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!

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.

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.

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.

RUMOR - Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle running on the Snowdrop engine

A rumor on a rumored game. We know how silly that sounds, but the sources out there backing up the Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle rumor are, in my eyes, credible enough to believe.

With that said, we're also hearing multiple reports (outside of AND including the video above) that Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle will be using Ubisoft's Snowdrop engine. That's worth noting, as both The Division and South Park: The Fractured but Whole use the same engine. If this rumor is true, it's great news to hear Ubisoft has gotten one of their major engines up-and-running on Switch.

RUMOR - New wave of info on the supposed Mario/Rabbids mash-up game for Switch

The following comes from Emily Rogers...

- titled Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle
- eight playable characters
- includes Mario, Luigi, Peach, Yoshi and others
- each character has their own sci-fi weapon, such as laser guns, arm cannons and more
- characters aren’t controlled directly, but are instead controlled through something called a Tuttorio
- a Tuttorio is a small floating dish which guides the characters through the world
- will feature co-op multiplayer

Dan Adelman frustrated with Nintendo over Axiom Verge Switch situation, vents on Twitter

Dan Adelman used to work for Nintendo, heading up their digital efforts. He's since moved on to other projects, and has been very closely tied to Axiom Verge. He was crucial in bringing the game to various platforms, Wii U included. Adelman and Axiom Verge dev Tom Happ have both said they want to bring the game to Switch, but nothing is official right now.

According to some tweets from Adelman, Axiom Verge could have been ready to go for Switch launch. That's evident from his tweet below.


Now here's where the situation gets a little messy. There's an image floating around out there of a Tweet from Adelman. The tweet says that he's been trying to talk to Nintendo about Axiom Verge hitting Switch for over a year now. Furthermore, the image shows Adelman calling Nintendo "douches". Now I don't know if that tweet was removed, but for the life of me, I cannot find that final tweet. I've come at it from every direction, and I can't even find any proof of it existing. I don't know if the last tweet was faked or just deleted quickly.

Here's what we do know. Adelman and Happ want Axiom Verge on Switch, but it hasn't happened yet. There's no doubt the pair have been in contact with Nintendo about the title. It would seem pretty obvious at this point that they're having trouble making the game happen, and it's not from a lack of trying.
