RUMOR - Details on Super Nintendo World's "Yoshi Omnimover" ride

All aboard Yoshi!

Nintendo and Universal have been extremely tight-lipped on information about Super Nintendo World. The two companies are working together to build the theme park attraction in secret, barely sharing any information since the collaboration's original unveiling. That leaves us looking to theme park insiders to give us any information on what could be going down with the park's attractions.

The gang over at Orlando Park Stop seem to have gotten their hands on a slew of information about the Yoshi Omnimover Ride, which will be just one aspect of the Super Nintendo World plans. Of course, we can't vouch for this information, nor will Nintendo comment on whether the details are legitimate or not. Rather than feed you all the information here, we figured we'd share a link and let you dive in at your own risk. Again, please note that this is all rumor for now, and should be taken lightly. Check out the rundown of details here.

RUMOR - Another Yo-Kai Watch game coming to Switch after the launch of the Switch Lite

More already?!

We are now hearing that this might be a port of the original Yo-Kai Watch to Switch. Thanks to WolfStarSonic for the heads up!

Yo-Kai Watch 4 hit the Switch in Japan just a few weeks back, but could there be more Yo-Kai Watch on the way to Switch? According to the latest rumor, that is indeed the case.

The rumor states that the Switch is getting more Yo-Kai Watch content, but not until after the Switch Lite launches, which is Sept. 20th, 2019. One would imagine that this game could be a 'complete' version of Yo-Kai Watch 4, which would make a lot of sense knowing that a localized version of Yo-Kai Watch 4 is on the way. That's just speculation for now, but we'll keep our ear to the ground and share any other details we hear.

RUMOR: Nintendo FCC filings from Nintendo point to new processor/flash storage chips for the Switch

Not an XL revamp, but still noteworthy

Nintendo said earlier today that they're not working on an XL-style update for the Switch right now. That doesn't mean that other things aren't going on though. Thanks to some FCC filings from Nintendo, we can see that Nintendo is planning on reworking the guts of the regular Switch moving forward.

According to the FCC filings from Nintendo, the original Switch is getting a new processor and new flash storage chips. In particular, this was a “Class II Permission Change” with the FCC, which allows for tweaks to an existing gadget without having to go through the certification process all over again.

RUMOR - Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled datamining reveals new characters on the way

We know that Spyro is coming to Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled in the future, but could there be other characters on the way? A dataminer claims to have found mention of quite a few characters in the game's latest update, and they might be joining the playable roster sometime later in the year. The list of datamined characters is as follows.

- Baby Coco
- Baby Cortex
- Baby Crash
- Baby N.Tropy
- Baby-T
- Chick (CTTR)
- Emperor Velo (CNK)
- Gnasty Gnorc (Spyro)
- Hunter (Spyro)
- Nina Cortex (CTTR)
- Pasadena (CTTR)
- Rilla Roo (Bash)
- Ripto (Spyro)
- Sorceress (Spyro)
- Spyro
- Stew (CTTR)
- Von Clutch (CTTR)
- Willie Wumpa Cheeks (CTTR)

RUMOR - Switch Mini accessory from Bigben leaked

Okay, now things are getting serious

We've had a random Chinese manufacturer claiming that they're working on Switch Mini accessories based on secret information, which didn't exactly have people feeling like the info was legit. Now we have something a bit more trustworthy, as it's supposedly from well-known UK accessories publisher, Bigben. As you can see above, they appear to have a silicon sleeve in the works, and the box itself says Mini Switch on it. As long as this item is legit itself, you can't get anymore clear-cut than that!

There was also a render leaked as part of this Bigben project, which shows how the sleeve would look on the Switch Mini. We'll try to get comment from Bigben on this situation to see if they confirm the leak.

Thanks to Sebastian for the heads up!

RUMOR: Chinese accessory maker claims to have Switch mini accessories in production

Too good to be true?

Here's something we know to be fact. Accessory makers will often get hardware dimensions/specs early in order to create accessories for up-and-coming devices. That's about as far as facts go in this instance.

As seen in the Tweet above, a Chinese company is claiming to have a set of Switch mini accessories in the works. Their website even has a full rundown of what they plan to make. We know the design of the Switch in the pictures is a fan mock-up, but I guess that's the best they can use right now to represent what they're making.

Now, would a random Chinese accessory manufacture really get the heads-up on a Switch mini? I guess it's possible, but it seems rather unlikely. Still, they have an entire lineup of items on their site, so if they're creating these accessories based on a hunch, they're about to have a big problem on their hands!

RUMOR - DOTA Underlords is coming to Switch

Is Valve's latest set for Switch?

Rumor has it that DOTA Underlords, a "stand-alone game that pits you against seven opponents in a battle of wits that will have you building, combining, and leveling-up a crew in a battle of dominance for the city of White Spire," is making its way to Switch. That info comes straight from the DOTA Underlords website, which originally had mention of Switch on its page, but seems to have removed that content. As a matter of fact, the entire site itself has reverted back to nothing more than a splash page for what's to come. I guess we'll have to hang tight a bit more to see if somehow this was a mistake, or a leak of an announcement.

Retailers add Metroid and Pikmin Switch placeholders to their websites

We'll find out the truth in a few minutes!

With less than a half-hour to go before today's Nintendo Direct E3 2019, retailers are still making decisions that have us speculating up to the last minute. A Swiss retailer has added up a listing for Pikmin 4 on Switch, complete with some random, fan-made cover art. On top of that, Walmart has added a listing for Metroid with a placeholder cover. Will either of these pop up during today's Direct? we'll find out VERY soon!

Thanks to Dondom95 for the heads up!

RUMOR: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch coming to Switch Fall 2019

Ni No kiddin?

Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch hit the PS3 in Japan back in 2011, and rumor has it that the title is returning for Switch. A supposed leak points to a re-release of the title for Switch, and it'll launch sometime in Fall 2019. This seems to be a pretty straightforward port of the PS3 game when it comes to Switch, but the rumor also states that a "remastered" version with higher resolution will see release on other platforms.

Thanks to Olivia for the heads up!

RUMOR: Spyro Reignited Trilogy coming to Switch on Sept. 3rd, 2019, Spyro playable in Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled

Spyro's pulling double duty

We've got a very special double-rumor for you today, and the source is...us! We have a tipster who's reached out to us to share this information, and we feel quite confident in it. I've gone through the source's previous tips to us over the years, and I'll be damned it they weren't spot-on. We're talking about tip after tip sharing inside info, and they all panned out.

As I said, this is a double-rumor, but both tidbits pertain to Spyro. First up, we hear that the Spyro Reignited Trilogy is going to make its way to Switch. Many fans saw this as a given, especially considering how Nintendo UK had an entire page dedicated to the game on their online store at one point, only to be yanked quickly after. It seems it'll finally be time to talk about that port, as it's set to hit Switch on Sept. 3rd, 2019.

On top of that, Spyro will be swooping in on the upcoming Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled as well. He'll be tucking the wings in for a stint in a kart, becoming a playable character. We're not sure about the specifics on how to obtain him, and instead only have base knowledge of his appearance as playable in the game.

You won't have to wait long for confirmation on these tidbits. Both are said to have reveals coming at this year's E3, so we'll find out next week!

HUGE thanks to our anonymous source for the info.
