Nintendo Switch Latest News & Update: 'Super Mario 3D,' 'Splatoon,' 'Skyrim' on Launch; No More 'Zelda'
Gamers are still in limbo about possible lineup for Nintendo Switch upon release, but there is a bit of luck in rumors circulating around that point to game roster. Mid this week seems to be the most vibrant with two prolific Nintendo leakers Laura Dale and Emily Rogers taunting titles that will be carried on release date.
If Dale sources are accurate, it appears that "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" is out of the equation already due to polishing that is needed. Nintendo Switch will rely upon the "Super Mario" game that was teased in "first look trailer" though. Dale added that this Mario is similar to earlier titles "Super Mario Galaxy" and Super Mario 64." This new Mario will sport a 3D world, replete with plot and multiplayer mode.
There is a bit contrast if Rogers' Nintendo Switch leak is given weight, however. Rogers said that Nintendo will boast "Mario Kart 8" with updates to appear brand new for Nintendo Switch. The game will sport new characters, new tracks, tweaked Battle mode and a possible DLC, BGR said.
What could be the biggest draw following "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild" hiccups in Nintendo Switch is "The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition." The game received remastered version for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One recently. This could be the same version to be ported for Nintendo Switch. VideoGames 24/7 reported that Nintendo will allow mods for their version but with similar limit to that of PlayStation 4.
There is a good reason for Nintendo Switch expectants to hope for "Splatoon" as well. Although originally a Wii game, "Splatoon" will be repacked for Nintendo Switch SKU. What could be a good thing coming off from this move is cheaper pricing and lesser internal storage.
To cap up, Nintendo Switch is still going to be laden with fantastic titles albeit Zelda's delay. Remember that there around 45 titles rumored to be eying upon Nintendo partnership and mind you, they are all AAA titles.
