Who's up for a juicy Nintendo Direct rumor?

The last 2 times 4chan had a rumor on a Nintendo Direct, it turned out to be right. I don't mean just a few things right here or there. I mean they nailed complete Nintendo Direct rundowns. Information was absolutely spot-on. I didn't share that information those last two times, and I now regret those decisions. Am I going to let the same thing happen again? Not a chance in hell!

With my luck, this rumor will turn out to be completely false. The thing is, there are a couple tidbits in here that give at least some tiny shred of believably. First up, the Funko information on a Pokemon collab is mentioned in the post. That's info we found out yesterday, but this post is dated July 10th. Second, the post goes into detail about Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC. Just today, we found out Nintendo has more in the works for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. With those two tidbits of noteworthy info, I'll share the full rundown with you.

RUMOR - Charles Martinet voicing Mario in Wreck-It Ralph 2

IMDB can be really hit-or-miss with information. I'm sure some of you will remember the craziness with a Legend of Zelda listing on there. That said, perhaps they've gotten some information that's spot-on this time. According to their listing for Wreck-It Ralph 2, Mario is going to be appearing in the film, and Charles Martinet will be handling the voice work. It would be great to see Mario appear in the sequel, since he wasn't part of the original.

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.

RUMOR - A look at various planned shipments for upcoming Switch games in France

As we say from time to time, France is certainly Nintendo country. The French seem to really dig what Nintendo does, and they're showing major love for the Switch. That means the country should get some sizable shipments of big-name games coming from Nintendo. With that said, here's a look at some rumored figures for initial shipments for upcoming Switch titles.

Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee - 300k for each version
Mario Tennis Aces - 120k
Captain Toad - 60k
Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition - 40k
Octopath Traveler - 30k

RUMOR - Another round of info on StarFox Grand Prix

We still don't know if StarFox: Grand Prix is legit, but the rumored info keeps flowing. Now we have a batch of details from Liam Robertson, who's known to share leaked/inside info in the past.

Liam reached out to use to make something very clear. The details below are the rumors he has heard going around, and isn't claiming them to be 100% true. They could indeed end up being true, but as of right now, it's just speculation.

- The game is not like F-Zero
- He’s seen a more complete version of the logo
- The game is based on the arwing (which differentiates it from F-Zero)
- He was told the title “Star Fox Grand Prix” was a tentative title
- The game is a mixture between classic Star Fox and racing
- You shoot enemies to propel forward and get combos; you can shoot other players too
- Each Grand Prix is three tracks with a boss fight- where the boss comes onto the track
- It has a big hub area where you can interact with the Star Fox characters
- You pick up new missions at the hub and there’s story content to go through
- The game looks really really good in motion
- He also heard Retro was considering adding cameos like Donkey Kong
- heard it was a 2019 game, but wouldn’t be surprised if it was a 2018 game

Thanks to ReyVGM and Bob for the heads up!

Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu & Let's Go Eevee domains registered by trademarking company

This could either be some proof that the Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu & Let's Go Eevee rumor being true, or someone sneaking in to squat on some domains.

If you were following the Pokemon rumor from yesterday, the inside scoop is that the Pokemon title heading to Switch was Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu & Pokemon Let's Go Eevee. Today we see that CSC Corporate Domains have registered domains for both games. CSC Corporate Domains is a legit company that secures domains for all different companies, but we can't say for sure that Nintendo, Pokemon Co., or Game Freak are tied to this request. What we can say is that Nintendo has worked with them in the past to secure domains, including the domains for Pokemon Sun and Moon.

If the rest of the rumor is true, we should be seeing an official reveal of the Pokemon Switch title later this month. That'll certainly give us some insight into whether these domain registrations are legit!

Thanks to NintenDaan for the heads up!

RUMOR: Upcoming Pokemon Nintendo Switch game to be titled "Pokemon Let's Go! Pikachu"

I guess this is the week of big-name Nintendo leaks. Yesterday gave us Retro rumors, and today we have some supposed information on the Pokemon titles coming to Switch. Again, take all this with a grain of salt.

- names of both games are Pokemon: Let's Go Pikachu and Pokemon: Leg's Go Eevee
- will be remakes of Pokemon Yellow
- set in the Kanto region
- Ash won't be the main character
- Ash and Blue will be the rivals to a new protagonist that the players will control
- Pokemon will follow their trainers and the PokeRide function from Pokemon Sun and Moon will return
- will integrate your Pokemon GO account
- catching a Pokemon will be similar to how Pokemon are caught in Pokemon GO

RUMOR - Pokemon Switch to be formally revealed this month

We all know there's a Pokemon game coming to Switch, but what will it be? Looks like we could be getting that info this month, if the latest rumor is to be revealed. The latest claims say that the titles will be revealed sometime before the end of May, and yes, there will be two versions of this Pokemon Switch title. On top of that, supposedly the naming/branding of these titles could end up being quite a talking point.
