RUMOR - Sonic Mania could be getting a content patch

Looks like we could be getting some new content for Sonic Mania. The information found via Steam above looks to indicate a free content patch on the way. Obviously nothing official, but a good sign. Let's see if SEGA jumps in and confirms things soon!

Thanks to FangztheWolf for the heads up!

RUMOR - Eurogamer details what happened to the unconfirmed Pokemon Stars

Remember the Pokemon Stars rumor? Eurogamer had said that a revamped version of Pokemon Sun/Moon were coming to Switch, and would be called Pokemon Stars. Obviously now that's not happening, as we know a true installment in the Pokemon franchise is coming to Switch. What happened to Pokemon Stars? Eurogamer put together another feature with inside info from various unnamed sources.

- Stars was part-developed in parallel with Sun and Moon
- the goal was to get the game to Switch early to help the platform succeed
- the Switch found success early on with other games, and the success only grew
- there was a desire to give the 3DS something big this year as well, which lead to Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon
- Pokemon Stars was never a truly big leap in Pokemon games, which might have been a bit disappointing on Switch
- development on Stars switched course around the end of last year

RUMOR - Burnout Paradise remake coming to Switch

Could Burnout Paradise be coming to the Switch? Word of a potential remaster popped up today when a Brazilian listing showed the game as in the works for Switch, PS4, and Xbox One. On top of that, a retailer also listed the games as coming for a short time.

If this is real, the most interesting thing would be the publisher. For those who don't know, EA is the publisher, and they certainly haven't been too forthcoming with Switch projects.

RUMOR - Still hope for Soulcalibur 6 on Switch? (UPDATE)

UPDATE - It seems Bandai Namco have the "Console' tag on multiple games, including ones we know to be single platform. Guess we're back to just crossing our fingers.

Yes, we heard the rumor of Soulcalibur 6 coming to Switch awhile back. We never posted it on GoNintendo, as we weren't too sure the sources were legit. Then, as you know, Soulcalibur 6 was announced recently, but there was no mention of Switch. That's the end of that, right? Perhaps not, as the official website might give a tiny tidbit of hope for a Switch version.

The image above comes from the Soulcalibur 6 website. PS4, Xbox One, and PC are all listed, as expected. Then underneath, we see a generic listing for "console". Why on earth is that there? Seems odd to just put a listing for 'Console' under that info. We've seen some companies hold off on announcing Nintendo versions of games until special events/later dates. Could that be what's going on here?

Thanks to Jumpman for the heads up!

Diving into the rumor of the Super Game Boy 2

The internet is loaded with all kinds of rumors and mysteries, and today, one of those mysteries reappeared in regards to a long lost American version of Nintendo's Super Game Boy 2 that no one has ever seen. The question stands about whether or not this item actually exists, but today you can join me on my six month adventure to discover for yourself whether or not such a peripheral exists.

Thanks to MarioCheated for the heads up!

RUMOR - Super Mario Cereal, complete with amiibo functionality, on the way (UPDATE)

Oh dear lord, PLEASE let this be true! Rumor has it that Kellogg's is coming out with Super Mario Cereal. The cereal includes oat pieces with colored marshmallow Stars, Super Mushrooms, 1-Up Mushrooms, and ? Boxes. Even better, the box itself can serve as an amiibo! This sounds too good to be true, so let's hope it is!

So there's info that points to this both being fake and real. First off, it was posted over on the amiibo subReddit, which some people think points to it being fake. Second, a cereal blog says they've been doing research which points to it being real. I don't know which way to go with it right now!

UPDATE - Looks like we have even more evidence for this being real!

RUMOR - Paladins might be heading to Switch

Paladins is a "team-based shooter with strategy elements and deep character customization," according to the Early Access Steam page. It seems like a title Switch fans want to see on the platform. This might be why Todd Harris, Hi-Rez co-founder, was asked about the potential for it happening. At the time of asking, Harris said the team was focusing on other versions.

Now here's where things get interesting. The latest beta version of the game on Steam has some interesting tidbits tucked inside the data. Apparently some config files have been found which specifically mention/pertain to a Switch version. Looks like the team might have finally found some time for Switch!

RUMOR - WWE 2K18 will be a surprise launch on Switch, due out by Tuesday at the latest

Years from now, we'll get insight into why 2K was being so strange with WWE 2K18 on the Switch. An ex-employee will share details, and we'll finally have answers about the entire mess. Unfortunately for now, we are left to try and figure things out on our own. That's exactly what the hardcore fans over at the WWE 2K18 forums have been doing.

Through some snooping and various sources, WWE 2K18 forum-goers seem to have discovered that the game will be a "surprise launch" on Switch. What on earth does that mean? Well, from what we understand, it could hit the Switch as early as today, or as late as this Tuesday. Retailers like GameStop are expecting their shipments extremely soon, according to inside sources.

At this point, I just want to play the damn game. I don't care if it's a surprise launch or not. I just want it in my hands!

Thanks to Daveomac for the heads up!

RUMOR - Did WWE 2K18 get a stealth Switch release?


We're hearing some very odd reports coming out about WWE 2K18. First off, we have the video above. I think it's a bit fishy, but apparently the game has seen release in Poland. Then we're also hearing reports from people that you can find the game at places like Walmart in the states. Then on top of all that, our own NintenDaan had noticed that an online retailer said the game was available now, but was sold out online.

WWE 2K18 on Switch has been shrouded in mystery almost right after it was announced. We haven't seen any footage or screens, nor have we gotten an official release date. Could the game really be out in the wild right now? Huge thanks to the many of you who brought this to my attention!

RUMOR - Game Freak looking to do something "disruptive" with the next Pokemon game

The gang over at Easy Allies have some info they say comes from trusted sources, and it pertains to the next Pokemon game. Word has it the team has been inspired by the success of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey. Those two games, which certainly did a number of things differently for their respective franchises, have Game Freak thinking about breaking away from norms for the next Pokemon game. Whether that is the Pokemon Switch title or something else remains to be seen.
