seems quite interesting. If this is indeed the real deal, you can bet the info is going to be revealed at E3! Thanks to Jacob for the heads up!

UPDATE - Seems like this might be a coincidence. Turns out any word that ends with the letter 'I' will do the same redirectl.

More evidence of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga DX being real


Still on the fence about the leak of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga being real? Here's some pretty strong evidence for it. Press got hands-on time with Ever Oasis this week, which means they got to see the icon for the game. Turns out the icon provided by the leaker above was spot-on for the real deal. If that icon was real, it would certainly lend credibility to the other one being legitimate as well.

RUMOR - Another round of info on Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

The following info comes from Kotaku

- Kotaku has seen assets
- due out either August or September
- turn-based combat
- two-player local co-op
- goofy sense of humor.
- assets show Mario and crew wielding laser guns
- playable characters include Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, Peach, and, four Rabbids dressed up as Mario, Luigi, Yoshi, and Peach

RUMOR - Is there a Nintendo Direct coming next week?

Nothing escapes the ever-watchful eye of internet sleuths. Today we have some interesting info from the NeoGAF gang that could very well point to a Nintendo Direct as early as next week

- on the Japanese Nintendo Direct page, a slot opened up about a week before the last direct aired
- apparently this is part of a pattern, and has been happening with other Directs
- today, another slot opened up in the same manner on the Nintendo Direct page

Like the info says, this is a pattern that seems to have been pretty much proven at this point. When a slot opens up, a Direct is soon to follow. Let's see if the sleuths have made an accurate prediction!

Rumored Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga remake for 3DS gets a name change

Nintendo isn't going to confirm/deny the rumor of Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga coming to 3DS. All we have to go on right now is the info the hacker is releasing. Going along with the game reveal and icon from earlier today, the same hacker has shown that the full name for the title is Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga + Bowser's Minions. We have no idea what the name points to, but it seems like it would be new content in some shape or form.

RUMOR - Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga DX game icon data found on eShop server


Yes, it's the same hacker that found the game to begin with. Now he's shared the icon for the game, as well as the icon for Ever Oasis. I think the evidence speaks for itself, but nothing is confirmed until Nintendo officially reveals it.
