The latest E3 Switch rumors includes Fortnite, Dragon Ball FighterZ, Paladins, Overcooked 2, and "Killer Queen Black"


Back in the early days of GoNintendo, I used to fall for all kinds of rumors. You live and learn, I guess. I've gotten a lot better over the years, but I still make mistakes. Will this post be a mistake? We'll find out soon enough!

Our friends at Dtoid shared the above image, which supposedly leaks some reveals for Nintendo at E3. Some are games we've heard rumored already. Others are brand-new, including Overcooked 2 and Killer Queen Black. The sheet itself seems about as fake rumor as you can get, but there's a reason why we're sharing.

Our friends at Dtoid say they've received embargoed information leading into E3, and that information pertains to some of the games on the above image. In other words, even if this is a stab-in-the-dark rumor image, it's gotten some things right. To add some fuel to the fire, I will say that in particular, I have seen/heard things about Dragon Ball FighterZ that lead me to believe a Switch port is 99% happening.

So yes, a bit to mull over here. Take all of it as you will. Like I said, we won't have to wait long to find out if this sheet is the real-deal or another in a mile-high pile of fakes.

All these leaks going on are so sad. Sucks for people wanting surprises and sucks for devs wanting to have their moment in the spotlight showing off their games for the first time. Really hope they slow down before E3- something tells me they won't though.

They sound reasonable. I've heard the Fortnite rumour everywhere, it's probably true and we got confirmation earlier today that Switch is getting FIFA 19. Overcooked 2 would make sense. TBH, nothing there sounds particular dramatic or exciting, well for me at least.

Pretty sure this is legit I just hope Nintendo has a few more 3rd parties to announce than this at their E3.. Im excited to finally try out Fortnite but I have no interest in anything else here (besides Monster Hunter which we already knew about).

This list doesn't have Smash or Octopath, I doubt this is their full lineup or close to it.

Fortnite, DBFZ, and Paladins have been expected for so long that this isn't really spoiling anything, and the name "Killer Queen Black" says nothing beyond a name, unless its based on something IDK about. The only REAL spoiler here is overcooked, I think of all of these that announcement would have been the only surprise.

Ya, looking at it more, the only real surprises are Killer Queen Black and to a much lesser extent, Overcooked 2. I can't find a single thing on Killer Queen Black. Maybe that's what is convincing Destructoid that this is real, they may know something we don't.

It's based on the arcade game "Killer Queen".

Edit: NVM saw your other post!

I already have DBZF on PS4, but if it released on Switch, I'd buy it again

I don't think it's true, e3 is also the time of year to prove to everyone how good your skills are lol.
Also missing smash.

In any case I would no doubt play fortnite.

Disappointing to say the least.

EA made six N-Gage games if all they have to show is FIFA they can just go home. Also if this is all the big third party announcements I'm gonna be bummed out. Also I hate when they spend time talking about a game out in a week like Mario Tennis.

4 of the 9 are confirmed/we know about. They said if DB Xenoverse 2 sells good on Switch they'll port FighterZ. Well, XV2 sold pretty good I heard. Fortnite has been hinted at several times... Well this list is almost a given.

Really hope we'll see some great surprises though.

I've done some digging and if you're wondering what Killer Queen Black is then I think I might know. It looks like it may be a sequel to this:

The game's logo looks a bit like what's in the leaked photo. They may have changed things up for a sequel.

After googleing Killer Queen Black, that logo did hit my eye.

Looks like a very odd game from your link.

If Killer Queen Black is actually a port of the arcade game I'd go nuts. It's mostly at arcade bars and there's a solid niche community around the game. Here's some footage of the world championships last year.

Pretty good list of 3rd party games. I know a ton have been asking for Fortnite and Fighter Z on the Switch.

I'm assuming this page is showing the number of allotments each game has in Nintendo's E3 booth?
