RUMOR - SEGA lists Sonic Mania as a packaged retail game



This would be one of many, many examples of Sonic Mania being listed as a retail release. SEGA knows fans want to see that happen. It wouldn't be surprising to see it happen, but there's still nothing official at this time.

RUMOR - GameCube game listings have started to appear on Nintendo Europe's servers


Oh boy, here we go. Looks like there might be a little cause for excitement. You know, as long as this info is true. No idea why these listings have appeared. We can certainly take one big guess as to why, but that would be speculation. Let's hope this turns out to be the real deal! Thanks to The_Ninjadillo for the heads up!

RUMOR - Nintendo had Walmart cancel their SNES Classic Edition preorders



The reason I say rumor is, customer service doesn't often seem to have the correct information. We've seen customer service provide incorrect info numerous times in the past. That said, if this is the truth, Nintendo will most likely never say.

RUMOR - Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth sequel incoming?

Could a sequel to Persona Q be in the works? While Atlus hasn't made any official announcements, some internet snoopers found something interesting. The domain pq2.jp is now on the nameservers Atlus uses for their websites. Why bother doing that if there's not something to announce for the series? Now let's seen if this bit of fan sleuthing turns out to be spot-on.

RUMOR - Is a Switch glitch to blame for some lesser-quality visuals in portable mode?

Some people have made note of how a few games on Switch look quite a bit "fuzzier" when in handheld mode. Many said this was due to a lower resolution being used for the mode, and indeed, many devs do take this approach. With that said, could the visuals actually be hurt even more by a Switch glitch?

The following is a supposed response from WayForward concerning the visuals in Shantae: Half-Genie Hero when it portable mode. The rep which responded points to an issue with the Switch itself as the culprit.

"Thanks for writing in, and for the kind words. I'm sorry for the super delayed response, but this is something I had to check on for you and it took a while for people to get back to me. We believe this is a problem with the Switch software itself. One of the guys had it happen with a different game following a recent system update. We're hoping that a future update will resolve the issue for everyone and have the game looking as crisp and clear again as it should!"

Has anyone else out there experienced an issue like this? Notice a downgrade in portable visuals after the latest firmware update?

RUMOR - Latest Wii U firmware update points to the end of Miiverse



Apparently the line of text above was added as part of the latest Wii U firmware update. The service hasn't ended yet, but it's clear Nintendo is going to make the move fairly soon. A wonderful Wii U feature we'll certainly be sad to go. Thanks to T27Duck for hte heads up.

RUMOR - NES emulator found in Switch firmware


With the plans for NES games to hit Switch down the road, it's not really surprising to see something like this on the system. Now we just sit and wait to see when Nintendo will let us actually use the thing!

RUMOR - IGN says Ubisoft is having trouble bringing Steep to Switch

We've all been wondering what's up with Steep on Switch. Ubisoft hasn't really said much about the game since it was confirmed for Switch. While they still remain quite, IGN says inside sources tell them the port process is not going smoothly. As a matter of fact, Nintendo has stepped in to help Ubisoft get things up-and-running, especially when it comes to the online aspect.

Furthermore, a source not willing to be named told IGN that the game may end up missing out on Switch altogether. Thanks to Johannes for the heads up!
