RUMOR - Zelda attractions to replace Lost Continent section of Universal's Islands of Adventure

The gang over at ThemeParkUniversity say they've gotten some inside info on Universal's plans for Zelda-themed content at their parks. This info supposedly comes from multiple inside sources.

- Zelda section will replace the entire Lost Continent at Islands of Adventure
- will stretch from Seuss Landing all the way to Hogsmeade and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

- Universal decided to scrap the plans for Universal Studios Florida to get all the Nintendo content
- Nintendo content will now be at 3 locations: Universal Studios Florida, Islands of Adventure and the yet-to-be-named new park

- Zelda attractions were moved and expanded upon to Islands of Adventure

RUMOR - Two more characters discovered for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

Bandai Namco recently released the Extra Pack 3 for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. As soon as they did, dataminers started pouring through the details, and it seems they might have gotten a sneak peek at two characters making their way to the game in the future. Based on supers, ultimate moves, and evasive moves that were discovered, it would appear that both Gogeta and Broly will be added sometime in the future.

RUMOR - Diablo 3: Eternal Collection launching on Dec. 21st, 2018

Nintendo and Blizzard are yet to share a release date for Diablo III: Eternal Collection on Switch. Until we wait for an official announcement, we might have seen the date revealed through an online advertisement.

The banner above supposedly appeared online for a short time, and then vanished completely. As you can see, it shows a release date of Dec. 21st, 2018. That would definitely fit Nintendo/Blizzard's plan to release the game this year, but it's cutting things close!

UPDATE - GameStop also has the same date listed. Thanks to @averylail116 for the heads up!

RUMOR - Switch version 6.0.0 releasing very soon

With the Switch Online service launching in September, it wouldn't be surprising to see a new firmware update for the Switch to go along with it. According to the hacking community, that's exactly what's going to happen. Switch firmware version 6.0.0 is coming down the pipeline, with a release happening very soon. We don't have any specifics on what the update will include, but obviously it'll have features pertaining to the Switch Online service.

RUMOR - Fourth Nintendo Labo kit may see release this year

Nintendo Labo already has its third kit on the way, which we know to be the Vehicle Kit. Now rumor has it that a fourth kit could see release this year as well, and it would include some items that we've already seen in the original Nintendo Labo trailer. Toy-Con such as the camera and gun would be included in this package, and possibly more. It's not hard to imagine a fourth Nintendo Labo kit coming to Switch, and with the Vehicle Kit hitting in September, having one more launch before the year ends is certainly plausible.

RUMOR - Splatoon 2 Fork Vs. Spoon Splatfest hitting North America on Aug. 25th, 2018

While not official confirmed by Nintendo yet, it appears the next Splatoon 2 Splatfest has been revealed. Dataminers have supposedly discovered that the battle will be fork versus spoon, and it takes place on Aug. 25th, 2018. I don't know about you, but I'm not feeling this Splatfest. I like both these utensils, as I use them for different things! I'm not going to eat ice cream with fork, nor would I eat meat with a spoon!

RUMOR - King K. Rool's inclusion in Smash Bros. Ultimate was due to Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot results

Ever since the Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot came out back in 2015, a lot of people wondered if our votes actually mattered. While that's certainly up for debate when it comes to numerous characters, it seems that fans made a difference when it came to King K. Rool.

According to a recent episode of The Kongversation, a DK Vine Podcast, a long-running inside source claims that Nintendo was blown away by the fan support for King K. Rool. They had no idea so many people would vote for him on the Fighter Ballot, thinking the character didn't have much popularity. That groundswell of support was directly responsible for getting the character revived for Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Thanks to Bellboy for the heads up!

RUMOR - New Super Mario Bros. U/New Super Luigi U coming to Switch

One of the Wii U's first games could be making its way to Switch. Multiple inside sources are claiming that New Super Mario Bros. U, and the New Super Luigi U expansion could be seeing release on Switch in a single package. The compilation, called New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe, could hit the Switch at some point this year. Sources aren't 100% sure, but it seems that there might be some other bonus content included.
