RUMOR - New ARMS content coming later today, tomorrow



I know Andre super well and trust his info 100%. I'm just marking rumor because we don't have official confirmation from Nintendo!

RUMOR - Multiple sources say Xenoblade Chronicles 2 still on for 2017

We have had quite a number of sources reach out to us about Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Following up on our GameStop information, these sources say they can confirm that the game is still slated for a 2017 release. Since we shared the GameStop inside info and said it was subject to change, I thought it the right thing to do to update you guys on this new round of info. To be clear, the info on Xenoblade Chronicles 2 still being on for 2017 comes from multiple people, none of them the same as my GameStop source.

RUMOR - Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle potential amiibo leaked

The last bit of inside information on Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle told us that there could potentially be a line of amiibo in the works, or at the very least, some sort of figurines. Now an image of those figures has surfaced. The image has confidential watermarking on it, so we won't be sharing here. If you want to see the image, you can click the source link. Thanks to Rigoberto and FangztheWolffor the heads up!

RUMOR - Images for Super Smash Bros. Switch surface (UPDATE)

More here

A long time back, we had heard rumors of Smash Bros. Wii U/3DS getting a port to Switch with some new content. Today, a round of supposedly leaked screens has surfaced from that project. As we inch closer to E3 2017, could these images be the real deal, or are they nothing more than the work of someone trying to stir up the Nintendo community? Thanks to FangztheWolf for the heads up!

RUMOR - Retailer listing points to Pokken Tournament port for Switch

Looks like Pokken Tournament has a shot at releasing on Switch. Japanese retailer Sinobi had posted a listing for an arcade stick for Switch, with the listing stating that the stick could be used for games like Pokken Tournament. The listing has now disappeared completely. Was it a listing in error, or was it a leak?

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.
