This comes from the same rumour that said BotW would get delayed and miss launch, that Splatoon 2 was a port of the first one, and from people who said Super Mario Odyssey and Mario Kart 8 DX were fake leaks.

In other words, I'm 99% certain this is BS.

I'll be all over this game as long as gets a physical release.

Sounds almost too detailed too be fake. Especially the "tuttorio" thing.
Either way, color me interested!

Sadly, the "tuttorio" sounds exactly something Nintendo would name.

This sounds terrible. Hope this rumor is false. There's so many great things that could be crossed over with Mario and yet they choose Rabbids?!

Oh goodie! I'm just going to forget this thing exists.

Explain this then:

Why would that be in Ubisoft's 30th anniversary vid?

Because Ubisoft liked painted rabbid figures?
I too, loved playing as Ezio in Rayman Legends

The point is that all, and I mean all that was in the same rumour as Rabbids Mario was BS including:

Spoiler

Pretty accurate isn't it? I don't trust any rumour that pretty much says "I have a source whose dad works at Nintendo"

.......How does the Ezio figure relate to this? Even if you couldn't play as Ezio in Rayman Legends, Assassin's Creed is own by them. Why would they have rabbid figures of Mario, Luigi and Toad on display for a 30th anniversary vid when they don't own Mario and have never used those rabbid designs for any of their games that appeared on Nintendo consoles? Nintendo wouldn't just allow them to make those figures without a reason.

Is fine to not believe the rumors, because like you pointed out there is a lot of rumors that did not come true from the same source. However, there are different people besides Emily (for example Andre from GameXplain) that have said we will see this game at E3.

No one reported on the rumour before Laura Dale who has a pretty bad track record when it comes to these sorts of things. (i.e. making up 90% of all the Switch leaks, or getting plain out inaccurate info from her "sources")
Could be a The Boy Cried Wolf scenario but I highly, highly doubt it.

Links to all her other "leaks"

EDIT: It seems she got accurate info of what the console looked like and the reveal trailer, but everything after that has been consistently proven wrong http://letsplayvideogames.com/2017/01/a-deep-dive-on-lpvgs-nintendo-switch-reports-and-info/

You mean the person who also leaked Paper Mario for Wii U and literally the entire Switch design, stats & various other things about it to the core? And made a vague reference to Bomberman & Arms for Switch before they were announced?

And what on earth are you talking about with saying Odyssey or MK8DX were fake? When did she ever say that? Or do you mean when NINTENDO said they were not real games?

The Splatoon report was also old as hell and honestly, nearly everyone clearly thought it was a port.

But you know, don't look at any of the times she was right, just the times she was wrong.

The whole Rabbids thing originated from an article by Laura Dale, and the "people" I was referring to were Laura and Liam Robertson. Emily digging up this rumour again doesn't mean a lot when pretty much everything Laura Dale predicted post-Switch Reveal ended up being complete nonsense.

The details have been questionable, but almost everyone has came to the conclusion the mash-up with Rabbids is a thing that exists in some level.

Color me curious.... whatever that color is.

i was initially interested in the idea but laser guns with mario dont match for me

Yeah, this sounds pretty bad. Could be wrong!

sounds pretty lame to be honest

I honestly doubt Nintendo would waterdown the Mario Brand by pairing them with Rabbids of all cretans.

I don't believe this because of that pairing and because of the "source" - I'm sorry but I've read so many reports from this person that have been blatantly false since before the Wii U. I have no reason to trust that source. Especially since they do not own up to false rumours and reports when the truth comes out.

She isn't the only one who reported the Rabbids crossover. Even Ubisoft teased the idea in a couple of tweets.

Seriously? She is still a thing? After she was pretty much wrong on everything Switch (And, no! What was official from patents and other sources do not count).

Seems to be a thing with many of these so-called leakers.
"They got one rumour right, so we better report anything they say from now on just to be sure"
It's so frustrating to see many of these sourceless rumours get posted all the time everywhere, not just on GN.

Let's keep our salt ready!

I am already pure sodium ;)

You're lying. This is what she summed up before the announcement of Switch. And it's 100% accurate. So why are you lying?

Custom Nvidia GPU chip
Region Free (No region lock)
Six inch (6.2 inch?) multi-touch screen (Heard nothing about a stylus)
The touchscreen has 720p resolution.
32GB of built-in internal storage
SD card support
Supports USB 2.0 and 3.0
The dock has two 2.0 usb ports and one 3.0 usb port.
The portable device is around 14 – 15 mm in thickness.
The right analogue stick (or circle pad?) will be below the face buttons.
Camera and microphone are not built into/inside the NX portable device.
Cooling is still a little noisy
Detachable controllers (motion controls and next-gen vibration technology) <– Everything Laura Kate Dale said in her article was correct.
Share / Social button that Laura Kate Dale posted is true.
There are *at least* two shoulder buttons.
Battery Life — Ehhh not great. I haven’t heard an exact number of hours, but it doesn’t sound great.
Below PS4 and XB1 in raw power.
Supports Unreal Engine 4 and Unity Engine.

Calling people who do not agree with you for "liers" is just low, man. Get over yourself.

The detachable controllers were a part of the patent. We all knew Nvidia was working with Nintendo. Nice guess it was custom as usual.

You're grasping here... SD card support? USB 2 and 3? "There are *at least* two shoulder buttons. "? Seriously? What about your argument: "Below PS4 and XB1 in raw power. ". This is all obvious. It's like you are secretly in love with her and will do anything to protect her. Remember how Zelda Breath of the Wild was NOT coming to Switch launch? ;)

it's "liar" not "lier" and the fact you misspelled it that way makes it seem like you are trolling. The only person that needs to get over themselves is you. You're over playing another person's thoughts and intentions on the matter as something more than what they are simply doing. However you seem to come in here all the time only when Emily rogers is mentioned and make a huge stink.

It's a known fact that there's animosity towards women journalist in gaming right now, we don't need any more of this kind of faithless questioning. It's also a known fact Nintendo pads their employees with falsehoods on certain levels to throw people off rumors and to find out anyone who may be suspect. The Pokemon Sun & Moon riddler leaker comes specifically to mind as he mention this before and he was mearly an artist working on the anime.

If Emily Rogers was 100% accurate all the time, people would be suspicious and jobs would be in jeopardy. I'd rather have false hoods here and there with some confirmation and every employee happy than heads rolling, but to each their own I guess.

You know, for someone who likes accuracy in their sources so much, you seem to miss the gravity of working under contracts with NDAs.

What the Hell is wrong with you? I was stating a point and saying why I do NOT trust Rogers. Has nothing to do with sexism! Why use buzz-words like that to "win" an argument?

And I do NOT come here on when " However you seem to come in here all the time only when Emily rogers is mentioned and make a huge stink.". That is a lie (oh, I mispelled a word, my bad).

A lot of her "rumours" were either obvious (weaker than PS4/XO, uses USB 2/3 etc) or just something she got from patents, like detachable controllers (being a hybrid, that was also cmmon sense, really). Zelda came to launch , which was also an obvious move. She has also deleted several accounts when she was straight out wrong from what I heard. Also she sometimes jumps on others' rumours and use them as her own.

She might have some sources, but not as good as you would like her to have. Guess we will have to wait for E3 (or another event/Direct) and see for ourselves.

And thank you for correcting my grammar. I actually knew how to spell it, but made a boo-boo.

It has nothing with hate to do, rather that I do not believe everything I read on the net to do.

I might not have been clear on that.

English is not my native language though. That might be a problem. But I do like it when people correct my grammar. I learn.

Same thing here. I don't have hate but rather I'm very skeptic for most unsourced rumours.
To many people, especially on the internet you become an enemy the moment you disagree with them though.

Oh I have many new enemies now it seems. Oh well, such is life. =)

Lying. Saying something that is not true. Has nothing to do with agreeing. I presented you with a list that is 100% correct, and still you're trying to spin it into not being true. What part of evidence do you not understand?

Remember how Zelda Breath of the Wild was NOT coming to Switch launch?

Yes, I do. And I just presented you with a very solid list of things that ARE true. But that somehow doesn't count. So can I say that your little statement doesn't count either? Is that how it works? Or are you the only one who has the supreme power of deciding what is and isn't true?

Also...

It's like you are secretly in love with her and will do anything to protect her.

This statement makes it even more clear that the problem here is simply that most of you are simply children or manchildren. The "problem" with Emily Rogers is clearly about butthurt 16 year old males who simply can't stand a girl having inside connections to Nintendo.

Look at how much effort you people are putting into this. You're actually putting so much effort into discrediting her. Why, if you do not agree, and it doesn't hurt anyone, would you put so much effort into her?

Just look at the comments man, look at how many people feel the need to take jab at Rogers who's names you've never seen pop up on this website because they never comment on anything. But when they see Emily Rogers, they dig out their accounts, probably go through the trouble of refreshing their passwords just so they can join the circlejerk that is hating Emily Rogers.

Look at how these people enjoy repeating one and other in the comments, saying the exact same thing over and over and over. Stuff I've never seen happen with Serkan Toto or Liam Robertson. Look at the amount of replies for god's sake. If you do not see a problem here, you're part of it.

And yes, I am putting effort into this. Because again I see how disgusting the gaming community can be. It saddens me deeply to see how backwards and insecure the gaming crowd is.

You really have me misunderstood. I do not hate her, but I do not trust her either. So many of her rumours were spot on WRONG! And things like Switch being bellow PS4/XO levels or uses USB2/3 are just common sense.

Stop protecting her like a fanboy and just look at the facts.

Stating the obvious as fact is not an argument.

OK... One more time.

-We knew that it's a hybrid. From patents, but it was obvious that when they put together the handheld and home console divisions that it would happen, but the patents are enough.

-Detachable controllers... yeah...Patent again.

-It comes with USB2/3. Yeah. Standard.

-Weaker than the PS4/XO. It's Iwata's legacy, so it was not a big surprise really. (Not that it's bad, I love my Switch and it's games)

-Customized Nvidia chip. Again, no surprises. We knew all along after the official statement that Nvidia and Ninty were working together. That the chips is (somewhat) custom should not come as a surprise this time either.

-She was saying that Zelda would be delayed, but after the advertizing of both the Switch AND Zedla she suddenly said it will come to launch. Again freaking obvious that it would hit launch, not summer,.

-"It uses Unreal 4 and Unity engions!" Do you think the people at Nintendo are retarded? What new gaming platform, in this time of gaming, would NOT use them?

-She has been wrong, and even deleted several accounts, like twitter, when proven wrong.

It's mostly good guessing and stating the obvious. I do not hate her, I don't even know her. But I have common sense enough to not trust her blindly, as you obviously do.

Take away your emotions and look at the facts. Simple, yet hard (it seems).

-We knew that it's a hybrid. From patents, but it was obvious that when they put together the handheld and home console divisions that it would happen, but the patents are enough.

You mean the hybrid rumors which 99.9% of the internet didn't believe? Including most people on this website? The one's that everyone discredited as being bullshit save for a handful of people including Peer Schneider, Emily Rogers and the guys from Eurogamer?

Also, there were NO hybrid patents before these rumors.

-Detachable controllers... yeah...Patent again.

Again, no patent for that before the Eurogamer leak.

-It comes with USB2/3. Yeah. Standard.

That's NOT standard. She said the dock had 2x 2.0 and 1x 3.0. That's not a simple guess. That's accurate as f*

-Weaker than the PS4/XO. It's Iwata's legacy, so it was not a big surprise really. (Not that it's bad, I love my Switch and it's games)

Nobody believed this either. I've been banned on certain websites and ridiculed on others for saying NX would be less powerful than Xbone. None of you believed that at the time. You all thought it was a PS4 Neo killer.

-Customized Nvidia chip. Again, no surprises. We knew all along after the official statement that Nvidia and Ninty were working together. That the chips is (somewhat) custom should not come as a surprise this time either.

The official statement from Nvidia came WAAAAAY after Eurogamer and Rogers made these claims.

-She was saying that Zelda would be delayed, but after the advertizing of both the Switch AND Zedla she suddenly said it will come to launch. Again freaking obvious that it would hit launch, not summer,.

Zelda has been in a state of flux pertaining to the launch because of troubles they've had with the Switch version, and especially the physics engine (Aonuma's words). So no, it was NOT obvious it would make launch.

You keep saying things are obvious but you failed to predict any of these yourself, as did every major gaming website. So not that obvious at all.

-"It uses Unreal 4 and Unity engions!" Do you think the people at Nintendo are retarded? What new gaming platform, in this time of gaming, would NOT use them?

The Switch is about a fifth the power of a Xbone. It struggles to run BotW (a graphically not impressive game). Nintendo has a history and is the prime example of making weird and sometimes blatantly stupid decisions. So in no way was it obvious Nintendo would go full support on those engines.

I stress again, you keep saying things are obvious after the facts, but you never once predicted any of this.

-She has been wrong, and even deleted several accounts, like twitter, when proven wrong.

Of course some things didn't pan out, she REPORTS RUMOURS AND RUMBLINGS. Also, most of her deleting account and going silent was for the greater part due to harassment.

Take away your emotions and look at the facts. Simple, yet hard (it seems).

You can't take away emotions, it's emotions that makes you feel the need to keep this fight going.

On top of that. Let's NOT even hypothetically take emotions out of this. Because that's exactly what's wrong here. It's because first people hate on Emily Rogers out their own butthurt feelings, and then people like you completely lack any form of empathy towards women being mistreated in this industry and community.

I also want to make a note of your hypocrisy. You said me calling you a liar was a low blow before in the same post making the claim I was somehow in love with Emily Rogers.
Then you "called out" another poster for using a "trigger word to win a discussion" pertaining to sexism, while at the same time you use the triggerword of "fanboy" to try to shut me up.

So, basically. You never guessed or predicted any of the supposed obvious Switch attributes. You lack the empathy to see the tremendous problem going on here.
Then you put all your eggs in the logical facts basket and completely fail to fact-check your claims yourself. AND you call out other people for doing things you then do yourself in the same comments.

Nuff said I think.

Dude! You're obsessed! Will you finally understand that I do NOT hate Emily? I just do not trust her rumours. And easy with your selective reading skills. Some things, as said, were obvious, like it being weaker than the PS4, or the hybrid thing etc. At least for me. Want me to predict? There will be a Switch 2/NEW Switch (or whatever name they give it) and will be a stronger Switch with some exclusive games ;)

And seriously, man, Calm down! It's not hatred towards Rogers, nor you.

"Nuff said I think."

If that makes you feel better, then by all means, but I do think you have gotten a lot of this wrong.

Work this out in your head about BoTW, I'm sure at one point Nintendo didn't think they could pull off play testing and localization in time due to fact it was their first open world game this massive. Now could it be possible that Emily got informed of this debate within Nintendo and ran the story? I don't think she ever 100 percent say it was gonna be delayed. She said that it looked really possible from the information she heard. Fortunately for us Nintendo trusted it's employees and got the job done. Now we can't be 100 percent sure they had those convos but Nintendo is a business I'm sure they discussed all scenarios.

My point was that Nintendo were advertizing the game A LOT before the Switch event. For me it was obvious that Nintendo had been working hard to hype the Switch and te game for release, or they would not have been showing it of so much (What's the name? Jimmy F show? (as an example)).

When Nintendo joined their handheld and home console divisions most people, including me, got the idea of a "hybrid". It was almost given.

My point is that a lot of this was more obvious than not. She might have contacts, but as said, they ight not be as robust as some want them t be. But hey! I really do not like these Rabbids rumours (Let's get back on-topic here). The game sounds boring so far. The BG&E2 rumours and the Bayonetta 3 hinting is more my slice of cherry pie.

Do you think we might see any of these (also Rabbids) games at E3?

I still don't get the hate for Emily Rogers. She completely nailed the rumors about Switch in detail. But nope, one or two things ahe says don't come to fruition and imediately she's a hack. People need to realize these folks report on rumblings and rumors, not news and factoids. So of course its not all 100%. But if you were to rank these people based on accuracy and the things they got right, Emily Rogers would be at the top. While Liam Robertson would be at the bottom. But even if she's right again on this, the haters will somehow turn it into a wrong.

Emily has gotten just about as many things wrong as she has gotten right. Both her and Liam Robertson need to fact check their sources a lot more thoroughly. Getting THE BIG SCOOP first doesn't mean anything if half or more of what they say is complete fabrication.

The hate, or at least how I see it comes mostly of how their rumours get taken for truth by viewers and journalists alike, and it only creates a lot of misinformation.
"Mario Kart 8 DX will have 16 extra tracks" and "Mother 3 is on the final stages of localization" are two big ones that come to mind.

Again. They deal in rumours, not facts. As Emily herself put it, she reports on things she's been hearing down the grapevine. She never claims to know the truth, just reports on rumours.

If people think something she said is wrong and get mad about that, that's on them completely. Has little to do with her being wrong, as she was , by her own admission, reporting on rumours and rumblings.

And damn, I do NOT like going here because In definitely not 'one if those people', but I really think there's a sexist thing going on in the case of Emily Rogers. People on this site really rarely react as strongly as they do when Emily Rogers is mentioned. I read the comments, and a lot of them are straight up lies. I've never seen thus kind of reaction with Serkan Toto or Liam Robertson, even though they both have a way worse track record than Emily.

And my problem is with how these rumours get taken as fact by a lot of people despite their questionable track record.
I see this as being because Emily is the one that gets reported the most often on, not because of the sexist boogieman argument, which is quite ridiculous to be honest.

When these people have been proven to have been wrong before just as much as they've been right, I think users are in their right to complain about these articles being posted all the time regardless of whether it's Emily or Liam or whoever.

And my problem is with how these rumours get taken as fact by a lot of people despite their questionable track record.

No one does this.

...not because of the sexist boogieman argument, which is quite ridiculous to be honest.

Sexist boogieman? Are you serious? Are you really blatantly dismissing the fact that sexism is a huge problem in the gaming community/industry? And are you really trying to deny that Emily Rogers has been attacked over and over because she is a woman in the gaming world?

If you really believe this.. Please stay away from women in general.

And now bringing the sexism argument full-force, and drawing up conclusions when no one even mentioned it before. All I can say is that if you seriously think this is because Emily Rogers happens to be a woman then you're horribly mistaken.
There's no point to keep arguing if you're going to keep throwing BS like that around. It's just going to end in disaster.

I really never bothered with hate for rumor-mongers (which, most of those leakers technically are), as some can be so over-elaborate to a point analysis just isn't worth it. Seriously, any of these people should be brought in with 5 ounces of salt regardless how accurate.

The hate is usually just tied to things they got right that the masses didn't want in the first place. So they get to a point of discrediting anything she has so they become obscure to people again. Which never happens.

Oh GOD no! A western IP meshing with a Japanese IP? No thanks. Yeah sure it can work for some but NOT in this case!

Why do you feel this is not a case of IP meshing working out together?

Idk...Mario with lunatic rabbits? Just doesn't seem right....

I’ll throw you guys one LAST bone.

Yeah, cheers Emily, you're too kind. The last few bones have been just so good and reliable.
